Newborn Photography Video: What I’m Makin’ Monday

| |

As I mentioned a couple weeks ago, I’m tackling a new business venture and starting a side photography and videography business. I don’t think everyone quite understood what I meant when I said I wanted to do video and how it can be even more powerful than photos.

Sure, it’s fun to hang your photo on the wall, but it’s even cooler to have a special DVD that shows the entire story behind the photo.

You can see the photos from this session on my photography website but I wanted to share this video today.

I just got word from a homebirthing mama I’ve been meeting with, that she just had her baby so I’m going to be heading over to shoot their first moments together as a family today.

I learned a lot from this first shoot with Tara, who is actually my personal photographer. So it was fun to return the favor for her and her son. I consider this more of a “mommy and me” shoot than a newborn shoot since daddy wasn’t there but my hope is to do all sorts of variety of these with families of all ages and sizes! And of course, I hope to make the next even better. Let me know what you think!(edited to add: The song is Hourglass by Mindy Gledhill. My plans for the next one are to add that to the credits and their names at the beginning of the video as well)

  1. I think it’s a good video when I was tearing up right when the music started. I love the song, it fit perfectly and the whole thing was beautiful.

    I was thinking it could have been more special to have scenes with the baby and husband, but obviously I don’t know the background. I loved that you used shots of the nursery and all the details – fingers, hair, etc. Great job!
