A Behind-the-Scenes Peek: Newborn Photographer in Action
In any line of work, it’s always more rewarding if you actually enjoy what you do. And when it comes to newborn photography, it’s not only vital to enjoy your art as a photographer, but it’s important to enjoy newborn babies, too. Typically, a newborn session takes a lot longer than say, a baby or maternity session—often three times as long. That’s a lot of time to spend with a little baby, and it’s a genuine love for these little treasures that carries you through the session. Here’s a collage of me in action:

While posing a newborn baby requires skills that can be learnt, and equipment and props that can be purchased, a genuine love for newborns is innate. Soothing and cuddling is a big part of every session. Having had children of your own is certainly a big plus.
Here’s a modern-day tale that speaks volumes: A teenager, tired of having to read to her baby sister, thought she came up with an ingenious idea. She taped her sister’s favourite stories onto a tape recorder and proudly announced: “I’ve taped all your favourite stories … now you can listen to them anytime. Isn’t that just great!”
The little sister, completely under-whelmed, looked at the tape recorder and replied candidly: “No. It hasn’t got a lap!”
Smart kid! Children can sense insincerity.
A camera is just a camera. A photo session is just a photo session. However, with a little tenderness, thoughtfulness and patience, a camera becomes a magic wand, and a photo session is transformed into an enchanting few hours.
