It's always fun to see how many baby boys vs baby girls I get to photograph every year. Boys are already in the lead again this year 2:1! So far we've had a Bentley, Ethan and Claire. Don't worry though I've got a few more girls on my schedule soon to balance it out.
I've been spending more of my time focusing my efforts on newborns, babies and cake smash sessions this year since that is where my heart really is! I enjoy the creative outlet of coming up with different sets or just putting a different spin on something I've done in the past.
My slower season for photography has been filled with lots of educational videos on things like posing, workflows, and lighting. I'm still trying to figure out the best way to use lighting while also traveling to client homes. The ideal lighting set up just isn't feasible for constant set up and tear down. In the past, I've relied heavily on natural light in lots of homes this isn't much of an issue, but in homes like my own, natural light is hard to come by and let's not even talk about those cloudy/rainy days where there is no sun to be seen. So I've finally fully given into studio light, and can find the value in the extra time it takes me to set up and tear down that extra piece of equipment.
My ultimate goal for 2019 is to finally get the space available at my home refinished into a studio space where I can do newborn through one-year-old sessions. As nice as it is to go to my clients for their sessions, it's also really nice to have everything you need in one spot and not have to tear it all apart and shove it in the trunk of your car between every single session!
I'll leave you with a look at some of my favorite newborn shots from this year's newborn sessions!
