Top Secret Personal Project – Newborn Models needed!

As I mentioned on the Lovely Day Photo Facebook page yesterday, 2013 will come with a few changes, but beyond changes I am pleased to announce that I will be taking on a least one personal photography series.  It has been almost 10 years since I’ve had time or inspiration for a personal project, but I have an amazing idea and can’t wait to get started on it!


Throughout the year I will be working on a top secret personal project and will need the assistance of quite a few newborn models.  Right now I know that I will need 5-10 newborns (not all at one time).  The hardest part is going to be finding exactly the right newborn to fill each session/shoots needs.   Below you fill find a list of all of the newborn models I’m looking for.


1. I will need a chubby newborn boy. (I mean CHUBBY, like 10lb+)

2. A redheaded newborn girl… What can I say, I’m partial to redheads! ;)

3. Triplets.  Preferably all girls or all boys and would be thrilled if I found a set of each.  This might be the hardest spot to fill.  If we get near the end of the year and I still haven’t found someone I might need three moms to come in together for this session.

4. A long/tall thin newborn boy.

5. Average sized newborn boy.

6. A dark haired newborn girl. (preferably with a lot of hair)

7. An averaged size newborn girl.


All participants will receive a free session (not including the session I need them for) and one signed 8×10 of the final print used in the series.   All participants will be sworn to secrecy until the project is complete and I can showcase the entire series together.

I am still collecting materials for this project and don’t anticipate being ready to get things started until the beginning of March.  My goal is to do 1 session a month until the project is complete.  The list is not in order and I realize that you cannot predict the color of your newborn’s hair, length or weight.  Therefore the more people that know about this project the better!  All newborn models except the triplets will need to be 10 days old or less to help ensure a peaceful sleeping baby.

If you would like to be on the model list please comment below with your due date.  Once your baby is born please email me if you think your baby will fit the criteria, along with a picture (it can be a cell phone photo). I will continue to update this list throughout the year each time a spot is filled or if I need additional models.

I am so beyond excited for this project and can’t wait to show you all the final series at the end of the year!!!


All the best,
