While our studio lends itself to light and airy, there is no reason that we cannot also offer Dark and moody newborn photography. Using studio lighting and darker backgrounds and fabrics, we created this beautiful shadowy newborn session.
The parents of this darling girl sent some inspiration for a darker toned session, and this is what we put together. I love the simple grey backdrop, with the heart shape under baby, and the sweet little froggy pose and the perfect face forward pout. The grey blanket background really emphasizes baby.
As you can see with this image, we don’t require all dark tones to create a moody look. While this set has some lighter tones in it, it also has dramatic lighting, so the image still goes well with the set. And the variety of textures really add to the image.
The hanging swing shot is one of our clients favourite images. baby is never suspended, and hands on on him or her at all times, but the results are stunning. These images take quite a bit of work, both in studio, creating the set, and also after in post processing. We design the sets with our faux flowers, and can offer pinks, purples, roses, creams or blues.
