Portland Family Portraits with Newborn Baby
Newborn Photography has risen to an astounding level thanks to Anne Geddes and her amazing vision digitally making babies into adorable sunflowers or the cutest little mermaids you ever did see. She makes baby Halloween costumes wearable all year round and mommies love it! I tried and failed at being anything like her; I can’t seem to swaddle a baby and put him in a basket hoping he doesn’t cry because he will cry (they all cry!) especially with me around. I missed my calling as a baby whisperer, that title fits my husband, but he doesn’t know how to use a camera— hence, I am the photographer in the family. I learned that it’s best for me to leave it to my friends who do this style of photography naturally (and with a lot of patience!), and I will just do what I do best which is include the parents and have them hold baby in their arms.
My style of photographing newborns is called Lifestyle Photography where I document the family as they are in their own home (or my studio); I try to capture those in-between moments that often times get overlooked, but should be cherished because they don’t last forever. These moments are when mommy feeds baby or daddy helping baby learn to walk; your first year together will go by so fast and I want to help you remember those tiny baby steps. Of course, I am sure to get those traditional and beautiful smiling portraits for the proud grandparents, too.
