My first niece of 2021. Yes, that means I have more than one niece arriving this year. Of course, I hate to disappoint people, Taiga was my first niece born this year, with 2 more following closely behind, and the year is still young.

 Taiga was a lot of fun to pose. Between her parent poses, family and sibling poses, I was able to capture so many portraits plus the individual newborn poses on props and the beanbag.

One of my goals during Taiga’s session was to create a Russian Doll set up. My three daughters’ each own their own set of different colors. It took several attempts to match up the colors, but eventually I matched the colors up and knitted both wraps and bonnets of each color. I then photographed the dolls several times, taking into consideration lighting, placement and rescaling a newborn to the dolls’ size for the image. As a personal photography project, this was a fun way to experiment and build on my photography skills.

When booking your newborn photography session before birth, there is always a question of “When will we do it?” As an expectant mama, you may be planning on having your baby naturally with no predetermined date of when your baby will arrive. That leaves room for much uncertainly when booking your newborn session. But that is ok. When you book your newborn session with me, before your baby’s birth, I will add you to my calendar and will not overbook for the week that you are expecting. Within two days after giving birth (while resting in the hospital or at home) shoot me a message of your blessed arrival. From there, we will schedule a date for your newborn’s photography session. Newborns are best posed and photographed within 5- 14 days of birth, so it is crucial to have your newborn photographer booked well before your baby arrives.
