Set your little one’s portrait apart with stunning colors
When you book a professional posed newborn session with Sarah, you are going to receive a styling questionnaire. This questionnaire has you share colors you like and perhaps even a few you dislike. However, over the years I’ve worked in studio, I have found a common trend: sometimes parents are scared of color because they think it will be too brash or harsh again a their little bundle of joy’s skin.
Have no fear: through the use of studio lighting, top of the line camera gear, unique styling, and my vast array of luxury baby props color is my jam. This is how I create those ever so dreamy skin tones through the use of contrast.
You see, for my personal taste I like the baby to shine and to do so without distractions. Props are natural, timeless, and vintage-inspired so your gallery is forever in style. Think of it as a little black dress: always perfect, never dated.
While neutrals are a wonderful addition to posed sessions, I do urge you think about the following: if your home decor or nursery is neutral the pops of color can be breathtaking! For instance, if Baby is on a white backdrop, in a white picture frame, on a white wall they may blend in too much; however, with color, your baby will have fantastic skin tones, due to the contract, and the color will not make their skin look too dark.
In fact, I have noticed, when requesting colors, parents sometimes think about the colors they would use to decorate their homes versus colors that accent the decor in their home.
A few of my favorite colors from which to draw inspiration:
You’ll always find a few neutral setups in each baby photography session I photograph, however, please allow me to introduce awe-inspiring setups reflecting a gorgeous yet timeless use of color sure to create unique works to adorn your walls.
As you can see, the color against Baby’s skin gives them such a creamy, soft gorgeous hue in their perfect chubby cheeks! These colors are my absolute favorite to work with and I’m also so pleased when parents give me creative freedom to showcase all the neat ideas with a newly arrived bundle of joy.
