The photography information that I have for you today is about a photography niche that I enjoy very much. I am talking about baby photography, the newborn baby photography. This is the type of photography that you have to capture in a short time window. newborn Photography time window is 10 days, the first ten days of the babies life. After the first 10 days most babies will lose the newborn baby curl.
Since you have to be able to catch these images within this short time frame you need to be aware of a few things that will really help you ensure that the photography session runs smoothly and does not waste precious time. As already said you have to be aware of the 10 day window and make sure that you take advantage of this time because this is the time where the baby will have their little rump in the air and you can almost mold the baby into the got to love them pose. You want to capture that perfect pose, the once in a lifetime pose.
Coordinating with the mother before hand is very important because you need to set up the session for the babies sleepiest time. This will be the easiest time to photograph the child. Of coarse no one could know more about this time of day than the mother and while you are with the mother setting up the shoot, ask the mother to dress the baby in loose clothing. By not having to pull the garment over the babies head you can remove the clothing without disturbing baby to much. Also you want to advise mother how she can help with the posing and the rest of the session.
Having this set up before the actual session will make the session go a lot smoother and smooth is what you want. Remember that the baby can pick up on any stress or tension and you do not want the little one getting upset and cranky. If this was to happen you may have to cancel the shoot for the time being and cut your loses.
There are a few basic things that you can do to ensure that you have a great session. One of these things is as easy as making sure that the room is warm for the baby. The temperature of the room is recommended to be around 75 degrees. Baby is not use to running around in the buff and a cold baby is not a happy baby.
