Why Offer Newborn Photography? - Ottawa Family & Newborn Photographer
There are many excellent professional newborn photographers in Ottawa, so would adding this service even be worth it? I think so. Well. right off the bat I knew that I could bring something different to the table. So I decided to create a session that allows families to stay home, yes, even for the lightly posed portraits. That’s one session, that produces not only documentary & lifestyle newborn images, but also wrapped and posed portraits. So it’s similar to having studio images, but in your own home.
The newborn stage is so very brief, it just makes sense to offer to capture it on “film”, so to speak. Not mention, newborns bring with them so much promise, it’s a strong feeling. Its not even a feeling it’s more of a sense. It’s somewhat spiritual even. If I felt this way about newborns, why was I not shooting them to begin with?
From a business perspective, it’s logical. Babies aren’t seasonal, they’re born year-round. So to ensure a steady flow of clients year-round, this made sense.
From a creative perspective, I will be able to use my vintage manual lens more, which I love, and newborn posing will allow me to do that since newborns stay in one place! In addition to that, it's all with that glorious natural light.
There are a lot of challenges that come with newborn photography too, but I feel that those are all worth it in the end, if my work involves taking a moment to smell a newborn’s head.
On that note, be forewarned, I will smell your precious baby’s head.
Here are the types of images you can expect during your sessions.
Cheers, everyone. Happy Canada Day!!!
