Newborn Photography Session, Leicester Whetstone
A few weeks back I had the pleasure of doing a newborn session with the gorgeous, 9 day old Violet-Ada. She is just super gorgeous and was really well behaved for us which made for a perfect session. We try to hold our newborn sessions before little one is 14 days old; this ensures we get the womb like poses. We make sure that mum and dad get a Client Guide before their session, this is crammed with information, which ensures your runs as smoothly as possible.
She has the most perfect little features I have ever seen, and I will warn you, these photos have cuteness overload!!
During her session we used greys and neutral colours and wanted to stick with a vintage style theme, however we did incorporate colour into one set up as it is nice to have that option there. I always like to ask what colours are around the home beforehand so that the images will fit in with the décor of the house and won’t look out of place, after all these images will be on your wall and in your families live forever.
We used various props in the session, and even incorporated ‘’violets’’ into a few of our set ups, as mum requested this to reflect Violet’s name. It was so lovely to talk about where Violet’s name had come from. Mum and dad wanted names that were significant, and both names are from their grandparents; Violet and Ada. When speaking with mum, and sending her our sample gallery to look through she had chosen our tea cup image. I find it extra important to allow mum/dad to see a sample gallery prior to their session to ensure they chose props and poses that they like the most. After all its what mum and dad like best.
We always do try to encourage parent shots as they will never be this small again, fitting so snug in your arms. They really do grow far too quickly. However, having a newborn is so tiring that posing for photos isn’t always on mum and dads list.
