Denver Newborn Portraits | Newborn portraits are beautiful images that are designed to capture the details of your baby: their eye lashes, toes, lips, facial expressions, and even eye color (if they’re awake). They showcase the tiniest features and enormity of love.
Baby Arden was one week old when he came to visit me. I’ve met his parents through mutual friends that live in Florida. My husband and I met up with them at a brewery when mom was pregnant with their first baby a couple years ago. So when their second baby came around I was super honored to be their photographer. Dad grabbed a beer, mom watched from her chair, and older sister played outside in the backyard for a bit. Arden was super sweet, sleepy, and let me do almost every pose. For a brief moment he was awake but that didn’t last long. I am glad I got an open-eyed shot. Those are some of my favorite images. And since dad is a big Denver Broncos fan (as am I) I threw in a little blue and orange theme for a few images.
When parents come into my studio I want them to feel just as comfortable as the baby. They are welcome to sit in the lounge chairs, eat chocolate, help themselves to water, La Croix, and if a dad (or mom) wants a beer I usually have them available (no promises!). When mom is relaxed the baby tends to sense that and can be more relaxed as well. Because of all the handling the baby may require an extra feeding or two, which is normal when taking newborn portraits.
When the baby is fully fed and ready for pictures, I will take the baby and start my posing. This is where mom is invited to simply sit back, enjoy the show, or even doze off if she feels like it. As I work through all my posing, mom and dad are welcome to suggest any colors or props they see that they would like me to use. I cannot always guarantee to use everything but I will try.
In Denver newborn portraits are my specialty. I have traveled and done in-home sessions before and I love that too. This fall I am going to Hawaii for a maternity session, which I am excited about! For information on scheduling your portrait session please visit my pricing pages.
