Last week we got to hang out with little Jeremiah! His awesome mom is another St. Louis photographer so it was great to be able to give her a break from being behind the camera all the time and do some work for her! And he couldn’t have been a more perfect subject! Curly and tiny and sleepy… just how we like them!
We’ve been asked a lot recently if we’re ever planning on doing a newborn workshop for other photographers and the answer, right now, is no. And one of the main reasons is because we feel REALLY strongly that you can’t do newborn photography justice if you are alone. To get babies into these poses and not make mom or dad help out when they should be relaxing, we work together! One of us is always shooting and the other one is always posing. For the shot above Kim was right next to him the entire time with a paci, the heater and the sound machine right next to her!
I was ready and as soon as she stepped away and yanked that paci out I clicked!
He woke up for one second and we were able to capture his beautiful eyes! Isn’t he gorgeous?
Thanks to Raquita and Jerry for hanging out with us and a special thanks to Jerry who DURING the session had to help me unclog the toilet upstairs! HA! Some kid used too much toilet paper and he saved the day for me! If you want to see Raquita’s work go HERE! Thanks again you guys, it was a blast!
Thank you so much! They are amazing!
Jerry, I swear – you are the only photogs he’s talked about as much as he talks about me… and yes it was a great thing to sit back and watch like a mom rather than being the photog for once, well twice since I had his birth story done as well.
THANK YOU, they are wonderful, my fave is the eyes open, he’s got Jerrys eyes…
SO GORGEOUS!!!!!! I mean, look at his parents…. he was destined for perfection! <3
OMG!! Jeremiah is a sleeping beauty. He looks so handsome and peaceful!
The pics are just awesome. When my next grandbaby gets here he/she is really going to have a newborn session. Great job
Oh my sweet Lord…what a gorgeous baby!!
Eyes open, in the grain bin, on the quilt in the doll bed, sleeping with the grey shaggy thing…poor parents having to make the decision about which ones to get!!
absolutely adorable………….I love all of them,
I know they will have a hard time selecting the best pose
What a little doll! Precious! You two find the greatest props!! Love the lips.
He is so precious!! Love the macro shot, those big lips are so so adorable!
It’s totally absurd to think you need 2 photographers to successfully photograph newborns. There are many many photographers who do all the posing and shooting and do it to perfection. In my opinion, that is even more impressive.
as a photographer who shoots newborns solo, usually with mom and dad near by for security – you can do it alone, and well for that matter – but as a mom who felt comfortable letting my kid be 10-15 feet away with a photographer who has parenting experience (hi Kims 7 kids)i will say it was nice to not have to be elbow deep in the session… so is it necessary no but if i could find the right partner i would do it too…
I am in love with this sweet session…. so beautifully captured! He is just precious!
