Newborn babies have a beautiful gentleness about them, so unique to those first days of life.
When photographing Newborns under 3 weeks old, I prefer to come to your home and make it less stressful and more relaxed for you and your baby. I will work at your little one's pace (and yours since you will no doubt be tired from the birth and lack of sleep!) Most of the baby photography i do is with "Natural Light" coming from a large window or sliding door. I might have to ask to move some furniture around to create the perfect shot :)
Most people book this BEFORE the baby arrives as it is best to capture newborn photos within the first couple of weeks.
Being a mother myself I understand how unpredictable babies can be and it is my aim to work in such a way that your session is as relaxed as possible.
Once your session is booked, I will issue you a "Check List" of all the things we need to prepare for the fun newborn photography shoot.
I will be bringing baby props such as baskets, knitted hats, little doves and flowers for girls...you choose whatever your style might be or we can go simple and contemporary with no props...Only your beautiful baby!
Clothes that work best for parents are black long sleeve tops, crisp white shirts (or T-Shirts) and dark coloured bottoms. Solid colors are best too! A change of clothes is a good idea since babies usually wait until you take their diaper off to wet!
Baby sessions are never timed and are in a "go with the flow" format, usually lasting about 2-3 hours (including setting up).
I never rush a session and I understand that the baby will need to stop for feeding and changing and also that he/she may just get a bit cranky and need a cuddle.
If you would like to see photos i've taken, please go to the bottom of the web page where the directory tabs are located and click on "Gallery", once there, click on "Newborns" on the main window selection.
Thank you and enjoy!
