Simple & Safe Posing | Seattle Area Newborn Photographer

Poses do not need to be overly complicated to produce a beautiful final product. One of my favorite shots to capture during a newborn shoot is this image below. It is a great alternative for Dad’s who do not want their picture taken! 😉
On my beanbag I drape a black sheet which allows for easy post processing. Once I have positioned baby on her side, I then have the dad kneel by my beanbag and bring his arms around baby. I then position myself onto my step ladder to captured the image looking down onto baby.
Then in post processing I select everything but baby and the arms, paint everything black, and edit as I usually would. Viola! A simple pose that has a dramatic look and keeps baby completely safe!
Hope you enjoyed this simple and safe posing example!
Happy Shooting!
