This lifestyle newborn portrait was taken in the recently developed Penn Garrison Apartments, These apartments are located in the former General Nutrition Center (GNC) corporate headquarters.
I often like to feature client homes (in lieu of my studio) for newborn portraits as it can provide a timeless nostalgia when looking pack on the photos as time passes. I speak from experience here as I still look back fondly on pictures of my little ones when they were newborns. Being able to shoot in your home helps to provide an additional snapshot of that moment in time.
Here this mama is holding her beautiful newborn son in their modern style apartment. While the windows provided plenty of natural light, I also used a wireless Canon 600EX-RT speedlite to provide the extra pop of light that really helps to fill out the portrait.
