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
