Three reasons why B&W photography is perfect for your baby photos

You may not have thought about it before. But black and white is the perfect choice for your baby photos.

And here’s why.

  1. As you know black & white photography has been around since the beginning of photography. It has an undeniable timeless quality. Your photograph cannot be instantly recognizable as being taken in a certain era. It will never become dated or embarrassing as fashions change.
  2. Black & white or more correctly called monochrome, is great for disguising the redness that newborn babies have from their birth.
  3. Removing the colours creates a much more flattering appearance for your newborn baby. And allows you to visually see your babies form sculptured by light and shade. This instantly makes any baby photo appear more artistic and gives it a great sense of worth.

2/10/2012 – There will always be a few exceptions, see this beautiful newborn baby who looked perfect in colour due to having no redness on her face.

Below are a few baby photos from a recent photo session with a newborn baby.

I recently went back to Pat with our newborn daughter, and once again Pat has produced pictures that take your breath away. I am chomping at the bit to receive the disc now. Everyone in the family loves the pictures and I love Pat’s professional but above all friendly laid back approach. Would visit time and time again.”[/testimonial]

I had been thinking about maternity pics for a while but had been uncertain as taste is obviously so important in such pics. And Pat managed this, capturing the beauty of pregnancy and making me feel comfortable and at ease throughout. …I cannot recommend Pat highly enough and am very much looking forward to the newborn baby session and pics!”[/testimonial]
