Being a newborn photographer, I love shooting in my studio. I have everything within an arms reach and everything has its place. Yet sometimes, newborns are not able to get to my studio and that’s perfectly ok! I stuffed my car (a 4 door sedan) with EVERYTHING I would possibly need to do a newborn session and head to a clients home. Mom was pretty impressed with how much stuff (beanbag and all) I was able to squeeze into my vehicle. I am a self proclaimed expert packer stuffer, due to having 2 kids and prior military experience.
This gorgeous mama hand a beautiful home with lots of ambient light, problem was it was cloudy/rainy that day. No sun no problem. Well kind of. Remember how I said I was an expert packer stuffer? I even brought my studio lights and reflectors along with me. Because I’d rather be over prepared than not.
After several trips to the car, setup and a feeding later; we got started. Beautiful miss Olivia has the most gorgeous blue eyes that just loved to look at me, and I couldn’t get enough. Olivia was almost 4 weeks old at the time of the shoot and as a huge positive for photos of slightly older babies, you usually get lots of lovely eye open. Even though 10 days is the ideal age for newborn photos, I am able to get great images from any age.
