If you are a prospective client and you are wondering about newborn session flow and prop selection, the one thing my past newborn clients will tell you is that I ask about their favorite colors or preferred colors for the session, and if they want to incorporate a specific prop, look, pose or theme. Gender-specific color scheme are always classic and popular, blues and grays for boys, and pinks, lavenders and purples for girls. I do have a lot of blanket color choices at the studio and I always remind parents who are not sure about their likes that they can also go with a gender neutral color scheme (creams, greens, yellows, browns) and use brighter bolder colors (such as teal, tiffany blue, coral, mint, navy blue, red, or orange). In the session below, parents chose mint, cream and brown as main colors for their baby girl’s session while keeping the overall feel of the session clean, simple and not too girlie (no flowers, frilly accessories, headbands, etc). Oftentimes, the simplest set up and look works best to highlight baby’s features! My favorites are the orange/coral/blue knit hat on the teal and the little bear in the crate! If you like my newborn photography work and if you are expecting in 2016 or 2017 (I am now booking clients with due dates into February 2017!) please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me (202) 251-6368 to schedule your newborn session.
