My newborn flow of poses
This is how I pose my newborns and what works for me. Hopefully it will be a start for you until you find your flow.
I have 5 MAIN poses that I do: side taco, feet under on belly, pray pose(these seen in picture below) and 2 “prop shot” poses (I will have a separate post for prop shots-don’t worry) Optional or upon request head in hands pose (makes 6).
With these poses I get about 6-7 pictures all looking very different by changing my position and tilting my camera giving a nice tilt and don’t forget face shots. You can read more about how to get those 6-7 pictures out of 1 pose here:http://katieohardyphotographyblog.com/2013/02/16/on-monday-how-i-got-these-7-pictures-without-ever-moving-the-baby/
I also make sure to add headbands/hats and wraps to these poses and FLIP your pictures.
From the feet under belly position it’s very easy change hand positions like this
From the pray pose it’s easy to change hands to this:
I do these 3 poses on 3 different blankets. Here is my set up with my blankets layered. (we will touch on this in another blog)
I also use puppy pee pads (large) under my blankets with a blanket that I’m using in-between.
DOn’t mind my lil angels in the background
Again, I’m not the best writer but I hope I can teach you through pictures. I am a very visual learner haha.
Coming up this week: Prop shots!
