Shooting a newborn is harder than it looks. Or maybe it looks hard, I don’t know. I’m not God. But I came up with five reasons that every newborn photographer needs a partner.
1- Newborns are squirmy. It takes one person to rub their back, shush them, and give them a bottle, while your partner works at running the white noise machine, cleaning up the pee, and blocking the sunlight.
2- Partners work cohesively to come up with fresh ideas and pick up where the other drops off.
4- Because catching the quiet moment between mom and her new baby wouldn’t have happened if your partner didn’t say “Can you reach down and give her a kiss?”
5- Because catching the smile is teamwork.
Thank you to Jennalle Dunn for collaborating with me. We are now offering sessions at both her home studio in Peabody and my home studio in Georgetown at a significantly reduced price. A new page will be up shortly regarding this amazing offer. Thank you again, Jennalle, and thank you to baby Zoe and her beautiful mom!
This post also happens to fall in the Iheartfaces challenge theme this week, of all things baby!
