Little Miss C was such a joy to photograph recently at her home in Paradise Valley, AZ. Taking photos of Phoenix area newborn babies is truly one of my most favorite pleasures in life, and this little darling was no different.
Ohhhh the sweetness of her tiny toes, squishy cheeks and cuddly arms. If I could photograph phoenix and scottsdale area newborn infant babies all day long, I certainly would!
When photographing newborn babies, it’s important to follow my newborn tips, as closely as possible.
The home should be nice and warm (in this case we shot outside on their patio during the summer… yep, nice and warm, LOL), the baby should be well fed and kept awake for a few hours, if possible, before I get there… and try to take off his or her clothing, or at the very least loosen for about a half and hour before I arrive with my photography equipment, so that there won’t be any marks on the baby from their clothing.
It also helps to set back and let me do my job. If the mom especially gets too close during the newborn photo session, the baby can smell her, and it keeps her more alert than if you take a step back.
I have triplets, so I have a lot of newborn baby experience, plus I specialize in photography of Phoenix newborns, so I have even more newborn infant baby experience than most baby photographers… trust me, I know how to handle a baby, and to get them in that cozy, comfy newborn state that’s perfect for posing them for their first infant photography session. And you’ll love the results, especially in your heirloom baby album, or gorgeous wall canvas with your baby’s first portrait on it. It will be something to treasure for years, and years to come.
And Baby C’s parents did just that. It makes for the most precious sleepy baby poses, keeps the pace going fast during your newborn shoot, and helps reduce stress for the baby, the parents and the photographer. 🙂
Thanks again, Dr. and Dr. C. It was wonderful taking C’s first newborn baby photographs! Can’t wait to do her six month and one-year old portraits as well.
