Every photographer has a favorite subject to photograph: whether it’s landscapes, cars, people, etc. Personally, I prefer to photograph people. That is one of the reasons I enjoy working at Andrae Michaels professional photography studios so much. There is something special about capturing important moments for families, couples, and babies that makes every day in the studio worth it.
Infant Portraits: They Run the Show
My favorite type of people to photograph are babies, especially newborns. These infants have such a sweet innocence that I just can’t get enough of. Newborn photography is one of the most difficult yet rewarding tasks. I think I enjoy it so much because instead of capturing “posed” photos, I prefer to capture more candid shots. That way you can see more of the subject’s personality and experience more emotion when looking at the photos. During their session, the newborns pretty much run the show. As a photographer trying to capture this on camera, I go with the flow and let them do their thing. This process is what I enjoy the most about newborn baby photos.
I’ve always loved kids. But before I started working at Andrae Michaels portrait studio, I was honestly scared to photograph babies that were younger than a toddler. The first newborn photography shoot I ever assisted with when I first got hired was a newborn shoot – and after experiencing that, I was hooked. Seeing the parents adore photos of their fresh little ones, even if the newborn portraits aren’t perfect, is a warm and satisfying feeling.
Why I love working at Andrae Michaels Portrait Studios
I will forever be grateful to Andrae Michaels for giving me the skills and practice that I need to constantly improve my studio photography and making me step out of my comfort zone. Without this photography company, I may not have ever found my favorite part of being a professional photographer.
