This gorgeous baby boy was just one week old when he visited me for a newborn photography session in March. There’s something so special about being a newborn photographer, that’s difficult to describe. The first weeks of a baby’s life are so life changing for parents, and siblings, and to be part of that time, and present to document it is a real privilege. Because the sessions tend to be slightly longer, I also get lots of time to chat to the parents and get to know them, which is really lovely.
There’s a small window of time when it’s ideal to photograph newborns – usually in the first 6-10 days of their life. Most of the time we don’t know exactly when baby will arrive, so when a client books a newborn session we won’t set a firm date. Instead I ask them to contact me as soon as possible after their baby is born, so that we can set a date within this ideal timeframe. For this reason, I only book a limited number of newborn sessions each month, and keep lots of flexibility in my diary to accommodate them.
I’ve put together a few of my favourites from this session in this post, and I hope you enjoy looking through them.
