How I made my start in a newborn photography / Baby Emilia Newborn Session in Santa Clarita, CA
My story about starting in photography is in All About Me site, but I want to share how I made my start in newborn photography. I always wanted to photograph babies but had no experience nor portfolio, and an amazing thing had happened: two of my friends and neighbors got pregnant 6 months apart. I remember my first newborn session as if it had happened today. Baby Lila was a month old and didn’t want to sleep at all. She was looking at me with her big and curious eyes and was really interested in what I was doing. I didn’t understand much what I was really doing even after watching hours of online newborn photography classes. When it was time for Lila's potty and she left it on my blanket, my friend asked me if I really wanted to do newborn photography. The soiled blanket didn’t discourage me. My answer was “yes”. My second baby was Samantha. She was also a one month old. I prepared this session thoroughly. If my first session with Lila lasted two hours ( this is how much time I had), Samantha’s session lasted two days for six hours each. Thanks to my friend, Samantha's patient mom, I got a lot of practice. Right now, both girls are 5 years old and, thanks to them, newborn photography become a big part of my life and my career.
