Newborn Photography has taken me on a wild ride! When I first started photography 3 years ago I was asked to photograph my first newborn for a client, I remember I was so nervous, we came away with some beautiful images but not at all what I would have imagined! Oh how un-prepared I was for just how difficult newborn photography can be.
During most of my sessions parents will often comment on how patient I am with their sweet babe, I have to be patient with her, she is the star of the show! Your baby runs my sessions, I follow her cues, we stop for her feeding, burping, pooping and crying breaks.
However un-prepared I was for the difficulty of newborn sessions I was equally if not more un-unprepared for the reward of the finished product! I love nothing more than seeing an image come together. I love spending time preparing images in my head, planning the set up, building props and making outfits to compliment each baby, I love the simplicity of the images that are nothing but a perfectly curled up sleeping baby... I have fallen in love with newborn photography and I wasn't prepared for it at all <3
Here are some of my favourite newborn images from the last few sessions, Enjoy!
