I love being a newborn photographer.

Who wouldn’t love getting to cuddle sweet babies in their first few days of life?  

Well, it’s not for the faint of heart let me tell you!  Being a newborn photographer is actually not as glamorous as you’d think!  Yes, you get to cuddle those sweet little darlings - and that truly is awesome!  BUT - you also getting peed, pooped and thrown up on ALL. THE. TIME.  And that’s OK.  That’s part of babies.  And they cry.  Seriously, I’ve always wondered how something so small and sweet could make so much noise!

All of the above happens at most every newborn session.  It’s expected, and thankfully everything is washable ;)  

Before each newborn session, parents are sent a set of requested guidelines for them to follow before the session to help ensure a happy, sleepy baby with a full belly.  When parents follow these guidelines, like sweet Rosemary’s mommy & daddy did, newborn sessions are extra successful.

I absolutely love photographing babies on neutral blankets without a lot of adornment, props, or anything else that could take the focus away from baby.  Newborn portraits are a way to preserve your baby’s uniqueness and sweet little baby features - it all goes by in the blink of an eye, but pictures last forever.  With natural posing, you can remember how your newborn loved to be all cuddled up when sleeping, or how she always slept with her arms above her head.  How baby’s hair curled or stood up, or how baby always tucked in her little bottom lip.  Every detail, down to baby’s tiny little eyelashes.

And where should these photographic memories live?  On a flash drive thrown in a drawer?  Shared only on Facebook and Instagram?  NO!!  kDarling Photography is pleased to announce that prints, canvases, albums and more can now be part of your customized newborn photography package!  These heirloom quality pieces will be treasured by you, mom & dad, baby, and for generations to come!
