I’ve been meeting lots of new babies recently and wow there’s nothing like meeting a new little person and seeing them smile whilst their very proud parents look on.
On a recent shoot I revisited a couple whose wedding I’d photographed a few years back who had recently been blessed with the arrival of a baby daughter.
Baby photography at home is often a good idea particularly if baby isn’t feeling in the mood straight off the bat as was the case on this occasion. It helps to have both parents and baby in a familiar environment with everything easily to hand particularly if the baby isn’t quite feeling him or herself.
On this occasion it took quite a few feeds, a little sleep and dad and the photographer to nip out to get some lunch before baby felt truly ready for the camera and settled enough to give us a period of calm curiosity perfect for photographs. Despite lots of toys and other items being used to attract baby’s attention, today a humble packet of crisps rattled back and forth was the key to this little lady’s heart.
It was great to catch up with a lovely couple and to see them as a new family, I hope you like some of the photographs from the session.
