Stella means Star in Latin, and this little newborn baby girl was definitely a star for her session. Perfect in every pose and every color , she rocked her photo shoot like a professional model. Jennifer warned me ahead of time that little Stella was a bit jaundiced but that is not a problem when you an expert in Photoshop. I can’t stress enough how important it is to choose a newborn photographer who is not only trained in baby posing and baby safety, but also one who knows all the technical aspects of photo editing. Babies come into this world with jaundice, scratches, baby acne etc and knowing how to correctly remove it and make it look natural, takes a lot of skill and practice. Something to keep in mind when selecting your newborn photographer for sure.
Jennifer, Stella’s mommy requested pink ad creams for her sets ups, since Stella’s nursery was feminine and sweet in design. Often times I will put a specific color on the baby , be it a wrap or a headband, and it just ‘fits’. This was a deal with mauve…as soon as I wrapped Stella in that color , her mommy and daddy gasped…she looks simply gorgeous! You can judge for yourself looking at the photos below.
Since, as mentioned before, Stella means a star, I’ve decided to create one set up incorporating some gold stars I’ve had. Jennifer loved the idea and I think the image came out beautifully. Stella looked so peaceful wrapped up in one of my favorite wraps. I wish my prop vendors would make those wraps and hats in adult sizes sometimes, they just feel so soft and luxurious.
This newborn baby girl’s session went flawless and we were done in less then 2 hours. During the session I do move quickly to ensure that the baby is asleep for the duration of the photo shoot. I also keep in mind that both mommy and daddy are usually tired and don’t want to spend 4 hours looking at me posing their baby. I try to make the whole experience as enjoyable as I possibly can.
