And now, let’s go to newborn posing. In the images below the newborn girl is photographed in the womb pose – the newborn photography pose when a baby is curled up in a position like she was in a mother’s womb.

The first image of the posing flow is of the newborn girl placed on a beanbag covered with a posing fabric backdrop and the Makenna Mini Posing Pillow. A decorative mini posing pillow is perfect to add finishing touch to your newborn photograph. The particular Makenna Mini Posing Pillow features delicately ruffled lace edges and looking very feminine in the image discloses newborn purity.

The second image is a close-up image from the same newborn pose and setup.

Now you have two adorable captures 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.

The great thing about newborn flow posing is you can take lots of different images from just one pose. You do not need to move the newborn so there are fewer chances the baby will awake. Also, you can have a great selection of images.

All of these are incredibly outstanding photographs of the newborn girl that were loved by her parents. She looks like an angel!

What an honour is to create an amazing piece of art that your clients will buy to display on the walls at their house and will cherish forever.
