FREE Newborn Photography Wrapping Tutorial
The Evolution Wrap
A step-by-step walk through of the StandInBaby™ signature newborn photography wrapping technique
“The Evolution Wrap“.
Create 12 amazing looks from 1 base wrap.
Achieve more images with less chance of unsettling the baby.
Stage One - The Evolution Base Wrap
~ You will need a stretchy wrap approximately 18″ x 60″ ~
Place the baby in the wrap, ensuring that you have enough length on the shorter side to bring the wrap over the baby.
Bring the baby's hands up to it's chest, then pull the shorter section of the wrap over the baby's body and tuck firmly underneath
Tuck the baby's legs up to it's chest (in a way that is comfortable to the baby) then bring the long section of the wrap over the baby's shoulder, then around under the baby's bottom (supporting the legs) and back up toward the second shoulder.

Stage Two - The Evolution Looks
Take the "tail end" of the wrap and place it loosely over the baby's head and then back around the body
Bring the top layer down to expose the baby's hands. Then use the "tail end" to wrap around the base of the baby
Pull the first / top layer down to expose the baby's hands and feet. Hide the "tail end" underneath the baby.
Bring the top layer down to expose the baby's hands (as in "Look 4"), then use the "tail end" to wrap loosely over the baby's head.
Bring the top layer down to expose the baby's hands (as in "Look 4"), then use the "tail end" to create a trail.
Using "Look 6" turn the baby on it's side and extended both feet and 1 arm further outside of the wrap.
Following on from "Look 8 or 9" take the "tail end" and gather it over the shoulder of the baby and through the legs, finish by tucking the wrap back underneath the baby's body.
Look 10 Examples
These styles will easily adapt to many different props. Add beanies and tiebacks to complete the look. It's time to get creative.
Following on from "Look 11" Gather the wrap underneath the baby's arms and pull through the legs in the same way you did in "Look 10"

I used this wrapping technique on my last session this week…. What a game changer and I wish I would have known this sooner ! Thank you so much Sandra for sharing this with us ! Your constant support to help improve the skills of newborn photographers all over the world is very much appreciated…HUGE thank you from Calgary
And for everyone doubting about purchasing a StandinBaby…. DO IT !!! It is my best purchase in a long..long time. I test all my setups and outfits, my wrapping techniques…literary my complete session if I have not uses it before and I go into each session so confident…. my sessions go smooth and so much faster than before.
Again…. HUGE thank you !
What is the average measurement of this wrap used?
It’s 18 x 60″. 🙂
This wrapping is not as easy as it looks – I think my wrap may be a tictch to short but I will persevere.
Thank goodness for this tutorial as I have time to practice.
Great video for learning.
Many thanks for your help and support
