I loved the color palette for this Abu Dhabi newborn photography session. A lot of parents will make the obvious choice of pink and white, so when a family choose something different, I get the opportunity to be even more creative. The richness of the tones for baby Brianna’s session made it one of my favorite Abu Dhabi newborn photography shoots of the year. Usually in a full newborn session, I will use four props and on the beanbag we will use two blankets to achieve the various poses. Brianna’s lovely parents expressed they preferred the poses on the bean bag more than prop images, therefore I made sure we had more time to do extra poses and images with the blankets. She was so good for us and even let us do some of the trickier poses.
One of the props we used is the very popular garden bed from JD Vintage props. This is a particular favorite for the baby girls. Another frequent choice from parents is the stunning wooden bowl from The Original Photoblocks. I always love to pair it with the adorable teddy bears. I find accessorizing for the Abu Dhabi newborn photography sessions one of the best parts of the job. I will often find a hat or wrap that can be my inspiration for the whole of the shoot.
One of my favorite poses to do is probably the simplest. Just using one of the amazing flokati rugs from Luneberry and having the baby wrapped on their back, can create a beautiful image. For me, it is due to the position of the baby in relation to the light. It is also a great pose for particularly fussy babies as they feel secure and snug in the wrap. In this pose I also have the opportunity to do macro images of the babies feet and face.
