Kitty's Newborn Photo Shoot | Hemel Hempstead

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.

Sebastian's mum got in touch when he was 6 days old for a last minute Newborn Photo Shoot.  I booked him in as quickly as I could and ended up taking his photos when he was just 14 days old.

The ideal time for a newborn to be photographed is between 5 & 10 days but I do offer posed photo shoots to babies up to three weeks.  I might not get as many sleepy posed photos at 3 weeks but it all depends on the baby - some still sleep like a dream!

Newborn Photos | St Albans

Everyone meet the baby with the coolest and most Italian name!  Ok, so we'll only call him Max on here, as his mum and dad may not want his whole name out for everyone to see on the internet, but you'll have to trust me on this one, he's going to have the best name at school!

I started off with some baby lead posing, which means I laid him down and just let him get comfy.  Some times it does lead to very strange poses with everything on show, but other times you get lovely natural photos like below.

Next it was on to the wraps.  I love this dark grey wrap that I got earlier this year.

You should have seen the smile on my face when mum showed me this little hat!  It's so adorable.

Ah, the fluff and grey romper combo - another firm favourite! <3

Sometimes while taking newborn photos, the conversation naturally moves onto the strangest things I ever photographed a baby with.  This is generally followed on by mum or dad handing me some kind of random object - in this case it was apples!
Although I call it random, every object always has a story.  Whether it's connected to mum or dad's job, a hobby, a nickname, it always has a special meaning that brings something thoughtful to the photo.
