I feel truly privileged to be invited into a family’s home when a new baby has arrived to capture a snippet of life during such a precious time. I have been photographing newborns for 6 years now and while I have always described my style as natural (I’ve always avoided props and posing), my favourite photos have always been the ones which capture the ‘real’ and it is exactly that which is my main focus during every shoot.
I loved meeting little Breagha, her loving big sister Ella May and her lovely parents in their home in Edinburgh a couple of weeks ago. The session was very relaxed, with games and stories for Ella May and feeds and cuddles for her little sister. Ella May is so loving and I was delighted to be able to capture all of the kisses and cuddles. Here are a few of my favourites from the session.
