Read more: What is Monochromatic Newborn Photography Prop Setup?

Newborn photography props colour schemes can be of two types: monochromatic and polychromatic.

The monochromatic colour palette consists of one colour. So, the monochromatic newborn photography setup consists of one colour props. That means that you have to choose props of one colour that have different textures and/or similar shades of that colour for an overall tonal look. You will soon find that the way of combining single shade newborn photo props is a simpler, cleaner approach to photographing new born babies. Therefore, preparing for the newborn session will never be easier because you won’t have to worry if newborn photography props coordinate.

Balance is the key when combining newborn photography props. This rule should always be followed, not just single-colour setups. You don’t want the colour to overwhelm the new born baby. On the contrary, you want to highlight the newborn in the picture. To achieve this, we recommend using simple newborn photography props so they don’t distract from the baby. Play with textured blankets or bowls, add subtle accessories like a headband or a hat/bonnet.

Enjoy the freedom of creating your own newborn photography style using white. White colour creates a refreshing and clean look in your newborn pictures. This colour also associates with innocence, purity, simplicity, openness and new beginnings.

Keep in mind that you don’t necessarily need to have newborn photo props in the exact same shade to make this look work. If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, try adding a contrasting pop of colour in your teeny tiny accessory.

Pay attention to the teddy bear scarf in our picture collage. The scarf is not white but does not fall out of context. On the contrary, it makes the newborn picture interesting – the viewer’s eye has where to stop.

Perfectly coordinated shades of pink creates harmonious newborn photography prop setup

You can create a cohesive, monochromatic newborn photo props setup by mixing and matching noticeably different shades of one colour. This is a chance to match your photo props that are not the same ideal shade (which, let’s be real, is very difficult to do when shopping online). If you’re searching for an easy and quick way to accomplish this, remember the golden rule:

TIP: The less different shades you will combine the more harmonious newborn picture will look.

In such kind of setup – when different shades are combined – follow these simple tips:

  • Find another newborn photography prop of the same (lighter) shade for that lighter prop that is a different shade than the whole photo set.
  • If the first lighter-shade newborn photo prop occupies a fairly large area in the picture, then the second lighter-shade prop must be smaller – just a subtle repetition.

In the picture, the newborn wrap is a lighter-shade prop than the other photography props: background, poser, heart toy. It takes up quite a lot of space in the picture, so the prop that replicates the wrap is a very delicate headband for a newborn girl. This tie back headband completes the setup in a very subtle harmonic way. Couldn’t be easier!

The newborn photographer should have knowledge not only in photography but also the basics of colour matching. Newborn photography props are used in every photo shoot to make things go smoothly, so choosing the right photo props and matching their colours is very important.

We understand that it is very difficult to determine the exact colour shade of a prop when shopping online, as the final image is influenced by many things: the light during the photo session as well as the retouching techniques used by the photographer. We always strive to provide the most accurate shade of the photo prop, but we also understand photographers who do not want to risk or simply waste endless time searching and matching newborn photography props. That’s why we make newborn photo prop sets – so you see all the items in one picture, and even the suggestions are offered about the newborn’s poses.
