Being a mom myself, I completely understand what it's like to round up your family, coordinate outfits, make sure everyone stays clean and ready for photos and get Dad on-board ALL WHILE you have to get yourself ready. Take a breath and know that you're not alone! Check out these sayings that I hear at almost every session:
- My child just bumped/scratched themself, can you photoshop that out?
Most of the time, yes, I can. I usually will edit it out of one photo so that you can see what the others will look like but I won't adjust the other photos until after your session premier.
- There's no way my child cooperated, you probably didn't even get one good photo!
I promise, I will keep shooting until I know we have good photos for you to choose from. You'd be surprised at how many times moms cry happy tears because they had no idea their child even smiled during the session! Sometimes I also have the kiddos come with me on a small adventure to give mom a break and we can get some "secret" photos for mom and dad. I have my ways ;)
- I just had a baby and haven't lost my baby weight.
It's all about the angles and cropping! Also, especially at newborn sessions, you JUST had a baby! I make sure that your photos capture those moments with your precious, new little one.
Have no fear! This is why I do what I do. I love helping moms get those photos they're going to cherish forever. I'm here to help you!
