5 Must-haves Items for Newborn Photography Shoot

One of the most beautiful and fantastic events in any parent’s life is welcoming a sweet new baby into the family, and getting to capture and immortalize that moment for them can be one of the most fulfilling sensations in the world.

If you’ve been thinking about starting a newborn photography business, here are the essential photography gears you’ll need.

Let’s get started!

1. A Professional DSLR

Let’s begin with the most obvious requirement: a quality DSLR camera.

Any camera that you are familiar with will suffice, but ideally, one that is in the midrange to high-end range, with a larger sensor capable of capturing clean, high-quality photographs without the use of a flash.

For further information, see our comparison of some mid-level Canon and Nikon cameras.

2. Prime and Macro Lenses

A regular lens would suffice, but if you want to have a few more alternatives, a prime lens is perfect for newborn photography because it typically has bigger apertures (which helps eliminate the usage of light once again) while staying relatively compact in size.

The prime lens produces images that are crisper, higher-quality, and have less obvious aberrations.

A macro lens, in addition to the prime lens, is a must-have in every newborn photographer’s arsenal. It’s necessary for getting up close and personal with the baby’s fingers, toes, eyelashes, lips, and all the other little features that parents want to capture during their newborn’s session.

3. Reflector

Because there is so much controversy about whether using flashes and full studio lights on infants is safe, most photographers prefer to err on the side of caution and utilise natural light.

If you can’t get an assistant to hold it up for you, you’ll need a pop-up reflector and an optional light stand and reflector holder.

4. Backdrops and Stands for Backdrops

A backdrop (and, of course, a backdrop stand) is required for a newborn photoshoot.

Start by creating a couple of distinct backdrops with a mixture of solids and patterns. Soft blankets, which you can clip to the stand, are another option.

5. Bed, Couch, Bean Bags, etc.

Beds, beanbags, couches, and other similar items are great to have if you’re planning to get into newborn photography

Obviously, you’ll need a place to put your little subjects while photographing them. This can be anything soft, as long as the infant is protected and comfortable. You can use a little bed, a couch, an armchair, a beanbag, or an ottoman, or whatever fits your needs best.

Final Thoughts!

Finally, if you have a studio, you should consider investing in a comfortable armchair so that the mother can comfortably feed the baby in between shoots.

You’ll be better prepared to manage the clients and start pouring in expecting to plan a newborn photoshoot with a professional photographer.

Now that you know what products are must-haves whether you’re establishing a photography business in a studio.
