Auburn Newborn Photographer | Dezmond Tavner

May

04

The more I do this the more confidently I label the city I worked in. “Auburn Newborn Photographer” has a pretty great ring to it.

We took these portraits in Dezmond’s sweet little sisters room. His mom, Jessica, is also a photographer! It was fun to work with her set up and props to choose from as well! Dezmond happily slept through most of our session but when he was done, he was done! I always tell my Mama’s before we dive into a newborn session that this is the only sort of work I do where the client calls all the shots! How long we shoot, the poses and wraps we do, how many breaks we take, and even when we’re done. It’s always up to baby’s comfort and tolerance.

Often times we stop for feedings, diaper changes, and just a good snuggle. If baby settles after 10 or so minutes, we keep going. Otherwise, we work with what we were able to get! Perhaps this outlook will change as I become more experienced. Maybe I will learn to read babies better and control my environment more. Just maybe, I will get faster at wrapping or positioning to add more variety. But until I find the perfect Newborn Portrait Mentor, this is my approach and I think the results are still worth every effort!

I’m so excited to be learning some new wrapping techniques from Newborn Photographer, Meg Bitton. You can check out the mini course I’m taking HERE.

I want to title this gallery, “The Many Faces of Dezmond”. He was so expressive for us! I will never tire of clicking my shutter during the rare newborn cheesy grin. Not even my little, but HEART MELTED. ♥ Thank you so much for having me, Jessica, and to Aera’s grandma for being on toddler duty while we worked a little magic!

Broken sublimity. “I am because you wouldn’t have it any other way.” You, are not. I should have heard that. They weren’t an illusion on my mountain. They were fixed in the sky. A planet with gravitational pull that kept my feet on the ground. A united reality where I slept safely. A further joke […]

Becky booked Ethan’s Baseball Senior Photos with The Studio about a year before we were able to finally document them. I’m so happy we finally got together to document a special time for their whole family and especially Ethan! Becky and I first met when I photographed her and Aaron’s engagement photos at the Milton […]

We’ve officially been nomadic for 18 months and we find ourselves getting cozy in Lake Chelan, Washington for the summer! With two weddings remaining summer 2022, we’re preparing to leave the state, but not just yet. I feel the need to stay close to my couples around their wedding dates which puts us not traveling […]

I’m celebrating. In a family suite at Little Creek. By a dreamy electric fireplace in dusk window light. There’s the sound of little boys watching cartoons in another room and Dinah munching food while I sip Grapefruit Pompelini. Clynn’s at a Poker Tournament. Laughing, I’m sure. Winning? Most likely. Dropping a hand or two out […]
