I’ve photographed several hundred newborns in hospitals, and so now I hope to make the natural transition to doing lifestyle baby photo sessions in the home.
Please meet Brooklyn and Dakota, sweet little 6 week old twin girls. The family is part of the same twins club I belong to here in the Portland area. Aren’t they adorable?? My own twins are so big now, and I loved getting to see and hold such tiny babies again.
This blog has been sorely neglected for months now. You may recall that we moved across the country in August, while I was pregnant. Our twin boys were born at the end of November, and are now 2 1/2 months old. So that’s my excuse. 🙂
I’ve photographed hundreds of babies, but it’s somehow different with my own. I’ve taken so many casual snaps with my iphone, but not as many nicer setups as I would have liked. I’m trying to get better about documenting our two properly–it’s already going by so fast and they’ve already changed so much! Take a look for yourself at a few snapshots from the last few months:
And some detail shots I’ve taken recently:
A couple weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing an adorable family on Roosevelt Island. Julian is six months old, and full of joy! Look at him–he had just woken from a nap with nary a peep, and within a minute was smiling all over the place!
Parents J and D have a side book business, so we made sure to pose him carefully with a big pile of books. (Don’t you love those chubby hands and arms??)
Seriously happy baby!
All three of them are a really sweet family.
They live on Roosevelt Island, and their building has a beautiful roof deck with an amazing view of Manhattan.
Don’t you just love them!
After two weekends on a non-photography business trip, it was fun to get back to the hospital for more baby time!
This family was so cute–I was totally charmed by all of them.
Little lady was so prim and proper, and very calm.
Big brother was so excited.
Look how happy and adorable they all are! Love them!
Yesterday I shot such a sweet family at the hospital. I love when parents are so happy and excited about their new baby. The timing of this shoot went perfectly too–the little one was sleepy for awhile and then she slowly woke up and showed such personality!
I can’t believe I haven’t posted anything this whole month! It’s been a super busy January, with my non-photography work ramping up, and a lot of photography too.
On the weekends, I shoot newborns at hospitals. It’s always fun to meet the babies and their excited parents and families. It’s a very limited time that I have with them, in their hospital room. Sometimes the babies are asleep and pliable, sometimes they’re awake and calm, sometimes they are fussy. Often, they’re a combination of all three. 🙂 So the shots I take are not like the traditional “artistic” studio newborn shots that you see on photography blogs, with sleepy babies draped in baskets, folded up just so. Those shoots take several hours, lots of props, lighting and backdrops, not to mention the magic to keep the baby sleepy and clean. For these shoots, I have a boppy, a hospital blanket, and a hospital bed, for about fifteen minutes. Still, it’s fun to capture each baby and hopefully one or both parents–so much personality and excitement! I love the thought of these photos being treasured for years.
