Newborn Photography Trend- Floral

Newborn Baby Photography Trend - Floral

I love to stay on the look out for great newborn baby photo ideas for you and I’ve noticed a beautiful trend in newborn baby photography…the use of flowers and other natural elements particularly in  floral crowns and rings.

I thought I’d share some here and as always I have plenty of inspiration as well as the sources on my pinterest boards HERE

Birth Announcement Cuties 2

This months birth announcement idea has a bit of an American edge with the baseball and all but  you could use this idea with other objects.

And don’t know about you but I’m loving the new iPhone with its portrait setting..it would allow you to take something like this at home.  It automatically blurs the background ..its super easy and it makes you look like a bit of a pro.

I’m obsessed with using it on my personal Insta account..I know you will love it.

We have plenty of inspiration for you pinned on our Pinterest board Babys First Christmas.

There are a few themes happening including the use of the following..some are simple and some more elaborate but it doesn’t take much to give it a go.

  1. Christmas lights
  2. Candy canes
  3. Santa hats
  4. Under the tree
  5. In a stocking
  6. Cute little hats..see reindeer one above
  7. Christmas tree baubles

And don’t be put off by the fact that many of these are from professional photographers..here are a few tips to getting the perfect pic.

-try to find a nice well lit location preferably natural light

-try to just get a clear in focus shot

– why not lay out an unwrinkled blanket or some Xmas themed paper or table cloth for a back drop and lay the baby onto it.

– don’t forget you can edit in Instagram itself to lighten your picture and  sharpen it or add any filters.

–  just have some fun.
