Today, I’d like to welcome Baby Messiah and his Mom, Crystal, to the El Paso Portraits family!
During our initial phone consultation, Crystal was really worried that she should’ve scheduled his newborn session earlier (he was already 3 weeks old) and most photographers really want to photograph newborns between 7 and 14 days because babies are more likely to be really sleepy… but even though he was a month old at the time of his photo session, with some proper planning, we were able to capture some beautiful images of both – his eyes open and while sleeping.
The trick is to plan your portrait session near baby’s feeding time… and feed them while your here. After your baby is fed and changed he or she will probably be awake and happy for a few poses and then get sleepy, then we can focus on all those cute little wraps and sleepy baby photos.
Crystal is thinking of decorating her home with a wall portrait for the baby’s nursery and mentioned that she likes navy blue and so I made sure to incorporate this beautiful color into her newborn photo session.
