I came for a newborn shoot with Harper the day after she was born! Isn’t her mother stunning for just having a baby yesterday?!? Be sure not to miss her birth story. Some of these images almost look like studio work, but they are not. They are all shot in the comfort of their home with minimal posing as to not overstimulate such a tiny baby. Newborn shoots are generally about 2 hours to allow enough time for feeds, nappy changes, and patience to just let the baby be herself. The photo where she’s looking right into my lens in her crib took some time of just sitting there quietly waiting for her to connect with the camera. Then you can see how her cheeky cute personality comes out, even on day one of life! Harper is darling. A first child for her parents, and already with a father who is smitten.
Thank you to Harper’s parents for hiring me to capture the pregnancy, birth, and newborn parts of their family story. They were lovely!
