We all dread it. School picture day. “Say cheese” often right after gym class! A quick snap with who knows what type of smile or expression. We cross our fingers there aren’t too many lunch stains on their shirt and that they hair looks at least semi-normal. We love the photo because its our child but is this really the best way to capture your child through the years?
Baby-led posing. This is how you would describe a relaxed, natural, womb-like posing style focused on creating simple, classic, timeless newborn photography. Sometimes parents may think “studio newborn photography” must mean baby is put in awkward positions, posed with many props, bright colors, elaborate set ups etc. That is one style of photography and there are some very talented photographers skilled in that area. However, I am drawn to a very simple approach. My goal is that you see your baby, not the set up.
We all love having our babies photographed! From when they are still in your belly, to their milestones through the first year. Then there is a long wait until those senior photos when they are 18! Some of the best parts of their childhood are the sweet expressions, their facial features changing, their personalities showing. We always take individual images of each kid at outdoor family sessions but there is something to said about focusing just on them for a short session to really photograph them. Their features. Their freckles. Their personalities. I’m so thrilled to be adding children’s portraits to my services.
2019 is bringing a new website and I could not be more excited. The last few years have been such a blessing with lots of wonderful sessions that have not made it to the blog or website. I cannot wait to share some of my favorite newborn and milestone sessions with you all and show you how timeless, classic images can be created in your home no matter the light you have, the style of images you choose, or type of home you live in.
Fresh 48 sessions are when I come to your hospital room the first few days after babies arrival and we capture the details that only occur in the hospital. The hospital bracelet, the iconic swaddle blanket and knit hat, their tiny tiny tiny toes and fingers holding tightly to mom. Its very personal and authentic. What I LOVE is when we take it to the next level and shoot a meet the sibling session.
