I have put this together for all the ladies that can’t come into my studio due to the darn Coronavirus!!! I don’t want you to miss out on some lovely baby pictures, because your baby will be absolutely gorgeous and will change so quickly.
It is best to do the photos in the first few weeks if you can, I have heard it is difficult taking pictures of your own baby (maybe because they can smell your milk). Take your time, have a really warm room, (I use a little fan heater) also I use a Baby Shusher which makes shushing noises but you can also use a ‘white noise’ app on your phone. Do not attempt any special photographer poses because they need special safety training, just keep it nice and simple.
Equipment – iPhone, neutral blankets, window light, lots of milk, dummy if using one and Baby x
So firstly, look for some nice soft light, hot harsh bright sun and place your baby down with his/her head slightly towards the window as in the picture. You could use a bean bag, large foot stool, couch etc and pop a blanket over it. Never leave baby alone for safety reasons. This little one was so good, just slept through the whole session.
Take a picture from above making sure not to aim the phone/camera up the nose. as pictured below. The left one the is correct way.
Take the picture from different angles not forgetting the little hands and toes.
Then you could try a little hat and just lay a blanket over baby with maybe a little teddy eg. Please forgive me as the quality is not as good as a professional photo shoot as all the pictures have been taken and edited on my phone.
Then finally you could try some in a basket and also with Mum and Dad
I really hope this help and I would love to see your pictures.
I have also started a local Networking group ton Facebook to help Pregnant and new mums through this tough patch, I would love you to join in then we can support each other. Chorley Expecting & New Mums in Isolation
