I love in-home newborn lifestyle sessions. Each one is always unique–no two sessions can ever really look or feel the same. Lighting is different, decor..everything about them is individual to each family. For me as a visiual artist this is so important. To do the same thing over and over leaves me restless and unsatsified. I love the challenge of finding the perfect nooks and crannies throughout my clients’ homes to get the best light, creating multiple vignettes and thus more variety to their image galleries.
This brings the subject to light….
Light is the single most important factor for making a photograph. Being a natural light photographer this plays heavily into when and where I can shoot. I will always inquire about the available light in a client’s home before our scheduled session, especially on days that are dark and dreary. Please keep in mind that it is better to have ample light to work in than force a shoot when the light is lacking. Over the years I’ve learned to embrace the shadows and play in the pockets of light instead of cranking my ISO to keep with the light and airy look. There is something to be said about moody images. The contrast between the light and dark really evokes emotion and visual interest. You can see from this session how vastly different the light is from the master to the nursery but I love how having light filled images mixed with some darker, moodier images gave my client a really nice balance in variety.
