Love. Joy. The exhilarating – maybe partly from exhaustion! – feeling that your new child has arrived. There’s nothing like it.
Cementing that feeling through authentic images is what I do. It’s what drives me to my camera every day.
And it’s why I won’t let today’s challenges prevent me from capturing those moments for you. I know how to successfully – and safely – photograph your new family from afar. And I know you’ll adore the results.
Boston Outdoor Newborn Photography
Yes, usually newborn sessions are held indoors. Usually I’m up close to you and your newborn, maybe even a sibling or pet! I used to touch some items, like the beautiful blankets that often arrive as gifts or the adorable stuffed toys that add fun to a photo.
But trust me, none of that close-up positioning or staging is necessary to create images that illustrate the amazing early days after a birth.
Love is Love. And when it is present, you can’t help but guarantee it makes it to the camera.
It doesn’t matter if we are indoors or outside in your backyard, which is where this newborn session took place earlier this month.
Thanks to an amazing array of lenses in my bag, I can stand ten feet away from you and your family and still take images that appear up close. In fact, this image above was taken in the side yard of my client’s home and I was standing approximately 15 feet away!! I was able to tell Dad exactly where to stand and how to hold his baby so I could frame him perfectly in front of the arbor and greenery. All he had to do then, was to look at his new baby girl. That part is so easy!
All the heart eyes for his look of LOVE!!
I use my words to tell you how to sit, where to stand and if your baby needs shifting. Sure, this takes a tad longer than it used to, but we have time. I’d never rush you through a newborn session, so put all those anxieties aside.
While having Boston Outdoor Newborn Photography sessions might seem new, it’s not. I’ve been doing newborn sessions in the New England summer and fall for almost a decade, and we often head outside for a few minutes if we can. This is especially helpful for families with siblings. So, again, nothing new here.
Rest assured, I take safety seriously and I am a fanatical planner 🙂 We’ll be in sync ahead of time.
– All communication will be done via email/phone/text.
– I will text upon arrival instead of approaching your door.
– We’ll meet outside, where I’ll be wearing a mask and remain 6 feet away at all times.
– I will pose you and your family with my words only.
– And the results will be lovely lifelong treasured memories.
