Howdy, welcome to the world of newborn photography. I won’t touch on editing but I’d like to discuss posing. In your images I can’t really see the baby’s face or any details. Perhaps you were try to convey their tinimess but there are better ways to achieve that. I would master indoor posed or lifestyle newborn work before attempting outdoor shots.  There are many online workshops on newborn photography. Rachel Vanoven just came out with a  good one. Clickinmoms has an excellent one also. Robin Long is a fabulous resource and you cannot go wrong with Kelly Brown. Hop on over to Creative Live to check out their offerings in newborn and maternity. Sue Bryce is a great resource in how to pose different body types in a flattering manner. If you can find a local newborn photographer kudos to you but most would rather gouge out an eye than mentor anyone within 100 miles.

Practice wrapping, start learning the standard poses such as tushie-up, taco, head on hands etc….

 

This is an imperfect attempt at taco.

This little peanut didn’t want to sleep for me.
