Nothing beats the sheer joy and love that a mother and father have for their new baby. Being able to capture as much joy and love in a photo is my greatest passion. I had the pleasure of capturing the sweetest week old baby girl for this amazing couple.
Danny and Brooke welcomes baby Rose into the world in September of 2019. Being their first child, the outpour of love and support they received was indescribable. This sweet girl was the luckiest child as her parents were embarking on their greatest adventure. Learning to be a parent isn't easy.
Lack of sleep, balancing your sanity and learning how to be a mom or dad is one crazy ride. But as all parents know, it's all worth it.
Rose was just a joy to capture. She was calm and just happy to be in the world. We had such a quick and easy shoot.
Here is one BIG thing that makes photographing newborns easy. The prep time before the shoot even begins. When the parents are able to get that baby in the best possible state even before the photographer shows up, that makes for a great first start. Baby is fed. Baby is well rested. Baby is in a familiar environment. Baby is changed. the combination of these will work wonders when taking newborn photos. And boy, did these parents have it figured out!!
Yes, there will be accidents during the shoot. Baby will pee or poop (usually during the naked photos) but those are bound to happen. Yes, you may need to feed that baby or we need to take a quick 10 minute pacifier break just to get baby in a good place, but these again are normal.
Take the time to set up the scene and do your best to prepare your family for the photoshoot. The better prepared, the better the photos and the less frustrated everyone will be in the end.
Congratulations Danny and Brooke on your sweet baby girl. She is an absolute heart stopper and such a sweet little girl.
