I don’t really post (or often get to do) newborn shoots, but while I was visiting the Twin Cities, I got to hang out with my friends Jay and Sarah and their two week old baby boy, Charlie. I’m not good at the posed newborn photos, like the froggy pose, so we did this session more lifestyle. I didn’t give them much prompting— hardly any— and instead focused on catching little details and their interactions together as a family.
My favorite part about photographing newborns is the way their parents dote on them— watching the love for such a new little being be expressed through gentle touches and careful movements.
I also love to photograph crying babies. That probably means I have problems, doesn’t it?
