Raleigh Newborn Photography- Neutral and Natural Colors for a Newborn Portrait Session
This is one of my favorite newborn portrait sessions that I've done recently. This baby boy was so easy to work with. He slept the entire time and barely made a peep. I do all my newborn baby photography sessions in-home, so I met this family at their home in Holly Springs, NC. It was clear to see just how loved this little guy is.
I'm sure I've mentioned before how much I love neutral and light colors. They always complement babies so well and look so beautiful in print. For this baby's portraits, I used gray, green, blue, and cream.
This baby boy had such adorable little features. As a photographer, it is always fun to capture all the tiny details of a brand new baby, from their little fingers and toes, to their little puckered lips and long eyelashes.
Here is another soft color that is nice to use with newborn babies... mint green. This is a nice gender neutral hue.
White and cream are my absolute favorite colors for newborn portraits. I always include a cream backdrop during my portrait sessions. The white reflects onto the baby and brightens up the skin. Such a light color really brings out the details in the photo. Below, a warm gray looks so pretty and soft.
There are so many ways to photograph a brand new baby's face. Each angle focuses on something different.
Do you like black and white photography? I tend to prefer color, but occasionally a black and white photo captures a moment even better. This baby boy posed himself like this, curling up his feet and resting his hand on his chest. If you look closely, you can see details like flaky skin, so common in newborn babies.
