Inspire Me Baby on Pinterest, We learned a lot from Violet's and we felt prepared for Oliver's. I am going to show you pictures from both shoots.
- Adorable squishy newborn, within 10 days of birth
- Camera, no flash
- Plenty of props and backgrounds
- As much natural light as possible
- Plenty of people to hold backgrounds
For the camera we use my Dad's fancy pants DSLR camera but I think you could still get great photos with a point and shoot. I take all of Violet's weekly photos and most of her other ones with my point and shoot. So you can use the camera you have.
This is the basic set up below. Also for safety, make sure someone is always within reach of the baby even though they are not mobile you want to be cautious.
A pacifier is super handy if the baby takes it, we set up a shot, lay down the baby and sometimes give the pacifier to settle them down. Another hint is to lay the baby down and to snuggle them a bit, or put your hands around them so they feel safe.
My favorite of Oliver.
