I am always ecstatic when it comes to newborn shoots. The excitement and love emanating from the parents is so beautiful to capture! These are the pictures that they get to look back at as they watch their child grow, and eventually, the child will look at the photos, too! What an honor and joy it is to be able to capture the beginning of life, the beginning of an amazing journey.
I’ve seen a lot of newborn shoots that are very posed and staged, with bending and manipulating the baby into uncomfortable and unnatural positions. My aim as a photographer is to capture the baby in the quiet and peaceful moments of rest or in the cute and playful moments when their eyes are open! Getting the yawns, the silly facial expressions, the stretching, the smiles, and even the cries – natural is natural! It’s also a ton of fun capturing the candid moments of interaction between the parents and the child – a playful poke here, a smooch there…. What’s not to love??
