When you are a Seattle newborn photographer you get to meet a lot of families. This family is one of my favorites. They always trust the vision that I have. This is the second baby girls that I have taken portraits of of for this fabulous family. And both experiences on my end were really wonderful, I hope they feel that way even more than I do! So, what makes a family so awesome to work with? Mostly it is as I said before. Trust. When a family trusts you to create beautiful portraits of their newborn it opens a creative window. It is so much more fun to have a color to run with and go from there. I am always so much more happy with sessions like that. Another thing that makes a family a favorite to work with is their avoidance of pinterest. When clients come to me with a laundry list of pinterst ideas I groan inside. Not because I’m not cool with stepping outside of my comfort zone and personal style. It is because there is a flow and natural progress between poses in a newborn photography session. I have taken years to develop the skill of going from one pose to another. When you introduce things that are not part of that flow, or that I don’t have practice doing, I guarantee your session won’t go as smoothly as it would have otherwise. Mostly, the thing that makes a family super awesome to work with, is being relaxed. Reese’s parents are at the studio to celebrate the arrival of a baby. There expectations are that I will do my job, there is no stress or worry. As their Seattle newborn photographer, I recommend a clothing change for mom and dad. We had done so many beautiful delicate pictures in white, pinks and creams. Their black t shirts just wouldn’t do. Fortunately they had brought white shirts. But I had this dress in my studio wardrobe that I knew would look brilliant on Reese’s mom. I knew it would add the perfect touch of romance and girlishness if you will. I am so over the moon happy with Reese’s newborn portraits! I know her parents will be too. Thanks for being awesome clients!
