Recently I decided I would really like to add more newborns to my portfolio and learn the art of posing a newborn. (Let me tell you, it is difficult!) I enlisted the help of another wonderfully talented photographer and friend, Heather Wilson and then spread the word that I was looking for a cute model to practice on. I got a great response and pretty soon I got an email about a baby boy who was born on December 29th. His name his Salvador, or “Sal,” and his mom was gracious enough to allow us to come to her home and do a practice session. It took four hours!! But we got some beautiful shots and I am quite happy with the results. I am looking forward to using some of the posing methods that I learned at my next practice session, which will happen fairly soon (mom is still pregnant).
I was excited to use the hat in the photo above because it’s one I made especially just for this session.
I really love how this perspective shows how small he is…
This one is probably my favorite expression. He looks like he is having a funny dream!
