I’m thrilled to share with you some of Sienna’s newborn album that I designed with images from her amazing newborn session photographed by Carrie Ryan! Of course I photograph my own children, but when it comes to their newborn pictures, I’ve learned it’s best to leave that to a professional specializing in newborns (aka. NOT ME). You wouldn’t think shooting a sleeping baby would be all that difficult, but getting them to sleep is just one item on a long list of tricks that I don’t know. There are so many incredible photographers in Utah, but I had a specific vision for Sienna’s album that I knew only a few photographers could pull off exactly right. Enter Carrie Ryan.
Besides shooting for Busath Photography, Carrie also has a home studio where she specializes in newborn and children’s portraits. Her style is completely classic and timeless which is what I wanted for Sienna. There are so many cute newborn props out there, but sometimes I feel like you notice the props before the baby. I wanted photographs that had a more natural, feminine feel. Carrie has a beautiful collection of fabrics and lace that was perfect. I loved that even though she knew I’m a photographer, she just treated me like a regular client. When she called me she went over all the things I’d need to bring never assuming I’d already know. She reminded me to bring snacks for the girls to keep them happy (which ended up bring a lifesaver). You’d think that’s a given, but I totally wouldn’t have remembered if she hadn’t suggested it.
Today’s photography market is flooded with all types and skill levels of photographers. It can be hard to know where to turn, but I just had to put in a plug for Carrie because she is the real deal. And with that said, I present to you my beautiful new daughter (and her two big sisters)!
I don’t photograph newborns anymore because it’s not something I’m passionate about. Instead, I now happily refer out clients to those who know babies best. If you’d like to get in touch with Carrie give her a call at 801-779-1621 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
