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 beautiful blankets and my props we got a fabulous selection of photographs from their session.
Another bonus of having a newborn session at your home is being able to capture some natural light photographs for you. These feel a lot different to the studio portraits 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 large studio in Richmond, West London.
It offers a truly relaxed atmosphere with a comfortable sofa, a plate of biscuits on offer. I have a large selection of organic teas, a Nespresso coffee machine and mineral water to keep you hydrated while I photograph your baby. Did I forgot to mention that there is a baby changing station, a feeding pillow and a dressing gown for your use.
