Covid-19 changed our world for the first half of 2020. As an Oswego NY Newborn Photographer, I had goals and plans for my studio and clients. I watched them all unravel and shut down as the months of quarantine and social distancing continued. I tried not to get too upset. Every small business owner was feeling the same pain of uncertainty. I started the month of August with a handful of sessions, with only 2 being newborn sessions. But God is good and faithful. By the time I finished August, Bennett was my last newborn session, clocking in at 7 for newborns, and 17 sessions total! This was honestly the busiest month I have ever had in my 14 years of being photographer! I was overwhelmed by the blessings and knowing that God is able to do abundantly more, than I can ask or think! Believe me, this was more than I could comprehend!
Bennett came to see me through a referral. That’s right, another client sent his mama to me prior to his birth. Again, another blessing. Bennett was just 8 days old. The majority of my newborn sessions are scheduled between 5-12 days of birth, so I can capture them at their squishiest and sleepiness moments. This means, moms like Bennett’s gives me a call, knowing that she will have a baby, and schedules his session, so she has a spot saved on my calendar. And it was a good thing too! Because several of my newborns in August were already born and over the 12 days when they booked, and my twins came 5 weeks early so I had to fit them in too! And then, my two newborns due in September decided to be make their earthly entrance at the end of August too!
Bennett’s session was fun to create. He cooperated for wraps, props, and beanbag poses. He even received some sweet love from big brother, Maddox. One of my favorite poses is capturing siblings. It is also the most challenging. I always must take the oldest child’s age into consideration. Toddlers are unpredictable, but Maddox being a little older, I knew that he could hold a wrapped Bennett and we would capture a terrific, wall worthy, portrait. I even had a small portrait of the two boys printed and framed just for Maddox’s bedroom.
