Its been a long, long time since I have written a blog based on the newborn side of things.
I have been mulling over a different style of session for a good while now, in repsonse to a few requests from some clients for a session with no props, hats, baskets etc, a kind of ‘unplugged’ session if you will. Well the clue is in the title, here I am introducing “Simply Natural Newborn Sessions’ to Linda Clarke Photography.
I am so excited about this option. Free from the traditional poses it gives me such freedom to shoot :) When I look at the main types of Newborn images that I am attracted too myself they are clean, simple and uncluttered. The baby itself is the ‘prop’.
This session will concentrate on those things that change all too quickly, the little ears, the wrinkly feet, the peeling skin, the curly fingers, the back rolls, the soft hair. It will capture these little features for you forever.
While the baby will still be ‘posed’ as it were, but it will be in such a way as to capture their natural gait. There is nothing as peaceful as a sleeping newborn with their hands stretched above their heads, snoring away :)
The colours, textures and fabrics that will be used during this session will all be natural in tone, whites, beiges etc. There will be accents of pink and blue introduced to each session where appropriate. There will also be much greater use of black and white alongside the colour images.
No two Simple Natural Newborn Sessions will be the same as I will not be working to a plan. We will go with the mood of the baby on the day. Parent shots may also be included in this session and any requirements for sibling shots qre to be discussed at the time of booking.
This is a fine art option and for a limited time only this session style will be available for you to choose at the same price as my normal sessions. I am so so looking forward to welcoming lots of Simply Natural Newbies to the studio :)
