Maternity & Baby Photography: Which style is right for your family? pt 2

Which photography style is right for your family: Traditional or artistic?

In an age of Pinterest and mobile phones, it is easy to let life’s most precious moments pass us by without properly recording them on camera. Pregnancy, new births and, indeed, any stage of a family’s growth deserves to be celebrated with professionally printed photographs that can be cherished for years to come.

There are four basic styles that can be applied to family photography: traditional/classic, artistic, lifestyle and documentary. The right one for you and your family will depend on a number of things, including your family’s tastes, your personality, your lifestyle and how old your children or other relatives are.

The time of year can also play a big part when it comes to choosing the right photography style for you. We are spoiled for choice when it comes to baby photography in Perth, with so many beautiful settings and backdrops available for truly stunning photos.

In this post, we take a closer look at the benefits of traditional/classic and artistic photography styles and why they might be the right choice for your family portraits.

Traditional/Classic Photography

While there has been a move away from this more traditional ‘posed’ style of photography in recent years, if it is done properly it can make for wonderful portraits that highlight the connection and warmth between you and your family members.

Posed sessions are often the best solution for images of your newborn. Your brand new baby will be carefully positioned in various sets to show off his or her features and highlight the wonder and fragility of a new life. We also specialise in posed portraits of newborns with one or both parents, in a safe and relaxing environment.

Traditional portraits also work well for pregnant mums-to-be. We understand that this can be a daunting time in any woman’s life. Our goal is to preserve a memory of their body and the miracle it has created in a style that not only shows off the bump, but also compliments each woman’s figure.

No matter what the setting or family group, our goal is to create a relaxed, comfortable and fun atmosphere for a thoroughly enjoyable photo session.

Artistic Photography

Sometimes our customers want something completely different, something that will be truly unique to their home. The potential for artistic expression in family portraits is limitless, whether you put your trust in the photographer’s vision or you prefer to collaborate on the project.

Artistic photography can tell a story through a variety of creative methods, such as one-of-a-kind props, colour enhancement or digital mastery. When it comes to maternity and baby photography in Perth, young couples can truly immerse themselves in the creative process, taking their family portraits to the next level.

At Onesies & Co, our mission is to provide stunning baby, maternity and family portraits that will capture the most precious moments in your life and last you for years to come. Contact us today to find out more about our custom photography services.
