Devon reached out to me early on in her pregnancy about a newborn session. I was thrilled because way back in 2014 when I first started my business, I captured their engagement pictures. I was honored they sought me out to now capture their first baby’s newborn photos. Jenna was awesome for her session and barely made a fuss! I asked Devon some questions about her experience and here is what she had to say:
Please tell me some small details of your birthing process. When did you go into labor? Time of birth? Who all was at the hospital with you?
I went in on December 27th to be induced for medical reasons. Jenna was born two days later via c-section at 4:50pm. My husband David was with me when she was born, but my mom And in-laws where at the hospital with us.
What was the first thing you thought when you saw your baby for the first time?
I couldn’t believe how alert she was! As soon as the nurse put Jenna on my chest We Locke’s eyes and it was the most incredible feeling ever. She was her safely and she was wide awake and looked right at me.
What was your favorite part about our session together?
I loved how sweet Angie was with Jenna. She worked with whatever Jenna was willing to give her. She captured all of the sweetness of her newborn smirks and was so patient.
Do you have a favorite image from your session? Was there any favorite setups or props used?
My favorite image is the naked one that is focused on Jenna’s face. She was on the beanbag with a coral headband on. My favorite prop was the tiny wooden drawer.
How did you prepare for our photo shoot? How was your experience? Were you nervous or worried before? How did it turn out?
We prepared by following Angie’s instructions, we absolutely loved our experience, because we had worked with Angie before we weren’t nervous or worried at all. We just love how all of the images turned out!
What would be your advice to someone getting newborn photographs taken?
Do it! After getting our photos done, I think it was so worth the price! We’ll cherish these images forever!
Now, enjoy some favorites from Jenna’s session!
