Tips in Doing Your Photography with a Newborn
While some enjoy looking at styled images of sleeping newborns in dress costume or appearing as though they are holding their own head up with the use of proficient Photoshop work, the emotions and stories being captured in images are what make my heart sing! So it might be better if you do the wedding newborn photography in Houston, TX on your own. So if you want to know some tips on capturing the baby, here are some of them:
Capture every detail
Whether the baby is crying heartily, yawning, or sleeping peacefully, they are all important and precious because the newborn stage is so brief. A yawn of a 4-day new infant, for example, looks different than a yawn of a 4-year old child, so photograph it all! Memorialize the details, including items in the nursery. Talk to the parents and find out what baby items are meaningful to them. Maybe the grandparent knit the blanket or the dog is considered the first-born!
Photograph them at home
Capturing images of the baby in his or her very first home means every backdrop and furniture will be meaningful in the photos. It also means every session will be unique since every home looks different than the other. This can be one very memorable moment that you have to keep in your lifetime with your newborn. So you better capture it!
Other photographers should keep in mind that their equipment is not as important as the person behind the camera when it comes to good imagery. This is still true with photographing newborns, however, you do need to have equipment that performs well in various indoor conditions, such as tight spaces and low light, A wide angle prime lens and a reflector are key. You should also have a macro lens to capture detail shots of the baby.
A lot can happen when you’re having a wedding newborn photography in Houston, TX, like having unexpected baby visitors looking over your shoulder or being spit on, pooped on, vomited on! Just remember, you can’t always prepare for what happens at a newborn shoot, so stay calm and take everything in stride. The first few days of a newborn’s life can be a hazy memory for new parents who are often sleep-deprived and running on adrenalin. Know that you are capturing a magical time for the family, and your photos of their life in that narrow slice of time will be treasured.
