I don’t like using flash on babies, so having our shoot where there is good natural light is super important. I always encourage clients to come to my home studio for our sessions, but for one reason or another, some clients prefer to have the shoots at their homes. When I showed up at baby Dylan’s home, I was concerned about the lack of natural light because there were a lot of tree in front of their house. Luckily though, the light improved in the other half of their house and we were able to get some great images.
Most of my clients want cute staged baby in baskets type of shots, so it was a nice change of pace doing this more lifestyle shoot by mommy’s request. It was definitely easier in a way since I didn’t have to keep bothering baby waking him up posing him. Baby was happier in mommy’s arms and we were able to finish the entire shoot in two hours.
