I was lucky enough to shoot her entrance into the world at the Birth Care Center in Christiana, PA. So I was overjoyed at the thought of going to do her newborn shoot. When I arrived at the house, little miss Lorelai was wide awake and wanted nothing to do with posing in basket and doing some photos. After being patient with her and mom feeding and feeding her, I was able to capture her in all her beauty. She is an adorable little newborn baby girl. I enjoy doing shoots like this all over Lancaster County, PA. How sweet is the shot in the bonnet? Or how about the headbands that mom made? Mom is quite the seamstress and this family was so nice to work with! I hope to be doing many more family shoots for them in the future.
Taking the time and being patient with the little ones really pays off. Being a newborn photographer is something that takes a lot of patience! Having the experience from the Women’s and Babies Hospital in Lancaster, PA working with new moms and newborns has helped tremendously. I absolutely am grateful at the opportunity to learn and grow as a photographer there.
Being a mother of 3 myself has also helped in understanding the first time mom compared to the 2nd or 3rd and so on child. It is so funny how different you are once you have been through it before. It is very scary and overwhelming being that first time mom and not knowing which advice you should listen to. I know when I left the hospital with my son, Donovan, I was so scared of what was to come.
