5 Quick Tips for Newborn Photography
They say never to work with animals and children, and that certainly applies to photography – where having a wriggly and awkward subject certainly doesn’t make life any easier.
But of course not taking photos of your newborn child is simply not an option. In fact, most of us will want to take countless photos of them.
With that in mind then, this begs the question: how do you ensure those pictures come out looking amazing? Here are a few points to consider.
1. Make Them Laugh
The first point should really go without saying. While babies are always cute, they are certainly at their very cutest when they’re grinning or laughing. Your mission as photographer then, is to make sure that you get them to crack that grin.
This can be easier said than done, because it means that you now have to split your attention between the phone screen and keeping your sprog happy! This is why having someone on hand to help out can make this part a lot easier.
2. Make Sure They’re Clean
Disappointing to say the least is taking what you think is a beautiful photo of your darling son or daughter, only to then look closer and see that they have dribble all around their mouth. Or perhaps that their bib is completely soaked.
Other little points like getting their hair out of their face can also go a long way to making the photo better overall. Of course, this doesn’t work unless the photo is a staged one.
3. Consider Props
Think about props when taking photos of your baby. A lot of baby photos tend to be pretty samey, with children smiling at the camera, sitting laughing… you get the gist.
So why not making things more interesting by adding in a prop? That could mean perching them on a cute seat, or it could mean giving them an interesting toy to play with. This is a great option when you get a new toy, and it will help your photos to stand out in the album.
4. Lighting and Composition
These are two points you should consider no matter what type of photography you are taking. Lighting means setting the scene so that your child will be lit in an interesting way and won’t be washed out. Putting them by a window can make a huge difference for instance.
Meanwhile, composition means ensuring that your baby isn’t a small blob in the corner of a messy scene, but is rather shot in an interesting manner that draws the eye.
Finally, think about the background of your shot. New parents can struggle a little to keep the home clean and tidy, and this can undermine otherwise great photos. Don’t have time to set up your own photo studio for your baby? That’s fine – but consider using macros to bring your baby into focus and blur out all that distracting background. Or just choose your angle carefully! This can go a long way to making a photo more useable and sharable.
