A few months ago one of my amazing brides from 2014 got in touch to ask if I could do her cousins newborn photography and so we recently had the pleasure of meeting the rather beautiful Wilson and his very yummy mummy Lucy (who i remember from the wedding as she was the first on the dance floor!)
I love being a newborn photographer and consider myself very lucky to meet so many squidgy little bundles of joy. All new parents are different but they have one thing in common, sleep deprivation! Which is why its so important to capture those tiny hands, feet, lips and skin because newborn babies change every day. I always take everything with me to my clients home which makes things much easier for mum and dad. Babies are usually posed on a bean bag or in baskets and blankets and babies safety is always the number one priority, no matter what the position- mum or dad will always be supporting baby to ensure their safety and we often edit out parents hands from the photo until we have the beautiful creative photo you will have seen. You can read some frequently asked questions for more information.
Wilson was a few months old when I met him, which meant that a lot of the typical sleepy newborn poses wouldn’t be possible as they are usually done within the first 10-14 days when baby is most sleepy and relaxed. Older babies won’t usually sleep through the session like newborns, but that means I can capture smiles, dribbles, bubbles and the personality of your baby which is just as beautiful.
Wilson slept for some of his session but then woke up happy and smiling ready for his photo to be taken, I think he rather enjoyed it judging by these smiles but see what you think! Lucy and Wilson- I had so much fun spending the morning with you and hope you enjoy your preview.
