Something I’ve been wanting to do more of are Kauai in-home newborn sessions. There’s a sacredness that comes from shooting in a client’s home, or personal space. They’re allowing you into the place where they are living out their lives, with all the good and bad moments that make up a life.
So coming into this beautiful space, with this gorgeous newborn, was a very special experience. I already loved them. He’s our dentist, and I shot photos of the dental office, even before I shot their maternity photos. I love kind, down-to-earth people, and these two are definitely all of those things.
I explained that when I do newborn sessions, it’s not the super posed, on a beanbag, froggy posed shots. Above all, it’s mama, baby and daddy, together, (or whatever is the unique family makeup). Baby sleeps, nurses, cries, snuggles and whatever else they want to do. And I’m just there documenting it. I do direct and pose a little bit, but it’s a very loose session, because the focus is more on moments.
I’d love to chat about doing your own Kauai in-home newborn photo session! firstname.lastname@example.org
