I wanted to do a shoot which involved totally natural baby photos. No posing, no direction. Just simply documenting. A baby, his mother, their home.
My reason for this… Everyone wants baby pictures. And although super cute, they are set up and contrived. I want real life.
So I spent a couple of hours with Emmanuel & Emma. Simply 0bserving and letting them go about their day to day life. This really is such a special time, that passes so quickly, it is worth capturing those first expressions of individuality.
When you think about it, it seems so strange that the background of a kitchen, or a lounge full of toys could be considered inappropriate or ‘less clean’ than a backdrop or a wall. But really, why not be just how it is? After all, is this not the point of baby photos? To document those memories?
Don’t get me wrong. I love portraits on a background, using creative lighting. But let us remember the point of being individuals. Lets involve the things which make us different. Taste, culture, location. The list is endless. So here is a cheers to keepin it real.
2 hour sessions are just $325. This can be all natural, all set up, or we can mix it up a bit. The price includes 30 hi-res images on a disc and I will also throw in a flush mounted brag book
