His mom contacted me about the casting call I did for newborn babies in the Katy / Richmond area on Facebook a couple weeks back. She sent me a picture of him at 2 days old and I knew he was the one I’d choose.
He came in to model all of the little boy props and backdrops I haven’t used so I can put together a page of props here on the site.
I’m so glad that she did! He was seriously a gem.
I wasn’t planning on putting up a post on this session but it would be an injustice not to! Everyone deserves to see a bit of this cuteness.
The worst I got from him was this super funny dirty look for waking him up with the **click**click** of my camera.
This newborn babe is so handsome I can hardly stand it!
His mommy and grandma came with him and over and over again they said “You’re so patient! I don’t know how you do it!”
To do newborn photography- the trick is going slow and making baby feel as comfortable as possible.
It is a JOY to snuggle these little ones and create art for their families. I never find it taxing. Not in the least.
THIS YAWN! Oh man. So precious.
Using a macro lens with an extender I am able to capture the little details of newborn babies that fade so quickly…
Are these little pants not to DIE for?? I love them. ALMOST as much as I love this antique family store scale:
A little insight into photos like the one above: They are composites of a multiple photos- Moms hand was on baby the ENTIRE TIME.
Babies safety is always my number one concern. Babies are little people- not props. I want them to be comfortable, calm, and safe through the entire session.
I use a wide angle lens so I can have my hand on or very close to baby the entire time. That’s how I can achieve the snuggly squishy photos like these.
Man. I love my job.
