Many of you whom follow my work know that I work mainly with couples, weddings and fashion….the reality is what follows weddings? OOH baby baby you guessed! BABIES! I am humbled each time I am called to capture a child’s first little milestone, their first official shoot is really something special and it’s just as important to me as it is to parents!
Just a few days ago I posted a BLOG about preparing for the first shoot, and although I warn my clients that newborns are unpredictable, I work tirelessly to make sure I capture all the little moments and everything that is happening around them. Often I let my clients know that regardless whether or not the babies cooperate with being smooshed and mooshed into all those cozy little poses, I don’t want parents to panic, I will get those little babies somehow! Another thing to prepare for is “lifestyle” sessions. In the event they jut won’t settle, (it hasn’t happened to me yet), the portrait session will then become a Lifestyle or Day in the Life session. And guess what? It’s still a newborn shoot and still gorgeous I promise! Key is to enjoy each and every precious minute and to capture even what one thinks was not possible.
