I had my first ever newborn shoot on Sunday with Cassie and her 1.5 week old baby Kobe. Her son Hayden also came along, but was a bit camera shy. I was pretty nervous to try this new genre of portrait photography, especially since I don’t have a lot of experience with babies in general. My friend Irene came along to help out and hold a reflector for me. It was great to have an extra pair of hands and set of eyes to make sure the baby didn’t roll into the river or anything.
The focus was supposed to be on baby shots, but I definitely have a weakness for mama and baby shots. I love photos where people are interacting with one another, especially when those people clearly love each other so much.
