5 Fun themes for your newborn photography session – by Dallas Newborn Photographer Mod L Photography

Dallas newborn photographer Mod L Photography specializes in maternity and newborn photography. She designs custom newborn photography sessions in her Dallas studio for new parents. Her gorgeous archival artwork is something you bring home to share with your children as they grow together.



1. sports themed newborn photography

Do you love sports? Are you super excited about sharing your love of sports with your newborn baby? Let’s start during your newborn photography session in my Dallas studio. When we sit down at your design consultation we will talk about your favorite sport and your favorite team. We will come up with a plan to showcase your love of that sport. I love to focus on your sport and your team colors. Sometimes families come in full fan gear. Sometimes we lean to a more subtle sports theme. As a fan of sports myself I just love designing a sports-themed newborn photography session.

And if you can’t decide on one sport, do them all!

2. Animal-themed newborn photography session

Animals play a big part in our lives. Many people have a favorite animal and love to include them in the theme of their newborn photography session. I love adding to my collection of tiny, perfect, newborn-sized felted lovies. They are made by hand by a talented local artisan and are perfectly shaped for babies to hold in their hands. I have several different options and am always adding more. I would love to hear about what favorite animal you would like to feature in your newborn session.

4. Your own culture or heritage themed newborn session

Is your family heritage very important to you? Why not honor that in your newborn photography session. There are many ways to pay tribute to your heritage, the city where you grew up, or your cultural background. Sometimes we incorporate things from your hometown or textiles and colors from your heritage.

5. Finally you can always use your nursery for inspiration for your newborn photography session

You’ve spent months anticipating the arrival of your precious baby. Part of that journey is likely decorating the nursery. Your theme could be anything and we can always incorporate the colors and ideas from your nursery into your photography session. In fact, when planning any Dallas newborn photography session we like to incorporate colors from your home. This way your artwork will display perfectly and blend with your current decor.
