I had a wonderful session with this little cutie! He was a eating when I arrived. By the time I set up my studio in the living room of his home, he had finished his meal and was burped and ready to go! I started the session shooting him against the white backdrop using my studio lights. He adored the flashes of light and was mesmerized! He needed a few feeding and burping breaks because he was slightly fussy with tummy issues. But with a little patience he worked through his issues and was an adorable model.
I always allow extra time for my newborn shoots knowing that newborns will often need lots of feeding, burping and diaper change breaks. Patience is the key. Wonderful photos can’t be rushed.
When we had gotten plenty of poses of him all by himself and terrific family shots I swapped to the black backdrop. With newborns, I like to shoot using both the white and the black backgrounds. I adore the crisp clean look that the white background provides. I love the drama that the black backdrop offers.
I love working with babies and new parents. If you are looking for a professional photographer to capture this special time for your family, please call me at 650 631 8284 to schedule a session. I would love to photography your family!
