A Smiley 2 Month Old Photo Shoot | Hemel Hempstead | Emily

Emily came to me from Dunstable for her newborn photo shoot. 

Her mum had received a gift voucher from a friend and although Emily was a little old for sleepy posed images, we did a similar style photo shoot with her awake. 
She wanted a very natural shoot with no headbands or hats so I kept things very neutral and simple, changing out the backdrops for variety. 

I mainly photograph newborns naked, using posing, wraps and blankets to cover their modesty as that's the best way to show off all those newborn wrinkles and rolls. 

If you have an outfit that means something to you though, I'm more than happy to include it in a few of your images. 

Emily's mum brought along this sleep suit, so I started her photo shoot with a few simple images on a cream fluffy blanket.

Emily is one of the smiliest 2 month olds I have ever photographed!

All I had to do was speak to her and she'd break out into the most gorgeous smile.  Her face was full of expression the entire photo shoot.

I adore back lit, black and white photos.  The way the light is illuminating her profile is just gorgeous!

Time for a little bit of colour and to give those legs room to kick!  Just check out those cheeks.

It's all in the detail...

Even at 2 months, it's unlikely to go an entire photo shoot without a baby drifting off to sleep for just a few minutes, even if they wake as soon as they are moved. 
I took this opportunity with Emily to capture all of those tiny details.  It's so much easier to do when babies are asleep and not wriggling their limbs all over the place!

SWOON.  I love this picture.  I'm not sure if it's those chubby cheeks, the hand to her mouth or the way her legs are in the air but it's one of my favourite from her photo shoot.

To end the shoot she cuddled up to her teddy comforter before a big yawn and calling it a day.

Album delivery day!

Emily's mum bought two Portrait Albums from her photoshoot, both with an 'Ocean' coloured linen cover. 
She selected her favourite 20 - 30 images and I designed a proof for her.  She then made as many changes as she liked and once she was in love, I sent them off to be made. 

My favourite part of product delivery day was seeing that gorgeous smile again!!
