If it’s difficult to decide you can always take a picture of rompers on different posing fabrics.

Take a couple of images from different angles. Then you can get onto the romper and the bonnet as seen in the example below.

The following image was taken without moving a baby. Take the bonnet off and photograph from a different side. You will get a completely different newborn picture!

3. Here is another one admirable idea on how to take two different images with minimal newborn disturbance – newborn baby lies in a hammock and is embraced by his parents.

This pose of a newborn baby lying in a hammock is easy to create. You won’t need to do a digital composition with Photoshop to merge a few images together and try to imitate that hammock is hanging in the air. Nevertheless, the picture is no less interesting and cute.

So, here is the exact steps you need to perform in order to achieve this newborn photography setup:

  1. Cover your newborn posing bean bag with a fabric backdrop.
  2. Place a wrap on it.
  3. Pose a newborn baby dressed in knitted romper on his back. The baby should lie in about the middle of the wrap.
  4. Lift up the wrap end next to the baby’s bottom and form a hammock.
  5. Correct the position of the hands and feet. Also, pay attention to the head position.

TIP: You will need to gently tighten the wrap and fasten its ends to achieve this newborn pose.

Your assistant can help you with this setup. If you do not have an assistant, you can secure the ends of the wrap against the bean bag frame with clips. Another solution is to ask parents to hold the wrap. There is no need to be afraid to ask help from clients – such experience is often the first and very pleasant for them. Especially, the parents will participate in the next setup.

Now it’s time to prepare your newborn photography setup for the next shoot.

Gently pull the wrap out from under the baby. Show parents how to add hands to a newborn. Also, adjust the baby’s legs to make the newborn pose more compact.

Pictures of newborn and parents are greatly appreciated. First, adding hands to a newborn makes it very easy to compare how small the baby is. This is a very important memory because children grow up very fast. And even sooner parents forget how small their baby was just after birth. Secondly, this newborn pose illustrates the symbolic meaning – the unconditional love and care of parents.

TIP: Use newborn photography props with contrasting textures to create this kind of setup. It will make the photo even more impressive.
