Maternity & Newborn Photography Session Whetstone, Leicestershire
So I'll start by saying, I just love it when a mum books in for a ‘Bump To Baby’ package - a maternity session and a newborn session. By choosing this package you save £20 from the session fees due to booking in for both at the same time.
Anyhow the main reason I love them is because you get to capture mum at the most beautiful time and you also get to meet the little bean that's been growing in their belly. This is what Lauren and Will did. They came along for their maternity session and we captured some lovely personal photos of them both.
We then moved on to dark and seminude to really capture Lauren's beautiful bump.
When Lauren messaged to say she had a baby called Aurora weighing 8lb exact. we just couldn't wait to meet her.
Aurora was 9 days old at her session and was an absolute dream for us. It helped that mum & dad allowed us to use her dummy during the session as this can help just to settle baby after being moved.
We provide new/sterilised dummies for our newborns that don't have one with them at mum & dad's discretion just to help with settling baby after being moved and positioned.
For this session mum & dad wanted neutral colours but to tie in a bit of pink, and of course for a gorgeous little girl some headbands.
Here's our most neutral set up which we also use on a digital background to create this image in the swing. As you can see it's the same pose and one image but we can create two set ups from it.
During this session we also use our phone tripod to be able to record mini videos to show future clients what will happening during session, this gives clients the heads up so they know what to expect. We also feature these on our YouTube channel to show how we pose baby and how newborn safety is top priority for us and that there is always somebody with baby.
Baby Aurora was so good for us we have got a fair few she will be featuring in.
