The Complete Guide to Newborn Photography – Kelly Brown

I hope you enjoy this book, and that it can serve as a guide for you to hone your own craft of newborn photography. It has been a labour of love, and all my greatest wishes stem from a desire to strengthen and unite the photography community.

 

I established Little Pieces Photography in 2004 when I had my first child. From taking happy snaps of my family, I studied photography to sharpen my skills and am now a portrait photographer who specialises in maternity, newborn, and baby photography.

These days I also spend a great deal of my time teaching fellow professional and aspiring photographers all over the world.

I wanted to write this book to further share what I have learned about photographing newborns and how to work with all their diverse quirks and personalities. When photographing a baby my main focus is that the parents have a wonderful experience from beginning to end, and that the baby is safe and comfortable at all times. It is these principals that I want to impart to the rest of the newborn photography community to ensure our genre continues its growth and success well into the future.
