As a newborn baby photographer in Leicester, I had the pleasure to photograph a returning clients niece. I had captured precious moments of her her cousins, their newborn sessions and then their cake smash sessions. I also had the pleasure of photographing Etta's brothers cake smash <3 I was truly honoured when her mummy asked me to document this huge milestone in their lives when they first found out they were expecting...so we've been waiting a whole 7 months to meet their new addition!
I always say it is best to secure your session after your 12/20 week scan, this way you are guaranteed to have your memories documented within the first 14 days of your babies life.
Mum had chosen to have our full newborn session, which includes both family and sibling images, her brother was amazing for his photos and fantastic with his new sister. We always do what we call a composite images with young siblings, we ask parents to bring a few of their favourite toys so that we can hide them in the props which helps them to look in the right direction and then edit baby into the image after.
When we have siblings we move straight onto the family images due to keeping the timing short. After all, whether the siblings are toddlers or older they can get fed up with waiting. We always capture the whole family together and then some single images of baby with each parent. Here is just a hand full of family and sibling images from their session.
After we have finished with her brother, her daddy took him to the park so we got straight on with baby Etta’s images. For this we kept mainly with dusky pinks and fairly simple and neutral colours that mum and dad had asked for. You’ve probably seen me write about sentimental items that can be incorporated into images which is exactly what we did for this session. These items included a few teddies’ that Etta had been brought including beautiful wooden letters spelling out her name. I loved doing these images, here’s just a few for you to see.
On top of this I always ensure I captured a few images at certain angles so that I can use those images in our digital backgrounds. This creates more images from the same photo but as you can see her are completely different than the rest.
This was again another honour to capture baby Etta and her lovely family. I do truly have the world’s most amazing job!!
