This year is going to be a year of growth for me and my business (but hopefully not my waistline). I’m striving to find the areas that need improvement the most and to take concrete action toward that improvement. While I have considered myself a “professional photographer” for some time, I also have a full-time job in cancer research, a husband, friends, family, and hobbies that fill my life. While I am just as passionate about photography as all of these other facets of my life, I haven’t necessarily given it equal time. That’s no way to learn and grow! So this is the year to change that!
With that in mind, last weekend I attended a photographer’s workshop all about newborns! It’s an area of photography I love more and more, but I wanted to be more familiar with how other photographers set up their session and pose the baby etc. This workshop gave me just what I was looking for, and I’m really excited to use what I’ve learned on future clients!
First up was Gwyneth. She was eleven days old in these pictures, and just as precious and gorgeous as they come!
Our next beauty was Jayden. She was so much fun and had the best facial expressions and movements, not to mention that gorgeous head of hair!! Her mom did Zumba all the way up to being 33 weeks pregnant, so she already knows how to shimmy.
Then came Imberly (sorry if I’m butchering the spelling!), who was oh-so-sweet, and very willing to let us pose her and then play papparazzi. She had definite grace through it all. I’m thinking she just might be a movie star one day.
The first image, I just love in black and white, but the peaches and creams in the color are swoon-worthy, too!
Our last gem of the day was Tristan. I loved meeting Tristan’s mom, for whom this is her first child. You could tell from a mile away how smitten she is with this peanut, and it’s not hard to see why! Tristan was three weeks old for these pictures, and served as a perfect example of the fact that babies of this age may not be so easy to move and pose as the younger guys, but it is still possible to capture their beauty!
I hope you enjoyed these! Even more… I hope you are pregnant (or know someone who is) and are mere milliseconds from contacting me to take your newborn pictures! I’ll leave you in peace so you can do that…
