I had the opportunity to photography my husband’s cousin’s daughter…if one of you can tell me how we’re related, I’d appreciate it. She was only 4 pounds at birth and only 6 pounds in these photos at over a month old! TINY TINY baby. And so darling. But man she has a mind of her own…which is why EVERY photographer under the sun will tell you it’s best to do newborn photos when they are less than a week old.
As you may have noticed I’m moving toward a lifestyle newborn session. What can you expect during this session? To see relationships between family members and the new baby. Mom and Dad holding the child in the home environment. Now in this case they were traveling from out of town so we did this session at my home. Normally we would pick a location or two in your home, make sure it is neat and tidy (or maybe not if you want a more “real feel”) and go from there. I try to use natural light whenever possible; but sometimes we need to grab a light or two. Baby will most likely be awake. These sessions don’t include posy posy newborn shots with funky hats and baskets and barrels. These are beautiful heirlooms of a new family welcoming a new life.
