Did you know one of our contributors, Kelly, was expecting?? She was blessed with a beautiful baby boy on Monday. Miles was born Monday the 19th weighing 7lbs 3oz and measuring 18 inches. We are beyond excited for her and her sweet family!! Prior to giving birth she wrote this post asking about new baby photography because she needs YOUR help!
Take a minute to read it and leave a comment giving your new baby photography idea!!
After you do that, head over to her Facebook page, Kelly Garvey Photography, and tell her Congratulations!!!
HI!!! It’s Kelly here :)
So…I am having a baby on Monday, March 19th! I don’t know if this post will be live before or after he is born so my past/ present/ future tense may be off, but that’s okay! I shoot newborns so I am super excited about having a new subject BUT also feeling nervous about being responsible for taking my own newborn pictures. Taking your own personal pictures just seems so different…I want to make sure not to miss anything but don’t know how I will be feeling, what his temperment will be, if he’ll be a good eater, how my three year old will act (ha!) etc.
Now this is where all of you AWESOME CIUAN readers come in!
I’d LOVE your help!
I have a short list of “must have” shots to take but I would love your ideas! I know I am missing lots of important shot ideas :) I wasn’t a photographer right when this guy (Garrett) was born so I am SUPER excited to be able to document Miles from day one! (Big brother below!).
Here’s my (not so thorough) list:
-sibling shots (I have a couple ideas pinned)
-use a new wire crate with some Lowe’s beadboard flooring I bought & hang a “Miles” banner behind him
-for outside in the evening light, use my Coke crates to pose him on top (safely as a composite shot of course!)
-each month with his 1-12 month onesies
-lots of curled up naked shots all over the house & lifestyle with his brothers, dogs, dad & maybe even some with me if I can find the energy to pull out the camera on the tripod & shoot the interval timer feature
-lots of macro (I got a new 105mm macro I am dying to try out)!
Is there anything imperative I must capture of my new baby (in your opinion)? Or any creative/ fun ideas you just feel like sharing? Reply below with a link or a picture of your new baby photography ideas!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!!! XOXO.
