Singapore newborn photography
Newborn photography can be those traditional, intentional images with the baby in a basket or perched just so on a beanbag and a blanket. Or, it could mean photographing a baby inside his or her nursery, interacting with parents, siblings and even the family pet.
Newborn photography can be as different as the families captured by that camera — there’s no one answer to just how a newborn should be photographed. But, posed newborn photography and lifestyle newborn photography have several important differences — and one photographer may do better inside one style, while another may be completely at home in the other.
What’s the Difference Between Posed and Lifestyle Newborn Photography?
Before determining what style of newborn photography is right for you, it’s important to differentiate between the two. Posed newborn photography is more traditional.
These images are usually of a baby (most often asleep) in poses or props. This style of newborn photography typically uses backdrops and props and may also include studio lighting.
Lifestyle newborn photography, on the other hand, is a style of photography where the baby is in their own home or another location important to the family, not a studio. In lifestyle photography, the baby is photographed in natural settings and poses that the baby moves into unaided.
I have chosen to offer lifestyle newborn sessions to my clients, I love photographing in my clients homes, it creates even more meaningful photos, I feel. As a lifestyle photographer I tend to place a bigger emphasis on interaction between the baby and the members of the family. The only props are what’s at hand, and there are no backdrops. Lighting is often ambient light. I alsol typically instruct the parents to interact with the baby in a certain spot and in a certain way.
