It was a joy to catch up with this family again after photographing their wedding a few years ago. They’d actually had another baby before this one but they missed out on newborn photography after an extended hospital stay which made it extra special to have them come and visit with their newest family member.
The day before your session, I send over a link to a form that allows you to let me know the kind of photos that you’re looking for – you can tell me about the colours that you like, the props you’d like to use and if you’d like to include a digital backdrop in your image gallery. Of course, all newborn photography is led by your baby and so it’s not a menu selection but having this gives me a great idea of the type of shots you want and we work to get as much choice as we can. In this case, their mum had selected for me to use a palette of neutral tones in creams and browns and I was more than happy to oblige – I love the clean and neutral look it creates and totally allows the images to focus on the baby.
It also gave me the perfect excuse to use my wooden LOVE letters for the first time and I adore how they photograph!
