Don't worry if your house is a mess. I'm photographing you and your baby, not your house!
MATERNITY & NEWBORN
A new baby is such an incredibly exciting and life changing moment in your life. From gazing at their little hands and feet, to wondering how on earth you're going to care for you're new bundle, it's hard to take in all the emotions.
Pregnancy itself is a special time, whether you embrace your new body or not! 9 months can go by incredibly quickly and at the time, you're too busy trying to organise things that you don't get a chance to really see how you're body is changing. I can create some beautifully natural images of you and your bump (on your own and/or with partner) in the comfort of your own home, or you can choose an outside location.
Newborns are ideally photographed when they are under 2 weeks old and your home is most likely the best place for the session when they are this young. Familiar surroundings and home comforts will put both you and your little one at ease. Please don't worry if your house is a tip - I know what it's like with a new baby!
When photographing your newborn I believe that simple is best, therefore shots aren't too contrived or posed. I like to use daylight wherever possible. There is no better light to show off their tiny features in intricate detail. Many of the shots will be candid in style and my approach is friendly and relaxed. I will very much run with how your baby is feeling and behaving. I allow up to 3 hours because there will be the need for nappy changes, feeds and breaks.
Partners, husbands, brothers and sisters are all encouraged to get involved too! Capturing the excitement of a new addition through other family members is just as important in my eyes.
