Oh, this one was sooo sweet. Laremie arrived here all the way from Dubois, Wyoming to get her picture taken at only 4 days old. Mom and Dad and big bro are troopers. They drove over Teton Pass after her first doc appointment in Jackson. And you won’t believe how good they all looked as well. I swear I was an unshowered mess a few days after birth, so Miss Amanda and crew definitely impressed me.
On a photography side, I’m excited to announce that I have officially switched over to studio lighting for my newborn shoots as well as most other studio shoots. The winters here are long, and although we boast many bluebird days, unfortunately the days that the snow flies are often grey and dreary…not a friend to natural light. For those of you who speak photography, using studio light means getting to shoot at a low ISO and have consistent white balance no matter what it looks like outside. This also means there is more flexibility on the timing of shoots. Most babies do best in the morning, which is why I recommend that for newborn shoots, but it is also because in the winter months with natural light, it wasn’t a possibility to shoot past 3pm or so. I have done my research and lots of testing, and I’m sure you will love the soft, natural look as I enjoy a more consistent light source. Now I can just focus on baby and not worry about the rest!
Now on to the cuteness!
