Congratulations on the birth (or soon to be birth!) of your little bundle of joy! What a special idea to savour the moment and remember your tiny baby during the first stages of their lives.
My newborn images are natural, simplistic and void of excessive props and posing.Your final collection of images will include baby on her own, the little details, baby with parents and cuddles with siblings. I love to photograph babies in more of a lifestyle sense than a posed or staged style.
Therefore, I photograph babies a little differently than some, I choose to use minimal props, most of the props you see in my shoots are straight from your home. If we use the blanket Nanna knitted for baby, that has way more meaning than using one of mine! I have a few things I can bring along on the day though, if you get stuck.
When I see a newborn staring up in to a mother’s eyes or snuggling in to a dad’s neck, that is what I want to capture. When photographing baby on their own, I want to capture the natural way they move, rather than placing them in an unnatural pose. I want to save that very raw and beautiful connection between a parent and their newborn baby and give it to you to cherish forever.
It is a no fuss, relaxed experience, in your home or my studio where you and your little family are most comfortable. Prior to attending your home, I will email you with a checklist and details of the shoot to assist you on the day. Please note newborn babies are best photographed around the 7 day mark (give or take!) and a session can take anywhere from 1-3 hours. Please contact me if you’d like to book in and I will pop babies due date in my diary – then when baby arrives we can lock in the session time.
