While visiting the Las Vegas area for a photography conference, a small group of photographers and I decided to set up an outdoor newborn session in Red Rock Canyon. Watching the weather for several days before the trip, I knew it wasn’t going to be ideal; meaning it would be a little on the chilly side. One of the other photographers made it a priority to have a custom newborn outfit made just for this special occasion. She ordered something that would keep baby extra cozy and nice and warm in case the weather decided to say on the chilly side. It was a good thing we planned ahead because the weather turned out just like we though. Not quite 75 degrees and a little bit of wind kept things interesting, to say the least. Luckily we were super prepared with lots of warm blankets, wraps and bonnets for baby. I think even more challenging than the weather was the direct sun we had overhead. In the middle of the desert, there weren’t a lot of options for finding shade. So some of the photographers were tasked with the lovely chore of holding a nice big diffuser over the top of the baby to help block the sun.
This little girl’s session might have taken a little extra work from everyone to pull it off, but in the end, we got some great photos for momma.
