Newborn and Baby Photography
Hello baby...welcome to the World!
My approach to newborn photography works well for older babies too. These sessions aren't just for newborns, you can book a photoshoot for your baby at any time. But if you want to capture those crucial early weeks, to hold onto those memories forever, booking in advance is recommended.
For these sessions, I can visit you at home, which usually makes for a calmer and happier baby, and is also easier for you as new parents too. You have everything you need to hand, and I need surprisingly little to capture some amazing images for you. Just my camera, some suitable blankets (which I can bring) and a small space near a window or with good light. (It's always nice to use any special blankets or toys of sentimental value that you have too, just let me know if you have something in particular you'd like to involve in your shoot.)
My sessions are all about keeping it simple. It's just about you and baby.
Here's a link to an example newborn gallery on my blog, which is a good example of a typical shoot with me. There are a range of images of baby with a variety of blankets in simple poses, plus a few candid shots of Mum & Dad. The focus can be wherever you wish - more about baby, or more shots of you all together. We can also include siblings or pets too, these are all things we can talk about when you get in touch.
When to book your newborn photoshoot?
Between 7-14 days old is a good time to have your newborn baby's photoshoot. By 7 days you will have settled into your new routine a little, and baby will likely be quite sleepy and happy for us. (You will also have changed several thousand nappies by now too!) Babies skin is usually nice and clear around this time too.
I'd recommend that you book with me once you've had your 20 week scan. Only around 5% of babies arrive on their due day, but we can at least pencil in an approximate date for you, and then arrange a definite date once baby is born. Feel free to contact me at any time during your pregnancy to say hi and I can give you more information then too.
