4 Things You May Not Know
1. Newborn photos are captured under 2 weeks of age usually. Babies sleep and curl up in those sweet poses best at this age.
2. It is usually very warm in the room or house where the baby is being photographed. Candice had us turn the heat up in the studio and she also used a space heater to keep Jack warm and comfy. She told me that her motto is “If we are comfortable, then the baby probably is not!” Most poses are done naked and baby is happiest warm and snuggly.
3.Some shots you see are Photoshopped for baby’s safety. The classic “froggy pose” or “hands under the chin” pose are 2 images composited together in Photoshop. A hand is on baby at all times in this particular shot. Baby does not pose like this on his or her own.
4. Newborn shoots take time and lots of patience! Most shoots last around 3-4 hours if baby cooperates the entire time. It’s not just sticking the baby in a basket and snapping a picture. You have to be patient for baby to completely relax in the poses.

Meet the Photog: Candice
My name is Candice. I am 25 years young and there is just something so special to me about capturing a moment on camera and then seeing the smile that it creates on my client’s face! I absolutely adore working with babies and children. My specialty is newborns I would say! I always wanted to have a job when I grew up where I could be around newborns and babies all the time. Now I get to live that dream! I get to play with them and create memories that their families will never forget. I have been known as the baby whisperer. Candice’s Photo By: www.bethanyveach.com.
