The Newest Newborn in my Life

I am thrilled to say that I have a new little photo guinea-piglet, in the form of my 9-day old niece.  This little one will have plenty of picture time with Aunt Kim, because she sure is cute!  She hasn’t made it into the studio yet for her “official” newborn photo session, but we did have an informal natural light session at home.  No lights other than the soft window light (thanks to my wonderful camera, I can get fantastic results even in low-light situations!), a cozy blanket over a dog bed (yes, I’ll admit it), and the warmth of a space heater to keep that little 7.5lb body warm and happy.  I’m honestly not sure which I prefer– studio photography or natural light photography for newborns… each has such merit.  In the studio you can craft and create such works of fine art.  The light is controlled, and with the simplicity of the backdrops, the images are so striking!  Natural light has a softness about it that pairs so nicely with a delicate new baby.  The gentleness of the images, the personal touch of being at home, and the variety of locations & props also produce fantastic results.  So which should a new Mom & Dad choose for their new baby?  It really depends on the style you prefer– Take a look at these at-home photos, and then stay tuned next week when I get this little one in the studio for her studio shoot… make a comment– let me know which style of newborn photography you prefer!

Don’t Let Me Babysit!!

My brother and sister-in-law innocently left me home with their 10-day old newborn baby boy… Surprise surprise, I took it upon myself to turn their back yard construction site into our very own natural light studio backdrop!  The warm summer day provided a comfortable environment for my adorable little nephew, and aside from his displeasure in being repositioned every two minutes, he was a great model!  While I love the studio’s fine-art approach to newborn photos, the outdoor & natural light environment provides a fun alternative– and an endless supply of props!

My brother’s response when I showed him the pictures??  “No you didn’t…  I never would have let you do that.”  He loved them!  They’re coming in the studio tonight for their “official” newborn portrait session. 

Here are some of my favorite shots!
