This week, please welcome Arden Prucha Photography who is so great for sharing her newborn pullbacks and tips with us.
I do not currently have a studio and am still in the process of deciding if it would be an asset for my business. I am here to share some tips from beginning to end that have been helpful for me in the process of newborn photos.
Communication: Once a client emails me about the session, I let them know that I like to capture the baby within the first seven days. Communicating that with the parents is key, so I give them a prep list prior to my arrival. Have all items that you are interested in using in the shoot out and ready for me to sort through:  baskets, blankets, hats, headbands, etc. If you would like to be in images with your baby, make sure to look nice and wear colors that compliment your setting. Get Organized: Make sure you have all of your goodies in totes and broken down as much and small as possible. Find your work style: It’s easy to want to shoot like the big newborn photographers – they have GORGEOUS and amazing work, but we should all be unique in what we create. I would also LOVE to answer any questions about this post or newborn sessions, so please comment below and I will be sure to answer! 3 hours is what I book as well {and I have gone over many times}, PLUS set up and clean up.
Thank you so much for all the helpful information and thanks for taking the time to make such a great post!


Love to hear your shoots can also be up to four hours my new mommies tens to enjoy the low stress timeline and laid back atmosphere.
I loved this post, and wondered if you painted the geometric backdrop yourself or whether it is fabric?
Let me say this blog post helped me TONS I did this for the first time yesterday and if it wasn’t for your suggestions it would have been a failed frustrating shoot. I had a question, but reading through the comments it seems the person who wrote this never came back to respond to anyone’s questions? Awesome post, has everything I can really think of in terms of taking professional looking pics for my babies!!!
New York Daily News Couple stages adorable newborn baby photo shoot with pet dog Couple stages adorable newborn photo shoot with dog These adorable newborn "baby" photos are just too doggone cute. I have three kids and with all the breaks that you have to take & all the set-up the time goes fast. I’ve never done a newborn session and a close friend of mine is getting ready to have her first.
I was wanting to know what lens you are using and what kind of lighting, other than natural light, you would recommend. I too was hoping for an idea of what lens you use most in those small some times dark in spaces. It was still hard ( it is completely different than one can imagine) I was able to be patient and used your warming the baby with your hands suggestions for posing.
Sometimes I pull my flash out – put it in a soft-box or umbrella and get some more creative shots.


Planning a long time actually makes it a lot less stressful to the mom, because there is a lot less pressure to get the perfect shots in a short time. I am a newbie photographer and I can’t afford to hire a professional one for my newborn photography.
I would say for someone who its their first time schedule more time than 3.5 hours just in case!
It is our job to get them mentally prepared early enough, so that it’s not a question after the birth. I was wondering if you would recommend any classes and which ones, also how you do your lighting, i love doing outdoor photos but live in the pacific northwest so it rains a lot here and is cold most of the time so indoor would be better.
Not many professionals are willing to offer up free photography advice, so it is nice to have kind people like you on Pinterest!
I love doing outdoor shoots but we live in the pacific northwest and get a lot of rain and cold weather and I have no idea how to set up lighting indoors. I know it would be easier in a studio space and you could have everything prepped prior to them arriving.
We all have our gifts, our pleasures and just because we photograph, doesn’t mean we photograph EVERYTHING!
