Sadie | Newborn

September 28, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

This was our official first new born session! Nick and I were both very excited. We did some research, took notes, and came up with a plan. I had the props and all of the equipment set up ahead of time. However, we were immediately challenged by Sadie.

 
I shot by myself the first day for about an hour and a half and Sadie did very well. No crying, but she did not fall asleep at all. This made it hard for me to position her the way I intended and ended up doing other shots instead. I discovered that it is not easy to make a baby do what you want them to. After looking at the pictures, I was disappointed and asked Mindy if she would be willing to bring Sadie back the next day. Of course, I quickly explained to her that it was nothing she or Sadie did, I simply was not satisfied with the photographs and wanted to give it another shot. Mindy said yes and she came over the next day : )
 
On the second day of shooting, Nick and I worked together. While I positioned Sadie Nick was able to take some practice shots first, and final shots once I moved out of the way. Nick and I took turns taking the pictures we "in visioned." Even though, we still did not get some of the shots we wanted to, we learned that working together made the process a lot smoother. Yet, I think Sadie had had enough experience modeling that she was not too happy on her second day of shooting and I understood completely. We shot for under an hour and at the end of it all, Nick and I were content with the photographs we took. Sadie cooperated as much as she could and I give Mindy a big THANK YOU for coming over twice. I heard Sadie slept well the nights after her sessions : )  
 
At the end of it all, Nick and I recognize that we have a lot to learn about newborns. This was definitely a fun first new born photo session experience!
