WHY I DON'T POSE NEWBORN BABIES
There was a time when I would turn up to a newborn photo session with posing beanbags, lights, backdrops, props, hats and wraps, and it took me a while to realise my heart just wasn't in it. It didn't make sense to me to have a baby on a beanbag away from their parents for an extended amount of time in the name of photography It didn't make sense to me to spend hours on end trying to make baby sleep to try to pose them in an unnatural position. It was stressful for everyone!! I know what it's like to have a newborn, and it can already be stressful enough.
Now during my Natural Newborn Sessions, babies spend most of their time in their parents arms where they should be. It's much less stressful for baby and takes half the time. I am in and out of your home in less than two hours rather than 4 hours.
I will still place babies for photographs, but never in unnatural positions, and I don't pose them in the way that many other photographers do. I think babies are perfect just the way they are, whether they are awake or asleep, placed on the bed or the couch, or in their parents arms. The way they yawn and stretch, the way they curl their little fingers and toes, that's how I like to capture their little personalities.
Natural Newborn Sessions focus on interaction and connection from the family, and always result in a gallery full of beautiful moments
