When of the best parts of my job is the longterm relationships than are often developed with my clients. Often I am first hired to be their boudoir photographer. Then they come back for their maternity photos. And shortly after that they will return for photos of their newborn baby.
These photos are typically taken within a week or two of the baby’s birth. The ideas is to capture how tiny they are as they grow so fast during the first few months.
I refer to this pose as the handful pose. It is one of several poses I like to use with newborns to show just how tiny they were. This time our little star was awake, but very often they are asleep for many of the photos. Of course everybody’s heart just melts when they see those cute sleeping little babies.
Of course they will continue to grow-up so much faster than you can imagine. Before long they will be graduating high school and need senior pictures. Then college and then kids of their own.
So be sure to capture all those special times as time will pass so quickly.
