Backdrops for Fashion Photography Fashion photography, whether it’s studio photography or location shooting, requires different considerations than traditional portrait photography. Fashion photography, unless purely artistic in nature, usually has a goal or a client objective in mind. The designer wants their outfit, accessory or product to be showcased in the most compelling light possible.

 Newborn Photography

A newborn is only a newborn for around two weeks. The little one then graduates to infant for the next three months, is considered a baby until around age one, and a toddler up to about age three. While these designations are somewhat subjective, it can’t be denied that the “newborn” stage is the briefest and most fleeting. Parents who seek out newborn photography only have a small window of time in which to capture this precious stage in their child’s history. With such a limited time frame, both photographer and parents should strive for the most optimal decisions and results possible. Two of the main options available for documenting newborns are posed and lifestyle photography. Each style has its benefits, and both photographer and parents must determine what scenario will be best for the family’s needs and preferences.
