As an Atlanta newborn photographer, during the pandemic, I had to consider how to capture these precious memories while protecting everyone’s health. The solution? Taking the session outside! Meet Leni! This little cutie was born at the height of the pandemic. She was also my first outdoor newborn session. I was really nervous, but ended up loving how her images turned out.
Fortunately, the weather was warm and sunny. It was perfect for taking this little beauty’s photos. Leni was one of those babies who was both awake and asleep for her session. This allowed me to get some photos of her beautiful, big blue eyes as well as some of the more traditional sleepy newborn photos.
How to Prepare for your Atlanta newborn photographer session..
Prior to every newborn session, I email parents a “parent prep guide”. The guide offers very simple tips to help you baby arrive sleepy. Not all babies sleep the entire session. I love getting a variety of asleep an awake photos.
I swaddled Leni while she was awake and while she was asleep. As you can see, both turned out beautifully. And the lush green grass provides a beautiful, vibrant background that doesn’t take any attention away from sweet little Leni.
Bringing this little wire frame bed outdoors and adding a floral wreath crown to Leni’s head made her look even more like the beautifully sleeping angel she was.
Newborn sessions can include parents and siblings if you like. If you want to include siblings, I do them first so that one parent can take the siblings to a nearby park or somewhere else to hang out while we finish up your newborn’s photos. This helps to ensure a quiet, soothing environment for your little one so I get the best pictures in the shortest amount of time.
As an Atlanta newborn photographer, I have lots of cute outfits and props to make newborn’s photos the most beautiful, adorable photos you could dream of. If you have an outfit or prop that has meaning to you or your family that you’d like to include, don’t hesitate to let me know. These photos will be cherished memories for your family and I want to ensure that they’re everything you want.
Whether your baby’s session is nothing but posed photos or a mix of posed and lifestyle photos, they’ll all be stunning shots you won’t be able to resist.
