Irving Newborn Session

Posted on

Newborn sessions make up less than 1% of my annual shooting volume, but are so radically different from my typical day-to-day shooting responsibilities.

Weddings are great. While they’re meticulously planned to the T, and there’s the expectation of all-eyes-on-you, there’s a raw sense of reality in comparison while shooting documentary-style newborns. It sort of dawned on me today that these are less “newborn” sessions and more “parent sessions.” There’s no doubt who the focus is (and should be) on, however I’ve found significant value in creating a sense of context by making the parents just as much of the documentation as the little one.
