Photographs from your newborn baby bubble.
Two weeks after a newborn photo shoot I take the set of photographs to show parents. Without fail the parents comment on just how much they’ve changed already. They’ve filled out, their newborn look is disappearing, sometimes their head and face shape is different….. all in the space of a couple of weeks.
This is why photoshoots done early on in your baby’s life are so incredibly precious.
When your newborn comes home it’s a pretty unique time. So different to ordinary life. One or both of you are off work. Your routines are out the window. You sleep and eat according to when your tiny baby allows you to. It’s like you’re in a little bubble.
A little newborn bubble.
And IF you’re lucky it’s strangly relaxing in this bubble. Just you and your baby getting to know each other. You act a little bit odd in this time too…..you do things like stare at their teeny fingers and toes for ages. Like you’ve never seen teeny fingers and toes before. You can actually feel a bit joyful when changing their nappy. Losing a couple of hours sleep in the middle of the night is just not a problem! At no time in your life again will you stare for hours at toes, enjoy cleaning poop and not mind losing 3 hours sleep 🙂
And that is exactly what this shoot is about.
You and your baby chilling in this bubble. Your photo shoot will take place in your home. Your pictures will be real and honest. And because of this when you look at your pictures you will always remember what this time was like and how it felt. And trust me if you don’t know already looking at your newborn photographs can be a life saver in terrible two’s and teenage angst land. When things get tough in time to come you can lock yourself in a cupboard with a bottle of wine and your newborn pictures and everything will be well with the world again.
Meet Baby Seth
Mum Gemma and dad Dan have 3 more children. Yes, I know. As well as being gorgeous and cute thankfully Seth is easy. He’s no bother, as we say up north. Gemma and Dan’s other 3 children sat patiently waiting in the kitchen. They recognised that Seth needs his own shoot as they have 100’s with him already (not really they were at school and nursery so we grabbed some quiet time in the midst of their madness). Gemma is a photographer too so their other 3 children are all taken care of but she wanted some pictures where she could be on the other side of the camera. I really loved this shoot, Gemma and Dan make it all look so easy 🙂
