I’ve met this amazing family last week and was honored to take pictures of them and especially the pictures of their newborn baby boy. I do not usually take much with me, just my camera, couple of lenses, white clean blanket and few props for babies (headbands and hats). I always try to find how things are going with light at clients home as shooting newborn session only with a natural light is my highest priority. So basically if you have your photo shoot starting at 11:30 am, you have a window:), your baby is full and sleepy - that works perfectly for all of us! And why 11:30 am? From my experience I would say that if you have windows facing east, morning sun goes directly through ii tand makes pretty harsh shadows. After 11:30 am or later it rises up enough to make the light in room soft and perfect.
I love every single moment I spent with this family, I love the light around, I love their smiles and tenderness of those precious moments, how they care about their little one… I wish all the best to this little boy and his parents. Enjoy highlights from their beautiful, light-filled newborn session celebrating baby Sonah!
