Newborn Baby Photography by Lesley Bee
Newborn baby photography. One of my favourite sessions to shoot. And why? Well, just take a look at the gorgeous, precious photographs below. Newborn baby photography is so important in the very early days. Capturing photographs of your beautiful baby during the very early stages – just amazing!
Newborn baby photography sessions are also even more special when I have also photographed the wedding of my clients. It fills me with great pride when couples come back to me and allow me to photograph their new baby. It’s just so lovely to see them again (of course), but also to share a little of their ‘joy’ at being parents for the first time.
Just look at his beautiful face, and how content and happy he is. And bonus? I get to have a little cuddle too. Always a bit of a perk to newborn baby photography sessions.
The bow tie in this shot was from his own little outfit and as his daddy is a bit of a bow tie fan then it was just a perfect shot to take. We also used his parents wedding rings in a couple of his photographs.
I have lots of props in the studio to use for newborn baby photography photo shoots, including knitted hats, lots of warm and snuggly blankets, baskets, boxes, furniture props etc. I always advise parents to bring along any items that they may wish to have featured in their photographs. Often parents bring along a favourite hat or blanket that grandma has knitted. Or a favourite teddy to include in the images. It just adds that personal touch. However, often parents fall in love with my hats, blankets etc.
Newborn photography sessions take around 2-3 hours and sometimes longer. I will work around you and your new baby. We can drink coffee, chat and relax so that parents and of course new baby feel at home. I have photographed some newborn babies and less than 2 hours, and with others the shoot has taken up to 4 hours. If it takes a while for your baby to settle and they require regular feeding and cuddling then of course I sit back and we take a break. It’s simple.
