My thoughts about photographing newborns | Nikki Olivier Photography

If you’re expecting a new baby and embark on a Google search or social media crawl of local photographers, you’ll see, there’s quite a few different styles of newborn photography available to you. Let me preface this by saying, each style is beautiful and has it’s merits, and let’s face it, no one can resist getting a bit googly eyed at a brand new baby posed and perfected in the Anne Geddes style. When I started my photography journey I spent much of my time posing babies, and buying expensive props - it seemed the right thing to do! However as the years have gone by, my mood and style for photographing babies has changed. When I look back - even with my own children, I long to see the memories that made them - the environment we came from, the love we felt and shared. Showing your children who they are and where they come from is important to their development and understanding of this world.
