Alexa :: Lancaster Newborn Photographer

Winter has always been my slow season in the Pennsylvania photography world because so many people prefer outdoor portraits.  I did have a decent customer base as a Lancaster Newborn Photographer, but it was still always my slowest time for business because family photography fills up a good bit of my schedule as well.  So, in my slower times I always try to learn something new.  This year I went crazy with the education part of my business.   You can never possess too much knowledge, right?  To start, I decided to start taking some studio lighting classes in preparation for opening my own photography studio.  I also decided to buy some webinars on newborn photography.  And, if that wasn’t enough, I met with a mentor to learn advanced Photoshop skills one to two times a week.  So, I was busy and I was learning a LOT.  I also decided it was time to increase my prop collection for new humans.  I was tired of my old stuff.  So, in addition to learning, I was spending!!  And, oddly enough, this was my busiest winter ever.  I booked a dozen newborn sessions, but unfortunately, none of the expected babies were making their entrance into the world until Spring.  So, I put out a model call…a heavily discounted session for someone who would let me practice my newly discovered knowledge and skills on their 5-12 day old baby.  Enter Alexis…her mother emailed me and said we had the same hair stylist at Blades Salon and she saw on Facebook that I needed a model.  She was due the following day and would be induced the following Monday which meant I could have my hands on a new human within 10 days.  Done.  Alexis came into the world three days later weighing in at 9 lbs, 8 ounces and looking just beautiful….the perfect model.  I had a wonderful time practicing with her.  Her parents were patient and chatty and the entire experience was truly exactly what I had been hoping for.  I sincerely hope that I am able to work with Miss Alexa and her parents in the future <3
