Newborn Composite Photos | Charlotte Baby Photographer | NicCole Photography

Lets chat newborn safety…….. I am a flow posing baby photographer. What exactly does that mean? That means I am posing a newborn baby as their little bodies say they wanna go. Some babies are limp noodles and will go in almost every little pose others are a bit more touchy and prefer a more cuddly shot with mom. Both in my mind are equally gorgeous! Flow posing is just me reading what poses your baby likes best. That being said composite is a big part of some images for safety reasons. Example image below…..the fake baby was never in the basket. For parents here is a great peek inside how the process works. For budding newborn photographers in my workshop and mentoring classes I thought I would show a quick tutorial on how I get this shot.

WARNING: scary baby 🙂 my real babies are far more adorable…but Stand in Baby is awesome! She never fusses 🙂
