Newborn photography shoot with an older sister. And lots of princess dresses!
As I’ve said before, one thing I love is getting follow up calls. Why? Because I am always so amazed seeing these kids grow up. I can’t explain it but it just feels like a precious surprise each time.
The last time I saw Kelley he was 10 days old. And really he was more like -20 days old because he was born prematurely. He was super tiny. And there was no way to tell what kind of a person he would become.
Now, seeing him again at 9 months you can start to see where he is headed in life. The first thing I noticed was his red hair! Yay for recessive genes :)
But what I noticed most as we hung out for a couple of hours was how happy he was and how much he loves his parents. And how much they love him in return.
Newborn safety is something I care a lot about. I’ve done tons of research but just to make sure I was dotting all my i’s and crossing all my t’s, I took a course to get certified in newborn photography safety through AANPS.
Here’s my little cheat sheet I put together on what to look out for. This is general and does not include much on posing. Luckily since I don’t do posing my approach is very safe. I’m simply there to document natural moments. If you choose to go with a photographer who does poses I suggest reading up on it.
