Let me introduce you to little Miss Reagan. This little pumpkin was one of my sweet newborn girls that I photographed in January and she was quite the feisty one as she probably only slept for about 3 minutes in our 3 hour session. But those three minutes produced one of my favorite wide awake newborn shots ever, it’s the one that helped get me published in Lemonade and Lenses as well as Beyond the Wanderlust. This was also one of my first sessions where I was able to use my new studio lighting – I just LOVE my lighting for when I go to a client’s house and they have limited natural light (which is pretty common in the Pacific Northwest in the winter). Have you always wondered about studio lighting during a newborn session?
