Emma Kate’s Newborn Photos: By Destiny Tillery

When I was six months pregnant, I started looking around for photographers for Emma Kate’s newborn pictures. I haven’t had professional photos done since our wedding, we had the best wedding photographers in nyc. It’s just not something we typically spend money on. However, I knew I wanted newborn pictures of our baby, all the ones I have seen are so adorable!

I found Destiny Tillery photography through a Google search of my area, and am so glad that I did! The pictures on her website are just beautiful, her prices were reasonable, and I loved that she had her own studio full of props, headbands, and backdrops.

Once we booked our session, Destiny was great with communicating with me about what I wanted for the session. She told me to bring any props I wanted to use, and we discussed any specific poses that I liked that I had seen on her website or anywhere else. I ended up bringing a Minnie Mouse hat and a Saints headband, and other than that told her to have fun and let her creative juices flow!

Destiny’s studio is at her home, and I loved seeing all the things that went into the session to keep my baby happy. The room was warm and dark, she utilized white noise, a hot water bottle, and swaddling so that Emma Kate would sleep through the session. A lot goes into newborn posing, and Destiny took a ton of time with us making sure everything looked just right.

While the photos were being taken, Bobby and I were able to relax on a comfy couch. Destiny even had a basket of snacks and a refrigerator of drinks and coffee for us to enjoy.

A couple of weeks after the session, we set up a time to go look at the proofs. I went back to her studio where she had a flat screen TV on the wall. She had set the photos to music on a slideshow for me to view, and then we discussed photo packages and pricing. It was very laid back and such a great experience!

QOTD: Did you do newborn photos? Do you plan to?
