Baby Layla at 4 Weeks - Studio Portraits in Atascadero

Four-week Baby Portrait - Studio 101 West Photography

I don't photograph a lot of babies, but when a old client comes in with their new grandbaby and some great ideas of what they like, it can be a fun challenge. After being a full time photographer for 30 years I pretty much know how to shoot just about anything and I know babies like a warm and soft environment so I turned up the heat and put her on a pre-warmed soft fuzzy blanket. I also used the biggest, softest studio light I have to give it that big warm window light feel.

Baby in Guitar Case - Infant Portrait - Studio 101 West Photography
This is one of my favorites. Both dad and grandpa are guitarists so we came up with this idea to use one of their guitar cases. To me it was much more personal than using a basket or wrapping them up like a cocoon in some unnatural position.

Here are some with Layla and Ava her 6 year old big sister. Ava did awesome even when her baby sister peed all over her legs and the background. (I gotta get some puppy pads in the studio for next time.)
