Newborn Pose Guide | Types of Newborn Poses | CT Newborn Photographer

There are tons of newborn photography poses and it can be hard to describe them all. I created this newborn pose guide to help bridge the gap between photographer terms and moms so we can all be on the same page. If you see a pose that is not on this list, reach out and I can certainly add them to the guide.

*disclaimer* If you are a new newborn photographer, or mom, looking for newborn photography poses. Please be aware that many of these poses have been perfected over time and dangerous poses require composites in order to obtain. Baby isn’t always just sitting in that position as it may pose a risk.
