Newborns are small bundles of joy! They are tiny, snuggly, and oh so cute!
But newborns can also be stressful for parents (especially first time parents). They require a lot of work with feedings, changings, and tend to have a crazy sleep schedule for awhile.
This is why I take a relaxed approach to shooting lifestyle newborn photography.
When newborns are laid on a bed or in their crib, they tend to do their own thing. They may stretch out with their toes pointed straight up or they might curl up on themselves, falling fast asleep.
Whichever way they decide to pose themselves, I shoot it.
Whether they are sleeping they whole session or wide awake, I capture the moment.
No two newborns are alike. They each have their own personality making each unique.I believe my job is to capture the uniqueness of each newborn I photograph. They are all unique and special in their own way.
I will swaddle them. I’ll let them have their pacifers. I soothe them if they start getting upset, but I capture it all.
All their interactions with Mom and Dad.
The sweet kisses and snuggly moments.
The awestruck older brother and sister.
The tiny smiles.
The frowny faces.
I capture the moments Mom and Dad can look back on and say, “You were so little and special!”
I capture them in that special, short newborn time period that will be over before you know it.
Because that is what newborn photography is all about for me.
