You don’t need a session full of props and themes and bright colors to have a gallery full of variety. Simplicity in newborn photography keeps the focus on the baby and maintains a timeless style. Baby will be happiest and calmest with less disruptions and it’s very simple to create a diverse collection of photos in this minimalistic style.
First off, the baby is in almost the exact same position for all these images. With minor adjustments, you can create a great variety of images with minimal disturbances to the baby.
Secondly, from this one pose, I can capture close-ups, full body images, macros, and incorporate parents’ hands.
By changing up my angle and moving my light, I can create different looks without having to move baby. If baby shifts a little, capturing those in-between moments can create a feeling of motion and make for a unique candid photo.
The result of some simple adjustments and moving around a bit, is a timeless gallery full of minimalistic and cohesive images!
Babies are perfect all by themselves! Keeping their photos simple allows them to truly shine. All those little details are best captured without a bunch of distractions.
