Day 10 ~ Foster

Newborn photography has always been something I enjoyed.  After all, the reason I began taking pictures in the first place was because I had just given birth to my first son.  I wanted to be able to capture everything, so I picked up my first camera.  My style has changed drastically since those first shots.  I have been desperately trying to find my style of newborn photography.  I love the little props that other photographers use, but honestly, they stress me out.  I love the simplicity of a baby.  I feel like for me, the props become the focus, and the little one fades.  In all actuality, the focus should be the tiny human (for my Grey’s fans out there).  I found a breakout session on Clickin Moms by Bethany Backhus a few weeks ago.  Finally I have found someone else that thinks the same way I do.  The baby should be the focus!  She only uses black and white backdrops and swaddles.  If you check out her images, you will see babies; lots of beautiful babies, without all of the superfluous props.

After completing the online breakout session, I had the courage to step out and back away from the newborn props.  I reached out to my Facebook friends to find some newborn models to put this concept to the test.  Guess what?  I love the images I have produced.  I am absolutely re-energized to continue newborn photography!
