Outdoor Newborn Photos

Photographing outdoor newborn photos can be so easy!

It has been my experience that outdoor newborn photos are easier than most photographers may think, especially in the summer. Let’s take a step back and think about this sweet little tiny person just came out of his mother’s tummy where 98.6 degrees was comfy! So naturally being outside on a southern summer’s day with a full tummy makes it super easy to snooze like this little guy.

He was sawing logs at this point in our newborn session.

There are a few things to take into consideration. One is I do have a bug fan thing out of camera view that has been there already for about 5 min. Mosquitos and other creepy crawly hate those fans. So nothing rubbed on babies new skin…just a fan their 5 min before he was.

An extra pair of hands is always nice. If I don’t have extra hands you better believe I am using a 35mm. Baby is always within hands reach. My fingers were edited out of the top of this shot.

Concrete always makes for an interesting background. Here sweet baby is snuggled into a low wooden bowl and wrapped because it got a bit breezy, although I don’t think he minded the breeze. I just needed a different “look.”

How precious is he, and a sweet little name to boot. I am looking forward to spending so much more time with this family and Abel, I ❤️ You!
