Ribble Valley and Lancashire Wedding and Newborn Photographer.
If you have been following my work, you might recognise Annabelle. She came to for a photo shoot approximately 6 months ago with her cousin, Jaxon. On that shoot, Annabelle announced she was going to be a big sister! So, this week, she returned with her brand new baby sister, Harper for a newborn and sibling shoot.
Annabelle found some of my daughters toys to amuse herself with whilst Harper took centre stage. I started her off in my favourite hand knitted outfit and used various baskets, bowls and faux furs. She was a little unsettled at first, but a quick fill up of milk and she was good to go. From here, she totally rocked her newborn session. She wasn't for going to sleep, but she was more than happy to watch what I was up to. Every so often, her big sister came to get in on the action, which was lovely.
Once we were done with the props, we moved Harper on to my posing beanbag. She loved it on there. Mind, it is super soft and cosy! After I took a few of Harper all wrapped up, we moved on to doing my favourite shots..... Parents hands holding their baby on a black backdrop. I don't know about you, but I think it looks awesome!
From there, I took a few of them as a family. Annabelle was bored by this stage. However, I did manage to bribe her for a couple of smiles with the promise of some sweeties for afterwards...
If you are pregnant and fancy a newborn shoot, it can be booked any time after your 20 week scan. It's best to get booked in nice and early as I only book approximately 4 a month. This is because babies have a habit at not arriving on time. This means I have more flexibility with rearranging your appointment. Newborns are best to photograph within their first 2 weeks, ideally between 4 and 10 days old.
