I have a confession to make – I am totally and hopelessly behind on blogging, posting sneak peeks and recent sessions, both newborn and family (YES! I do outdoor family sessions! I love doing outdoor family sessions! It’s a huge passion of mine and yet I haven’t done any posts featuring some of my outdoor portrait work). I am about three years behind, and given that I recently migrated my blog, I am also behind on migrating about 100 posts with session photos from the “old blog”.Â Arrrghh, the good news is that I am so behind because I am busy shooting, processing, uploading, placing orders and communicating with clients. The “bad” news is that I have A LOT of sessions and blog posts to catch up on! So, I am going to make a public promise and commit to posting more of my recent work. It’ll be great for prospective clients from Northern Virginia to see some of my current photography, it’ll be great for me as it’ll give me an opportunity to evaluate my own work, it’ll be (hopefully) interesting to my photography colleagues and friends, and (let’s admit it) it’ll be great for seo.
Without further ado, here are some shots that I was privileged to take of Baby E. during a recent newborn studio session. I collaborated with Mom to put together a couple of different looks and setups that Mom and Dad would like, and am so happy to see the results! I know Mom loved the proofs, and I feel so incredibly honored that E.’s parents and many other families choose me to photograph their precious newborns to capture incredibly amazing, awesome, fleeting moments while their little ones are still so really little!
First off, some traditional photos of Baby and family photos on black background. What a beautiful family!And, wow, Mom – to be this gorgeous after just having a baby!Just wow!
I LOVE this macro of Baby’s lips – E. is such a girlie girl!
Adding some color – pink and purple stretch knit wraps and fabrics, and a beautiful knit bonnet hat!
I really really like the simple and organic, yet versatile look of this image of E. sleeping in a wool “braid”. This newborn picture is so light and beautiful!
The swing shot is one of the most recently requested images!
Mom wanted to see a couple of close up, macro shots. Sometimes, I like combining macro shots with some color, and I really like the one this shot turned out – it still focuses attention on Baby’s tiny toes, yet it’s also colorful and “girlie”.
A huge thank you to E’s Mom and Dad for choosing me to be E’s newborn photographer, and a huge thank you to all my wonderful clients for trusting me with capturing their most cherished memories!
