It was an absolute joy to photograph Claire and her newborn back in November. Stanley was just 7 weeks old and was a complete dream to work with. The camera didn’t faze him at all and he was the perfect model baby on the day. Newborn shoots are one of my favourites. It’s such an exciting and precious time and of course I get to have a little cuddle which is always a bonus!
I love to photograph babies in their home environment as it means I’m able to capture those beautiful candid moments in a place that feels relaxed and natural for both the baby and the parents. And a happy baby means a happy mum!
The secret to getting the best photographs is to just let them be and this can take time. Babies have their own timetable and I’m totally happy to roll with whatever that timetable is. The ability to just hang with families as they go about their everyday is something I treasure. Hopefully you can see from these images below just how much fun I had spending time with them both.
