8These  adorable poses for newborn sessions are staples for in studio newborn photography. We strive to incorporate these for every session. Of course, we can't guarantee them because babies do what they want... hahaha... but we strive to get as many poses as possible for our clients.

Awake photos during a newborn session are always the best! We get baby focused or cross eyed... those are my favorites... so that you can remember your babys eye color! They change so quickly we want to capture that!

Baby in a bucket is an easy way to capture different angles. We love to keep it simple with a little pop of color with a headband. For boys, we would add a prop such a sports item or favorite animal stuffy. We can also add greenery and flowers to this as well for some variety.

Bed time is one of my favorites. We use organic fluff to make your baby feel and look like they are sleeping in the clouds. We have different colored sleepy caps and bears to choose from.

Again...  I LOVE AWAKE SHOTS!!! Happy awake baby makes a happy photographer hahaha. This pose is our "EGG" pose. We wrap baby around the belly, back and butt so that we can see their little fingers and toes. We can do this on a similar color fabric or in our flokati rugs to make it even more dreamy.

Baby in a bucket is always fun! During your design consultation, we talk about what themes or colors you like. A lot of our clients love our greenery and flower sets. This can also be done simple and then add in the greenery. Normally baby is asleep but, Miss Jojo wanted to stay away for half her session (hehe)

potato sack pose for newborn photography

Potato Sack pose is commonly done at the beginning of a session when baby needs to get to sleep. If baby is fussy, doesn't need to be changed or feed, we will wrap baby up to make them feel comfortable. This 99% if the time will put them back to sleep.
