Newborn sessions are as individual as the baby being photographed. Whilst I have an ever growing collection of beautiful props and blankets I find it important to add that personal touch. If parents have blankets, soft toys or comforters they would like to include I try my best to get them in the images. Babies also make it very clear if they're not happy in certain poses, I will always listen to the baby and keep them as comfortable as possible.
As a mother I know only too well how fast our babies grow, it's easy to forget how tiny they were. Newborn sessions are best carried out in the first 10-14 days after birth. However, it is not always possible to photograph a baby in the very early days, I am only too aware of issues that can arise after the birth for both mother and baby, so appreciate that parents may wish to have their babies photographed when they're a little older.
Henry was seven weeks when he came for his photo shoot and Layla six weeks.
Both Henry and Layla were amazingly happy and smiley babies, that needed some persuasion to sleep. These images would have been much harder to achieve . As it was, they both slept for only a very brief moment. I got as many photos from as many angles as possible!
During a newborn session I have to handle the babies in order to pose them and get them ready for each image. I only do this with consent from the parents.
Safety and comfort are my highest priority, especially as the babies are so fragile in the early days of their lives. I handle them as if they were my own baby, I will comfort them and do my very best to settle them in to a deep sleep. I always make sure someone is close to the baby, even when positioning on the bean bag, they may look and feel very secure but the startle reflex can be very strong and as such I ensure babies are watched at all times.
