Practical, safe, and beautiful – these are your needs for the photos from your newborn’s photo shoot. You are searching for the best poses to bring out the most beautiful side of your baby.
Luckily, newborn poses are mostly streamlined making the process predictable. Once you have selected the pose, work with the photographer to customize the small details.
Here are the most popular poses we do these days.
You want to highlight the facial features of your baby and the froggy pose is the best pose to do that. This pose is so popular it’s almost mandatory in newborn photo shoots in 2022. And because it takes time to click this pose, you will have to eat that frog (pun intended) first thing in the photo shoot.
It’s not as daring as it looks. Your photographer will achieve the final look as a composite of two photos allowing you to support your baby’s face with your hand.
Using the right props, this is a simple pose to click. It keeps the focus on the baby’s face and tiny sets of fingers and toes.
You can customize the look with swaddles, blankets, and headwear.
Huck Finn Pose
Huck Finn pose is another way to keep those adorable toes and fingers in the limelight. It’s a more comfortable position for your baby than a taco pose. So, you can keep it for the end of your session if you want.
The ease of this pose allows you to use it even when your baby is awake – or when he is about to wake up.
If you don’t want to swaddle your child for this pose, your photographer has a way to get it with the right props and hand-holds.
The Side-Lying Pose
Aren’t babies adorable while they are sleeping? Preserve this exhibit of peace with a natural side-lying pose.
This pose will highlight your baby’s body curve as well as their face and fingers and toes. Cover them a little with blankets if you want.
These were the most requested baby poses that are near-mandatory for any complete newborn photo shoot.
You may like one pose more than the other but you wouldn’t want to say not to any of them. After all, you want to remember every detail of their adorable bodies, don’t you?
