When I made the announcement recently that I was going to start to incorporating slideshow videos into all newborn session pricing as of the beginning of 2015, I wanted to make sure to not leave out the previous newborns that I have photographed.
I first started photographing newborns in 2011 and it was a slow progression to where we eventually needed to establish the Red Bridge Raleigh Newborn Studio in 2013. Things and all the stuff required for newborn sessions added up quickly and as we started to photograph more and more of our smallest clients, we realized quickly that they were a huge part of all things Red Bridge and we really wanted to create a unique experience for our clients.
Recently I went through my newborn portfolio and while I did pause a few times and think “hmmm Rebecca, you have really come a long way,” I also accept and realize that this is going to be a continuous progression as I still evolve and define my “style.” This video is really a good demonstration of that because I picked some of my favorites from the past four years. There is definitely a difference over time as I have evolved my style and preferences and really – I want to thank each and every one of you that have trusted me with such a huge and important part of your families lives.
I have photographed multiple newborns within the same family, some the first and only newborn and others didn’t live in the area when they had their first newborn so I got to photograph the second one. Really going through old portfolio images from the past 4 years has been a huge way of thinking how very lucky and thankful I am to have been the chosen one to document that newborns session.
I do hope you enjoy a few of my favorites from over the past 4 years. My very first newborn session was Alex and I had the honor to photograph his baby brother years later as he was one of the first newborns in the Red Bridge Raleigh Newborn Studio.
It’s been quite a journey so far and I can’t wait to continue the ride!
