Newborn Photography Without Props
As a newborn photographer in Los Angeles, I am known for creating timeless, natural newborn portraits with a minimalist aesthetic. I like to say that my work is full of emotion and free from distractions! So, why do I offer natural newborn photography without props?
Babies are perfect on their own
Your baby’s safety and comfort are my top priorities
Like any of us, babies have preferences. They prefer some positions over others and like to move around to get comfy. Props, costumes, and complicated poses can get in the way of listening to baby’s cues when it comes to posing. This is not to say that props can’t be used safely, just that it isn’t my preferred method of working with babies. I want to leave room for baby to have some “say” in how they are posed because the resulting images are, to me, more authentic. You’d be surprised how often a parent will notice that baby’s hand placement or head tilt in their portraits resembles the positions they favor at home.
I want your portraits to be timeless
Newborn photography without props can be hard to find
When my son was born in 2013, I had been a family photographer for several years. But, as a tired mother of a newborn, I wanted to hire a newborn photographer to take his portraits. The problem? I couldn’t find anyone who created the type of newborn portraits – simple, natural & timeless – that I was envisioning!
I took my son’s newborn portraits myself and, in the process, fell in love with natural newborn photography. Over the intervening years, I’ve photographed countless newborns and developed a signature aesthetic that incorporates natural posing & minimal styling to create the timeless images my clients are yearning for.
