Until recently I have not wanted to do newborn photography. It scared me. The babies are so little and fragile. But I have had several people ask me so recently I decided to take some steps into photographing newborns. I asked around on a some of the forums I am part of and looked at examples of some of my favorite photographers. And while I think a lot of the more posed newborn photographs are absolutely adorable they do not seem to fit my more organic style.
So I began to research natural newborn photography. I love the idea of photographing newborns as they are.
I have begun that journey and it is was pretty fabulous. Newborns hold so much promise, so much hope, so much joy for their parents. This is my favorite shot from my first solo true newborn shoot.
