Given that I only take a limited amount of newborns a month (2 maybe 3 depending on the due dates), I end up having some gaps between them (when I’m editing mostly) but it also means that in order to keep my skills sharp and help our sessions move as efficiently as possible I need to “practice” in between shoots. Up till now I’ve been using one of Lia’s super floppy baby dolls and it works okay. It helps me hone my poses but it has its limitations. It just doesn’t articulate like a real baby.
Being a photographer that works primarily in natural light doing maternity, newborn, and family portraits I don’t actually have a formal studio. For my maternity and family portraits we’re often outside at a park or urban area and making the best out of what nature can supply lighting wise. For my newborn clients I come to you so that you can relax in the comfort of your own home while your baby has their first photoshoot!
