Stylized Newborn Photos

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.

about abigail

Hi! I’m Abigail. You can call me Abbey, all my friends do:)

I'm a Chicago based professional newborn photographer. I also love photographing maternity, children and family sessions!

I was born and raised in the Chicagoland area, in a small town in the suburbs called Western Springs. I couldn’t suggest it more! I dream about moving to the West Coast, California specifically.

My blog is a mix of galleries, journals, stories from my travels, and the behind the scenes of my life as a professional photographer.
