Using Posing Fabrics for Better Newborn Photos

Newborn Posing Fabrics There is no better place to photograph newborns than in the studio! Your photo studio allows your clients a guaranteed quiet, warm environment with attractive lighting and no time limits to work against. As we know, newborns are pretty unpredictable and so it’s always best practice to prepare several different backdrop and prop setups, set aside a few hours to make sure you have ample time for feeding and cry breaks, and recruit someone (a trusted assistant or the parent) for help with posing to ensure you are able to capture a solid foundation of successful images. While there’s a plethora of newborn backdrops, props and posing aids available for baby photographers,  a couple trendy pieces are lace and vintage linen posing fabrics. These fabrics are our new go-to materials for newborn photo shoots! vintage linen posing fabric These versatile fabrics are ideally used as backdrops or basket stuffers.

Alternatively, you can use also wrap them around a doughnut posing pillow to create an adorable prop for baby to lay on.

The 3′ x 3′ does not include a rod pocket so that it can be used as a basket filler or to wrap around posing pillows, like our doughnut poser. The 5′ x 6′ size includes a rod pocket, making it perfect to use as a backdrop. With 17 different colors and 2 sizes, our vintage linen is versatile and interchangeable for boys and girls alike! For extra versatility, we also encourage you to pair linens with our extra soft Stretch Lace Posing Fabric, for a beautiful layered effect.
