Baby Isabella, Newborn Photography Session
Isabella is just the sweetest little sugarplum! I was swooning over her adorable features our whole portrait session, every time I would get her into a set up and snap the portraits I would just stare at her in awe not wanting to move her again. She was so peaceful the whole session, I could have photographed her all day long!!
It was my birthday this week and my grandma gave me a bunch of pictures from when I was a baby. Looking through the photos I couldn’t help but think about why I do what I do as a baby photographer.. and this is exactly my ‘why’. 24 years ago when I was born “newborn portraits” were a brightly lit (or maybe totally underexposed) picture taken quickly at the hospital, baby swaddled in the hospital blanket and with no editing done. It is amazing how much the industry has changed and now having professional newborn photos done is considered just as important as having beautiful wedding portraits taken. I love having these pictures of my babyhood to look back at and show my children, that is why I do what I do. I create heirloom portraits for not only parents/families to enjoy in the moment but for many, many years to come. This is also a reminder to how important it is to print out pictures, display them in our homes, and keep them to pass down to our children when they are grown. And not only your professional pictures, your every day pictures as well! Print, print, print! (even as a professional photographer I need to remind myself this)
I consider it such an honor when someone books me to be their newborn photographer. It takes a lot of trust for a new mom to hand her 6-14 day old newborn over to a complete stranger. If you are looking for a newborn photographer in the Hartland, WI area I would love to chat!
