So many Army families here in Colorado Springs. I am so lucky to live in this community and be able to work with these new tiny humans. This little man came to me with Mom and Dad. They wanted to incorporate a few "Army" sets and I think we totally nailed it. With most sessions I am aiming to get 4 baby focused sets as well as parent and family images. I try to give you a variety to images and poses so that you can choose what will work best with your budget, wall decor and gift prints for family
One important part of newborn photography is keeping baby safe and comfortable. While we did get this tiny peanut to fit in dad's pocket this image is a composite. I used two images to create this simple, safe and comfortable "pocket" pose!
Snuggly parent poses are always the most loved and printed images. I try to get an emotional connection as well as simple, sweet and timeless images to last a lifetime. Many times I choose to wrap baby to keep them most settled during these poses. Again the bucket and flag images below are a composite of two images. Baby is never left unattended and constantly spotted or held by my assistant. There is never any reason to risk baby's safety for a photo. This is for both photographer and parents. Never try to balance baby on something for the sake of Instagram. Hire someone that is going to take the time to ensure your baby's safety and has the experience to capture these images.
