Welcoming Baby Boy Nasir /Scottsdale, Arizona baby photographer

Newborn

September 2, 2021

Are you looking to hire a baby photographer in Scottsdale, Arizona? It’s no coincidence that you have stumbled across my blog. Hello and welcome! While the majority of my newborn sessions take place in a client’s home, some do prefer a studio location for their photo shoot. Though I do not have a physical studio location, there are awesome spaces in the area that can be rented. Studio House AZ in downtown Phoenix is one of them. This is where I captured my favorite most recent boudoir maternity session with Nasir’s parents. Baby boy came early. Last week, I finally got to meet him and capture some newborn sweetness for the family.

Most babies love to be swaddled. This is fantastic news for professional newborn photographers who specialize in newborn posing. Once they feel nice and snug, they often drift right off to sleep. It is usually the key to calming a fussy baby during a photoshoot. As the safety of your baby is my number one priority,  swaddling him or her makes including young siblings a lot easier as well. There’s no need to worry about hand and foot replacement when posing your baby which makes passing your little angel from one person to the next more efficient.

Did you know that skin-to-skin contact helps to develop a more caring behavior in dad and also a more sensitive approach to parenting? Research suggests that it decreases cortisol levels in new dads which is greatly linked to anxiety. Less stress and less anxiety have a direct positive, correlation on the parent’s relationship which naturally affects the family dynamic. In addition to all the amazing benefits of skin-to-skin contact, just how stunning is the visual contrast of tiny Nasir in the strong arms of his daddy?

There are so many images I love, but this family photo is one of my absolute favorites. I can literally feel the joy and the happiness that Nasir has brought to the sweet couple.
