Below you will find the typical poses and workflow that I go through in each session. In most Simple and Deluxe Collection sessions, we can achieve the majority of these poses, but of course it always depends on the baby. Most Basic sessions include wrapped poses and family/sibling images are time permitting. Not all babies are able to do every pose- some may not enjoy their back or tummy. Every session is led by the baby, and I will never compromise safety to achieve a certain image.
Have a look at the poses below, and you can specify any preferences in your questionnaire. Each pose also allows for 3-5 additional angles, close ups etc. One pose yields between 3-6 images.
Back Lying Pose
Side Lying Pose
Bum Up Pose
Head On Hands
Additional Poses that may be done on the beanbag (if requested- time permitting, most of these additional images are composites)
Whether you choose me or another photographer to capture these precious first days of your baby's life, I cannot stress the importance of safety enough. Your tiny new baby is delicate and oh-so-precious, and needs to be treated as such in her newborn session. When looking for a photographer, be sure to ask the necessary questions to ensure that your little one is in good hands, and don't let price dictate your decision. As stated on other pages of my site, safety always takes priority in my sessions, and your sweet baby will always dictate the images that we create. A lot of my work is composited in photoshop, and I generally have an assistant present (trained by me) in each newborn session. Where an assistant is not available, mom or dad will be asked to spot or stand by during the session. The baby is always within arms reach of someone and never left unattended in a pose.
I look forward to working with you and photographing these exciting (and fleeting) moments!
