Second Part of the Newborn Photography Workflow

Now you have two adorable pictures of a naked newborn. Time to cover her with a wrap. Covered or wrapped up newborns feel more comfortable: they are warmer and feel more secure.

In this setup, our Martin Wrap adds gorgeous lace texture. This piece of knit fabric with just enough stretch and amazing softness is a true newborn wrap icon.

Keep photographing the baby from a close-up. Take a couple of shots so you could have to choose from when editing.

It’s a good idea to take some macro images of the eyelashes, lips, nose, hair, tiny toes and fingers. It’s so easy to forget these little details and the pictures of them are so much loved by the baby’s parents. You do remember that your goal is to run a successful newborn photography business!

Take different shots of the setup: from the front, from the above. Try photographing from different angles. It helps to bulk the gallery out.

Finally, add a headband tieback for a newborn girl and a hat or a bonnet for a newborn boy to complete the baby setup. Elegant luxurious hand beaded with tiny pearls Coby Tieback is crafted to go with your loved wraps—for one very sweet session.
