Ben & Hillary Rector asked me to document their new life as a family of 3 shortly after welcoming their beautiful daughter, Jane, into the world. It was an honor to capture this special time in their lives. Having recently become a dad myself I have a new appreciation for the importance of newborn photos. They are only little once!
During a shoot like this, I am obviously focused on photographing the baby, but what I find even more interesting is seeing the parents interact with their new child. Typically, I don’t give a ton of direction but instead, I allow space for them to interact with their child. With this approach, you will be able to find images that are more authentic and true instead of forced and posed. I take this mindset in almost everything I photograph from weddings to commercial shoots. Authenticity always wins!
