This morning I had the chance to meet little Madisyn Skye for a newborn shoot. Isn’t she precious?
Madisyn’s parents were the winners of one of my newborn photo sessions that I gave away last month.
Madisyn was a fun challenge to photo & I learned a few things from her like:
- When dealing with nude babies, keep plenty absorbent towels nearby
- Redos are not allowed
- The baby runs the show
- Keep your room as warm as possible
The sessions was planned for two hours but by the time it was over, it was three hours as I was on Madisyn’s schedule. It was all good & I enjoyed rocking her to sleep, which was totally not part of my deal ;)
I have to credit my photographer friends Kristen Caldwell & Maya Henderson for helping pull up the strength & nerve to a) offer this contest & b) actually pull it off. Thanks so much for the encouragement & creative ideas!
Over the next few days, I’ll be working on Madison’s photos & will post a few more so you can marvel at my amazing skills.
