Before and Afters | Hamilton Children’s Photographer


A while back I posted a before and after image of a popular newborn pose – a baby in a crocheted sling. Since then I’ve gotten a lot of questions and requests to show some more! So i put together a few before and afters.  Some are meant to show how safety plays such an important role in working with newborns, and I’ve also posted a few to show some of my post-processing styles.

Here is the newborn in the crocheted sling. This little guy finally fell asleep after a long while of trying! So when he finally did, his parents and I rushed to get this shot.  As you can see I am a little unprepared for this because my backdrop isn’t properly set up at all. But all in all there was enough there to make this image.  Please notice how supported this baby is. His bum is still resting on the bean bag, and his dads hands are supporting him at the neck.  All very safe!!!


Here are some more examples of how popular newborn poses are done.  Baby should always be supported! (SOOC stands for “Straight Out Of Camera”)


I get a  lot of questions about my post processing technique. I have to admit, I like trying different things all of the time…and I can be a bit all over the place!  I love colour..here is an example of some colour popping.


For this next image, I knew I wanted to achieve a vintage look to match the location and the outfit. I’m using a texture here and have played around in levels to get that vintage feel. I also got rid of those bikers way in the back!
