My name is Iris Chalmers. I am the Owner and Photographer at Iris Chalmers Photography. I have always been a very private person in regards to social media but decided to share a bit more of myself and my work to promote my business. One of my New Years resolutions for 2017 was starting to blog.
So here we go :) By the way, I love my Job! Especially when I have the privilege to work with newborn clients!
Today I am sharing a little behind the scene of newborn posing ... specifically the "baby in bucket" pose.
Have you ever wondered what kind of magic Photographers use to get Newborns to hold their heads up so perfectly in those sleepy baby poses?
It is called Photoshop.
Baby safety always comes first when posing a newborn in any props!! Baby is only 5-14 days old in most newborn sessions, so naturally their tiny heads always need to be supported properly at all times. The bucket is stuffed with filling to support your precious new love and any props used need to be weight down properly to prevent tipping over.
For the "baby in bucket" pose 2 images are being combined in photoshop to edit out arm and hand of the person supporting baby's head to make it appear baby is holding its head on its own. Please do not attempt to pose your newborn baby like this without proper training.
I captured this precious little girl below at a newborn work shop I took in July 2015 ... taught by the talented Newborn Photographers Maxine & Shellaine in Edmonton. You can check them out at www.maxineandshellaine.com/
This newborn workshop made me really fall in love with newborn photography and I have captured many little once in my home studio here in Sylvan Lake Alberta or at clients homes since then. You can see more of my work by visiting my web site at www.irisc.ca
Thank you for reading my first mini blog and hopefully i will hear from you if you require a maternity or newborn Photographer in Central Alberta.
