Newborn Photogrpaher Whetstone, Leicestershire
So where do I start with baby Elijah’s session, well firstly welcome to the world little man.
As a East Midlands, Leicestershire newborn photographer I have had the pleasure of meeting so many beautiful newborns, but I have never photographed anyone as tiny as Elijah. Whilst he was tucked away all warm and comfy inside, his mummy booked a maternity session with me. We had decided to wait until he was a bit bigger so that the bump was just the right size for the photos (32-36 weeks is the ideal time frame for a Maternity Session) but unfortunately Elijah had other plans and wanted to come early. Therefore, we changed for a Newborn Session.
When the news that baby Elijah had arrived safe and sound it was amazing, however he did need to stay in hospital longer. When the day came of the session he was nearly 4 weeks old, usually newborn sessions take place up to 14 days old due to babies still sleeping a lot and being able to curl up like in the womb. Up to 14 days’ babies are still very much like they are in the womb, after 14 days they tend to be awake more and explore the world with all their senses.
Anyhow onto Elijah’s session, his colour scheme was to stick with neutrals colours, browns, creams and greys. This fitted in perfectly with the décor of the home, we even incorporated a tiny bit of blue to tie in with one particular room.
We start with the parent shots first due to his daddy needing to get to work. We strongly encourage family images, one day you will look back and treasure how small they are, how snug they once fitted into your arms! We did a variety of photos with mum & baby, dad & baby and then them all together. We even got a few cheeky shots of grandma, mum and baby too. Elijah’s grandma lives in Canada so it was lovely to be able to capture that moment for her so treasure forever with her living overseas.
We then moved onto the props, I was super excited to get to use my new log basket, it is made of all nature wood and was perfect for our neutral colour scheme.
We even managed to incorporate Elijah’s big brother, (their dog). We took a photo of Elijah in the basket himself and then one with the dog and next to an empty basket and then incorporate these together.
