Last weekend, we each had a newborn session…one in Dubuque, IA and the other in Des Moines, IA. After our sessions, we were on the phone talking, and we were saying how newborn pictures would be so much easier if both of us were there….one photographs and the other is the assistant. Maybe some day, right? 😉 To all the newborn photographers that have assistants….we’re so jealous! 😉
When we’re photographing newborns, we always need assistance from either the mom or the dad for certain shots. Here’s a great example below. I wanted Baby Nolan’s head to be propped up a little, so I had mom hold his head up by putting her finger against his head (left image). I knew I had to photoshop her hand out, so I had her go to the other side (middle image)….pretty much my main focus was to get a shot of the left side of the basket to replace the hand. Here’s the final image!
