As a newborn photographer I obviously love capturing images of a baby in their first few weeks of life. It’s a unique time for a family where regular life waits at the door to be replaced by an endless round of feeding, changing, feeding, changing, watching them sleep (if you’re lucky…), washing, washing and more washing. It is an exhausting and exhilarating time, chaotic and tranquil. It’s often an intense, sleep deprived time, extremely emotional and sometimes scary and it can become a blur very quickly.
As a newborn photographer I love to document this time so parents can forever return…
When I was a newborn photographer for Baby Grace’s her session was every bit as peaceful as it looks. Mum Beth and Dad Brad knew how lucky they were as Grace is their second baby. Grace would wake up every now and then, open an eye, attempt to protest at us manoeuvring her around then give up very quickly because she’d just rather sleep. It was just too much effort….
Newborn shoots can be done anytime within the first month or so of your baby being born. The ideal time is around 2 weeks but you can have them earlier than this if you choose. Click here for more newborn galleries.
If you’d like to book a photo session with your newborn or would like to give a friend or relative a gift for their newborn present please contact me here to arrange this. I look forward to hearing from you 🙂
