I know that a lot of photographers (and clients) cringe when the hear the word "posing". Nobody wants stiff and unnatural photos! I know I don't! But the truth is, when done right posing can look completely natural! And having a posing system in place helps your entire session run smoother, resulting in better photos and happier clients!
I've been a newborn and family photographer for almost 20 years! In that time, I've developed a system for simply posed newborn and family photography that is safe, efficient and (most importantly) beautiful!
This is the system I use everyday in my studio and that you can use too, whether you work in a studio, in your client's homes or on location.
My system uses a baby led approach for newborns which means I only use positions that newborns are meant to be in. No unnatural poses or props here! Just babies, being babies, in a safe and comfortable way!
My system also uses naturally inspired posing for families and older children, resulting in images that look candid and relaxed.
For the first time ever I'm sharing the system I use to create my award winning newborn and family portraits!
Simply Posed is a complete guide to creating simple, safe and beautiful newborn and family posing. In it, I walk you, step by step, through my system.
