When I style a newborn session, I ALWAYS take into account what Mama wants. We work closely to design an experience that is unique to her and her little family. I use a color palette that she chooses and add in any props or family heirlooms that are important to her. No two of my custom newborn experiences are the same.
That is one of the things I love about newborn photography. I get to be creative. All the time. It is a challenge for me to create something unique to each client, session after session after session. I think I might come to dislike my job if it was the same thing over and over again. If I had the same setups every single time. If I took the same photos of every single baby. And what would I be offering my clients if I did that? That’s why I make sure to customize each session to my families so that they get unique portraits of their child.
This mama was a girl after my own heart. She wanted neutrals. So we went with creams, grays, and beige. Throw in this SUPER adorable baby and you get an amazing newborn experience. He was a total dream baby. He slept like an angel the entire session. Not to mention those cheeks, that hair, those lips! Totally swoon worthy.
I feel so fortunate that I get to call this work. Who else gets to wake up every single day and help families celebrate life & love? I love that I get to tell their story. It is incredible to be able to create a moment in amongst all of the chaos that is new parenthood, where new moms and dads can really just focus on that amazing, tiny human that they created. I am pretty lucky if you ask me!
If you are expecting or know someone who is, I would be honored to craft a completely custom portrait experience for you!
Me too — I can’t wait to start creating YOUR perfect EJP portrait experience!
