Lillian’s Newborn Portrait Studio Session With Little Sweet Cheeks Photography, LLC

Washington, Illinois Newborn Photographer | Baby Girl Lillian's Newborn Portrait Studio Session

Today is the start of new things and new beginnings.  It is New Year’s Day of 2023!!!  We cannot believe how far we’ve come, as we opened our portrait studio in 2020.  We are always so happy to meet the new life that has been born into a family.  Some say that all newborns look the same.  We completely disagree with this statement!!  Every newborn baby already has a developing personality that will grow along with them.  Some newborns smile a lot, some are noisy, some sleep soundly; some like to wake often to check out what we’re doing.  (Parents usually love when babies wake up and show off their adorable eyes)!!  It’s a very fascinating process.  This goes right along with what they look like.  We both had very bald newborn babies, so posing a newborn with lots of hair is always amazing to us.  This little girl not only had hair, she had tons of it!!  She also gave us lots of smiles!!!  Lillian’s parents are also very creative people with fun ideas, and we had a great session with them!  They are such a beautiful family!!  For today’s post, we will also explain what each pose is, and this may help with preparing for your own newborn session!!  The first image is baby swaddled in a cradle.  Babies are used to being snuggled in the womb, and are very often comforted when wrapped up.  The second image is baby swaddled in a basket.  The next pose is baby posed on her tummy with her leg hanging in a victorian inspired bed.  As you can see, baby is very content and happy in this position.  The next pose is often requested, and that is baby posed in a bucket!!  This can also be done in a basket as well.  This is one of our favorite poses.  The photo in blush pink also features baby in one of our most requested poses, and that is the froggy pose.  Since there are two photographers posing your newborn, we can do this safely, as well as fairly quickly, since one of us can always hold baby while the other photographer takes the photos needed.  (This pose is achieved by taking several photos, and is actually created later in Photoshop)!!
