What a little poppet this newborn baby boy was - as indeed they all are! I am so lucky working with newborn babies.
I came to the home of this family in Mitcham where his parents wanted a variety of posed photos and had a range of outfits and props. We began with this boy in a little bear hat with matching sleeping pouch, which I then added into a digital background later when editing the photos.
They loved the baby in a bucket photos, so we also did this set up.
They also wanted to get a basket shot.
Using a black background works so well for baby photography.
We then focussed on getting photos with mummy and daddy.

This adorable baby was so calm throughout his photo shoot. I came to the family home in Dulwich and, as the parents wanted a number of more 'posed' newborn photos, we swaddled up this gorgeous bundle and photographed him in a number of different poses.
We then got a wide range of family photos.

This session had been bought as a gift to this family. They had recently had a baby girl (two months old at the time of the photos shoot) and also had a four year old daughter.
We started the photo shoot in the sitting room with the family and capturing a range of relaxed, natural images - a great time for a four year old girl to show off too!
With the bright, texture of the sofa, this was a great place to photograph the baby girl.
We then headed up to a bedroom. A double bed makes a great place to photograph babies, children and families. The love and kisses that big sister had for her new sibling was very much on show and great to photograph!
But she didn't leave mummy and daddy out either!
We also got plenty of close up details of this baby - so precious!

I was contacted by the parents of this adorable boy in order to get some photos of their son. He was six weeks old when we did the baby photo shoot, so passed the classic newborn age in terms of photography. Although they still wanted some cute, more posed images of him.
We started with him in a basket, but we are definitely passed the age when they sleep a lot.
The image that I did at the top of this blog post, was done using a digital background - so I photographed this baby and then edited him into the background later.
Close up details always look gorgeous with babies at any stage... and what amazing eye lashes!
We then focussed much of the session on the family, getting lots of beautiful photos of him with mummy and daddy.
And a final few of this baby by himself.
