Baby J | Norman Newborn Photography
Baby J was so sleepy for his shoot! As a Norman newborn photographer, I never know what I’m in for; a sleepy baby or an alert baby that will take some convincing that his parents will appreciate sleepy pictures and he should take a nap lol! No matter what, my clients have been amazingly patient and understanding as I work with their new bundle of joy. I am so grateful for this! The second photo here shows a pose that is generally loved by all babies. It goes by many names, like “booty up/bum up”, “prone”, and “butt-in-the-air”. The side-lying pose seen here is also a “crowd-pleaser” for my littlest clients 🙂
To ensure my clients have the best experience, I also provide preparation tips for the morning of their newborn shoot. I like to put parents at ease during their session by staying calm, and also trying things like swaddled poses if Baby just isn’t having it. I am even open to re-scheduling in extreme circumstances. I have to strike a balance between making sure I provide quality photos for my clients while not pushing Baby beyond his limits for that particular day. I’m so blessed to have had so many babies to hone my baby-whispering skills over the last 6 years! My clients are happy with the final product and that makes me happy.
Now on to the good part! Please enjoy some sweet, snuggly newborn pictures…
