Newborn/baby photography, like any other type of photography, is a complex art and involves taking beautiful portraiture of newborn babies or small babies.There are generally 3 types of styles when it comes to newborn photography, that we try to bring out in our sessions -being ‘posed’, ‘lifestyle’ and ‘fineart’.Also
Posed newborn photography typically involves about three to four hours to conduct, or more with the need for the baby to be in deep sleep for the photographer to pose the baby.
Time will be required to get the baby to sleep, for feedings, changing, soiled blanket removal, adjusting poses, adding props etc. All this must be done slowly and quietly so that the baby doesn’t wake up. Usually hats, bows,bonnets,wooden buckets, and knit pants are used as props.Some times the posed sessions are done outside the studio where there are lot of foliage or flowers or sunset or sunrise to add scenery to the picture.
Lifestyle newborn & baby photography takes less time and doesn’t need to be done when baby is between six to ten days of age. The baby need not be asleep always, and involves taking beautiful awake shots of the baby with
parents and siblings if any.
Fineart newborn & baby photography involves the production of images to fulfill the creative vision of a photographer using post production methods. It could bring simple artistic effects to a baby shoot, like say and baby dressed like angel and flying around clouds, or a baby placed inside a pearl or seashell.The execution of such photos takes meticulous preparation and techniques while photographing, and during post processing;.
The best time to photograph a newborn baby is when they are around 2 weeks of age. The babies tend to be easier to handle during this time rather than later. You may contact me at any time during your pregnancy, to give me an estimated due date, and I will then make a tentative booking. Then, When you arrive home from hospital with your brand new baby, you can contact us to arrange a suitable time and day for your session.
Babies older than two weeks might not curl up as easily or like their clothes off. But we do create beautiful portraits of them as well.The baby might be awake some times but if done correct, the results are just as beautiful as sleepy poses.We photograph babies up to an age of of 1 year or so.
If you are based in Bangalore, the baby photography sessions can be held at our home studio at Kammanahalli, Bangalore.
If travel is an issue for the mother and child or if location is outside Bangalore, I can have the sessions at your home at an extra cost.I usually work with my wife Gayatri, on all photo shoots. We use some of the finest quality props and materials to photograph the baby.
For newborn babies who are few weeks old, sleepy poses works the best. To encourage this, we recommend that babies are well fed before the shoot starts so that they sleep peacefully. Any number of breaks can be taken as needed for the baby to re-fuel 🙂 . Even if the baby refuses to sleep through out the session, we will take candid photos of the baby when awake.
Comfort and safety of the baby is paramount to us, and we take necessary precautions to ensure that. We always prefer to to have at least one parent around while shooting for relaxing the baby.Some of the shots would be posed artfully, while some of them would be candid.We make sure that none of the poses becomes uncomfortable for the baby.
Newborn photography sessions can take 3-4 hours or longer, allowing enough time for feeding and comforting. Some babies tend to be quieter and some little less so, and so we need the quality time to make sure that we get all the photos.
