I’m ever so behind on blogging sessions that Cora’s mummy is probably thinking about her first birthday party! The thing is with being a newborn photographer, or a self employed person for that matter, that when you are busy with clients it is a little too easy to leave the admin aside. Many of my fellow Bath newborn photographers would tell you that updating websites and social media take a lot of time and effort and are left to the bottom of the to-do list (Just above “filing your tax return”!).
Back to beautiful little Cora, who was an absolute dream for her newborn photo session. Her parents opted for plain backdrops, with some more colourful accessories.
Newborn sessions do not always go exactly to plan, but you will always get wonderful images. In fact, often when baby isn’t the most settled of newborns, parents are in awe at the peaceful images of their little baby. I take great pride in producing memories that you will treasure.
Little Cora became unsettled by the end of her newborn photo session. Mum and Dad had brought an heirloom blanket with them and by the time the blanket came out, this sweet little one was not so keen on more photos. Babies’ comfort is always my priority and the minute it became clear that we were not going to get the shot, we stopped. I quickly grabbed a photo of the wonderful blanket and with the help of photoshop, produced the image Mum and Dad wanted.
It’s never too early to book your newborn photography session. Most mums to be contact me at the beginning of the second trimester to ensure their place is reserved in order to capture those cute, sleepy newborn poses during the first couple of weeks of them being born.
