Newborns and infants are fantastic subjects for digital photography. Not only are these first moments emotional, but photographing these moments preserves the memories for a lifetime. You can create beautiful newborn photo collages through candid and posed digital photography perfect for framed or unframed photos and canvas prints. Here are three great ideas to give direction to your newborn digital photography.
All the little parts photo collage. Newborns grow so fast it’s easy to forget how small they once were! Capture the tiny details of your newborn with digital photography in a nine photo collage. Use a large photo of baby as the center of the collage, and surround this with close ups of her feet, hands, face, ears, mouth, bellybutton any little part that shows how special he or she is.
Every season photo collage. Document your newborn’s first year in a simple four photo (or more!) photo collage that captures the feel of the seasons. Take photos of baby in front of the Christmas tree, surrounded by Easter eggs, outside in the flower garden, on the Fourth of July, and of course, the first Halloween! If your baby is too young for outdoor digital photography, consider posing with him in a window that shows the season outside.
Real time photo collage. Using a DSLR with burst mode, fire off shots of your baby laughing, reaching for a rattle, or a similar happy activity, then print the photos and make a collage with just that set. Similar to a film reel, these types of collages are super fun and look great on canvas prints arranged together in a wall collage.
Creating memories of your baby’s first year and beyond is a special opportunity. Take as many photos as you can as your baby grows, but don’t forget to put the camera down once in awhile and enjoy time with your baby, too. These moments are special!
