I wanted to do a quick post talking a bit about newborn posing, for photographers and for expecting mom's! It is important that you know the consistency and the type of images you can expect from your newborn session with me. Each clients session will vary depending on your baby as I will only do poses that your baby considers comfortable. Colors and props will also vary based on our pre-session form. However there is a level of consistency in quality that you can expect from either your portrait session or your mentor session with me !
I am so excited to be speaking At PPANE this year and hopefully other associations as well. :)
I have complied some other blog posts to help show what each pose looks like
sometimes called the womb pose! this is one of my favorites and so many babies just love it once they are in it. If you'd like to see more variations of this pose and how I crop it check out this post here!
The Tushie up or Bum up pose
I do quite a few variations of this one as well as the side tush. You can see all kinds of examples of this pose here on this blog . This is a fairly common pose and I do achieve it with almost all my newborn sessions.
The Froggy pose
I consider this pose a 'bonus' pose some babies are great and fall right into it while others fight me. I do not ever promise to get this pose however I would say that 88% of my sessions do get this in their gallery to choose from or one of the variations of it .. check out that page here!
Chin on hands or head on hands
This pose can be done on the bean bag or in a prop. Most sessions will get 1 or both versions depending on baby. check out some of those here at this post.
Toes out wrapped
This is one of my favorite poses. I get this image even with awake babies! this is a staple pose in the newborn photographers handbag! Check out some other variations of the pose and croppings I achieve from this one set up!
The Potato sack Pose.
Such a fun pose This little guy to the left was a very large newborn. His cheeks are to die for! Check out the example session with potato sack here!
