Beautiful Newborn Session : Anastasia

Recently I photographed Anastasia, a beautiful baby girl (at just five days old). This was an on-location session, and with that there's always some unknown factors (temperature, noise, space, etc...), but honestly my two-scene setup didn't take up too much floor space, it was plenty warm with the heat cranked up into the high 80's, and my portable speaker was cranking out white-noise, so generally we were good to go.
The first setup used a fabric sweep on a beanbag:

The second setup used a basket and box on faux flooring backgrounds:

One of the uncertainty factors of any newborn session is how sleepy the newborn will be. Typically, newborns like to party all-night and sleep all day, but that's not always the case. Anastasia wasn't as sleepy as we hoped.

So, lots of calming down and soothing techniques were required.

I truly believe that every newborn session needs to include the parents in some way. It's a great way to show the parent's connection and give a sense of scale on how tiny the newborn is.

The great thing about these poses is that either parent can do them.

And most of these poses won't reveal that you're tired from sleepless nights.

Of course the connection from Mother and baby always makes a beautiful image.
