Newborn Girl Portraits | Pearl

Little Pearl came to me from Dunstable for her Newborn Portraits earlier this year.

After arriving just a couple of days early, her shoot took places on its planned date, which is almost unheard of! I would say around 90% of the babies I photograph come either early or late so I move their shoot date depending on when they arrive.


To start with, I wrapped Pearl up and we did family photos with her mum and dad together as well as seperately. She loved being snuggled up and fell asleep straight away.

After parent photos, it was on to large props. I chose a lovely earthy brown setup in my dark wooden crate and made it lovely and comfortable for her on some fluffy blankets.

From there I set up my posing beanbag, which is a large round bean bag covered in a layers of blankets. Layering the blankets means I can easily transition from one to another without having to disturb her while she sleeps.

Ah, I love it when a newborn smiles! And if you’re hugging a bunny at the time - well that’s like winning the photo lottery!

It’s always great to include personal items in a newborn photo shoot. Some people bring teddies, other blankets - some random things like golf balls and bike helmets! Pearls family brought this lovely little elephant.

Details, details, details! Those little things that will change oh so quickly.

Thank you for letting me photograph you Pearl. You were a perfect little sleeper and are welcome back any time.

Cute Baby Photos Hemel Hempstead | 2 Month Old Ben

Cute Baby Photos Hemel Hempstead | 2 Month Old Ben

When 2 month old Ben first came in for his photo shoot he was not having a good day.

Rather than keep pushing him on a day he obviously wasn’t up for it, I got a few photos and then called it a day. I’d rather babies come back when they’re feeling 100% rather than move them around lots on days when they aren’t feeling well.

Nobody takes cute baby photos like an 6 month old!

And there is no better proof of that than little Ralph.

Ralph came in for his Baby Photo Shoot when he was 6 months old. His family had been bought a gift voucher and they decided to put it towards some lovely cute baby photos of him along with a few family photos.

Dev's Newborn Photo Shoot | Hemel Hempstead

A few weeks ago, little Dev came to me in Hemel Hempstead from Luton for his newborn photo shoot with his mum, dad and big brother.

He had arrived 4 weeks early, and was so smiley. He also made lots of cute noises, specially after he sneezed and had the most amazing hair!
He was teeny tiny but when he stretched out, my goodness was he long!

Adhiya's Newborn Photo Shoot | Hemel Hempstead

When Adhiya’s family booked her Newborn Photo Shoot they said that they would like awake photos that captured her personality.

Of course once they said that I was expecting the worlds sleepiest baby to turn up that I couldn’t keep awake, but she was in fact the perfect awake model that her mum and dad had been hoping for.

My Favourite Newborn Photos From 2018

My Favourite Newborn Photos From 2018

As always, it’s just crazy that a whole year has past and another group of newborns have come through my door for their Newborn Photo Shoot.

Looking back through the images, some seem like forever ago and some like yesterday. It’s crazy to think that some of these babies will be turning 1 in a few weeks.

Kitty's Newborn Photo Shoot | Hemel Hempstead

I first met Kitty’s family back in 2015 when I did a Newborn Photo Shoot for her big sister Grace in St. Albans.

I’m getting so many siblings come through my door right now and I am always so excited to receive their emails letting me know they’re expecting baby number two or three.

When Kitty’s mum got in touch she was already a few days old so I booked her in nice and quick so we didn’t miss those first sleepy 5 - 10 days.

Elise's Newborn Photo Shoot | Hemel Hempstead

Newborn Elise came to my house in Hemel Hempstead for her Photo Shoot a few weeks ago and was the perfect little model.

She loved to be wrapped but wasn’t a fan of being on her tummy so I kept her where she was happiest, on her back and her side. Not all newborns like all positions and I never force them into a position that they aren’t happy with (I can tell by the wriggling!)
