16 Heartmelting Ways to Photograph Your Newborn
Recently I came across the most adorable and yet artful gallery of baby photos I’d ever seen. When I couldn’t stop scrolling through, I knew I had to get in contact with the photographer. I soon discovered these photos were created by a team, Sri and Jana of Chicago. Sri explained to me how he got started in maternity and newborn photography:
“While shooting fashion, I noticed 2 things – 1. typically, fashion photographers did not want to shoot pregnant women and 2. pregnancy photography was typically boring, dull and even sad. […] I wanted to bring style, joy, fun, colors, vibrancy, surrealism to maternity photography.
Isn’t pregnancy one of the most if not the most joyous occasion in one’s life ? Why can’t one show vibrancy of the moment with colorful photos? […]
Once we started doing maternity sessions, the obvious next step was newborn photography. […] Additionally, Jana used to be a pediatric physical therapist and is adept at handling babies safely. Both our maternity and newborn photographs are always non-cheesy and subtle. No crazy over-saturated colors or babies inside pumpkins or any of that. Just timeless pieces of fun-art.”
Truly, I didn’t know maternity photos could be so stunning until I saw Sri and Jana’s work. But clearly the pair have a way with newborns as well. Drawing inspiration from their work, here are 16 ways to adorably photograph your new babe.
