Newborn sessions

MY SHOOTING STYLE

There are generally two types of newborn photographers.  
The first, who adopt perhaps the most well-known style, are talented with using props, backdrops, and posing a baby into adorable sleepy positions while using more of a portrait approach to the session.  

The second, like me, do not pose the baby and rather adopt a lifestyle approach, using the baby’s family and home as a backdrop to create timeless keepsakes.  

Both styles appeal to different clients, both camps of photographers have spent many hours and investment in studying and honing their skill, and both are excellent at what they do. I have several friends whose work I admire and am happy to refer to when I know a more posed style is wanted by a potential client.

For me though, it’s simple. No props, backdrops or outfits. It’s just you and your baby.
Whilst family sessions most often produce images that stand alone in their own right, Newborn Lifestyle sessions are best portrayed by telling a story…
They can include one or even multiple brand new human souls, each with already very different personalities, delighted siblings and grandparents, a proud Dad helping with feeds, and of course the tiny details.

The pros of this style are that I flow with the family – if baby is cranky or needs a feed, we don’t have to be there for hours sweating over whether baby will settle or not. You are left with images filled with genuine emotion and connection, which allow you to reflect over what that babymoon period really felt like.

YOUR NEWBORN SESSION

What can you expect?

My newborn sessions aim to create a carefree, fun experience that will bring out the best in you and your family, capturing the true essence of those first few weeks together, resulting in photographs that are unique and personal which you would be proud to display in your home.
I photograph with a relaxed and natural lifestyle approach, which is less about posed portraiture, and more about capturing candid moments and REAL connections.

If you have a moment to spare, take a quick peek at what you can expect from a real Newborn session here.

Weekday sessions are a popular choice for newborn shoots, purely because dads tend to take a little time off once baby is born.
