Newborns are a real treat to capture as a photographer, for starters they can’t run away from you but you just get a warm fuzzy feeling that you are documenting some of a babies first moments in life for a family, its something I love doing and will look forward to doing many more newborn shoots in the future. We are really good friends with little Izzy’s mummy and daddy and I was lucky enough to do a maternity shoot with Mummy Sarah, Sarah then asked if we would do a newborn shoot and also take a few family shots of them too. I shoot all my newborn work natural light and I knew before hand that I was going to have plenty of light available to me at their house as they have some really big windows that let plenty of light in. It was dinner time when we arrived so Sarah being Sarah made us some lunch while the rest of the family had theirs. After lunch we got our game face on and started shooting, Izzy’s older sister Sophie was in great spirits dancing and playing around in between watching a little bit of Finding Nemo so I was snapping away at her and having a blast taking pics under some chiffon which we had brought along with us. Some of the cutest newborn shots are of baby asleep but Izzy knew our game and wasn’t having any of it but what she didn’t realise was that I had a plan B, so we took the whole family upstairs to Mummy and Daddy’s bedroom to get some family shots and some of Sophie and Izzy together, these are my favourites from the day, Super Cute!!! By now Izzy was getting a little tired of the modelling for us and had decided to take a nap so we took our opportunity to get some shots of her in a wicker basket, she was in the most deliciously cute positions for us to get some great shots, we then added in some shots of her wearing a Hand crocheted pixie hat made by the very talented Mary Aitchison of Hand Crochet Babywear by Mary. One or two little accidents were had whilst Izzy was nappy-less but thats something we are always prepared for and make the family aware that its fine with us if our equipment gets a little messy, to get great shots you have to be prepared to have to do a little machine washing when you come away. Towards the end of the shoot Izzy woke up so we used the time we had left to get a few intimate shots of Daddy cuddling and playing with Izzy and also Mummy getting a big smoochy kiss from her new little girl too.
