Sometimes it’s good to get out of the box and this is exactly what happened to me during baby Raven’s newborn mini session. Pinks, creams, white and soft pastels are usually my goto colors during newborn baby girls sessions in my studio. Mom’s will request yellows or browns on occasion, but never grey or black! I’ve known Raven’s mom Rhonda for a few years now and I knew she would love something a little edgier than your classic pastel pink used during her baby girl newborn session so we went with grey, black with a little splash of girly color. Newborn babies are usually photographed with older siblings on white or cream backdrop. For Raven’s pictures with her big sister Lily, we used a black backdrop and the final images are so beautiful and timeless. I know black for baby girls is not everyone’s cup of tea, but I absolutely loved the final images! My goal for every newborn session is to create images that my clients will love and proudly display on the walls of their home. I sure hope this is not the last time I get to use black and grey during my newborn session.
