I loved working with smiley little London for her session. She came to me at three months old, and I love that we were able to get a nice selection of both awake and sleepy portraits. I’m so happy for this beautiful family!  There is a gorgeous album on the way to the family soon!

Newborn Safety Week

November 20, 2015

This week is Newborn Safety Week, in our newborn photography circles.  I wanted to share with my clients the measures that I take to make sure your baby is safe in the studio.  90% of the poses that I do in the studio are very safe with no risk involved; beanbag shots, and shots of baby in basket laying down surrounded by fluffy and pretty textures.  I do like to take bucket shots, and those to require extra safety steps.  I won’t put baby in this pose, unless his or her arms will easily get into position.  I can tell when they will, and when they won’t.  And if I’m not sure, I might attempt, but I will never let go of baby until I’m certain he or she is not going to move.  In this particular pose, I prefer to have a parent “point” with a finger, and support baby’s head.  I would rather edit out a hand than have baby startle and have an issue with safety.  So, there you have it – a before and after in one of my favorite baskets/props.

Sweet Sloane did a wonderful job during her session. She was so sleepy for me… and just look at this smile!  LOVE!
