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