There are many styles of newborn and baby photography these days. Some with bright, eye-popping color tones, some with vintage props and baskets, some in studio and some out. No matter your style and photographic values- New mothers, you have every type of session available to choose from.
But I want to share why I believe it is of the utmost importance that YOU are in the portrait session just as much as your baby.
This is about you too.
I know that you feel tired. You feel out of your element. You have days upon days where just a shower feels like a blessing from God Himself. Maybe motherhood is brand new and frightens you to your core. Maybe you worry that you are doing everything wrong. You want your pre-baby weight back before you would even THINK about getting in front of a camera.
I understand. I do. And I am still talking to YOU.
Because I have seen what happens first hand, when mothers like you take the risk, trust me, and become part of the session. When I am invited in to photograph the irreplaceable connection that a new mother has with her baby. It is magic. It creates the images that you will keep for lifetimes. The ones your grandchildren will want to hold and ask you about. The ones you hug tight when uncertainty and struggles may come ahead. The ones you treasure.
This past weekend, this beautiful now mom of two met me in Hartford for her newborn connection portrait session. Julie, from the ever talented makeup team of Simply Gorgeous By Erin met us on location to give this momma the full treatment with hair styling and airbrush makeup. And let me tell you, she looked STUNNING!! It made the experience so special for her. Not to mention how much less work it was not having to worry about getting ready herself that morning.
Here is one of my favorite portraits from her session.
This is almost entirely SOOC. (straight out of camera) I photographed through a sheer curtain and adored the dreamy result!
