When you are looking to book a newborn photographer it is always a good idea to look at examples of full sessions not just their favourites hand picked for their online portfolios. Whilst I hope that my website gives you a feel for my natural style and exactly what to expect, I always think it is nice to share an entire gallery every so often so you get to see an example of everything you get not just my "favourite" images that I choose to share on social media and on my website portfolios.
I have been doing this twice a year over the past few years and if you would like to see some other examples of full newborn galleries, I have copied some links at the bottom of this blog post for you.
I have chosen (with the kind agreement of his parents) this gorgeous little man for my recent example newborn gallery as they chose to have parent and baby photos too so you can see some examples of these images aswell. He was just 10 days old when he came to see me for his newborn photography session.
A lot of people think of newborn photography to be just cute curled up photos of sleepy babies. Yes this is some of what I do, but I love to see them awake too! It is my job to beautifully capture your precious little one just as they are, if they want to sleep that is great, but likewise if they are awake for their entire session that is absolutely fine too!
This lovely little man gave us both.
Although I have a large selection of beautiful, natural props here, parents sometimes choose to bring some personal items with them to their newborn photography sessions. You are more than welcome to do this, but please do check with me first if they are large items. This lovely family brought along a few special items to their session.
Mum and Dad sent me some of their favourite images over before their session, so I could incorporate the props and colours they liked during their newborn photography session.
We even managed to get a windy smile, awwwwwww.
If you choose to have parent and baby photos during your newborn photography session you will probably end up with quite a large gallery to choose your favourites from!
This is because I like to show these in colour and black and white, and where I do not show every single shot I have taken of your baby, I tend to include ALL of the parent ones as I know you will like to choose the way you look and every one has their own opinions on which photo of themselves they will like the best. As you can see here, there is quite the variety!
I would like to thank this lovely family for allowing me to share this session, and I hope they will look back on this blog in years to come ( I do not delete old blog posts) with fond memories as their gorgeous little one grows.
