I am very far behind in blogging. I don’t know why I find it hard to blog, I love sharing my sessions and I know this is the best way to do that but I guess it is just something that tends to fall to the end of the list of priorities. Well, at least I finally got around to this blogging this session. Also, I am running a special at the moment. Book a newborn session before March 31st and you will get a free mini-maternity session. Baby does not have to be born by March 31st but the session must be booked with a contract and deposit.
When I first started photographing newborns there was something I felt that was missing, I realized that in order to photograph newborns the way I wanted I had to get rid of all the fluff, focus on the baby and family. That is what I focused on and now I love photographing newborns. I love doing a mix of a simple posed newborn session with a lifestyle session.
Nothing is better than watching a family interact and being able to capture them as they are. After Nicholas had some cake I documented his life as a one year old. Having a cake smash is cute, but those are not the photos that will be treasured in 20, 30, 40 years. Reaching up into the arms of your mom, or giving her a gummy smile are the ones that will bring tears to the eyes one day, and I am so joyful that my clients trust me to do this for them.
You know when you meet someone and instantly click, that is exactly what happened with this family. It was as if we had been friends for years, when literally we had only just met. It shouldn't have been surprise that I would like Sylvia's mommy since we have a very good mutual friend, but you never know when you meet your client for the first time in person. I was happy to hear that this family likes to take in strays, so I am hoping that means they may take me in too because I had the best time chatting and connecting with them.
