Highland Village Newborn Session
Baby Boy with Neutral Colors
I photographed a newborn session up in Highland Village a few weeks ago. I packed up my car with all of my newborn items that I had selected. If you’ve had a newborn session with me, you know that I bring a LOT of stuff! Mom didn’t have any specific colors or themes, so I got to design everything. I had selected lots of neutral colors for her little boy’s session. They ended up matching the decor in her home pretty well!
Baby With Props
I typically start my sessions with some newborn prop images. A bucket, bed, or bowl can add some beautiful variety to them! These are always done with baby’s safety in mind first and foremost. I will often ask mom or dad to have a hand on their baby if I need to switch lenses or adjust lighting. If you’ve ever seen the video of a newborn crawling up mommas chest to get food, you would know that even babies can make sudden and large movements. Safety first, always!
Once my prop photos have been taken, I move on to my beanbag work. These are where I get all of those beautiful detail images- eyelashes, fingers, toes, back rolls. They are some of my favorites, and add something extra special to your album. I also get lots of different poses, with baby curled up and laying out, wrapped, or in a cute little outfit.
Family portraits are always important when I can get them. For this session, Mom and Grandmom were there, so we got a great three-generation portrait for them. This is such a special time to be able to capture everyone! You never know what might happen in the future, which is why I always like to take advantage of this time and get those family portraits. They are what will be cherished for a very long time!
