Great photos are just a couple of clicks away. And to make things a little less overwhelming and a lot more doable, here are nine photography articles that will help you turn your photo duds into total delights. For all you artists and crafters out there, check out this #blog with great photography tips! Photographing my product has always been my weakness but this post is so great, I might actually cross this off my list of things to improve this year! 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!!! I love the pics and the whole post is great.Maybe I should start photo shooting immediately before my kids grow!
Parents who are conscious about photography of their newborn will definitely be benefited from your post.


A large proportion of the readers of Digital Photography School classify themselves as beginners – so we thought it might be helpful to have a page set up that collates some of our Digital Photography Tips for Beginners.
Below is just a selection of some of our digital photography tips and tutorials aimed more at the beginner photographer. Few things in life can be as rewarding as photographing babies- after coaxing an expression of cherubic joy - caught with a click. For the best baby shots, photograph during the daytime when there is plenty of natural daylight. Simple baby shots are usually the best; there is no need for cluttered or overly bright backgrounds. To take memorable pictures try to capture the baby engaged in an activity, or with family and friends. As well as a good camera, a standard lens of around 50mm is a good tool for baby portraits.
Babies offer a great opportunity for creating beautiful and treasured photographs, though they are by no means an easy subject! Your product shots are gorgeous, but it never hurts to get a little variety in there and experiment to see what works best with your photographs for capturing customer’s attention, driving more sales, getting more press mention, etc. However, I also want to share some even budget home studio where everyone can seek out at the local store , besides the white background seamless or waterproof material for studio , actually, glass also one of great material for product photography, may be just find anywhere from home that you have a flat glass table or so on , that you can do a balance composition via reflection of the glass too !
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.
I have done baby portraits quite a few times and this has been the best information I have found by far. You do not know what big help you’ve been, my friend had a baby and asked me to come take a few pics and had no idea how to do this. Here are some easy steps you can follow to take the perfect portrait of the apple of your eye. Dona€™t be afraid to keep the camera shooting rather than waiting for that perfect pose or moment because somewhere in 30 consecutive shots will be one winner. This can include making funny faces, playing hide and seek from behind a piece of cloth, or making goofy clucking noises. A great way to get a photo that looks professional is to get some white, grey or beige cloth and lay it over two chairs. Siblings, especially if they are close in age can add extra interest to the photograph a€“ get them playing together, eating or interacting as friends.


Turn the mode dial to AV (Aperture Priority) mode and select a large aperture for a soft and blurred background. 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.
Use window light if possible and avoid the harsh sun because it tends to casts shadows and is also unhealthy for the babya€™s skin. Therea€™s nothing worse than capturing a great moment that is slightly blurry because the shutter was too slow.
I would say for someone who its their first time schedule more time than 3.5 hours just in case!
Use continuous shooting mode on your camera to capture 2, 3, 4, or 5 photos in a couple of seconds. When shooting in monochrome consider contrast; black and white backgrounds will be the most striking, and contrast in the lighting will also give a dramatic effect. A beanbag rather than a tripod is great for stabilizing your camera and getting down on the ground to a baby's level, and a silver or white reflector is ideal for bouncing light so that it is soft and flattering. 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! Use the auto settings to make sure you get a sharp image, and let the camera choose flash if it is necessary.
A chaperone or helper will make all the difference so that you can focus on capturing the best moments. 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! Conversely, if you position the lens too low, the model will seem taller and the lower part of the model’s body (feet and waist) will seem wider. Backlight will occur if the background is too bright, resulting in the model seeming to dark in contrast.
