Simply Newborn

I recently read an article by a photographer in Seattle about why she doesn’t pose newborns and I thought, “yes!  that’s totally me!”  As she points out “when you take a sleeping baby and lay him or her down on a bed, they all do something different.  Some curl up, some stretch out their legs (or just one leg), others will put their tiny hand up in front of their face, or give a little fist bump pose.”  Those are the moments I want to capture for my clients.  Those are the moments you’ll look back on years from now and say “they still sleep that way!”, “they still make that face!”.  I want you to remember the way your older children cuddled their new sibling, and the way they fit in your arms.  So, I don’t pose newborns.  I simply let them be the perfect creation they are.
