There are all styles of newborn sessions and it’s best to know what your preference is before you book your photographer – make sure their style can match yours. Today, more parents are asking for fewer props in their session and more simple poses.

These images are taken from neutral sessions. Simple neutral sessions are newborn sessions that are mostly without color, use little to no props, and truly focus on the baby. I love neutral sessions, the images are timeless, simple, elegant and keep the focus on your baby.  Using neutral colors is also a guaranteed way to make sure all your images will look great on any wall, in any room of your home!

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 look 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.

Thanks so much for considering me for your baby’s photos. I hope this has helped to answer any questions you might have regarding what colors to choose when you have a newborn session with Kristen Herber Photography.
