This newborn shoot was extra special because I used to work with Nikki a few years ago. It’s always such an amazing thing to see your friends become parents for the first time and these two are glowing. I saw their home for the first time that morning and we found the most perfect corner of the nursery to hang out with Reagan. Proof that all you need is a comfortable space with natural light and an hour to spend with your new baby to get authentic, meaningful images.
Newborn shoots, and family shoots in general, are mostly run by the kids. They decide when they want to cry, fuss, laugh and smile, and you work with it, that’s all part of the process. Some of the best moments captured are in the comforting and everyday interactions between you and your kids.
