Neal Urban Portraits was so excited when this couple contacted for maternity portraits. They had contacting Neal Urban Weddings to photograph their wedding, but we were already booked. We had hoped we would be able to work with this family at some point in the future.
Neal Urban Portraits photographed the maternity session at Sanger Farms and Fort Niagara State Park in Youngstown, NY. After the baby was born, Neal Urban Studio was going to do a family newborn session. These are not the typical newborn portraits. There are no "sleeping baby images" that you see for most newborn sessions. These are hands on with the parents/family. The focus is on the whole family.
Neal Urban Photography had the idea for very formal portraits. Mom sent over a few dresses she had and we matched some flowing material to her dress. Back in the day, you may notice that people did not smile for photos often. That was the idea Neal Urban had for some of these newborn photos. Yes, we always have smiles and laughs. Some images look better with a semi serious look. It's crazy that the baby ended up with that look as well! It was the perfect image!
