Ivy was so sweet and content during her newborn session, which was back in mid-February, that I didn’t want her session to end. Probably a good thing that I made myself stop, because it was so hard to cull her images. So many beautiful images, and these are just a few of them.
Thank you to Ivy’s parents for choosing Angi Randall Photography to capture their daughter’s newborn portraits.

Oh sweet baby Haddie came in a couple months back for her newborn session, and I am know getting to share her sweetness with you. What is so special about Haddie? She is sweet, has beautiful baby lips, has two older sibling and her mama is a photographer from the Neillsville area. She does stunning lifestyle wedding and senior photography, but has no interest in newborn photography…which is where I come in. I had photographed her second child’s baby pictures a few years back. And so, when she was pregnant with baby number three, she called me almost right away to reserve her session. I felt so honored that she had chose me again. 🙂
So, now that she has shared her little one, and I have some time to do another blog post, I am gonna share a few images from Haddie’s newborn session. She was so sweet to work with.
See. I told you she was sweet.
Thank you to baby Haddie’s mama for choosing Angi Randall Photography and for trusting me with her precious bundle of joy! xoxox
okay…I deleted an image on Facebook of an image that had shown a baby that was hanging from a pouch by another photographer. The baby didn’t look safe at all. I was upset that a photographer would post such an image. Not sure if she thought it looked cute or what. All I know is that I wasn’t trying to ridicule the photographer, I was just merely trying to educate the mama’s to be and potential clients to choose wisely when looking for a newborn photographer.
A newborn photographer should have proper training in handling newborns. Just because the photographer may have children of their own, still doesn’t qualify a person to be a newborn photographer. If you are looking for a newborn photographer, PLEASE make sure you do your homework and don’t chose someone just because they are cheap. Make sure your photographer has proper education, experience and has your baby’s safety in mind at all times. Safety is always first no matter what. And yes, we all have to start somewhere. I know that, but hanging a baby with no spotter or the infant looking like it is choking is not safe. Just make sure SAFETY is in the best interest and that you are the right fit for the photographer you choose. You get what you pay for.
So, now for a little education. Here is a before and after shot that I took a couple weeks back. I rarely do this shot, but every now and then I like to switch it up, or I have a parent ask for this pose. I had the help of both parents and they were very hands on, and I made sure that they never took their eyes off of their baby.
Any questions, let me know. Hope this was a useful visual for baby safety. God Bless.
