Stephanie Cotta, the sought after newborn photographer behind the popular Ultimate Guide To Newborn Photography, Posing & Retouching course over on RGG, has just released a segment from said course that offers aspiring newborn photographers the opportunity to learn one of Cotta’s favorite poses. The “Side Stretch Hands Together” is typically the very first pose Cotta begins with, so it’s a perfect starting point for those looking to learn some new infant poses, too.
Aside from teaching the pose, Cotta also delivers some pretty good tips throughout the clip. For example, she briefly talks about different props, saying she prefers to use the same blanket to lay the newborn on during the shoot because it results in a matching and cohesive collection of photographs for the parents to hang on the wall.
You can hear Cotta’s take on the blanket tip, plus more in the video clip, below:
