Michele Anderson of Pinkle Toes Photography is another photographer whose work I could probably feature all day long. Approached as more of a lifestyle session, this newborn session by Pinkle Toes Photography captures both intimacy between the parents and the sweet little details of a newborn (who was actually 4 weeks old). I especially love the first image here because it’s such a simple image that shows connection between the family and where they seem totally unaware of the camera.
From Pinkle Toes Photography: The newborn in this session was a bit older than most “newborns” (I usually like to do newborn sessions at less than 10 days old, but she was 4 weeks old). I have to admit I was a little bit nervous about that because I hadn’t photographed an older newborn in many years. But it turned out to be wonderful and instead of trying all of those foldy, bendy newborn poses (which I’ve honestly been trying to move away from), we went a little bit more lifestyle. I’m actually more drawn to lifestyle photography for newborns anyway and I love capturing the family and their environment as it is with their new baby. It seems to record the memory of those early days so much more powerfully.
