Parents & Babies

Mothers and fathers are welcome to join baby in front of the camera.  Whether you wish for a traditional smile-at-the camera portrait or more artistic connection or lifestyle newborn portraits, you will not regret being photographed with your newborn.   Professional photographers know proper lighting techniques and posing in order to flatter even the most exhausted parents.  The goal for your session is to remain stress free and simply enjoy this experience fully while the most amazing images are captured of your new baby.  If you have any questions or special requests, please bring them up prior to your session so that preparations may be made to insure we provide you the best.

Although it looks like these images were taken in a portrait studio,  these images were taken in a home environment.  Jodie knows how to photograph in any situation to create professional quality images.  As far as posing, she guides each parent into place, observes their natural movements, and then changes position to create a subtle yet important difference.  She strongly feels that if the parent and baby are comfortable, the resulting images will be peaceful and gorgeous.

New parents are encouraged to practice holding baby in different positions prior to session to become comfortable manipulating baby from arm to arm and high up on shoulder.  Always have someone else available to make sure that baby stays safe in every position.  Some babies prefer certain positions over others and your input is always welcome at all times.  Make sure you check out the what to wear section in session details.

J. Otte Photography believes in capturing the love in all relationships beautifully whether traditional or nontraditional and does not discriminate.
