I’m very lucky to do what I do, to experience a baby’s first few days is an amazing experience to capture. This year I trained with America’s finest newborn photographers Kelley Ryden and Tracy Raver, seeing them work together on a newborn session was amazing and one of the most valuable investments I have made in my business. They had a secret intuition when holding and positioning the baby ready for the newborn photos. Learning new skills for me is always so important, I believe if you don’t learn then you can never develop or push yourself to achieve the best. People often say to me “Why do you need training your photos are great already!” The reason I do, is that I want to be the best and be the best photographer for your baby. Training for me is learning how to create new poses for your baby photos and also how to handle your baby and care for them and their safety throughout the newborn photo session. When I saw Kelley & Tracy work seamlessly together I just knew I had to have assistance when I carry out the sessions to achieve the best. Beth – my wife, now assists me and we are becoming a great team, as she learns and understands the process during the session our intuition is developing, the only problem is she does get broody!
Newborn photography, done right is an art. When your baby is in my care they have my skilled and undivided attention. The babies don’t happen to lay perfectly in cute little positions and they just don’t happen to be wrapped in the finest Alpaca and Cashmere knits and blankets that are sourced from international vendors, unique to me. They do happen to have me as their photographer and the time they are with me all this does happen! Take a look at one cute little fella, here is Oscar at 12 days old.
