Newborn posing is such an important aspect of newborn photography, and one of the most popular props you can use is a basket. Our Natural Basket is very popular amongst newborn photographers, and we would like to show you how you can use this prop to your advantage in newborn sessions.
There are many safety requirements of newborn photography, and when using our Natural Basket it is firstly a good idea to use a weight in the basket. This ensures that a newborn remains safe throughout their session and won't kick or fall out of the basket. A weight can easily be hidden underneath blankets and layers, and gives you and your clients reassurance that their newborn is safe. These beautiful baskets are handwoven by our own artisans, giving you a prop that is both stunning and practical for your newborn photography sessions. The baskets are sturdy enough to support a newborn, but soft enough that they won't be uncomfortable for a baby and don't have any sharp edges.
Many newborn photographers choose to wrap up a baby before placing in the basket. This way, they'll stay secured and safe, so that you have a much greater chance of capturing those adorable sleepy poses you see so much! Simply fill the basket firstly with blankets, layers, fur or wool then place your newborn on top for a gorgeous shot!
Did you know that our Natural Baskets are perfect for all of those sitter shots too? It's as simple as placing a soft layer in the bottom of the basket and sitting baby inside. Not only will it mean you end up with a super adorable shot, but baby will be happy and safe inside. That's two props for the price of one!
Our Natural Basket is a wonderfully versatile prop as the options for styling are virtually endless! After filling with blankets and layers, either wrap baby in one of our amazing stretch wraps or dress in a cute outfit. You can also add some amazing touches such as dried flowers, botanicals, jute layers or other small posing props such as teddy bears to add that extra special touch to your newborn setups.
We are so excited that shortly our Natural Basket will be available in two shades - Natural and White! Keep an eye out in the store as we have more stock arriving shortly.
