All newborn photoshoots are special but made even more so when I’ve also photographed the Mummy-to-Be for a pregnancy shoot. We had lots of fun during her session with her partner making her laugh and fooling around before also getting some more thoughtful serene shots.
Natural baby photos
A few weeks later and this little treasure arrived! I photographed Baby C when he was 7 days old – the perfect age for newborns as they are just so brand new you can capture all those gorgeous features.
I love to keep the poses very simple organic and natural and baby C was happiest when his feet were tucked up in an open swaddle like this. Some photographers specialise in poses that need lots of support for the baby but I prefer to just concentrate on using natural light and gentle natural posing. Babies also have their own preferred position with some needing to have their hands by their side and others prefer to be wrapped so I always take this into account.
The inbetween moments
This candid shot was taken inbetween set ups and is one of my favourites from the session. I love the intimacy from this moment. You can see a few other images from this newborn photoshoot – tiny features captured to be remembered forever.
Some photos really lend themselves to black and white and I really liked the way this one turned out – so full of drama.
I look forward to hearing from you!
