About newborn and tiny baby sessions
My aim is to keep things true! When your baby yawns or sneezes unexpectedly, I’ll do my best to capture it… or when older siblings go in for a little kiss, I’ll be ready. But I’ll provide a lot of guidance and direction to ensure we get the most beautiful light possible in your home.
If your baby is sleeping (which is usually a good chunk of the session)… 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 to be a fad? Rather I take pics snuggled in familiar arms, asleep in their own cot, wearing their own clothes and using as many of their own possessions as possible. So families 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 sessions with Amy Blackwood Photography can take between 3 and 4 hours. I promise it goes quickly! This allows plenty of time for nappy changing, feeding, settling so no-one feels rushed. Siblings often have a good say on how the session runs too! If you might be interested, or know someone else who might be interested, get in touch!
