Calm, relaxed natural newborn photoshoot in Brent, London.
Natural newborn photography is very special. I always feel so privileged to be asked to take photos in these precious first few days. To keep everything calm and relaxed we go slow with the babies flow.
Beautiful natural photos of you caring for your little one
When you have an at-home newborn photoshoot, there is no time pressure like in a studio. We can take a break while you take care of your little one. And I capture how you do this. The tricks you've developed to get a burp or comfort your baby when they feel uncomfortable after a feed.
Rafe was a hungry little guy, so he wanted to feed a lot. Which in turn means he needed to be winded and settled after his feeds. So we just paused and let him feed. While his parents took care of his needs, we chatted and I clicked away.
All your little tricks recorded and documented
Rafe's mummy discovered he liked to suck on her finger. This comforted him and stopped his cries. And being lifted high in the air by his Daddy took his mind off needing a feed while his mum got herself ready.
It goes by in a daze those first few weeks. Photos really do help you hold onto it. And remember the little things you do to comfort them. Many of the strokes, bounces or songs you sang you will continue for quite some time but not through the years as they grow.
