I was very excited to have Emily, Jeremy and Beau into the studio for my first newborn of 2015 and also the first newborn to christian the space and do what little newbies do while you are photographing them! Being that Beau was older then my normal newborns (I like them under 10 days) I wondered how he would be, if he would sleep for me and stay asleep or was it going to be a challenging shoot. Beau did phenomenal! He slept soundly, only a little mad at me for moving him around and interrupting his day dreams. Emily and Jeremy had decided on a Mini Newborn session for Beau so at the end of the shoot I wanted to do the shots with the parents. At first Emily was taken off guard, she hadn’t done her hair and put any make-up on but thankfully I was able to convince her to take the pics with Beau. I know from my own experience how precious these images are. They are about the love and the bond between parent and baby. I shoot them up close and of course I will do retouching. I never expect a mother who just had a baby to come to the studio all dolled up. I honestly prefer the more natural look. That bond is beautiful and all the mom has to do is snuggle with their baby and that Glow takes over and it does more then make-up could ever do!
Congrats Emily and Jeremy and enjoy every moment!
