I know there are lots of you with due dates coming up and with all that’s going on, hospitals are only allowing 1 family member in the hospital during your stay. Which is a great idea with all the germs going around and you can’t be too careful!
But that also means your Birth Photographer isn’t able to come in and capture those first few hours after your baby is born…
I saw this circulating on Facebook so I thought I’d share….
For all of you Mamas that are unable to have a photographer at your Birth or Fresh 48, here are some helpful hints for you to take great photos on your phone or with your own camera!🥰
-Take them during the day when there is plenty of window light.☀️
-TURN OFF the hospital lights! Use the window light only, if you can!
-Position your baby facing the light coming through the window.
-Don’t shoot towards the window. Shoot with the window to your side or to your back, but be careful not to block the light coming through!
– Shoot down, from above or the side of the baby.
– Get close! Thats where the details are! Fresh skin and tiny fingers and toes are important!
-Download the Lightroom App on your phone and edit your photos there! If you are one of my clients & you would like me to edit any photos, I will do so free of charge for you! ❤️
Saw this on another photographers page today and thought it was a great idea!
I wanted to also add:
Ask your nurse to swaddle the baby for you. NURSES ARE THE BEST SWADDLERS!
