Behind the Scenes of Newborn Photography | Northern VA Baby Photographer
Most clients don’t realize that our newborn photography work in the Lowes Island, VA & Herndon, VA area keeps us busy even when we aren’t shooting a session. Professional photography is about more than just taking pictures.
To create beautiful, fine art photography, a lot of work and thought go into prepping for your newborn’s portrait session. We don’t want to waste your time once you’ve arrived, so there is a fair amount of advanced preparation that we need to do including equipment and inventory checks. Of course, there is a lot that must wait until the actual session, but there are a lot of things we can do before you even arrive, including choosing backdrops and floors, pulling props, and setting up the space especially for your session. Which lights will we use? Which lenses will get the shots we know you want? Knowing and choosing all of this before the session even begins means the end result will be a portrait you’re proud to display and to show to your children and their children.
Custom photography means personalized photography. We need to prepare for each session and put a lot of thought into how the session will transpire from our end as your Northern Virginia photographers. We like to tailor the session to the client. It isn’t cookie-cutter photography; it never is for us. Shooting a maternity portrait in our studio isn’t the same as doing a family session with three children in our private portrait park, for example. They are vastly different, and we need to prep for each one differently. We plan ahead of each session and plan accordingly.
Some days we spend hours and hours editing. We can sometimes put as many hours into editing as we do into prepping and taking pictures. It’s virtually impossible to take the perfect picture out in the field. That’s where post-production editing comes into play. The more experienced and skilled the photographer, the better they are in post-production. It’s where we fine tune the pictures to perfect them and turn them into what the client is expecting from us.
As you can see, fine art photography is about more than just shooting baby pictures! There’s a process involving hours of work away from the camera. If you would like to work with a dedicated mother and daughter team specializing in family and newborn photography in the Lowes Island, VA & Herndon, VA area, just give us a call!
