Photographing babies has its challenges and its rewards. It can be chaotic but the outcome is worth it. My philosophy is time. Don't rush...feed them...keep them warm and let them be. The world is new to them and they too are human beings...not dolls.
I photograph both in my in-home area as well as my clients home. It's best if we talk about lighting and how your home is setup to make sure it works but I will say sometimes it's nice to come into your environment and let you all just 'be'. And other times, it's nice to get out and bring the excitement to me. We chat, figure out clothing and the different looks we can potentially do and how a session will flow.
