Congratulations on your tiny bundle! At the moment its a mix of emotions and sleep deprivation and an incredulous feeling of being a Mum!
If you are looking for a memento of your tiny baby a newborn photo shoot is an excellent idea. The way I work is different to the traditional studio approach to photography. I come to you for the session where you are most comfortable. I find this makes baby and you feel much less stressed. I will work around baby to create natural photos – preferring not to do too much posing. #
Although I always get a few adorable close ups of baby on their own I absolutely love to photograph baby with yourselves. I know what you might think – aargh I look a mess and I feel exhausted. Trust me you will not regret getting as few photos of you with baby – these photos show the pure love shared between baby and Mum & Dad. I live for these little moments – the laughs, the rocking baba to sleep the tiny feet squashed against you. These tell the true story of your new family so be brave and you may find you are pleasantly surprised with the results!
