Behind the Scenes | Newborn Photography of Baby Kyla

Posted on 14 March 2011 by Liza Mae V.

I have been excited about shooting newborns since my first ever shoot with Baby Ayrianna.  It is something I am passionate about and whenever the opportunity strikes, I get an immediate high.  I used to think that newborn babies looked the same but after shooting them, you start to see the little features that resemble their parents, siblings, and other family members.  On this day of the shoot, I met Baby Kyla’s mother Karolina B. (whom I went to elementary school with), father, brother, grandparents, and great grandparents.  It was great energy having four generations around and seeing how different features transfer from generation to generation.  I get close up look at the baby, so I can distinguish where they get their small lips, coloured eyes, nose, hair, etc.

This is the behind the scenes look of my photo shoot of newborn baby Kyla, pictures courtesy of Karolina B.  This was taken in Baby Kyla’s grandparent’s home.  My main source of lighting is natural lighting on my left and I usually have a bean bag for the baby to pose comfortably on.  I have learned a lot from this shoot in terms of essential equipment to bring, number of looks on a shooting day, what baby poses work best, and many more (which I will talk about in another post – TBA).  If you need a newborn baby photographer or know anyone who is expecting, referrals are welcome.
