Natural Newborn Photography With Elle

Sleeping baby in mother's hands

Natural newborn photography is a baby-lead session where there is a lot less ‘required’ from the baby. Posing is very natural, letting the hands gently fall where they want. The body lays naturally rather than artificially posed. Fingers rest in a neutral position to give a relaxed look. These are the details I look for when allowing the baby to lead the session. The setting in particular is very plain. Accessories are non-existent, although they don’t have to be. It was a special request for this session that the baby be very natural. Conceptually I love the idea, it gives the images a very modern and clean look. It helps to prolong their shelf-life too when there aren’t any accessories or poses that could ‘age’ the photo. Perhaps one day tutus won’t be cute on a newborn… lol. Ok, but seriously…

Natural newborn photography also lends itself to other applications. For instance, the above composite works because the baby was photographed using natural light. There is a lack of shadowing which compliments the even nature of the digital backdrop. The baby is simply an overlay. The result is a seamless image if blended properly.
