Newborn photography session at client's home in Chelsea, London.
What are the advantages of having a newborn photography session at your home? Needless to say some deliveries are difficult and many mums have c-sections or complicated deliveries which require a lot of stitches.
Some would like to have a newborn photography session but find the thought of travelling in a car just too daunting. Add to that trying to pack all the necessary clothing, nappies, a soother, make-up and you find that after many sleepless nights, things do get left behind. I've had one lovely couple arrive and as they settled down to feed the baby, mum suddenly says to the dad ‘You did take the baby’s bag into which I packed all the clothes for the shoot?’. He replied – ‘But I thought that you took it?’. As they travelled for over an hour to get to my studio, going back home was not an option. Luckily newborns look great in their birthday suit and with a help of sweet blankets and my props we still got a fabulous selection of photographs from their session.
Another bonus is having some natural light photographs taken at the same time. These feel a lot different to the studio lighting and tend to look superb in black and white.
If you have a reasonable space in your living room for me to set up a couple of lights and the all important beanbag on which your baby lies, then we are ready to shoot your newborn’s first professional photography session in the comfort of your own home! Perhaps you prefer lifestyle images where I utilize natural light or maybe black and white photographs are your favourite? I try to be as versatile as possible and shoot in different styles to give you the best selection of images from your shoot.
For those who feel they don’t have enough space in their home or just prefer to have the full studio photography experience, I recommend coming over to my comfortable studio in Ealing. It overlooks a park and offers a truly relaxed atmosphere with a comfortable sofa and a large armchair to sink into, a plate of biscuits on offer and a selection of organic teas, a Nespresso coffee or bottled water to be enjoyed while I photograph your baby. Did I forgot to mention that there is a baby changing mat, a feeding pillow, a dressing gown and an interesting selection of magazines to browse through too?!
Whether you choose me to photograph your baby at home or at her studio, you'll be able to view and share your images from an online gallery with your family and friends within few days of your session.
