There is nothing like love at first sight. It is a feeling that bubbles up inside and bursts out at the speed of light. It is uncontrollable and can overcome you with happiness and joy.
Krystal and Jon Hanna were a perfect example of a couple who found love at first sight. They introduced the world to a healthy baby boy in July of 2017 named William. His big blue eyes and calm attitude made this particular photo shoot fun and easy.
Being only about 3 weeks old, this little peanut had a love for the camera.
One of the best things you can do for a newborn photo shoot is feed the baby and have a clean diaper! Most of the time, newborn photos are tricky as the baby has a few different limitations.
1. He/She is probably going to be in a new environment. This means new smells, temperatures and sounds that are unfamiliar. This can cause the baby to be uncomfortable and end up being a bad situation.
2. If not fed or changed, this can cause obvious discomfort.
3. Any medical issues (rash, cold, colicky, sleep etc). will play a factor in how well you can get a good shot in without a grumpy face.
4. Being too hot or too cold is a big one that people tend to forget about. Many trends now a days for photos are having the baby nude. WIthin minutes a baby will let you know if they are too cold or too hot. Make sure to keep some warmed blankets or electric blankets near by. I find that if I am able to out a warm blanket under the scene if materials being used, there will be a happier baby in those shots.
For this specific shoot, we were able to have everything line up just right. Yes, the baby may need to feed or be changed in the middle of a session, but that is expected. Having mom or dad near by allowed William to be at his most comfortable. This is how we were able to get some really beautiful shots of this beautiful baby boy.
There is nothing like a photo shoot going according to plan. They rarely ever happen, but I can say that this was a great success and that we were able to get a good amount of beautiful moments captured.
