It seems to me that more and more newborn photo shoots that I come across are starting to resemble Anne Geddes portraits where it’s hard to see the baby through all the extravagant props used. I tend to favor a cleaner look where the focus is on the cuteness of the precious little one. That way you avoid any trends of the moment (think 80s style with double exposure shots) and stick with something that will always be classic.
Some of my favorite newborn shots are from photographer Christian Cruz who captured little Soul and her family beautifully. I love the softness of the light and the dreamy look. See more from the shoot below.
