Baby Photoshoot

Hi there! I hope you had a nice weekend! I spent the majority of it outdoors. Really loving the weather in Boston lately. I also spent my Saturday morning taking pictures of the loveliest parents and their sweetest newborn baby girl! Thankfully the weather was beautiful and we were able to get plenty of natural lighting in the loft. (Thank you, Jason, for letting us use your space! It's seriously my favorite!)

I was a bit nervous because this was my first time taking baby pictures, and I wanted to be absolutely positive that everything was safe for the baby. I did my research and ended up learning so much about different techniques and styles photographers use for baby pictures. For instance, it didn't really occur to me that all those cute pictures of babies with their sleepy heads propped up on their hands are actually photoshopped like crazy. Like no duh babies don't have that neck strength yet, so the photographer will hold the baby's head up with their thumb and index finger and then stamp that out later. Photography is something I'm really new to but am adding to my list of things-to-get-better-at. I'm always thankful for friends who give me these awesome opportunities to take pictures of them!

These pictures are really special to me because I got to watch Mama Grace's belly grow since the very beginning of her pregnancy! And now that baby girl is here, she certainly is loved from head to toe--you can see it in these pictures below!

Too much cute I'm gonna die!
