I was so excited when this lovely couple from Northern New Jersey contacted me about photographing their brandy new newborn baby! (It was nice to see him in person, since I felt like I’d photographed him before during their maternity photography session not so many weeks ago!).
So this was my first newborn session and this little baby was the best I could have asked for. A perfect model! Not only was he exceptionally cute (apparently, life agrees with him) but he was also just really sweet all around. And I have never in my life seen a newborn baby SMILE so much! Friends, I tell thee, these are not “gas” smiles. These are “oh, is that mama’s voice I hear coming from that corner? Let me turn my face in that happy direction” smiles. Utterly amazing. This baby is happy to be in the world.
So, here are the formal shots.
But this couple also prearranged for me to do some additional informal, journalistic style photography as part of their newborn photography package. And I so glad they did! Sometimes, the best shots happen when everybody’s just chilling out.
Here are a few.
I would love love love to photograph more newborns. While I’m still in my portfolio building phase, I’m keeping session fees as low as a I can. Please reach out if you’re expecting!
Also, I’m currently booking for my holiday photo sessions for children and families!
Cheers and best!
