I LOVE babies, especially newborns! I love their tiny little feet and hands, pouty lips, thin tiny eyelashes and that soft fuzzy hair on their little bodies. Growing up I was a real tomboy and couldn't stand the thought of playing with barbies!! I did however love 'real' babies, you know the ones that were about the size of a newborn and you could change their clothes and put a nappy on them, mine was also quite heavy and felt like a real baby. I'm pretty sure I still have her packed away at my parents with all kinds of other bits and bobs like my Cabbage Patch Kid named Felix that I took EVERYWHERE. He even went to hospital one time when I was little and the doctor gave him a blue hat like the one he was wearing :) When I got older I started babysitting (at about 12) and then at about 18 I took a nanny job in the city 2 hours away from my parents. After that job I worked for many families with children of all different ages in a few different counties around the world. Although I love children of all ages I absolutely LOVE babies and 2 of my dream jobs were caring for 12 week old triplets and 7 week old twins. I was so lucky that those boys had such awesome parents to work for as well!!
Anyway I should get on with what the title states, the Newborn Model Call right! Sometimes when I get new props or new lighting or an idea in my head and I need a model I will post a modelling call. In exchange you will receive the session at no charge with a password protected online gallery and your choice of 5 complimentary images. The parent must sign a model release/agreement allowing me to use the images taken for my portfolio and marketing.
Model Call Sessions are not the same as a regular session and are to capture a specific look or perhaps to try a new technique, prop, pose or even a location. If time allows additional images may be taken if requested by the client.
So if you or someone you know is pregnant and is due within the next 2 months or so I would love to chat with you or them and discuss how you can be one of my modelling families. Whether this is your first baby or you are expanding your family I welcome any family at any stage. If there are siblings I am happy to take additional shots with their new baby brother or sister.
I look forward to talking to you soon!
