Your Baby as Art
If you follow my work, you probably know by now that I love creating artistic newborn photography in my sessions. Since I was introduced to the magic world of the wool layers, I'm obsessed with the creative freedom and infinite possibilities they allow. I always plan a set using these layers for every newborn session I have. I make sure I get the cute baby poses and closeup details parents ask of their little ones, but I like to leave some time for my creative vision. When mom and dad see the final result of the artistic images using these layers, they stare in awe. Guess what images they order in big canvases?
From Concept To Reality
Creative Process - Using Stand In Baby
It all begins with the phone consultation with the parents, where they tell me what colors they like and how their home and nursery are decorated. I then go back to my props and start selecting the items that will go with their style. Jessie, my StandInBaby posing doll comes really handy here. She helps me envision how my creation will look like in real life, and I can make all the adjustments needed. Here's where my mind is free and creativity happens. By the end of the planning, I can hardly wait for our newborn session!
The Session - Creating Art
During the session, the baby is the boss and I follow their cues to know how to proceed with the session. I adapt my concept to the baby's personality, so the result might vary a little from what I designed first. I always fall in love with the baby's version even more! Sometimes my clients stare at me with disbelief, since some creations look a little bit messy while shooting. But I'm already visualizing what will happen next.
Post Processing - Where the Magic Happens
My creations requiere a lot of work after the session. This is where the magic happens. Sometimes the result is close to perfect straight out of the camera, but most likely I will tweak little details here and there to create stunning images. It is still my creative process and it is still my vision, I just use my skills and technology to enhance the result. At the end of the day, my goal is to provide artistic portraits of your newborn, so you can always admire how beautiful they were when they were born.
The Final Result
Every time I show these images to my clients during their Ordering Appointment, they love them! Showing them the final result of their baby as art is so gratifying. Of course, this is only one image of their gallery full of curly poses, detail closeups, family cuddles and sudden smiles. But it is one image they always include in their orders.
Your newborn baby is art. From their perfect fingers and toes to their unique eyes and smiles. They were created beautifully and flawlessly by you. Let's make some art together with your creation and my imagination. I will love to photograph your newborn baby as art!
