Baby Boy Laksh | 7 days new & 6 pounds of newborn goodness
Good morning to you, friends! Today's blog post is full of so much sweetness my heart could probably burst. I'd like to begin by welcoming you to my little 'ol blog. Here is where I showcase precious, squishy babies, radiant baby bumps and adorable families. My studio is where most of my sessions take place, since I specialize in newborn portraiture, however, I do offer on location, natural light sessions, too! I like to think it's the best of both worlds.
Today's blog post focuses on parent posing and what you can expect during our time together. You see, like most of you, I'm a mama. I have three little girls named Emma, Lucy and Amelia. I can attest to how important family photos; my relationship with my little ones and love for them shapes the decisions I make during my sessions, particularly on how I pose families and parents. My philiosphy is to embrace the spirit of your family and keep your images lifestyle in nature. If you're unsure what this means, it's pretty simple: candid, natural, authentic. I encourage you to interact with your precious baby but also make sure the technical aspects of the portraits look nice. We think about light, shadows, contours of how the light/shadows affect the over dynamics of the image, but also that you're the focus. Your connection with baby is everything. This unconditional love deserves to be celebrated. This in mind, each newborn collection I offer has family photos included because it's important to capture this fleeting time. Baby is only a newborn for a few short weeks.
If you'd like to check out baby's individual portraits from this session, I'd love if you could take a moment to do so! However, today's post will focus on the parent posing sample images.
This adorable family contacted me to book their newborn collection when baby was just a few days old. I was happy to offer them three dates. While most parents book in the second trimester, I sometimes have last minute openings and welcome all inquiries even if baby is already earth side. Newborn sessions do take place in the first two weeks of life, give or take a few days, and so it's important to contact me as early as possible.
Baby Boy Laksh was 6 pounds when he visited my studio. He slept beautifully for me and his parents did a fantastic job prepping him! Mom is absolutely gorgeous and motherhood looks amazing on her!
When working with you, I like to think of your baby as the focal point. I always wrap your little one for family portraits, which take place right at the beginning of your session. I have taken workshops on both newborn safety and posing to ensure baby is well cared for during our session. I also use professional lighting and camera gear so you're sure to have the very best.
Most portraits are shot elbow up to ensure baby is the focus of your image. I give plenty of direction and pose baby so you feel secure. I also make sure I do not walk away until you have baby snuggled in your arms.
Most of your photos are lifestyle in nature, meaning they're more about iterating together as a family, however, I often include 1-2 images where everyone is smiling and looking at the camera because grandparents like this set up. It's nice to gift some prints to your parents, too!
The rest of these images are my favorites from his parent portion of his session.
I hope you enjoy viewing. Wishing you and your sweet family all my joy and warmth today!
