Leicestershire Newborn Photography
So where can I start with baby Nicholas's session? Firstly, let me start by saying welcome to the world little man. Baby Nicholas arrived 10 days early, on the 21st of January 2017 weighing 7lb 8oz! Born with a full head of hair and gorgeous lashes, makes me so jealous. He attended his session on the 7th of February with his mummy and gran.
Due to a last minute appointment that had come up on the day of our session we had very little time to get his photos taken, in fact we only had 45 minutes!! Yikes as a Leicestershire newborn photographer our usual sessions are between 2-3 hours long sometimes longer depending on baby. Due to his age and our calendar being full this was the only day we had before he became too old. We usually do newborn sessions when baby is 14 days and under due to still being able to recreate the position they are in inside the womb and then not having their startle reflex.
45 minutes really isn't long when you have to undress them, wrap them, settle them ect. Lucky for us baby Nicholas was a pro and was settled for us which enabled us to be able to get on as quickly as possible.
We decided our best route was props! This was because he could be wrapped (as snug as a bug in a rug) and placed inside the props without disturbing his much. We started by using the grey fluff, with red trim around the bowl. The grey was chosen by mum due to her preferring natural colours. By doing the grey we also were able to create the imaged needed to put Nicholas into our digital background image which has beautiful feathers around the bowl.
With Nicholas still fast off we popped him into one of our favorite props, the bed! We also used bonnets during his session. This enables to have two complete different looks by simply added a hat (as most would call it). We also had received a special tiny bunny in the post the day before which was perfectly sized to fit into his palm whilst all snug in the bed.
Next we went onto his photos with his mummy. We kept him wrapped to ensure we wasn't disturbing him too much. Just look how his mummy looks at him, that's true love right there
While he was still settled we quickly popped him onto the beanbag to ensure we got another set up so that we had managed to capture a variety of photos. Whilst he was here we took close up photos of his head, ears, eyes and nose. I find these extra important as these are the little details you tend not to look at often and grow so quickly that you forget how small they once were.
Phewww! Well that brought the end of our session to an end. Nicholas and his mummy got to his appointment on time and we managed to get a variety of photos in the given time. It's true to say I had never done a session that quickly and still got that many images before, I may blow my own trumpet and say that was a session of success.
Anyhow enough of typing enjoy some of my favorite photos from his session. For more information on our Newborn Sessions please 'Click Here'
