When a client books in with me I always encourage them to take at look on my website, Pinterest and the internet in general so they can let me know what kinds of photographs they absolutely love so I can tailor their photo shoot to best suit their tastes. This client loved a flower garland photograph she had seen on the internet... so that's what we did.. .
My aim is to create beautiful photographs during your Newborn Session that you will treasure forever. To do this I always invite parents to bring along any special items to the shoot. They are often items like a beautiful blanket that Nanny has crocheted, or an old teddy which was once Mummy's favourite. Sometimes the items can be larger, like this stunning 'toy' car that Mummy and Daddy bought for his nursery. These extra special elements make the Newborn Session unique and personal to that family.
As a Newborn Photographer it is important to always be producing new and creative images. One of the ways I do this is by introducing new props. My latest prop is an absolutely adorable hand made 'hot air balloon' . This prop is so versatile as it is a perfect for little boys or girls as I've used neutral colours and looks fabulous with any number of different coloured backdrops. The hot air balloon can be personalised with that crocheted blanket or hat knitted by Nanna, or with the beautiful soft toy gift too.
Now that I have my new shelves in place in my studio I spent today having a big sort out of all my baskets, buckets, props, blankets, wraps, props, hats, hair pieces and accessories.
This gorgeous little boy was 10 days old when his Mummy and Daddy brought him in for his newborn photo shoot. As you can see I just had to have a cuddle, I couldn't resist. This little mans parents were just so lovely and relaxed as this is not their first baby, so even though he was insisting on trying to stay awake to watch the goings on, and didn't really want to curl up as much as newborn babies do in the first week, we still had fun and I got some beautiful photographs for his Mummy and Daddy to treasure forever.
