I was thrilled to open my inbox to find these lovely maternity and newborn photos from Leigh at Fresh Light Photography. I think most moms get to a point in their pregnancy where they can’t remember life not being pregnant and then after the baby arrives you can’t seem to remember being pregnant. These gorgeous photos capture both special feelings perfectly. The little one, Miss Macey couldn’t be cuter, mama and papa couldn’t be prouder and it’s easy to see why I was so thrilled to share these photos. Be sure to check out the fabulous advice from Leigh about hiring a newborn photographer following the photos!
Leigh has great advice for all of us looking for the perfect newborn photographer: “When you are choosing a newborn photographer, make sure you pick someone with lots of experience specifically in newborns. It takes a lot of training and practice to be able to get newborns in all of those yummy, curled up poses, and to do it safely. When you are going though a photographer’s newborn portfolio, looks for babies that look relaxed, comfy, and warm. The goal with newborn photography is to make poses look effortless, like the baby just fell asleep that way. The truth is, it takes a lot to get a baby perfectly curled up, so find a photographer specializes in newborns.”
A big thanks to Leigh for the advice and for sharing her work with us!
