It’s always such a joy to be asked to shoot newborn babies and families. It isn’t lost on me that these are your family memories, a moment in time that that will be treasured forever. Welcoming a new family member into your life is exciting, sweet, chaotic, and scary all at the same time. I like to take the time to figure out what each family is hoping to get as an end product from the photo shoot. With this little family the Mother (who happens to be my sister) wanted to make sure that we got individual shots of baby Andi, some with her big brother, and family pictures with the dogs. Newborn sessions always take longer than just a regular lifestyle shoot – kids are unpredictable and so are newborn babies. However, I don’t mind waiting to get the perfect shot. Babies don’t keep and before you know it they will grow up before your eyes! You aren’t going to want to miss a moment (or a photo opportunity).
