Baby boy 13 days old | Natural newborn photography
Whenever I have a client come into my newborn studio I start off by asking what they want to get out of their session. Nice photos of their new baby and blank faces can be the initial reaction (doesn’t this lady know what she’s doing?!), and yes obviously I do that without prompting, but if I get a good feel for my clients desires upfront I can taylor the entire session with that in mind and that means they end up with images they really love.
In this instance the emphasise was on natural newborn photography, almost lifestyle photography. I did some gentle posing but we didn’t use any props or hats I have, just simple backdrops and wraps. And master Thomas wanted to be in on the action too cause we got lots of his beautiful eyes (sometimes they just know right!).
We got lots of family photos too, because I think it’s super important to capture those super lovely moments between a new family. I mean this little human has turned your lives upside down, probably haven’t slept since, and yet you’ve never loved something more ever before, it’s kind of amazingly special! Gosh I kind of love my job!
Here are some of my faves:
