Quite often I will have parents contact me because they missed the newborn stage of photography. Parents will understandably get caught up in the whirlwind of parenthood not having given newborn photography a thought and suddenly discover the cuteness of newborn photos.
What happens then is that they start looking for a newborn photographer only to realise that newborn photography takes place in the first few weeks. When babies reach 10 weeks old they have changed so much and are also so much stronger which is why the typical newborn photos are often not achievable as they will push themselves out of curled up poses.
However, this shouldn’t stop parents from having professional photos of their baby whilst they are still young. At 10 weeks old, babies are still babies. I’ve photographed quite a lot of babies at this stage and, as you will see from the photos below, they are equally as gorgeous as the curled up newborn photos.
We were actually quite lucky during this session as this baby boy fell to sleep so I will still able to photograph some beautiful sleeping photos too as well as gorgeous awake photos … and with his eyes and eyelashes both looked amazing!
Thank you to this little boys’ parents for taking the time to write such a lovely review:-
“We are delighted with our beautiful baby photographs that Alison took of our son. We were impressed with everything from speedy replies to any queries we had to how prepared and committed Alison was to making the photo shoot as relaxed and as enjoyable as possible. She was brilliant with our son, who was a few months old at the time, and didn’t get frustrated when he fell asleep mid-shoot, in fact, she turned it to her benefit and took some lovely snoozing pictures! She was understanding when he needed a feed and we didn’t feel rushed or pressured. It was a good idea to have the session at our house so we all felt relaxed throughout the session. She was quick to set up and just as quick packing up again. We received the sample photos exactly when she said we would get them and we were given ample time to peruse and choose the ones we wanted. Her packages are reasonable considering the time she takes and her clear experience and skill in photography, especially with babies. We would not hesitate to recommend Alison and will be booking another session soon!”
