Ninja Wrapping Skills | Artistic and Cozy Ways to Feature a New Baby

Houston Newborn Photographer, Sarah Borchgrevink, features three darling ways to wrap a baby during their portraiture session. 

Stunning Wrapping Techniques

Howdy, friends! Welcome! Today's blog post is an overview of beautiful newborn wrapping that's both artistic and cozy. It's all about displaying baby in a lovely way while keeping little one happy and safe. 

Part of being a custom newborn photographer is having unique ninja wrapping skills, ha! Often when the parents are in studio, they will marvel at how baby immediately goes to sleep once I begin working with little one; they will even ask for a quick tutorial on wrapping techniques, too! 

The wrapping skills I've learned are from one on one mentoring; however, over time I've learned several great tips simply from practice. I have a huge variety of newborn wraps; literally hundreds, lol! For example, sometimes I use chunky knit, other times wispy cheesecloth that's light and delicate. Either way, I have every color, size and texture you could possibly want.

The newborn wrapping is also a great tool to have in your studio because it's a great option for babies who are super petite and maybe do not enjoy being handled or also for parents who do not like naked bean bag posed images. Some parents prefer the modest look of wrapping or how cozy and sweet it is; being able to offer your clients several options is a huge plus for your business.

The three styles of wrapping techniques I'll be sharing today are my favorites and are part of my workflow: tootsie, potato sack and then straight jacket. 

Tootsie Wrap

Awesome pictures! We went recently for a newborn session for our first child. Will be cherishing those pictures for a long time. :)
