I remember when my son was born I was pretty obsessed with him (and still am!). I wanted to hold him all the time, I wanted to make him laugh, and I even wanted to change all of his diapers. My favorite photos from that time in our lives are of myself or my wife holding our son, trying to make him laugh or smile, and even the ones where we’re changing his diapers! Coincidence? I think not.
Those are the kind of moments I capture during my newborn sessions. I’m drawn to the way a mother holds her child, or the way a father interacts with his new baby, so it’s only natural that those are the pictures that make the biggest impact and mean the most to my clients. I keep the photos simple, focusing on your family and your newest addition. No fancy tricks or poses, just real lift with you and your newborn baby.
I’ve had the chance to get to know this family over the past few months and was excited when they inquired about newborn photos. We spent about an hour in my home one afternoon when their baby boy was about ten days old and came away with some great photos. Enjoy!
