More like… Fresh 15. Meet Michael, 15 hours new.
My very first hospital newborn session. This day was so special, I can’t wait to take on more of these!
When you are hired to photograph a brand new babe just hours after they come earth side, you automatically get upgraded to best friend status. I knew how momma was feeling the weeks leading up to giving birth – from how her OB appointments went to when she was finally in labor. I got to be in-the-know & even meet baby before most!
Other than capturing the tiny details of our new human, I was also tasked with capturing the moment Michael met his 3 siblings & they could not have been more excited! I got a work out capturing all of these special moments, but the results speak for themselves – worth it!
One aspect of a hospital session that I was weary about was the lighting situation. I like to work with natural light, but sometimes I am forced to keep the lights on. At least here in this room I had a few small windows to work with, so I took complete advantage when I could.
You may recognize this family as they are my third repeat clients since going live with my business earlier this year! It was such an honor to get the call again from the Amstutz Family & for such an important time in their lives. I will never forget this session.
