Maternity photography session in San Francisco - {into the woods}

Oh, I cannot wait because today this gorgeous mama is bringing her surprise little boy into the studio. With an age gap of 6 years, big sister is such a wonderful age to pose with her new buddy. We won't head outside today at all because it's so rainy but we did get this beautiful sunny day in San Francisco's Golden Gate park to work with a few weeks ago. This family has so much love for each other - I enjoyed the witnessing the snuggles from this curly-q'ed 6 year old the most. You can tell she's going to be a great little helper.

How it's done - The secret to capturing newborn portraits

Often, I try to explain to clients in an email what to expect for their session. How many poses we can do, how warm the house should be and how long the session will take are all common questions they may have. Answers are: about 35 different portraits with around 10 different setups and then parents and baby portraits, around 80 degrees, and 5 hours start to finish (this includes me bringing my props and setting up a "mini studio" in their home). Newborn photography requires a special touch, lots of knowledge and experience and immense patience (poses can take 20 minutes each). Finally, there is a video that really shows what a newborn session looks like! {log into FB to see}
