Newest Newborn

A three-week old baby can be a very challenging subject to photograph.  They may well still be developing but they definitely have a mind of their own.  You want them awake, they want to sleep. You want belly time pictures, they want to sprawl out on their backs.  The list goes on.  You need to have patience to work with these miracles of life.  You need to be quick with the camera and gentle with the touch. Most of all you need to have a sense of humor.

This was a special newborn session, a proud big brother and dressed up cousin would be joining in on the photo fun.  Three kids, a handful of aunties and an uncle, and a few snacks as bribes resulted in some very relaxed natural family photos.

This is a great family; they were relaxed in front of the camera, interested in the baby share such a great sense of style that I had many editing options, which is always nice.

I  have a very relaxed approach to newborn portraits; I go to the new mothers house so no one has to pack up but me, I set up my very small studio and sit back and let natural photo happen.  If you see me lurking the hospital waiting rooms, im just eager for more baby pictures, do not be alarmed 😉
