Baby Photos | Milton Keynes

It was an absolute pleasure to go and capture some baby photos for this family a few weeks ago.  You can see from the images what a happy and loving family they are! 

My pink tutu came out to play for this session as her mum liked lots of girly things.  I also think this may be the most outfit changes I've had in one session before!

As usual we started on my favourite place to photograph babies - the bed.  It wasn't long before the dog, mum and dad got in on the photos for some cuddles and giggles as well.

I just love the three images below.  Images like this are perfect to include in an album or in a triple frame.

There was some beautiful natural light coming into their living room window, which I of course had to make the most of to give a gorgeous bright background.

No session is complete without an image of the sleepy dog :)  This cutie enjoyed sleeping with her eyes open and snoring loudly!!!

My fluffy blanket goes with me everywhere.  It's great for getting both slightly more studio style photos as well as just being laid on the floor for some extra comfort in some lifestyle images.

***May 2016 Update***

I loved the images from this session so much that I decided to use them in my sample portrait album.  Take a quick look at the video to see the amazing quality of the album and how great the images look when printed.

Newborn photo shoot : Lucas

Remember my old friends bump shoot from a couple of months ago?  You know, the incredibly cute one with the little boy holding his tummy to his mummy's baby bump?

Well just after Christmas I got to go and welcome baby Lucas into the world!  

My sat nav is apparently not such a fan of Milton Keynes (or I'm starting to think directing as a whole) because I must have done about 3 laps of the midlands before I got there. 

As soon as I walked in the door I was treated to some lovely cuddles and then it was time to work!

I set up my beanbag & blankets in their kitchen because their patio doors gave me the best light. 

Newborn shoots usually take play within the first 5 - 10 days after a baby is born while they are still super sleepy and foldable.  Every now and then a baby may have to stay in hospital for a bit longer or life just gets a bit hectic for the family (in this case Christmas!) and the shoot is pushed back a little. 

Lucas was about 3 weeks old when I did his shoot, which meant he was past the newborn sleepy & foldable stage and was a bit more aware of his surroundings.  All this means is that I approach the shoot a little differently, taking more relaxed rather than posed photos. 

I started with him fully dressed and then slowly stripped him down adding hats and blankets along the way to get a variety of shots.   I then took some photos with his proud big brother Jack and some family shots to finish shoot.

Hopefully I'll get to go back and take some more photos of Lucas as he grows when I go and visit his mummy and daddy in the future :)
