Newborn Photography That Makes You Smile

The first month with your newborn baby is a special time and one that you want to make sure you can remember. In the blink of an eye they will be walking and talking so it’s important that you record your baby in their first few weeks.

The best time to arrange a newborn photography session is within one to two weeks of the birth as this is when they are at their cutest. During your newborn photography session your baby will lead the way allowing me to capture their natural movement and expression and explore the instinctive bond they have with their mum and dad.

I work on the basis of revolving the entire session around you and your baby so you don’t have to feel pressured if your baby gets upset or needs to feed. With this in mind I find the best location is usually at your own home as everything you need is at your finger tips.

Styling
Your Newborn will be photographed in a range of wraps, blankets and accessories. Take the time to consider colours and textures that may be suitable to bring along to the photography session. From my experience it’s best to keep colours neutral with a hint of colour. Subtle colours can be used with nappy covers, beanies or headbands.

Bring along accessories, wraps and blankets that you would like to include in your photography session. In addition to your choices, I will also show you some styling accessories that you may wish to incorporate.

Clothing
I recommend bringing up to three clothing options for you to choose from. Make sure your clothing is ironed and hung up on coat hangers to avoid any unsightly folds.For dads I recommend white shirts with a subtle stripe or plain dark coloured shirts. Mums could wear flowing soft or dark coloured blouses or white blouses.
