Newborn Macro Images

newvorn macro images“Get close. Then get closer.”

This is a well known “rule” in the photography world. The newborn macro image is how this rule translates in the world of newborn photography.

After all, the whole reason why newborn photography is even a thing, is to capture those newborn features that fade as the days tick on. Our teachers from Milky Way’s 2019 Newborn Retreat know that so well, so we’ve rounded up some of their favourite newborn macro shots as inspiration.  Be sure to click over to the Retreat page to see all of the topics that will be covered.

So next time you have a newborn session, be sure to get in close, and record these precious memories for your clients.
