Newborn Photographer

Newborn Photographer – Scottsdale | Paradise Valley | Gilbert | Chandler

I never tire of working with newborns. They tend to create their own art. Every newborn I have ever worked with seemed to have their own ideas for how their photo session should go. Some sleep peacefully throughout, some need a little more soothing and coaxing, but all of them have brought to game their own unique little personalities. Personalities that are clearly evident even in their first few days of life.

“You are the finest, loveliest, tenderest, and most beautiful person I have ever known…
and even that is an understatement.” F. Scott Fitzgerald

At almost every newborn session I hear some variation of a comment about how much patience it must take to photograph newborns. It certainly does take patience, but not just on my part. The babies have to be as patient with me as I have to be with them. I am the one interrupting their peace with my posing, propping, shifting, and maneuvering. It’s all done extremely safely, gently, and carefully of course. But even still there are occasionally little protests from these tiny ones…and rightfully so. In their first days they have known nothing other than peaceful snuggles, full bellies, and warm security. Because of that, I try hard to make sure that they feel comfortable trusting me right away. When I can establish that bond with a newborn right away…we can accomplish just about anything together. And that’s when the magic happens.
