Let’s catch up on some blogging, shall we?! I’ve been so busy lately, between the Spring Portrait season and my little ones wrapping up their last few weeks in school. The blog seems to be the thing that always slips when my attention is required on more important tasks. But I’ve had so many great sessions I’ve wanted to share and just haven’t been able to yet … time to fix that!
There are a lot of new babies in Atlanta! The key to newborn portrait sessions is patience. We must take our time. In my experience, you can’t rush a newborn through a formula of poses because you can’t expect her to understand our adult timetables and plans. She just knows what she needs – to be nurtured, loved, a full tummy and a warm cuddle. She wants, and deserves, to be comfortable and safe. Those are my priorities in a session and you’ll see it reflected in the images.
This beautiful baby girl was an absolutely perfect little model. Darling Rachael Rose made my job so easy! She was calm and content through our entire session. She shared those gorgeous bright eyes with us, but also dozed off happily for some sleepy shots. Isn’t she precious?
The last image you see is now a very large portrait to be displayed in this sweet family’s home. I must admit, seeing my clients embrace the impact a large print can have makes me one very happy photographer.
