Newborn photos used to intimidate me to no end. I’ve never wanted to do a staged newborn shoot, you know, like the ones where babies are in baskets and wearing weird hats. I feel these look unnatural and it’s just not my jam.
I prefer a documentary style. So when Maile asked me to do Cyrus’ newborn photos, and that she wanted a more photojournalistic style – I was stoked out of my mind. Like literally shaking with excitement.
It’s a delight to document both Maile’s pregnancy and the first week of her little boy’s life. I feel so blessed to have been a part of this journey. I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.
