Newborn Workshop | With Melanie Anderson | Portrait Photographer in Haymarket VA

September 22, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

When starting out in photography, it's sometimes difficult to determine what area one wants to specialize in so you tend to dabble in everything. Newborns draw me because I absolutely love everything about them, how they smell, how they feel, and the sweet noises that they make. Nothing is more lovely or innocent. It is in looking at a newborn that God's miracle of creation really comes to light!

There is so much to know about photographing newborns. Safety is paramount and there is definitely a way to work with them. It is not an area that one wants to enter without being thoroughly prepared and trained. I am certainly taking the time to study this area but I don't feel that I am quite ready to add this area to my business. There are also so many props, blankets, and backgrounds that would need to purchased. It would take a small fortune :) Still, if I get the chance to work with newborns, I take it! It is such a treat. In a few weeks, I will have the honor to photograph my friend Keyla's baby girl. I can't wait! 

These images were captured at a workshop with Melanie Anderson. While she normally uses window light, that particular day was dark and overcast so we simply used the modeling lamp from a strobe using a large softbox. And here they are in all of their glory. Arent' they just precious?
