New Family

New Family

f/4.5, 1/80, ISO-320, 37mm

The good part about taking photos of newborns is that it’s pretty much impossible to not get a good one. Babies are insufferably cute even when they’re crying (though I imagine it’s much more cute in a still photograph than in real life at two in the morning for the 15th night in a row).

When I was given my first newborn assignment, I wanted to to capture not just the child, but the sense of a loving family. When Dad starting feeding their girl to help stop her from fussing for the camera, and Mom was there to stroke her head, I quickly turned the light around and got this lovely closeup.

    What a beautiful moment captured! Love how the father was holding the bottle to feed her and how the little baby girl was holding her mommy’s finger. Very touching! Makes me want to hug my little ones more tighter. Thank you for the beautiful post!

    This great closeup provides viewers with a wonderful intimacy/connection to both the baby and the woman AJ. Lovely.

      Thank you Rick! It’s a beautiful family and I hope I’m doing them justice!
