Beach Baby – Marblehead MA Newborn Photographer

Back in May I put out a model call for moms who would be willing to let me photograph their baby at the beach. At sunset. I didn’t think I’d get too many responses, but I actually got quite a few! This little guy is the first of my summer “beach babies.” He helped me cross off a big item from my photographer’s bucket list. I have ALWAYS wanted to do this!



Normally I don’t photograph newborns in the evening, for several obvious reasons, the biggest of which is that I work only with natural light. I was nervous about having a finite amount of time to get the setups/poses I wanted. The key to shooting at sunset is starting early enough so that there’s still some light left, but late enough that the sun isn’t still too high in the sky. Luckily I found a little grassy patch at the edge of the beach which was the perfect place to start until the sun went down just enough for the magic to happen…
