Newborn Photoshoot – Tiffany

Had a wonderful opportunity to photograph a newborn earlier this week! Meet Tiffany, daughter to my friends, Lauren and Joe, whose wedding I had the honor of shooting last year. All throughout Lauren’s pregnancy, she’s come by once every few weeks to get a maternity progress photo done, which was a great project, and so it’s very nice to finally get to meet Tiffany. She just turned three weeks old today!

Photographing a newborn is definitely outside my standard realm of experience. Much like animals and young children, they don’t exactly follow your direction, but even less so. Still, they make up for it by being extra adorable.

So tiny!

It was pretty funny when she stuck her tongue out at me. Maybe she was tired of the paparazzi?

She did have a bit of a meltdown at one point…

But some rocking from her dad totally helped.

As did some food.

And soon she was sleeping peacefully again…

And when she made a total derp face, it was still completely adorable…

She did have one last parting thing to say though, which was a response to Westley’s question from last week:

newborn, "yeah bro, of course I lift"

Congrats again, Lauren and Joe!

    Thanks, Brian! They look wonderful! Even the meltdown and derp face ;)

    • Glad you like them! And yeah, the meltdown helps maintain journalistic accuracy. Wouldn’t want people thinking that newborns are nothing but cuteness and naps!

      And her derp-face is super adorable. You’ll definitely have to save that to show off when she’s of dating age ;-)

    • Thank you!

      And yeah, it was so perfect that Tiffany made that expression and pose together. Clearly, she and Westley are set to be great friends :-D
