The Traveling Newborn

The Traveling Newborn

It was such a pleasure to have baby Roman visit Neal Urban Studio for his newborn session. We had a beautiful maternity session at Delaware Park a few months earlier. It was one of the hottest days of the year, but the family did amazing! During the session, mom to be told us some of her ideas and themes for Roman's room. We wanted to bring that to life in the newborn session!

We had almost everything for this session. We just wanted a map for a backdrop. After shopping around a bit, we found the perfect size for this tiny baby! Once he was asleep, he was so cozy and did not stir. We were able to get a lot of great photos! Newborn sessions are not always easy. Sometimes the baby does not sleep at all and there is really nothing you can do. Once the baby is fast asleep or industry term, "milk drunk" we can sometimes get three different set ups done! Our goal is really one solid idea, but the more the merrier!

To get some of these newborn photos, we have three of us working. We have a newborn assistant that helps with handling and calming the baby. Neal is ready with the camera and lighting and I do the sets. All hands on deck!
