Adhiya's Newborn Photo Shoot | Hemel Hempstead

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.

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!)

Darcie's Newborn Photo Shoot | Hemel Hempstead

I first met the lovely Montgomery family back in 2015 when they were expecting their first son, George.  We've done Maternity, Newborn, Christmas, 6 month & 1 year shoots together and it's been really great getting to know them and watching little George grow up. 

When they got in touch to let me know they were expecting baby number 2 I was very excited!  We discussed everything they wanted from this next newborn shoot and counted down the days till her arrival.

Logan's Newborn Photo Shoot | Hemel Hempstead

Logan's mum first got in touch about a month before her due date to book in her Newborn Photo Shoot.  We discussed everything she liked and didn't like and booked her in for around a week after she was due. 

Logan, it seems, had other plans though as he arrived almost 4 weeks early!  He had to stay at Luton and Dunstable Hospital for around a month so we kept pushing his shoot date back until he was given the all clear and was able to go home.

What to Wear to your Newborn Photo Shoot

What to Wear to your Newborn Photo Shoot

A common question I get asked is - What should I wear to my newborn photo shoot?

Firstly, if you're not having photos taken you can wear what ever you like!  You are very much very welcome in your pyjamas if that's what makes you happy.  If anyone has anything negative to say about that, point to your newborn baby and carry on.

Spence's Newborn Photo Shoot | Hitchin

Spence's Newborn Photo Shoot | Hitchin

A few weeks ago I travelled to Spence's house in Hitchin for his Newborn Photo Shoot.  

His mum had had a C-section and was unable to travel to me so I hopped in my car and went to them instead.
When I arrived, the house was nice and warm and ready for me to set up in their living room.  

People always worry that their houses won't be big enough when I travel, but usually any living room space is fine.  I may have to move a table or close a curtain but I'm pretty adaptable!

Poppy's Newborn Photo Shoot | Hemel Hempstead

Poppy's Newborn Photo Shoot | Hemel Hempstead

Little Poppy came from Berkhamsted for her newborn shoot when she was 10 days old.

And when I say little, I really mean it.  She was born at Luton & Dunstable Hospital at 35 weeks and weighed just 5.5lb. 

She was the perfect little sleeper but my goodness did she like a good wriggle!  I would get her into position, let her get comfy, and then we were good to go....until she decided it was time to wriggle again!

Newborn Photo Shoot | Hemel Hempstead | Lylah

Everyone meet Lylah.  This gorgeous little thing was towards the older end of the timescale that I offer newborn photo shoots so she was on the wriggly side!
My main aim for her session was to get some beautiful images with her mum as well as some images in props.

Newborn Baby Photoshoot | Hemel Hempstead | Lachlan

Meet little Lachlan, the most gorgeous little boy with a genuinely lovely family. 

When I first heard that the family wanted an Irish, Rugby, Autumn themed newborn baby photoshoot I've got to say, I wasn't quite sure how I was going to get it all to work together.
Of course the only real answer was to go shopping!

Newborn Photography | Hemel Hempstead | Joshua

A few weeks ago Joshua and his family came to my house in Hemel Hempstead for their newborn photography session. 
This little guy was a completely dream to work with and I got some beautiful images. 

As usual, I started with wrapped images to get him into that super sleepy mood. 
I can get three really lovely shots from the pose below - his whole body, his feet and a close up of his face. 

I think we should take a second to appreciate his amazing hair.  I LOVE it! 

After we'd finished on the plainer blankets, it was time to get out the fluff!
He snuggled into the posing bowl perfectly and even flashed a cheeky smily :)

His mum decided to leave Joshua's big brother at home with his dad for first part of the session and then bring him round when we were ready for him.  This meant he was ready and raring to go when it came time for sibling photos. 
Joshua had started to wake up a little at this point so I wrapped him up snug and made sure he was ready for some big brother love.

I LOVE this family photo.  So much in fact that I have used it in a sample product for my Reveal Sessions and gifted them a HUGE print of it. 
As much as it may look like they're sitting there nicely together, much running and playing was required to get that bottom in mums lap! 
It was a million percent worth it for the result :)

Newborn Baby Pictures | Amersham

Another day, another opportunity to take some beautiful newborn baby pictures!

This little girl was a fighter to start off with, determined to stay awake!  I got some gorgeous shot of her eyes open and then wrapped her up nice and snuggled in the 'potato sack' wrap (my sleep inducing weapon of choice when it comes to awake newborns!).

Soon she had drifted off to sleep and the super cute posing could begin!

Tummy pose is my absolute favourite!  Not only do all babies look super comfy and peaceful in this pose, it's also the best pose for hats and headbands. 

This newborn hat came in a set of 2 for twins but I love using them separately for both boys and girls.  If you don't like the heart I just turn it out and suddenly it's a plain hat :p

From her tummy I moved her more onto her side and added a little dainty headband.  I LOVE this headband but it's started to fall apart since (probably because I use it so much!) so I'm definitely going to be replacing it.

Next it was time for fluff.  She curled up so effortlessly and was definitely super comfy.

When mum mentioned she wanted a photo of their little one and their hands, my head went straight to this classic shot.  It was the first time I had tried it and I was really excited.  We put dad's hand on the left and mum's on the right and I think it came out really well.

**May 2016 Update**

I recently ordered new product samples and ordered the above photo in a Fine Art Float Frame.  Look how gorgeous it looks in this black frame - definitely a favourite picture of mine!
