Being a new mom is great, and when your good friends have babies too, it makes it even better.
My friend Ashley gave birth to baby Blake about 4 weeks before I had Layla. So as a gift I offered to capture some moments of the two of them together, because babies really do change everyday right before your very eyes. This was my first time photographing a newborn, (Layla doesn’t really count, does she?)
As this was a quick session, maybe 40 minutes in all, I’m pleased that we managed to get a nice variety of shots. The photos came out great and Blake was a real sweetheart the whole entire time.
I now realise the extraordinary effort newborn photographers go to to make those fab shots you see seem effortless. A Boppy or 2 is definitely needed for propping up babies.
I would love to hear your thoughts, If you would like me to photograph your newborn, please drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
