What's better than a newborn session? A newborn lifestyle session. These are the only newborn sessions I offer at this time. Did you know it takes a very particular type of photographer to do those skilled, posed newborn sessions? You know, the cute ones with froggie leg poses and babies that seemingly look as if they're hanging in thin air? These images are composite shots. These photographers know just how to pose your little one safely, with hands on them at all times (oftentimes, they use an assistant) and they come back in post and mesh multiple images to give you those stunning pieces of art!
Unfortunately, posed, studio newborn photography is not my genre of specialty. And, because I cannot say with 100% confidence that I could safely do these poses with your little one, I refuse to even try. Their safety is of utmost importance to me and I refuse to compromise it for more page views, likes or bookings.
(Side note: If you work with a photographer who is not utilizing assistance or composite shots to achieve these images of your baby, walk away. There are plenty of photographers who are trained and have invested time in hours of classes and workshops to learn to do this type of posing. Don't risk your sweet babies joints and chance them falling or being hurt for a particular shot.)
Instead, I offer lifestyle photography for newborns and families. Within days of having your baby, I come right to your house. You can stay in your robe if you'd like! I spend around an hour and a half, following you around, catching feedings and diaper changes, cuddles and baths. The works. The great part about these photo sessions? Everyone is included, it's totally candid and comfortable.
I've taken photos of the Heberts before (they are sweet, loyal clients) and when Kari asked me to come by and do little Miss Hazel's lifestyle newborn photos, I was thrilled! We spent a sweet afternoon together, catching up and capturing meaningful moments of the family interacting together.
Hazel is absolutely beautiful and such a good baby. She was a real trooper for the time we spent together and, big sister Harper, well, let's just say that she won't have any problems being a wonderful older sibling. Pride was painted across her face and she was overjoyed to share her baby sister with me.
Thank you Heberts for yet another wonderful session and thank you for choosing me over and over again.
