Putney Newborn Photography | A Newborn Photo Shoot At My South West London Studio
It is always such an honour to capture the precious early days for families who have a new baby, and I’m delighted to share some of the highlights from this baby boy’s photo shoot with you today.
This shoot took place at my South West London studio, which is close to Hampton Court and around a 25 minute drive from Putney.
The Best Age For A Newborn Photo Shoot
This baby boy was 12 days old for his newborn photo shoot, which is the ideal age for posed newborn photography. Typically I schedule sessions for when a baby is aged between 5 and 14 days old. During this window new babies usually spend long periods of time asleep, and enjoy being curled up in womb-like positions. This means that they are likely to be relaxed and settled through the shoot.
Whilst I’m photographing baby it’s really important to me that parents feel comfortable and relaxed – after all having a new baby can be very tiring! My studio is warm, comfortable and has everything I need to safely photograph each baby and family. With a selection of organic teas and coffee, snacks, baby change, feeding pillows, and organic toiletries on hand I aim to make sure that every family has a relaxed, comfortable experience.
Choosing Colours For The Newborn Session
At the studio I have a large selection of blankets and wraps in soft, neutral tones. And before each session I’ll work with the family to choose a colour theme that fits their style, and complements their home decor should they choose to display the pictures on the wall.
For this baby’s session his parents chose a white colour theme which I think worked beautifully.
I process each photograph from my studio sessions in colour and black and white, and you can see some examples of each in this post.
