I have had a really nice variety of work this summer. Family photography sessions, pet photography, christnening photography and quite a few newborn sessions in London and Surrey.
My approach when photographing newborn babies is to allow plenty of time for photography and to keep things as relaxed as possible for both the parents and the baby. I give gentle direction when it comes to posing, mainly to position clients where the good light is, where to stand, look or hold their hands. Over the years, I found that this level of direction-giving produces more natural and candid looking photographs. I am able to capture a special look, a little touch, a private moment whilst maintaining natural looking body language which fits the mood of the photograph.
Photos below are from a recent newborn photoshoot in Epsom, Surrey. This was one of my favourite recent newborn photoshoots, as the baby was awake and alert for most of the time, it was engaged and it made the cutest little sounds when swaddled! I also enjoyed experimenting with family poses a bit more which produced some lovely shots of the new family. Finally, this photo session was for return clients of mine - I did a couples photo session, and a post wedding photo session for Paulina and Chris before, so it was great to catch up and see their family grow.
As a newborn photographer, I work across Surrey and London photographing babies and their families. Often this is to mark the arrival of the first or the second baby into the family, but occasionally my clients want me to photograph the extended family meeting the new arrival. If you or your partner are expecting a baby, and are thinking of documenting this special time in your life with a set of beautiful, fine art newborn photographs, please contact me to discuss your ideas. I would be dlighted to capture this special time for you!
