I recently did another family photography and newborn photography session and they referred Baby Colton’s family to us. We are always excited to hear that we have been recommended by someone. To us that is the best compliment someone can get! Word of mouth is far more powerful than any paid advertisement.
I had been talking to Baby Colton’s mother via text and email for a few weeks ironing out all the details. We arrived at their home, setup shop, and started shooting their family photos. They pretty much let us do what we do. They did have a few requests of certain photos to be taken, and I always welcome that, but knowing our clients trust us to do our job and then they just go with the flow makes the whole process that much more fun and exciting!
All of these pictures were taken in their home. We utilized different rooms of their home and some simple backdrops to mix things up a bit as well as our portable lighting that we bring on site when we do indoor shoots. The added studio lights give the photos an added pop that you just can not usually get inside due to low lighting conditions.
We photographed Newborn Baby Alynn’s parents about a month prior to this shoot in a maternity shoot. So, we were excited to get the phone call saying that baby Alynn had been born! Newborn Baby Alynn was 4 days old when we did this shoot. We have not photographed many baby girls up to this point so we were thrilled to see the bows and butterfly wings that Newborn Baby Alynn’s parents had picked out.
We did these photos in their home. Especially with newborns we feel it best to do the photos in their own home. This just makes things more comfortable for Mom, Dad, and especially Baby. Many times babies need more time to eat, have diapers changed, cuddle with Mom, whatever it may be. We always book extra time for newborn photo sessions (at no extra charge) to be able to comfortably handle these kinds of things.
In the end, we took our time, and the photos came out great!
