I had the joy of taking Deborah’s newborn photos when she was 9 days old. We scheduled it for late afternoon, and we again used the master bedroom which we also used for Benjamin’s.
Deborah definitely gave some challenges, but with newborn photos, one learns to adapt and stretch their creativity. She didn’t sleep much, and she didn’t naturally curl into a newborn position.
We know some of you love photography, and newborn photos are a way to bless families with lasting memories. To get ideas and tips, you can Google it. You’ll find ideas from what kinds of props (you really can do with just a few items) to lighting to posing. After that, practice, practice, and practice.
I used my Nikon D800 with two lenses: Tamron f2.8 28-75mm lens and my Nikon f1.4 50mm. I didn’t use a flash.

even the children which should be born;
who should arise and declare them to their children.”
