There’s nothing sweeter than snuggling a life that’s just a few days old. There’s no greater honor than when a new mother trusts me enough to hand off her tiny baby to me. My studio is often one of the first outings they make and I’m often one of the first people to hold them and one of the first (other than mommy) to rock / shoosh them to sleep. I do not take this privilege lightly. I have several safety protocols – from sanitizing our home studio to protection from other children and I have also taken classes on safely handling newborns while posing them. I’ve now shot over 100 precious newborns – but each one is extremely special to me. While I’m with you – I promise to treat them as I would my own.
