Wilder, Pensacola Newborn photographer

“what happens if the baby will not cooperate during the session?” is one of the most common questions asked by my clients, and one that Wilder’s parents worried about. I’m super patient, and can usually outlast any baby (so far so good and I’ve been photographing newborns since 2007), however, if all the patience in the world wouldn’t work, I would reschedule. I’ve never been in a position where parents didn’t like the pictures. What happens is that you will struggle to decide which picture you won’t regret not buying. As it turned out, Wilder was probably one of the most cooperative newborn to photograph, maybe he loved the nice warm temperature of the studio, or the shusher I use, or the soft textures I wrapped him in, or a combination of it all. In the end, he was a champ, letting me move from one pose to the next, allowing me to fuss with little details to get just the right shot. If you are interested in safeguarding this precious stage of your baby’s life forever, with a nice set of images, remember to contact your photographer early (rule of thumb is that you need to have the session within 2 weeks of the due date), to get in their book. Be sure to check their work and that it is to your liking. Even better, is to meet with them prior to your session, to check out their studio, their prop inventory, the way they do business, discuss your expectations, customize your session… The first thing, however, is to commit to the session and book it! It’s so sad when it’s too late to get all the sweet poses. I’m always up for trying, but there does come a time (and it’s amazing how fast time goes when you just had a baby) when it will be too late to get a lot of the cute images.
So, we are entering the covid quarantine baby boom…. call me, I’ve got a prop addiction (I keep trying to control it, but it is overpowering) and I love to photograph newborns!

I offer a mini newborn session and what I call the “traditional” newborn session. Wilder’s was a traditional session. It’s longer, I do 3 types of photography (digital backgrounds, use of props, beanbag posing), it includes parents and sibling posing, and in the end, you will have beautiful products. The mini session is a lesser investment, shorter in time, only beanbag poses, no parents/sibling poses, and in the end you only get digital files. Both will get you beautiful memories that you will cherish for a lifetime.
