Newborn sessions take place in the comfort of your own home. These sessions are very relaxed and baby led. There is very minimal ‘posing’, the only thing I will do is direct you into the best light or swaddle the baby in a muslin. These sessions are very much just about your beautiful little bundle just as they and telling your story of the first few weeks with a brand new addition to your family.
I know how fast the first few weeks fly by. You are healing from the birth, you are working out feeding and working out how this new little life fits into your family. Its a very emotional and also wonderful time. But it is also so fleeting and with everything else going on I know that I found it hard taking it all in. That’s why I know that having these photos are so important. They give you chance to look back on those first few weeks and remember exactly what it was like with that new baby in your arms.
I have mentioned before that the session itself is just as important as the images. That’s why these sessions are completely baby led. I will try and get your baby to sleep to get those lovely sleepy photos but if the baby doesn’t want to, we will get beautiful photos anyway. If they don’t want to be put down or leave your arms that is fine too. This is all about documenting your baby’s life in their first few weeks and portraying their already evolving personalities.
I also know how hard it is to get on top of housework with a newborn. I honestly don’t want anyone to stress before a photoshoot. Just work on getting yourself ready and we will work around any clutter or I will move it out the way of any shots for you. Some clutter I feel also adds to the story, such as, cards in the windowsill, baby bottles on the tables or muslins draped over the sofa.
