Christmas White Box Photoshoot with Gorgeous Moments Photography

A couple of weeks ago we went along to try out a new kind of photoshoot with our favourite local Photographer, Gorgeous Moments Photography.

The White Box Photoshoot is a new concept which is so simple, but has extremely effective results and I’m really happy with our finished collage.

Firstly – you might be asking What is a White Box Photoshoot?

In a white box photoshoot, the photographer uses a white background to shoot pictures which will then be edited together to create a larger scene. I love the way the results come together, like all of the different scenes happening in the rooms of a house. There is so much going on, and you get the chance to show off lots of personality within the four walls of each white box.

Ideas to photograph baby from newborn to six months old

While I’d say it’s definitely worth having your baby’s newborn and older photographs taken by a professional photographer who understands baby posing and lighting, it’s never been so easy to take your own pretty photos. By using your own phone or camera with the use of editing tools / filters for you to play around with can create some lovely shoots. So I thought I’d share some tips and tricks to get some beautiful photographs capturing your baby’s developmental stages, to document each important milestone, from newborn to six months.

When to Take

If you want to take photos to document your baby’s development it might be a good idea to take a photograph, maybe on the same day/date as your baby’s birthday, every month.

Baby at Newborn

In photography babies are classed as newborn if they are under and month old. At this stage newborns are asleep most of the time and curl up tightly so you can get some photos of baby asleep on their side, belly and laying on their front with chin first. It’s also nice to document newborn features for years to come like tiny toes, fingers, eyelashes, curls etc. so take close up shots of these.
