Jack came from Chesham for his newborn pictures when he was just a couple of weeks old.
For the most part he was nice and sleepy but even when he was awake he made amazing eye contact with the camera and was very content.
We started with pictures with his big brother who although was a little hesitant in front of the camera at first, soon settled onto my fluffy blanket and snuggled up to his baby brother.
Look at that peaceful little face! He was so comfortable being all wrapped up.
Once unwrapped, Jack decided it was time to be awake for a little while, although as you see, it was a struggle to keep his eyes open at some points!
With a little bit of milk and some cuddles, he soon drifted off to sleep and the gentle posing could begin.
Just look at this adorable little baby! His cheeks are to die for.
I love ending a newborn photo shoot on this white, fluffy blanket. If a baby wakes up, it’s a nice opportunity for some simple, unposed images on a nice clean background that leaves all the focus on them.
And if they stay asleep, they look angelic against the white.
No newborn photo shoot is complete without capturing those all important detail pictures. Those tiny toes and little hands that stay small for such a short amount of time.
Jack’s parents had a special request when then filled out their booking form. His dad is really into bikes and cars and they asked to bring a helmet to pose him in. Although I can never guarantee I can get photos like this, I am always up for the challenge!
The helmet itself was way to small and unstable to actually fit Jack inside so instead I did a composite image. That is when I take two images and edit them together as one. I took one photo of the helmet and one photo of Jack, safely on my posing beanbag. I’m really happy with the result and mum and dad loved it to!
It was a pleasure meet you little Jack. I hope I get to photograph you again in the future!
