Sterling | 9 days old http://ellaroseportraitarts.zenfolio.com/blog/2017/4/sterling-9-days-old This sweet little girl at 9 days old

was a perfect model for the newborn class I was teaching.

I have never thought about teaching before but I have had a few request so I decided to go for it.

Teaching is very intimidating and my nerves go about 90 mph

You feel so honored that someone wants to learn from you but in the same moment you feel so unworthy and not good enough.

Everyday I struggle to be better than I was yesterday and I probably put too much pressure on myself

but I am competing with photographers all over

who are so much cheaper.

Photographers who are just doing it as a side job or who have families with two incomes.

So I have put so much thought into my business and I am raising a family on my own

and to feel like I am worth every penny 

I strive so hard to be the best

to learn from photographers who are world renowned artist

and bring that beautiful craft here to small town.

So when someone wants to learn from me, I want to believe that I am starting to make a difference.

I dont want to be a photographer who just takes your babies photos, anyone can take a photo, I want to create something beautiful and artful.

Baby as Art!

Emerson | 5 days old http://ellaroseportraitarts.zenfolio.com/blog/2017/2/emerson-5-days-old This beautiful little girl came to the studio at 5 days old.

I loved the colors Mom had picked out for her room and knew this session was going to be so bright and colorful.

Emerson did such a wonderful job despite the little tummy ache she had.

She gave us some very beautiful smiles.

When babies come in with tummy aches, you really don't know until you start posing them. 

They tend to be very sensitive to being on their tummy so you have to make adjustments to the whole session

and do what baby feels most comfortable doing.

Once we made the adjustments she did amazing.

So if you are a new photographer shooting newborns and come across a baby that doesnt settle,

the most important thing is to stay very calm and relaxed and keep Mom informed about what is going on

so Mom can stay calm and relaxed.

All babies are NOT the same and that is ok. It happens quite often.

It is the Newborn photographer's job to make sure you only do what baby feels comfortable doing

and not pushing baby to pose on a prop just so you can get a shot to show off on Facebook.

This is why choosing a photographer who specializes in newborns is highly important.

The decision should be more important than choosing a wedding photographer.

You pay thousands of dollars choosing the right wedding photographer to capture your special day,

well that same care should go into choosing a newborn photographer.

You are putting the most precious life in someone else's hands.

This is not where you should save a buck.

This is the most beautiful investment you will ever make <3

 

Thank you so much to Mom for letting me be Emerson's photographer.
