Here is a shot from a infant session I did recently, newborn photography is probably the toughest of all portrait work, photographing a newborn seems like it wouldn’t be that hard but of course even at that age kids have a mind of their own !!
You would think most newborns would just lay there and sleep thru the entire session..wrong answer it seems like every new born has pretty much marched to their own drummer and decided that they need to be kept in the loop to all the things happening around them.
I was really surprised on how much they moved and how strong they can be, I have checked out online all the other sites where the kids seemed to always be in this angelic type sleep…I am not buying it for a minute, I am thinking these kids have been been put in a zombie like trance by some witch doctor that these photographers have on their payroll !! Okay so I am laying it on pretty thick , but I will tell some of these photographers are definitely quite accomplished at getting these shots and hopefully someday I will be able to bring every baby thru that door and instantly they will fall into a deep sleep and make my lief so much easier!!
Now all kidding aside I was able to get this little beauty to pose quite nicely for us and came out with great shots..so it’s not quite as bad as I let on, and though challenging at times it is definitely worth the effort to work with these amazing little models !!
