Behind the Scenes

I had the pleasure of photographing another photographer’s baby a while back. When she was here, she very generously offered to take a few behind the scenes pics for me. To see more recent behind the scenes stuff and pretty newborn pics, please follow me on Instagram and Facebook @Anne Wilmus Photography.ย ๐Ÿ™‚

Please excuse the big sweat mark on my back. I was 30 weeks pregnant and had 2 space heaters blowing on me. It was hot! If you had your newborn photos done with me while I was pregnant, the shirt Iโ€™m wearing probably looks familiar to you. I wore it for 90% of my newborn shoots during that time because I always like to wear a neutral color so I donโ€™t put any sort of color cast on the baby. I also keep my hair pulled back so that I donโ€™t get any stray strands in front of the lens. My wedding rings come off too so that I donโ€™t scratch the baby or snag the blankets with them.

This is the final set-up we did. Harper was waking up again but we were able to keep her asleep just long enough to get this shot, thanks to her pacifier. Out of all of the instructions I give to parents prior to their newborn session, the number one most important thing is to ย bring a pacifier! Even if itโ€™s not something they use regularly, this can truly make or break the photo session!
