Today’s newborn babies are no less cool when posing for the camera. The action of these babies is so cute. Of course, there are all tricks to make baby photoshoot look as natural as possible. For the best shots, try photographing the baby in the first 7 to 14 days of life. However, there are many things you need to prepare and pay attention to to get the best photos of your little bundle of joy. Sleep can be the perfect moment for photographing newborns. Because as long as your little one is asleep, Moms can change the pose at will. But this will be a big problem if your little one is several weeks or months old. It will take an extra struggle to make him fall asleep throughout the photoshoot. So, pay attention to the next tips.
Babies don’t like to be cold. Make sure to keep the room warm so the baby will feel warm and comfortable. A calm and comfortable atmosphere is very important to make shooting more productive. How to? For example, by turning on soft music. It’s quite a challenge to get the perfect shot. Try to keep it simple and basic at the start of the shoot. Just focus on our baby. Once you have succeeded with the basic photo, move on to something more creative. With every shot, lighting can make or break the result. If there are no supporting lights indoors, large windows can provide a very natural appearance of lighting.
If you have to borrow a professional camera from a friend, choose a DSLR with a professional lens. Babies are, of course, still fragile. Therefore we need to be careful when modeling our shots. Especially if we want to prioritize creativity. It is better for mothers not to be alone, aka asking for help from others when taking pictures of babies. The presence of an ‘assistant’ can help us to fix the position of the baby, pick up toys or props, make the baby smile, and also ensure that the little one stays safe.
