Newborn Photography Studio TourHight Photo, LLC
I have two sons that I love & adore, and then a few things that I consider to be kind of like a fur baby. Not quite a kid, but really special and important. My studio is one of those.
A labor of love and a place where I spend a LOT of time, it was important to me when designing my newborn studio space that it be those two things that make up the holy grail of design: functional and pretty.
Being a newborn photographer, functional means lots of storage options, lots of power options, very particular wall color specifications, and of course, very specific lighting needs. And being a creative means it all has to look pretty!
At the time of writing this, I’m still in the process of hanging the artwork and putting a few finishing touches on the “amenities” (think changing tables and other helpful things for parents of newborns), but I wanted to go ahead and share now, so here’s a peek at my pride and joy, my happy place, my third kid…
My newborn studio has light gray walls with zero color cast to offer a lovely neutral backdrop, and no color reflection on my newborn subjects or their families. White wood floors and fluffy rugs give timeless, neutral floor covering options. Wall-mounted seamless paper in multiple colors gives a quick and easy way to change up the color and style. And of course lots of shelving and hooks was a must for storing for props and accessories!
In a newborn photography studio, props usually refers to something you can either prop a baby on or in. Classic. Vintage. Fun & Funky. Themed. I have it all. I also love working with textures, so you’ll see lots of different textures and materials represented in my props collection. Of course there are lots of different types of buckets, baskets and bowls, as well as some more specific props for themed images. A big metal dump truck, a gardening bucket, a vintage wooden tool carrier, a crocheted hammock, a vintage Coca-Cola box… So. Many. Options. so I can design the perfect custom session for each client.
I can create sets in pretty much any color imaginable. If you can imagine it, I can design it. And if design is not your thing, creating sets is one of my favorite things to do. No, seriously, I do it in my free time, just because I can! Have I mentioned I love my job?
Headbands & Tie Backs & Crowns, Oh My!
From tiny, delicate, barely there accents, to big, bold, statement florals, to diamond crowns and headpieces, I have all the headbands we need to dress up your little girl. All my accessories are updated continuously to keep my images fresh and your baby’s portraits unique. Some of my favorite shops for newborn headbands are Simple Design Props and Polka Dot Poppy for soft cotton-back tiebacks with gorgeous floral designs, and Luneberry for exquisite, delicate pieces.
Dapper & Darling Knit Outfits
Is there anything that says newborn or baby as much a teeny tiny knit outfit? I don’t think so, either!
Florals are just one more beautiful way to add texture and color, as well as to capture the season of your baby’s birth. I”m always happy to add to my floral collection, so if you have a special type of flower or organic prop in mind, just let me know! If I can incude it, I will!
Last but not least, get dizzy seeing the whole thing in three hundred sixty degrees of straight newborn photography studio awesomeness!
