Oh where to start with little miss Poppy-Leigh, isn’t she just the cutest! I honestly didn’t want to put her down, I could have cuddled her all day.
Posing newborn babies is amongst the most delicate arts. Taking those fabulous shots which will live on within any family's album for the rest of their lives can be a very rewarding job – I just love their squishy little cheeks, lovely crinkles in their backs and the adorable tiny feet and hope that the parents enjoy these just as much as me! Black and white images are also a favourite for me, so as a thank you for every colour digital image you buy you will get a black and white one FREE.
Poppy-Leigh was such a dream to work with, being only 8 days old allowed us to get her into those newborn womb like poses with ease. Before I had my children I used to look at newborn photography and think ‘ooo how do you pose a baby like that’ ‘hmmm that doesn’t look comfortable’ but soon after I had my children I soon realised these are the position they are actually most comfortable in. There’s not a lot of room in your tummy and you'd be surprised and how much babies love to feel secure, wrapped up tightly, laying on their side with legs high up to their chest, hands by their face…these are all thing they used to do whilst growing into the perfect little beings they are today!
I recently attended a newborn course which covered up all the fundamentals of newborn photography such as utilising creative props & important safety measures which helped me understand what poses are best for each individual child. The course allowed me to grow the skills & confidence which is crucial in order to develop your photography. I feel that what I have learnt has been demonstrated in these images and hope you readers also see that? Wraps and hair ties from Fairyworld Shop.
Adiós... until my next blog :)
