Mommy and Newborn Photoshoot in my Macomb Photography Studio
There is nothing quite like the bond between a mother and her newborn baby. Capturing these precious moments can create lasting memories for both the mother and the child. Here are some tips for taking beautiful mommy and newborn photos:
Natural Lighting: In my Macomb photography studio we have amazing natural light from our wall to wall windows. Great lighting is key for a soft, whimsical feel to your mom and newborn photos.
Keep It Simple: Newborns paired with new motherhood is naturally beautiful, so you don't need elaborate setups or props for these images to be emotional. Focus on the bond between the mother and baby, and let their connection be the main subject of your photos.
Capture Emotions: The emotions and interactions between the mother and baby are what make these photos special. Capturing the loving gazes, gentle touches, and tender moments between them. These genuine emotions will make the photos more meaningful.
Use Soft Textures: I incorporate soft blankets, wraps, and fabrics that create a cozy and comfortable atmosphere for the baby. These textures add depth and warmth to the photos.
Close-Ups: I love to get close up and capture the tiny details of the baby, like their tiny hands, feet, and facial expressions. These close-up shots can be incredibly endearing.
Candid Shots: While some posed shots can be lovely, candid moments can be just as precious. I always capture the mother and baby in their natural interactions, like breastfeeding, cuddling, or simply spending time together.
Different Angles: I use different angles and perspectives to capture unique shots. You will see me shooting from above, from the side, or from a lower angle to add variety to your photo collection.
Patience: Newborns can be unpredictable, and they might need frequent breaks for feeding, changing, and soothing. Know that I will be patient and flexible throughout the photoshoot, as the baby's needs come first.
Editing: After the photoshoot, I will carefully edit your photos in a warm, bold and emotional style that will bring you joy every time you view your gallery!
Gallery Delivery: When I am done editing I put your images into a gallery and send to you for viewing - you are able to download your images directly from this gallery and there is an option to print your photos from this gallery as well - I try to make this process simple and effortless for my new moms!
My main goal is to capture the genuine connection between the mother and newborn and give you timeless, beautiful photographs that you will cherish for years to come and share with your newborn through the years as they grow!
