There can be a lot of pressure to take precious photographs of a new baby, and the cost of hiring a photographer may be overwhelming for a new family. Canon has devised a detailed tutorial just for this purpose! Plan Your Baby Moments is an in-depth tutorial website meant to help you prepare and execute a professional caliber photoshoot at home.
First, watch a series of videos that walk through how to select the right spot in your home, how to set the scene and pose your baby, and what equipment you’ll need. And perhaps best of all, it’s taught by a local talented newborn photographer Stephanie Robin.
Stephanie is thorough in her tutorial as she delves into which direction the light should be coming from and how window coverings can be vital to getting that perfect light. Even her explanation of use of colour in propping is very helpful.
Definitely give these 5 videos a watch in preparation for your next photoshoot!
Another of our favourite parts of the site are the Step-by-Step Tips. Select your baby’s age, then on a photo you want to learn to take and get a step-by-step guide to achieving that shot! With photo tutorials for babies ages 0-12 months this is sure to be a resource you keep coming back to.
Be sure to also check out their resource section for equipment you’ll need to do your shoot, and find inspiration in their prop shop and wall art instructional page.
Baby photoshoots can be really difficult, but Plan Your Baby Moments has just made it fun and easy! Happy shooting!
