Welcome to the world, Nora Grace! Nora is the newest member of our family, and I was so excited to meet her and be her newborn photographer. My niece, Melina, lives in Tampa, Florida. I was more than happy to travelled there from Atlanta for the baby’s first professional photos. Nora’s theme for the nursery is pink, gray, cream and elephants; so I brought those colors with me for her pictures.
I photographed my baby niece when she was 16 days old. I was happy to have my sister Mayra (grandmother or Mimi) as my assistant. When photographing newborns, I prefer to do it between 7-21 days. Since we had pretty window light, I took most of the pictures using natural light. This was a first for me, as I use artificial light when photographing newborns.
Since I was also visiting with them, we had a more “relaxed”, longer photo session and waited to take pictures while she slept, which allowed us to capture some beautiful curled, sleepy poses.
I was excited to capture three generations of beautiful women – no doubt an image that baby Nora will cherish forever. Oh, what would I give to have a picture with my mom and grandmother!
It was such an honor for me to welcome and photograph the newest member of our family. Congratulations Melina and Jacob, you have such a beautiful baby girl. You know Mimi and Papi are sending their blessings from Heaven!
to document these fleeting moments and have them last forever in your images. Remember, the ideal time to book is a few months before your baby is born.
