photographing babies in grey

happy monday friends!

last post we talked about photographing babies in cream, let’s look at photographing babies in grey!

honestly, grey is a color i really struggle with! i tend to shoot fairly warm in kelvin, and i edit pretty warm too! so that leaves my grey’s looking kinda blah… more greige if you will (which i understand is a pretty popular color right now)

all that to say, when i DO use grey in my images i edit a little more on the cool side to keep my grey’s GREY!

i am learning to love the greys, especially on babies with dark hair like this little fella! i feel the darker colors make baby pop a little more too, making them the center of the image.

less is always more for me. 

i LOVE seeing other photographers with intricate images, using multiple props and such… but i find my style tends to be a little more simple. <3

i like having layers and textures in my newborn images.

using the fluff from the fabulous oh so fleeting always turns out amazing. she offers a wide variety of fluff styles and colors. if you’re looking to add some depth to your images, check out her shoppy shop, you won’t be disappointed. 😉

also… i’m loving the wrapped baby look.

i find i don’t do too much with nakey babies any longer. i’ve had momma’s not want a tush out, or other skin exposed…

so i’ve stocked up on wraps and bonnets from the absolutely amazing mama knits. i even have a bonnet and wrap set named after me in her shop! i’ve purchased MANY wraps and bonnets from a myriad of vendors, and hands down ashlee’s wraps and bonnets are always spot on for sizing, color, and stretch.  she also custom makes sets! i LOVE having her custom sets made for me, because it ensures that ALL my colors coordinate! this makes my sessions go SO much more smoothly, and editing is such a breeze when all colors are from the same pallet. <3

hope this is helpful! and yes…. i type like i talk. 😉

here is baby isaac in grey <3

babies and cream colors

let’s talk about color set ups <3

i love babies on cream. to me, it just makes you remember how pure and innocent they are. they look so angelic on light, airy, fluffy creams. don’t you agree?

and i love that there are so many different shades of cream, giving each image extra depth!

i always start out each session with baby in cream. parents always get to choose their own colors and props…. and i let them because there isn’t anything in my entire studio i don’t like 😉

cream is a staple in each session for me. don’t get me wrong, i love the deep and intense jewel tones, and the darker earthy tones.

but cream makes the babies look like little tiny, peaceful, cherubs.

they are such a beautiful and complex gift from the Lord, and i love working with each individual one.

do you have colors you like to see on babies?

newborn photography mentoring

hello readers!

this is something that i’ve been thinking about for a while, but never really jumped on board with…  until now.

i love newborns. i love how peaceful and innocent they are. i love their little personalities, which are very obvious from the moment they enter my studio.

most of all… i really love to teach. i love when i have photographers ask me questions about lighting, wrapping, props, the perfect vendors…. and i want to share!

i am currently offering newborn mentoring sessions with an emphasis on wrapping. i am often asked about my wraps… where i get them and how to achieve the look created. these mentoring sessions are going to be at an introductory pricing for a short amount of time.

you will spend the entire day in my studio. we will talk about lighting, wrapping, posing, safety, styling…. anything you would like to learn. this will be hands on, meaning you will be able to wrap these babies yourself if you so desire.

these sessions are available to photographers who are wanting to take their business to the next level, and dive into newborn photography.

there is a 90 mile, non compete radius on these sessions.

i have something to offer local photographers as well <3

if you are interested in learning more about newborn photography, feel free to contact me for details at hello@briennekristen.com

**i offer a discount for 2:1 mentoring, if you want to bring a friend to learn as well.
