Well it’s the start of a new year, so I thought I’d blog about a beautiful newborn shoot I did with little Rowan.
At just seven days old, this is the best time to capture these first precious moments. Just look at those little toes and fingers, the perfect pout, all bundled up and sleepy.
I always, ALWAYS make sure a baby is safe and cosy when doing a newborn shoot, so I come to your home (who wants to trek out when you’ve given birth four days ago!) and set up a posing bean bag with lots of blankets, for different backdrops, and a heater to keep the room nice warm as the baby tends to be nude during the shoot. For some of the poses I will get mummy or daddy to help out holding your little one in place (then I photoshop out hands). Emily, Rowan’s mummy was a star in his shoot and helped keep him in position so he didn’t roll anywhere. I also bring little outfits, hats, headbands and wraps to the shoot so you can choose how you want your newborn to look. I’m happy to shoot in any special outfit you have picked out for them too.
I love doing newborn shoots and feel so privileged that new parents let me into their homes to take photos of their little one at such a precious time, so thank you.
Please do take a look at the newborn shoot I captured below. If you, or you know anyone who is pregnant and would be interested in a new born shoot, I would love it if you could share this post. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to contact me to find out more.
