17 Indoor Baby Photo Ideas: Results from Confidence Photography Workshop

Me Ra Koh

I’m so EXCITED to share the loveliest, sweetest indoor baby photo ideas with you!! At our Confidence Photography Workshop for Women we challenge our ladies to use the least amount of light possible, using the natural light and deep shadows to create beautiful portraits. The ladies use the available space around them as well as some natural light from windows and the results are fantastic! It proves that even a hotel can become a great photo session location when you know how to find the right camera settings!

This is the portrait that I was setting up for the workshop ladies.  You can see how I’m using a sliver of window light to create a dramatic portrait of mom and baby. Another sweetest moment is also the baby shower. It is one of the most must-captured-moments. As there will be baby shower party comes, gifts are needed right? If you are looking for the perfect present for a baby shower, grab some inspiration and browse our gorgeous collection of gifts for baby and mum,. You could get a customized shirt for baby from The Clothing People, they are great to work with.

I LOVE how Shannon got down to floor level to take this adorable shot, also thanks to These mosaic tiles that make the floor look even better. The colors are soft and look how the carpet matches baby’s eyes. You really wouldn’t know anyone else was even in the room (let alone a whole bunch of ladies with cameras)! However, there’s a little bit hassle in washing those carpets. It can’t be done by just one person. Fortunately, Powerhouse Carpet Cleaning is there ready for service 24/7, the best carpet cleaning service in Walnut Creek.

In this behind-the-scenes shot, you can see how I’m taking full advantage of my mirrorless Sony a7rii camera and the dynamic range.  The dynamic range is what helps you capture and retain details in not only the highlights but also the shadows.  This is something I depend heavily on because of how much I love working with shadows.  You can see an example of a baby portrait using dynamic range here.

Wait til you see this babies and their families! We were SO lucky to have such BEAUTIFUL models!!
