There must be something in the water because there have been a LOT of newborns lately! Not that I'm complaining when I get to cuddle tiny little babies for a living. And this gorgeous girl was simply too cute for words.
You may recognise the mummy as I posted photographs from her maternity session on here a few weeks ago. She had the most perfect pregnancy bump, and now she has the most perfect little baby too.
One of my biggest regrets is not booking a newborn session for my own baby. They only stay tiny and delicate like this for 2 or 3 weeks and it's such a shame not to capture it on camera to remind yourself of this fleeting moment. Of course I did actually take photos of him (through a bleary, sleep deprived haze), but I really should have booked another, more awake, photographer to freeze this moment in time for us.
Anyway, back to this little bundle. This house is great for a photo shoot, beautiful light with stunning original windows, and the decor has a lovely peaceful vibe which works so well with newborns.
What can I say? I love photographing teeny tiny feet!
There's nothing posed about this next shot, I walked in the room and spotted this reflection and snapped away, I love intimate moments like this one between mother and child.
This next shot is a favourite pose of mine. Take a look at any of my newborn sessions and you'll see a photograph like this one. I just love how tiny they look snuggled up in their Dad's hand and usually I take quite a few shots from different angles while they're there. However, this is the ONLY 'hand shot' we got during this shoot due to a very wriggly baby, but I couldn't be more pleased with how it turned out - she actually looks like she's smiling. What a result!
And here is a little before and after for you. Altogether now...ahhhh.
