Classic Newborn Session. Pure and Simple.
I can never get fed up with these Classic Newborn session images! I did these many many years ago at my studio in Wembley, before the newborn genre changed its style. Fortunately for this particular style, it is still very much in and believe it will continue for many more years to come. Set up on a black background and one single light source, you cannot get more simpler than this. Single, nude baby with no colour or prop distractions. Best of all these sets look fantastic in colour and black and white. In fact, I had a hard time trying to decide which version to show off, but decided in the end, colour it is for this blog post.
Mister J here was just such a lovely baby to photograph. He was a little bit grumpy but oh so sweet and you wouldn’t be able to tell, he was being bottle fed behind a bit of black fabric. His Mum requested just a few simple shots on the black background done in the family home. All I needed to bring with me was my studio lighting, posing beanbag, black background and a small basket of wraps for modesty, and was able to set up a little mini studio in the lounge room in around 15 minutes.
