Tales of a default LIfestyle newborn photographer....


June 13, 2014babies

Who doesn't love newborn images?? I love looking at them. I love the curled up images of them in cute positions, and baskets and wraps. One of my dearest friends.. Carrie Sandoval ( she designed my logo during her pre-photographer days...yes... I've know her that long...) of www.babyasart.com photographs newborns this way.

What photographer doesn't like this look?

Yes... yes.. I know. My entire brand goes entirely AGAINST this look. I know this. I SHOULD know this.... I've been in business too long to NOT know this. As photographers, we are all drawn to images that make us look twice. Who knows why certain images command our attention. There are so many reasons why certain images make us look twice. One thing I learned in my many years in this business is that...just because I am drawn to certain images, or I like to look at certain images....doesn't mean I should photograph my own subjects that way.

Its all about a personality thing. How do YOU as a photographer approach a photo session? What makes your brain tick? The best images are created when the photographer is inspired to shoot!



The images that I love to look at when I am sitting at my desk.... drinking my favorite latte...and browsing the internet, are not necessarily the images that I need to CAPTURE myself. My brain does not work well with rules, and perfect positions, and conditions that need to be the same every single time.

When I pick up a camera.. Im more inspired by life. Life makes my heart sing when I have a camera in my hand. Why? Well, when I was a stay at home mom, life is what I captured. Life is what brought me into this business....therefore, life is what my eye has been trained to capture!



Once I figured out how to separate what I love to look at vs. what I am able to shoot... was when I was able to ensure successful photo sessions. Gone were the days when I was trying to capture something I simply couldn't. Yes... I know exposure. Yes.. I know how to photoshop. However...how you conduct a photo session is the blue print of the final image. I simply could NOT conduct a session where there was a curled up newborn!



Guess what? Thats ok! Eventhough there is a style of photography that is popular....doesn't mean that you should capture it. Clients are attracted to consistency...... once I learned that... I was happy capturing ALL genre's the way my eye was trained.

So that is why I call myself a DEFAULT lifestyle newborn photographer. I wanted to capture the curled up newborn in basket, but couldn't. I didn't hold my head up high and proudly shout from the rooftops that I refused to photograph newborns in the way that all photographers do... I just couldn't do it! :) I simply could not wrap my brain around it!


Until next time,

AW
