This is Effy who came to visit with her mum for her newborn photos, later being joined by her brother and sister for some family pictures at the end of the session.  She was quite a lively little person for the first part of her session but a combination of feeding, cuddling and pretty much anything else that we could think of and we got her settled beautifully to capture some sleepy shots.

We had plenty of time then to capture with lots of accessories, poses and backdrops including some very pretty pastels but I’m really enjoying these bolder black background / low-key shots.  It’s not something I’ve historically done a lot of but I love the results so much that I’ll definitely be revisiting this look in future sessions.
