Maternity & Newborn Session with Bumps Baby Beyond Photography Leicester, East Midlands
Firstly, let me introduce you to Louisa and her Partner, I couldn’t have met a prouder couple. These guys have been together for 10 years, and to mark their special anniversary they booked their maternity session on this date!
Here’s just a few from their session however my favourite image is of them both lost in a moment of happiness, its a fun and memorable image, I truly believe this image reflects their personality. Our maternity sessions are held around 32/36 weeks pregnant and are held at my Studio in Whetstone, Leicester just off the M1.
I eagerly waiting for their little bundle to arrive, and welcomed this sweet new baby girl in the studio, Rowan. Oh my, what a little love she was. Coming into the studio at 9 days old, this little girlie couldn’t have done a better job on her first day as a little model she was perfect for us and slept the whole 3 hours she was at the studio.
Do you wonder how to prepare for your session? This is something that’s taken care of and we provide you with all preparation instructions. I’ll just take the opportunity to explain to you what they are. Prior to the session mum and dad receive a “what to expect guide’’ this includes tips such as; try and keep your baby awake for 2 hours prior to the session to ensure they will be very sleep during the shoot, this makes it easier to move them and position them into various poses without waking them. Also ensuring you feed baby just before you leave for the studio as a full tummy equals to one happy, sleepy baby.
My favorite set up was on our wooden backdrop with mum’s favorite animal, an elephant! Don’t worry not the alive type, we wouldn’t be able to fit one through the studio door. Bringing mums favorite animal into this wasn’t even a question. she had brought Rowan a big elephant for in her nursery so that is what we used.I know what you’re thinking, just adorable isn’t she!!
We of course captured that first beautiful image as a family and some of both parents on their own. This always makes me smile, you see the love and happiness in the family’s eyes when they are cherishing this little newborn that they’ve been dying to meet for 9 whole months!!
