How to Photograph a Newborn Baby (My workflow & Wrapping technique & Newborn Photoshoot BTS) – at

In this video I’m showing you Behind the Scenes moments during a real newborn photoshoot. I’m also sharing my workflow with you when I’m photographing newborn babies and I’m sharing my favorite wrapping technique with you. How do you become a newborn photographer? Watch this video!

I’m a full-time photographer in the Netherlands and I’m planning on showing you a but more of my life as a photographer. Are you interested in photography? Are you looking for a free-online Photography course? Do you want to see the inside of a Photo Studio? Then please, watch my videos and subscribe to my channel!

I’m planning on sharing videos in which I show you my typical work-week as a photographer. I will give you tips & tricks concerning photography, photo shoots, backdrops, studio props, camera settings (iso, aperture, shutter speed, white balance), photoshoot outfits, photoshoot make-up etc.

Bedankt voor het kijken! Ik ben een full-time fotograaf in Nederland en ik wil je graag iets meer laten zien over mijn werk als fotograaf. Wil je meer weten over (digitale) fotografie? Wil je weten hoe een fotostudio er van binnen uitziet? Ben je op zoek naar een gratis online cursus fotografie? Kijk dan mijn videos en abonneer je op mijn kanaal. Ik zal videos maken over camera instellingen (iso, sluitertijd, diafragma, wit-balans), studio achtergronden, fotoshoot outfits, fotoshoot make-up enz.

If you are interested in photographing newborn babies yourself I would highly recommend you to first learn about photography in general. Master you camera, photograph in the Manual mode, learn about aperture, iso, shutter speed, white balance, light and composition. Take photos of your friends (adults or very patient older kids) and make sure you don’t have to think about your camera anymore when photographing babies. Learn about editing as well. Please, don’t experiment photographing Newborn babies without training. Attend a workshop by an experienced and professional photographer with an expertise in Newborn Photography. Learn about the anatomy of babies and invest in good quality cameras, lenses and props. Babies are extremely vulnerable and small and their safety and comfort should be your highest priority. Start with simple poses and make sure you know and understand that many ‘pinterest poses’ are composites. Please, don’t try this at home. If you want beautiful photos of your own Newborn Baby, I highly recommend you to hire a professional and experienced photographer who is trained and specialised in Newborn Photography.

  7. Yifat Mabary says:

    Hi, i love watching your vlog! I was wondering how and where do you get massive and constant work from? What to do to get work all the time and to be able to open space that you have you will be busy all the time?

  8. Traci Kern says:

    I have a question..first I love your videos! I was wondering where you get the cardboard that holds your tiebacks?
    Thank you <3

  9. Don't get me wrong, but I don't see need to mention how other photographers work. Just because you don't like or can't do some poses, doesn't mean they are crazy. You seem nice and gentle, very educated, but as a person who is a perfectionist and slightly OCD 🤣 I must say your posing is mostly not on the point. I love simple as much as I love props and "crazy" set ups, but I noticed that mostly people who don't know how to pull up some harder poses or set ups will talk about those who can in negative way. No hard feelings. It's just my opinion. Keep up with your workflow 🙂 Every photographer has his clients. And must say, very beautiful studio!

  10. Do I have to use a bean bag or can I use a futon?

  11. Fenna…LOVE your videos and thank you for sharing your tips and techniques!!!! I watched a video a couple of weeks ago of a photographer wrapping a rather chubby newborn in the potato sack pose. The poor baby was wrapped so tightly that it sounded like he was having trouble breathing and I felt so sorry for the baby. I just don't see the need for that kind of posing.

  12. Cindi Cox says:

    May I ask what settings you used on the Nikon – I heard F2.8 but ISO and shutter speed? Thank you! Love your work!

  13. You have a very good studio setup and the needy things to the baby and parents.
    Inspiration to budding new born photographers like me.
    Love from India

  14. I am enjoying your videos. I am without a studio for the first time in 4 years as we live in a small house waiting to build a barn house behind this old house. My new house will have a 16 x 24 studio and your videos are very helpful to see how you have arranged your studio and work stations. I do newborns, family , pregnancy and weddings in Granbury Texas. I love your thoughts on posing too, I don't do the other poses as well, for the same reasons.
