Pittsburgh Newborn Portraits | Mary Beth Miller Photography
Here is another sneak peek blog post! Last weekend I photographed another precious newborn baby with his parents! Just a few weeks ago, this Pittsburgh family welcomed their second baby boy into their lives! Baby Bennett was fast asleep when I arrived to their home, so this gave big brother a little time to get to know me before I started taking photos. He is just over two years old so I know having a new baby in the house is quite an adjustment. But he is already such a great brother, he even kissed and held baby Bennett for some photos.
I never try to pose or “bribe” a child into doing something they may not want to do just for a photo. This is usually stressful on the kid, the parents and the photographer. Instead, with some gentle guidance, I prefer to photograph a family naturally doing their own thing. The last thing I want to do is add stress to a family that just had a new baby! My newborn sessions are always very laid back. I like to get photos of the family just relaxing on the couch, in a bedroom or in the nursery together.
Seconds after I took this photo, baby fell asleep in Dad’s arms.
I really enjoy the time I get to spend with these families.
We always chat while I work and by the end of the session I feel like
I was hanging out and photographing friends.
I hope my client’s feel the same way!
I am truly thankful to the families that invite me into their homes to document their lives and their love.
Full blog post, coming soon! I promise!
