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.

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.

Everything you could ever need to know about your Newborn Photo Shoot

Everything you could ever need to know about your Newborn Photo Shoot

If you're like me, you like to plan everything down to the detail. 

I have check lists of things to take places, routes (and back up routes) of where I am going and will leave with enough time to spare that it's highly likely that I will be early. 
I'd much rather sit in my car and wait for an appointment than worry about being late (or even worse, actually be late)

If you're even a little bit like me, then this blog is just for you. 

The aim of this blog is to answer any question you may ever have about every stage of your newborn shoot - from booking to purchasing your images.
