Newborn babies are precious and this one was a perfect angel during her session. Mom and Dad are new parents and were excited to get some photographs of their daughter. The mom also happens to be a photographer (woo!), so it was really special knowing she picked me out of all the many photographers in the Philadelphia area to capture her baby girl.
One thing that most families tend to worry about is space and lighting. Some homes have a ton of lighting and blessed with that natural shine, but there are some rooms that do need a little help. Believe it or not, it doesn’t matter what your home setting looks like. Dark or bright, a picture can be taken in any setting with the right tools. The mom was a bit worried about her nursey being too dark, but it actually ended up being one of my favorite places to shoot! Just look at the colorful newborn decor!
I’ve been doing a lot of lifestyle newborn sessions lately and favor them over the traditional pose. Sure the traditional prop and posed look is cute and trendy, but without any family involvement, where is the action? I can’t hate on the traditional poses. I enjoyed capturing my cousin’s newborn baby and trying a few traditional poses a year and a half ago. I definitely would love to do more of them in the future with the right patience and time. But being able to capture the in-the-moment of a lifestyle session just feels more natural and real to me. You can see the positive energy between mother, father, and child when you step back and just grab the moment.
