HOW TO USE FLORALS IN YOUR NEWBORN SESSION
I always recommend hiring a florist to create this for us during our newborn session, because they are the best person for the job! However, plan ahead for this! This opportunity comes once in a lifetime for your child! Taking beautiful floral newborn photographs last a lifetime.
Lay Something In The Middle For Size Reference
Now this one always fails me, but one of these days, I will remember to bring one of Bree’s many baby dolls to the studio with me! I typically use whatever I can find that is approximately the size of a baby. I just want something that will allow plenty of room for the baby to lay in the florals with a little bit of white space to spare. I also try to push the middle down a bit so that when I lay the baby down her head and body will lay comfortably.
I love my floral rings to be full of multiple layered blooms! There is absolutely a time for thinner floral styles, but generally speaking, I love to have lots of blooms.
Swaddling your babe
When your florals are ready, swaddle that baby and lay her in the middle of your ring!
I love to photograph my babies from different angles on the floral ring, add mom and dad, siblings, etc. The opportunities here are endless, but truly will create the magic in your diverse gallery!
Since the flowers in the ring are loose, you can totally move them quickly to a second setup. For this session, with a little help, we were able to flowers to create your perfect newborn photographs!
