Here’s a sneak peek from one of my recent sessions.
She had me at hello. Lilyana was a dreamy seven-day newborn to photograph…literally! Just look at her angelic face, creamy skin, and perfect features that I had almost the full session to capture while she slept. And her complexion was so flawless that it required zero Photoshop. I fell in love with her when I got to hold and rock her to sleep. Her parents were very comfortable with the whole new baby experience and were simply wonderful to work with. It will be fun to see this little beauty as she gets bigger. Headband courtesy of Sun Sprinkles. Lilyana’s parents left the sweetest review on Yelp:
“My new growing family and I had our first professional photo session with Angela. Now, we’ve only seen the blog she posed about the shoot but after seeing the first few photos, I had to share our experience so far! From the minute we showed up, we felt 100% comfortable with Angela. She is friendly, funny, and professional. She coached us through the whole shoot and knew exactly how to position us and our newborn to capture exactly what she wanted. She is extremely creative, and created moments better than I could have ever asked for. She definitely has exceeded all of my expectations. We would recommend her to anyone wanting newborn, wedding, family portraits, senior portraits, and any of your photography needs! I can’t wait to see the rest of our photos and the birth announcements she is creating for me. We will definitely be bringing our family back to Angela Lang for years to come!”
You may be wondering when is the best time to bring your baby in for his/her newborn session. The quintessential age for these kind of images is 5-10 days old. If you are pregnant now and in your third trimester, it’s fine to make an appointment based on your due date (though it’s somewhat of a moving target). Why is this age better than later? Most newborns get baby acne around week 3 and it can be a light to extreme and can last a short time or a couple of months. Also, babies in their first 2 weeks of life are still transitioning sleep-wise from being in the womb, so it’s easier to move them around without waking.
