I use to be so scared to schedule family photography sessions (and especially scared to schedule newborn photography sessions) outside of the 'golden hour' (1 hour before sunset), I would explain to clients that I don't have equipment to deal with the harsh south florida lighting, etc... and I have to say that it is thanks to my two kids over the last year and a half, I have been docmenting Kate and Emma's days, in the middle of any kind of light, no light, too much mid-day light, and now its all I do.
I ain't afraid of no harsh south florida sun.
It is amazing how my own girls have had such a huge impact on my life as a photographer :)
When these amazing moms asked if morning is ok because that's when their little man is happiest, I was like yeah of course!
Baby photography is one of my favorites!!! But I always always insist that it has to be family portaits... even though all my families know that my work has been drifting into documentary photography sessions / photojournalism, and I do less and less portraiture and posing these days and allow my families to really spend quality time with their littles during my photoshoots.
I think that can be tough to do as a beach photographer, especially when families are not regular beach goers. So I have gotten really creative with looking for new locations as a south florida newborn photographer, and family photographer. A few days ago I ventured out with this amazing little family of three into a local nature trail...
This family means so much to me. I was their birth photographer.
I was with them for.... over 20 hours of labor, I love these two so so dearly and it felt crazy and amazing to see Easton after 7 months...
he is the sweetest, chunkiest, happiest little boy!!!
I hope you enjoy their 7 month baby boy family photographic pictures session in Delray Beach as much as I did!
Feel free to head on over to my birth stories photography page to see Easton's birthing day with Paulina Splechta Photography.
