How to style a Neutral Newborn Session
For my newborn sessions, I always ask parents for a photo of baby’s nursery, and thoughts on favorite colors or colors they decorate with. Some parents decided on a mostly neutral color palette for their baby’s set-ups. I am LOVING Neutral Newborn Sessions these days. The creamy colors looks beautiful against newborn skin tones. I usually do newborn sessions 5-14 days after birth. The babies are so snuggly and sleepy and easy to pose at that age. However, I always have a few tricks up my sleeve for those babies that come in a little grumpy. For more newborn looks and photo ideas, please check out the SugaShoc Instagram page.
These little cuties had some truly adorable expressions.
Props make a photo pop
I love to pose the newborns in all sorts of things from buckets to bowls to baskets. It accentuates how tiny they are for this short time. Adding tons of layers, and textures of the same shade truly adds depth and beauty to the photo.
Although I adore a great sleeper, I also love to get a lot of awake shots too. Usually, at this age, when baby is awake, it’s because they are hungry or uncomfortable. It is rare to get a cute awake shot so I thrive to capture the happier awake moments. I love to get macro shots when baby is awake. It is a great way to remember those tiny details we so often forget when baby is older. Just look at these gorgeous eyes. The eyes truly pop in the neutral newborn sessions. For other posing ideas, check out my Pinterest page. Babies are only so little for a short while and I love capturing this special time for my clients.
What would a neutral newborn session be without the accessories? Headbands and cute hats are always a favorite but it is extra sweet when the parents can provide a little something special from home. Whether it be a snuggly animal, family heirloom or a sweet gift from a loved one, it truly makes the picture extra sweet.

While the baby is obviously the star of the Newborn session, I also feel it is essential to get some shots of the new family unit as a whole. Pictures of everyone together, and individual parent baby photos as well as siblings are all included in a Full Newborn Session.
