Get creative with light
Soft, diffused natural light is my go-to for capturing the delicate features of a newborn. It's about finding that perfect balance where the light is gentle enough to highlight their features without creating harsh shadows. I love playing with the subtleties of light, using it to draw attention to the tiny details like a baby's fingers or the curve of their cheek.
The Language of hands
I've always been fascinated by the expressive power of hands in newborn photography. There's something incredibly moving about capturing the contrast between a tiny baby's hands and those of their parents. These images speak volumes about protection, love, and connection: telling a story without the need for words.
I believe that perspective is everything in newborn photography. Moving away from traditional angles, I experiment with various viewpoints to create something unexpected.
