Session Share with Keri Meyers | Macallen at 10 days New

Perfect. Lil. Peanut.

My favorite subjects to work with are newborns. I get excited each and every time a new parent walks into my studio with their new little miracle. I look forward to hearing all about their experience as they welcomed their tiny new family member into the world. With each session my goal is to showcase this new little life. I love to capture those teeny tiny feet, fingers, eye lashes and lips – oh, those lips get me every time. 🙂

Macallen is quite possibly the tiniest babe I have photographed. At just ten days new and 5 1/2 pounds, this lil guy curled up so snugly. Such a handsome little man and soooo sleepy. I love to use props, but my focus always remains on the newborn. I keep my props to a minimum so that they don’t over power the reason we are here – to capture this fresh new little life in those first few days of life.

    I’m a huge fan of your work and love to see new pics from a session posted on FB/blog. I was wondering if you might be willing to share a few tricks of the trade to keep a newborn baby (under 12 days old) SLEEPING especially when you are going for naked or semi-naked shots? I’ve heard a space heater helps to keep them warm. But are there others things? Does the time of day matter (better in AM then afternoon)? Full tummies help (but what if baby just ate, falls asleep then wakes up when unwrapped from blanket/diaper?) Any tips would be great – I feel like your nickname should be baby whisperer!

    Jennifer,
    I always ask that parents interact with their babies as much as possible before the session to ensure they are good and sleepy when it’s time for shooting. I keep my studio at 85 degrees and have a white noise machine and soft music on at all times. It’s never too quiet. That along with a full belly and rocking to sleep works wonders. For me, the positioning process is very slow with little movements at a time to keep baby in that deep slumber. 🙂
