I feel so honoured to be asked to photograph a new baby to the family, especially when it's been a long road to becoming parents. Where two become three, how beautiful is this little newborn baby? Congratulations Lia & Michael!
There's something so pure and real about newborn sessions. New parents are in awe over their newborn baby and so in love. If I had to describe a newborn session I'd call it easy going, nice and slow, letting the baby lead the session.
I like to schedule my newborn photo shoots at around 11am. This gives Mum and Dad plenty of time to feed the baby and heat the house prior to me getting there. Babies seem to be calmer in the morning and indoor light is usually better in the am. When I arrive at your home, there's no rush as I don't work to the clock. I'll have a look around for the best diffused light and set up prior to you bringing your baby to the room.
If your baby needs nursing that's fine. We do whatever it takes to keep your baby comfortable and happy. All newborns have very individual personalities and this is what I like to capture. No strange poses for you or your baby. I might ask you to lie on your bed with your baby, cuddle and kiss your baby too. Some babies are wide awake and really aware of their surroundings. You don't have to worry about getting your baby to sleep. If that's your baby at this stage then that's what I want to photograph. If they want to feed a few times or have a dirty nappy that's fine, we take all the time that's necessary to get those photos that you'll treasure in years to come.
Here's a preview of a beautiful newborn baby boy taken a few weeks back.
The arrival of a newborn baby to the family is the most wondrous time in a parent's life. At only 4 days old little Sebastian is the joy in his parent's eyes. How gorgeous is he?
Ba.by-(n) a little bit of heaven sent down to earth! Welcome little Hugo!
