Newborn photography can be so rewarding when you can create photographs that look like works of art. Most of the time the parents will chose the images that show the baby’s face as much as possible. As a photographer I go for the ones that look more like abstract or fine art prints. Of course I shoot both types to provide the parents with a variety of choices. However, often the parents do fall in love with the artsy ones and they will end up being framed in a large 20×24″ frame on a wall in their home. I photograph newborn babies within the first 12 days of being born. They tend to sleep a lot more, have better skin, and be more flexible so we can get them into those cute little poses. Mason was no exception. Once he’d had his morning dose at the milk bar, he slept allowing me to get the shots I wanted,and was actually pretty hard to wake up in the afternoon!
