Newborn photos with pets
More and more I get asked if I can photograph newborn baby with the family pet. Very often families start with pets and baby arrives at later stage. I’m very very cautious about how to create these type of photos. I certainly can do it, but most likely it would be a composite image. This means I would photograph your pet separately from baby, and bring the two images together through a little computerized magic. I always ask million questions before you bring your pet into the studio. You must remember we are dealing with an animal and it’s impossible for them to know what is happening and cooperate happily with all our photographic plans! Also, baby is new addition to the family and they need some time to get used this new little presence as well.
During this particular session I had ‘full house’. I had two siblings and two pets to incorporate into the photos. Can you imagine the craziness that ensued? All I can say is wow. Two active and very giggly brothers which made me laugh every time. This time, the pets were actually the easy part!
So you will see a full session with all types of images. A bit large gallery for newborn one, but it should give you an idea of possibilities. You’ll see loads of expressions and smiles. Pet images were composites, with the baby was photographed separately. But you’d never know it, looking at the photos!
And always, my studio is all about NEWBORN SAFETY.
