“This session is of an 8-day-old newborn little girl.
I kept the posing natural and organic, and used all natural materials like weathered antique wood, ostrich feathers, up-cycled fabrics, and antique lace.
I don’t over-process my newborns either because I like their skin to be pink (just like they are in real life).”
Julie’s Photography Tip:
Find your own style, and your photos will improve. You’ll enjoy what you’re doing more, and passion shows in your images.
Instead of buying every newborn prop on the market or trying to compete with all the other photographers in your newsfeed, make a collection of things that speak to you and start there.
Inspiration can come from anywhere too. Like Pottery Barn’s spring bedding? Find an old photo of your grandfather in a pair of levi’s? Build a collection of images that inspire you to find what you love stylistically.
Julie used a Nikon D7000 (affiliate link) with a Nikkkor 50 1.8 lens (affiliate link) to capture these images.
