Photographing a newborn often feels like I’m looking at a piece of art. The perfection, nine-and-a-half months in the making, can be viewed and photographed from so many angles (and different types of light). We chose to use a lot of black (instead of white), which casts a fine-art appearance, and draws your eye to the subject. This little baby boy was a real treat. At first he wouldn’t fall asleep, so we took advantage and got a few shots of him playing (with his newly discovered toes). Once he fell asleep, we had his Mommy join the fun and pose along.
