Has the stork visited you recently??

April 5, 2011

I know so many people having babies or announcing their pregnancy at the moment. I am sure that my Facebook news feed has more birth announcements over the last few months than ever!

This spurred me to do a blog that not only gives a big shout of CONGRATULATIONS to all those people but also to highlight the importance of photographs during this time.

In my opinion, photographs within the first 10-14 days are crucial. Everyone wants to see just how adorable your new family member is and this is a time that baby can be moulded into all kinds of positions without any complaint. You’ve probably seen the photographs of babies doubled over, curled up on their feet or those ones where they are fast asleep in some random flower-pot or hammock. These are all taken during those first couple of weeks. Even the simple shot of baby hanging over dad’s arm can only successfully be recreated at this time.

It’s safe to say that every household has a camera and probably a digital one at that. If this is your first child, then chances are you are too worried about breaking the little bundle to be able to recreate any of the shots mentioned. This is where it pays to get a professional in. New parents are usually finding their feet one baby is home and spending time on photographs themselves or leaving the house probably is the last thing on their mind.

Like all our portrait sessions, baby portraits take place in the comfort of your own home at a pace that suits you and your baby.  A small bag of props accompanies me along with simple backdrops so you don’t even have to worry about the pile of presents/cards/balloons getting in the way of the shots.

If you are interested in booking a shoot, give me a ring (07786 300 140) to book in ASAP. If your new addition has not yet arrived but you know you want a ‘newborn shoot’ then get in touch. I will keep days clear round your due date so that the moment the little one arrives, we can easily book in your session during the first 10 days.

Don’t forget that we also do Gift Vouchers (so start dropping hints to the new grandparents!) and maternity shoots.
