Newborn baby photography
Photographing newborns is a privilege, not least because it is such a fleeting and precious moment in any family’s life. Very often I return to work with couples whose wedding I documented when they go on to have children. This is particularly special since we already have a rapport that brings natural warmth to subsequent Newborn and Family shoots.
There’s nothing quite like a newborn photo shoot. It really is such a magical time; the joy of a new baby seems to hang in the air and the incredible bond between babies and parents at such a fresh age is so strong it is practically visible. It is something I never get tired of photographing.
Newborn photo shoots can also be a great opportunity to get creative, usually there are no end of props; favourite toys, presents from adoring grandparents, little outfits Mummy’s has had in the cupboard since long before the due date… Of course baby may not always take kindly to all this attention and may prefer to sleep, or cry, or feed… As a father of two I understand this; all it takes is a little patience and it only takes a second to capture that perfect moment on camera forever.
Trying to think of a special gift for a fresh, new little family? A newborn photo shoot can make a perfect gift and can also create some adorable wall art for the family home.
