Welcome to the world! A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing a beautiful 6 day old baby girl.

The photo session took place at their family home and her proud mum and dad seemed to have settle into parenthood quite comfortably. Although their baby girl took a while to settle for the photos, once she did go to sleep she was in a deep sleep which allowed us to change hats and headbands for the photos.

When I photograph newborn babies, I always allow plenty of time as it’s impossible to predict how long they will take to settle and, if it does take a while, this is never a concern for me.

Her slightly older cousin popped a long during the photo session for a quick photo too so I’ve added a photo of her at the end of the blog post.

If you are interested in booking a newborn photo session, I recommend that these are booked in advance working with your due date and, if necessary, we can rearrange it if your baby arrives early or late.

Please contact me via my website contact form or by telephone on 07977 499473.

As always, your comments are welcome and if you would like to share the post on your Facebook page, please do so. Please remember, however, you are not allowed to copy or save any of the images featured on my blog or website. Thank you x
