Guide to Newborn Poses

When looking for a newborn photographer, potential clients are always curious what to expect from there session. From what is included in the package, to what poses will be done. I wanted to take a few moments and highlight the newborn poses offered by me, and what you can expect from your session. Granted, each baby and session will be different, but this is a good visual of what types of poses to expect.

The safety of the baby is always a top priority. I will not pose babies in a way that is unsafe, and some images are composites (where multiple pictures are edited together to give the impression the baby is posed by themselves – when in reality I am holding and supporting them in those poses the entire time)

I break my newborn posing into four categories: wrapped, unwrapped, family, and prop.

WRAPPED POSES
