When a photographer births a baby, you know the pictures are going to be worth seeing. And our baby was ready to arrive less than a week after our last wedding!
I was so excited about having my own newborn to play with during that ideal newborn photography age of 3-10 days old. I had props, lighting, and inspiration ready to go!
And then we had an incredible birth at home that Josh was able to photograph … and I found I never wanted to put my baby down. I wanted to spend all this time staring in wonder at her perfection. I didn’t want to pick up a camera, I didn’t want to think about all the amazing images I could create, and I certainly didn’t want to put her down! I found myself not very interested in the regular studio – look images … I wanted images that captured our life as it was. I wanted authentic images.
This desire for authentic images will no doubt influence my future newborn shoots … I’m excited to see my photography style evolve.
Expect things to slow way down here at Brown Eyed Photography while we enjoy our new baby. Thank you for your patience during this time.
