Staten Island Newborn Mini | Sophia

Staten Island Newborn Mini

Baby Sophia was extra special to me since she was the new niece of my best friend Mike. His sister Paula who I have known much of my life just welcomed her first baby to the world and I was honored to be able to capture this for her family. I met Sophia on a sunny day in Staten Island. She had captured me with her beauty however she was not fully convinced on taking pictures. She was awake and fussy for most of the session and we weren’t able to get all the poses I had planned. I never like to guarantee any specific poses to my clients for this reason. The baby runs the session and I am their slave. I was extremely disappointed in this scenario since I knew this family so well and I wanted to give them my very best work. Regardless I always do my best to get the best photos and work my butt off until I am satisfied. My favorite series of shots had to be on the grey blanket where you get to see the many faces of Sophia (happy to sad to screaming). I was beyond content with the shots we got and I know her family was as well.
