Sunset Photoshoot

February 24, 2015

Can you believe the weather we’ve been having lately?! 65 degrees in the middle of February sure puts a smile on my face. Over the weekend I took my daughter out just before sunset to try and capture the beautiful golden light. These are a few of my favorites, and show that you don’t need to wait until summertime for a family photo session!

“Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again.”

– Henri Cartier-Bresson

Happy Monday everyone!  Today I’m sharing some images from the S Family’s recent newborn photo session. Like most of my newborn photography, this was shot at my studio in Salmon Creek.

This first shot of newborn Alice gazing up at her parents turned out to be one of their favorites from their entire session, even though neither mom or dad wanted to be in any photos.

Many times new parents tell me they don’t want to be included in the newborn photography session; they’re sleep-deprived and just don’t feel they look their best. I’m a mom, I TOTALLY get it! But in sessions where parents have decided to humor me and take a few images with their little one, they always tell me they are so thankful that I talked them into it 😉

Being in the photos doesn’t mean we’ll have to do full-body shots of mom and dad! As you can see from the images below there are lots of ways to include parents…cropping close in, shooting in silhouette, or even just using your hands holding your little one.  I’ll pose and light you so you look your best…no undereye circles or tummy pooches in sight!

These newborn days fly by so quickly, so don’t miss the opportunity to capture your family during this special time. Contact me or give me a call at 360-907-6732 to set up your newborn photography session today!
