One of the things I love about newborn photography is that I get to meet not just little babies but their lovely families too. I feel honoured that parents come to me with their new arrivals. It’s so lovely to chat to mums and dads, and to see them interact with their little one’s.
I already felt like I knew Charlotte, Alexander’s mummy, from her writing over at musingmum.co.uk. Charlotte’s funny, refreshingly honest writing focuses on parenting, feminism and general equality. If you haven’t read her blog before, go check it out!
Alexander was a pleasure to photograph. When thinking about having a newborn photography session, some people worry their baby may not sleep, that not all baby’s are “good”. In truth, there is no such thing as a “good” baby. All babies cry, it’s how they communicate, and all babies are a different. It’s my job to help them get as comfortable as possible, so when they get sleepy they are ready to drift off. Alexander loved being swaddled in a wrap. He had a lovely deep sleep safely tucked up in a little crate. He looked so snugly I didn’t want to move him.
If you’d like to book your own newborn portrait session, contact me now to book your space. Newborn images need to be taken in the first two weeks after baby is born, therefore it is important to book when you are in your third trimester to ensure I have a space available to you.
