2019 has been the “Year of Babies!” I’m pretty sure by the end of the year I will have photographed more babies in 2019 than in my whole career combined!
When I photograph newborns I bring the session to the family’s home where everyone is comfortable in their own surroundings and the newborn doesn’t have to be taken out. When I arrive I look around to find the best window light and setting that will make for nice pictures. I bring along a few swaddles and props, but it’s always special when there’s a blanket that a grandma made to wrap the baby or something unique to the parents to incorporate into the session. I’ve learned over the years that you need a lot of patience with newborns! The sessions can take anywhere from 1.5-2.5 hours (one time I was with a baby for almost 4 hours!! Eeek!) Their tummies need to be full and it’s best if they sleep!
It’s my pleasure to introduce to you all the cute little babies I’ve met this year! (I’ll try to keep it to four pictures of each…that’s hard to do!)
