For all of you mamas that are unable to have a photographer at your birth or fresh 48, here are some helpful hints for you to take great photos on your phone or with your own camera!
-Take them during the day when there is plenty of window light.
-TURN OFF the hospital lights! Use the window light only, if you can!
-Position your baby facing the light coming through the window.
-Don’t shoot towards the window. Shoot with the window to your side or to your back, but be careful not to block the light coming through!
- Don’t photograph aiming up the babies nose. Shoot down, from above or the side of the baby.
- Get close! Thats where the details are! Fresh skin and tiny fingers and toes are important!
-Download the Lightroom App on your phone and edit your photos there!
Saw this on another photographers page this morning and thought it was a great idea!
I wanted to also add:
Ask your nurse to swaddle the baby for you. NURSES ARE THE BEST SWADDLERS!
TAG your expecting mama friends!
We ALL, professionals and individuals, should be doing our part to help one another. Giving advice, lending a helping hand, and doing what is best for one another. This post was not created to gain business, or promote my business in anyway. Just to share a wonderful idea that another photographer had. By adding tips, and taking out some things I wouldn’t do personally, was a way for me to reach out and help the expecting mothers in my community!
