What is newborn photography and why is it so popular with families?
Newborn photography is in fashion. More and more families are deciding to take the first photos of their babies in a photography studio. Yes, and we say the first images because these types of photos are usually taken in the first 2 weeks of the baby’s life. This detail is essential to be able to position the baby more easily and recreate the positions he/she adopted in the mother’s womb before birth.
This type of newborn photos are very delicate and complex because they deal with babies who are only a few days old and because they are placed in very carefully studied positions.
Although within newborn photography, there is also another variant which are lifestyle sessions. In these sessions, a more natural photograph is taken where the baby is not posed and can even be taken in the family environment.
Whether it is newborn photography or lifestyle photography, taking the first photos of a baby is an exciting and very rewarding job and for the parents we know that it will be a unique memory of their newborn baby.
Props for newborn photography: the essentials
When setting up a newborn photography studio, in addition to cameras, lenses and lighting equipment, you will need to have a series of specific materials for this type of reportage. Here are some of them:
- Sets, decorations and backgrounds.
- Props: bowls, baskets, buckets, pushchairs, baby stands, blankets, flokatis, hats, headbands, wraps and baby clothes.
- Puffs and positioners.
- Articulated doll for practice.
- baby care and hygiene kit.

Training is always important but in this type of newborn photography sessions it is crucial to have a great knowledge and experience of how to position babies at such a young age, how to wrap them or simply how to calm them down during the shoot.
And although we are not experts in newborn sessions, we do want to give you a series of basic recommendations if you want to get started in newborn photography.
- Train with experts in the newborn discipline to teach you how to pose babies correctly and safely.
- Learn how to create original scenarios and compositions.
- Look for blankets, hats, headbands, bowls and other accessories for your sessions.
