New born baby studio shoot
This was such a lovely shoot to do for so many reasons! Firstly I love newborn photography! Seeing the babies just a few days old is such a privilege. This shoot was extra special as I did the baby Stanley's parent's wedding a few years ago and have also done new born shoots for their 2 other children over the years. They are a great family and it has been so lovely to see them grow!
Baby Stanley was a star! I always allow as much time as is needed for a baby photo shoot. Ideally it is best if the baby is fast asleep as it makes it much easier to get the lovely crunched up poses. I always allow plenty of time for milk breaks during these shoots and if baby is unsettled we wait until they are happy again.
For a newborn shoot I start with photos of baby on his or her own, then add in parents and / or siblings if required. It is nice to get as many images as possible as these first few days go so quickly and little ones change so fast.
I am so lucky that my work involves capturing these precious times.
