I love when we plan a session, and it all comes together. Winning! We can plan all day long, but your newest addition needs to be on board. And lucky for us, this little queen was a dream baby, and went along with every vision her mom and I had planned. Mom’s must have was the head in the hands pose (some people call it froggy) with a crown. They were calling her ‘little queen’ when she was in the womb, so of course we needed honor that sweet nickname.
When doing a newborn photoshoot, whether in your home, or in the studio. We start with your favorite few poses and visions first. As in the beginning of your session, your little model is likely to be the sleepiest and most cooperative. However, sooooome babies prefer to be awake in the beginning, and that’s not a problem, because usually swaddling them will help them fall asleep.
I love capturing your baby’s tiny details. You may not hang these macro shots of their toes, hands, and profile on your wall, but they are a great addition to an heirloom newborn album!
When it comes to newborn photography, or photography in general, I overshoot. Meaning I take way too many pictures. I’d much rather cull through thousands of pictures finding the best, rather than going through a few hundred and realizing I could’ve come from a better angle, ooooor discovering that your little model was actually not even in focus.
This baby girl was still so sleepy so after we did some family shots, we did a few more posed shots. And they are a favorite!!!😍 Lucky for you googly-eyed parents out there, I will help you narrow down your favorites and help you to create art for your walls. You don’t have to do this yourselves.
With this family, we wanted to do a part II session. It was VERY overcast during our session. And while that is fine for the posed newborn part because I use a lighting system, it is hard to get natural light family since I use window light. So this crew came back a week later when the sun was not hidden behind gray clouds, so we could capture some more family images.
I am happy to do this for clients because I want you to have art that you LOVE!!! They are only this small for a short amount of time!
