Just a few words on newborn/tiny baby photography..
My aim is to keep things true and simple! What do I mean by that exactly?
So let’s say they are sleeping (which is usually a good chunk of the shoot!)… I tend not to start wrapping them in unfamiliar blankets, dressing them in accessories or moulding them up into poses.. I know this can look cute but maybe one day we’ll all look back and consider this (dare I say it..) to be a kind of fad? Rather I take pics snuggled in familiar arms, asleep in their own cot, using as many of their own possessions as possible. So family can look back one day and say, “remember that blanket she loved”, “oh remember how he used to sleep like that!”, “remember that favourite toy…” This to me is sooo important in a photo, to capture things that are true and will make you smile in years to come.
Newborn shoots at home can take between 2 and 4 hours. This allows plenty of time for nappy changing, feeding, settling so no-one feels rushed! I’ll arrive, we’ll usually get the kettle on and we let the little bundle of joy lead the shoot… If you might be interested, or know someone else who might be interested, get in touch!
