How I provide Stylized newborn sessions for my clients:
Developing a stylized newborn session for each of my clients comes with a bit of work. Here’s how it starts:
When a client emails about a newborn session, I ask them a couple of questions about their preferences with colors and the scenes they would like in their newborn package.
I get a variety of responses, but normally I hear things like “neutral tones” “nude colors” or “ivory and sage”. This is a start, but I also need to know if they are a bucket, box, blanket, infinity, or bed type of session. I’ll ask for a few reference photos if I am not already aware of their style, and this can help me put together a session that they will love.
Part of my process of creating a stylized newborn session, involves creativity and a willingness to try something different. It may be a different prop, a different color combination, or just taking away colors for a focused direction.
This client in-particular (like a lot of my clients say..) said “I trust you! Style the set ups the way you think would look beautiful” and my brain nearly explodes with excitement. I know it’s a really small thing, but it’s the most enjoyment for me to stylize the newborn session to what I feel in the mood for, and what I know would look amazing in a gallery on my client’s wall.
