Simply Posed:  A Photographer's Guide to Simple and Safe Newborn and Family Posing

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!

A complete studio workflow

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. 

Simply Posed, A guide to baby led newborn and family posing

Baby led posing for newborns

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!

Naturally inspired posing for families

My system also uses naturally inspired posing for families and older children, resulting in images that look candid and relaxed.

I was always at a loss when trying to explain to clients why I don’t pose and always thought I wasn’t a good newborn photographer because I didn’t pose! I’m pretty good at standing my ground, but this class gave me the confidence to stick to my roots!
