When booking a photographer, especially for a newborn session it is so important to find the right one. Yes it must be someone who has a style that you like, within a budget you can afford that is local enough for you to travel too in those early days. However, as more and more people are setting up businesses as photographers it is frightening how few actually have any real training in newborn safety and posing. So don't be afraid to ask. This is your baby at the end of the day and you must feel reassured that you are picking the right person.
I am asked on a regular basis about what time frame is best to capture a baby. There is no right answer to this question. More and more people have been contacting me recently wanting to book in for a baby photo session but anxious that they may have left it too late. Although the ideal time frame for those newborn pictures is when baby is a matter of days old, that's not to say it's too late if your baby is weeks or months old. It's never too late to capture your child and I would never want anyone to miss out on memories of their child. I had a lovely family who came for a session last month.
Elesha and Mike and their son Gabriel, and new daughter Eva. The whole family were amazing from start to finish and so relaxed throughout the session. Big brother Gabriel wowed me with how wonderful he was with his little sister and the images speak for themselves. I hope these will be treasured for years to come!
