Albie was the perfect little model at his newborn photo shoot a couple of weeks ago. He slept from the get go and pretty much stayed that way the entire shoot!
To start things off I used a lovely cream fluffy blanket. You'll have to trust me on this but it is SO soft! No wonder babies sleep so well on it.
I laid him down and got some natural photos while he got comfy and then when he was in a nice deep sleep I wrapped him up in a dark grey wrap.
Also, check out the amazing mohican!
Check out the cheeky little smile I caught as he drifted off into a deeper sleep!
After being wrapped up, I moved onto my favourite light grey backdrop for some sleepy posed photos.
The side pose is a great pose to include any little toys you might have. If you don't have any, I have a selection of little teddies to choose from - and a little plastic robot that I am dieing to use!
From his side, we moved onto his tummy and yes, I of course had to get a picture with the bear ears hat!
I don't get to use the 'head on hands' pose (on the left) in every photo shoot because not all babies like it (i'd never force a baby into a pose they didn't want to do) Alfie on the other hand seemed quite happy and comfy!
Check out his rolls and chubby arms on the image on the right. This little guy was 9lb 12oz when he was born but I don't where he's hiding it!
Ah, of course - the details. All those tiny things that will have double in size before you know it. Everything from the hair on the back of the ears, the wrinkly feet, the tiny fingers and milk spotted nose - I love it all!
I tried to take some photos in my wooden bowl at the end of the session but by this point Albie was wide awake and having none of it!
Instead, we went with awake photos instead which I AM NOT sad about because look at those eyes!!!
