PASSION | NYC Newborn Photographer | Virtual Newborn Session
To quickly recap Picture Perfect NY was born during a very difficult time in my life. For the last ten years, it was photography that was the driving force in our family. It was the financial aspect of the photography business that allowed Angela and me to extend our family, to provide for our family, photography business, and more specifically, our studio IS OUR Family. It’s no wonder that often our kids exhibit signs of jealousy towards the studio, claiming that we spend more time on it than on them. However, it is our special family member that is able to financially provide for our family and allows us to take what we love to do to a whole other level. For Angela and myself, it’s our passion for photography that drives us. It drives us so hard to where we are now… in pain and hurt, we cannot practice what we love, our family member is hurt and it feels like there’s nothing we can do. However….
We’ve had an opportunity to hold a few virtual newborn sessions. For this specific one, we used a few home blankets that are somewhat similar to what parents might have at home; we used our daughter’s doll to guide the parents in posing and lighting. From parents’ side, they are using one phone camera for video conferencing and a second phone camera to capture the moments. Today, between, facetime, Facebook messaging, duo, WhatsApp, zoom, etc, using video conferencing is simple and easily attainable.
It takes time, practice, experience, and education to properly pose a newborn baby. To get the most out of the session, we kept posing ultra-simple, classic and elegant.
We’ve further used each other to model the pose, allowing parents to see how to pose and capture the images.
The editing was interesting in itself. As technology advances and cell phone cameras become the predominant method to capture, I often wonder how far can the images be pushed and what can be done with them… Angela helped out with that 🙂
We opened Picture Perfect NY during a very dark time in our lives. We had no idea where we’d go from there, how things will be. It was Angela’s perseverance and most importantly her PASSION that allowed us to push through, learn more, go grow, and meet amazing people along the way. Who knows what the future will hold, what will be, or even how it’ll be? One thing I know is her PASSION and dedication to perfection will not subside and will allow us to capture and create memories for more people, more people to come.
