Your little one is here and it’s the perfect time to capture those first, special days of your baby’s life. My style of newborn photography is relaxed, natural and designed to capture you and your new family member in your own environment where you feel most comfortable. I use very minimal posing and props, with the aim to give your photos a more natural feel. All members of your family are welcome to join in the session, including fur kids.
A Newborn Photography session is usually held when bub is up to 12 days old while they are still quite sleepy, but is also fine for older babies.
Preparing for your newborn photography session
To prepare for your session all you need to do is clear away any clutter such as TV remotes, newspapers, etc and be dressed in something comfortable. Light colours work best and don’t try to have everyone matching. Bub can be dressed in a simple plain onesie for the start of the session.
What to expect during a Newcastle newborn photography session
The best time to start your session is just after a feed when bub is settled and sleepy. If they don’t want to sleep, that’s fine. Some awake and sleepy photos are a good combination for a lifestyle session.
I will start by getting some shots of bub snuggled with mum or dad and then once bub is asleep I like to take some shots of your little one on mum & dad’s bed. I will bring a few wraps, headbands and blankets to your session for the photos of bub. You are welcome to incorporate items which are sentimental or special to your family into your photos.
Your session will finish up with more relaxed lifestyle shots in bub’s room and the living areas of your home. If there are any shots you would like me to capture, just let me know.
