Speaking as a mum I know that being a parent to a newborn is both wonderful and tiring so I make it my job to capture your baby’s beautiful little features in a relaxed and stress free environment. The photography session is likely to last between 1 and 3 hours depending on breaks for feeds and changes and can take place in your own home or in my home in Edinburgh- whatever you prefer.
If you want to capture that ‘new look’ then it’s best to arrange your newborn photography session for when your baby is between 5 and 14 days old. Don’t worry if your baby is older than this though, many parents prefer to have photos taken when their baby is more alert and likely to give us a smile. I aim for a bit of variety and try to get some photos while your baby is awake and some while he/she is sleeping.
It is a good idea to give your baby a feed shortly before the shoot is due to take place but don’t worry, I am happy to take breaks during the shoot if your baby needs a feed and a cuddle.
I recommend that Mum and Dad wear plain black or white with bare arms if possible. Bare looks great for a skin-on-skin look and patterns and bright colours can distract from the main focus of the picture – your beautiful baby.
Further examples of my Edinburgh newborn photography can be found in the baby portfolio section of my website.
