Baby Neve’s Newborn Session
Hello and welcome to the blog! I thought I’d start writing the occasional blog about photography sessions that have taken place in my studio. For this first ever such post, I’d like to welcome the very beautiful baby Neve, who was 5 weeks old for her photo session.
I discussed the styling and colours with Jayne, her mummy, and she wanted to go for whites and creams; which showed off the creamy tones of her skin perfectly. The colours also went well with the decor inside the family home. This is something I always ask my clients to think about when choosing the colours they would like their baby to be photographed with, especially as they are likely to display some images from the photo shoot on their walls.
Neve was older than most of the newborn babies I photograph, and this was the choice of her parents. They didn’t want a ‘typical’ sleepy newborn session, but wanted her to be more alert, awake, and posing as she would do naturally. I managed to get lots of shots with her alert, happy, and interacting with the camera, but once I placed her inside one of my favourite props – a wooden driftwood bowl – she fell fast asleep!
The shoot went very well and Neve’s parents were really happy with the images 🙂 I can’t wait to see baby Neve grow older, and hopefully photograph her again in the future! I’ll leave you now with one of my very favourite images from this photo session…
