Newborn photography is something I absolutely love. I have two little ones of my own, and being fresh out of the season of adjusting to reality with a little one, I feel incredibly passionate about documenting the transition into parenthood. I find it an awe inspiring thing to witness the newness of life, and am honoured to be a part of this journey with young families.
Below is a little more information on a newborn session with me, as well as a portfolio of my newborn work.
Newborn photography is best done between the first 3 and 10 days of your baby’s life. During this time they are still very sleepy which allows great opportunities for the sleepy posed images. If you have missed this window, there is no need to worry, we are able to work around it, and I will still aim to capture the beautiful miracle of this new life.
I budget 2 hours for the newborn session so as to have ample time for feeding, nappy changes and settling in between the photoshoot.
The ideal time to book for your newborn shoot is two months before your due date – I will diarise the due date and wait for you to let me know when your baby has arrived. Although there is always some mystery involved regarding the timing of the birth of your baby, knowing your due date allows for better planning from my side.
My style is a mixture of documentary photography and posed shots. In between posed shots, it is inevitable that your baby will want a cuddle from mom or dad to settle back into a sleepy state – I make the most of this time to capture the tenderness shared between yourself and your baby
I work on location – therefore I would come to where you feel most comfortable with your newborn, where you are easily able to navigate your way around to find bottles, nappies, a change of clothing, etc. Most often this is the clients home.
