Lifestyle newborn photos in Essex & Herts
That newborn stage is so precious & fleeting. The endless hours of cuddles, feeds & that new parent daze! It's those moments of having a newborn that I think are so important to capture and its why my newborn sessions take place in your own home. Minimal posing, lots of cuddles and a focus on your new family as a whole is what makes my sessions unique and so very special. Sessions last around 2 hours, and are fully led by baby so feeding cuddling & rocking continues as normal and I'm just there to photograph it. I have been photographing new families for over 5 years so I will make sure to get all those little details for you while you just love on your baby. All you need to do is just relax & be together.
Tips ahead of your shoot
- Book in early, lifestyle photography means we're not relying on being able to get baby in to a deep sleep to pose them so your window for photos is much larger but I'd suggest up to 6 weeks so they still have all those little new features.
- When thinking about clothing, try to stick to a similar colour palette between all of you. Choose clothing that makes you feel comfortable and at ease, for baby if you'd like outfit changes try to plan outfits that are easy to pop on and off (buttons up the back of an outfit always makes for a super grumpy baby!)
- Your hands will feature a lot as you hold baby so moisturise and think about your nails, no polish at all is better than chipped nail polish.
- I'm a natural light photographer primarily so any spots next to large windows will be my go to, you absolutely don't need to go round blitzing your house before I arrive but just decluttering the sofa areas & your bed for example will save us time on the day.
- If you have older siblings, prep them an activity they can do in their rooms or elsewhere when they get bored. This way we can make use of that time to focus on the new arrival without siblings feeling pushed out.
