The Stuff of a Newborn Photographer’s Dreams | Austin Newborn Photographer

In the Summer of 2012, I photographed my very first newborn clients. One of those was 17-day-old Ellison, an adorable baby boy, who we posed in the backyard. Those were pre-studio days. This year, I had the pleasure of welcoming Ellison and his family into the studio for this session with his brand new baby brother, Everett.

It’s such an honor to have a family come back to me for another session with another new baby. Both boys together with their parents were a total joy to shoot, and I couldn’t have asked for a better newborn to work with that day.

When you’re a photographer of newborns, and your client cannot be woken up no matter how much you position and reposition them, flip them, push and prod them, change the set, or change their clothes, it’s basically your luckiest day. That’s when the magic happens!  A full head of hair, sleepy grins, and an “unwakeable” baby: this is the stuff of a newborn photographer’s dreams.
