Another set of photos from a lovely newborn shoot a few weeks ago.  New hats and blankets feature …

This little girl was absolutely gorgeous (so were her parents), with a perfect little angel face.  She was also a real pleasure to photograph … very relaxed and happy.  A fabulous shoot, with pictures I’m sure her family will treasure for years.

I always love taking the “baby in dad’s hands” shots … there’s just something about a black and white photograph of a tiny newborn in dad’s strong hands.

Enjoy!

Baby Photography Tip #3: How to take a great family shot

March 20, 2014

When I take portraits of a newborn, a pregnant mother, a toddler, my pictures are about that person. Add another person to the mix, and the pictures become portraits of their relationship with each other. Created well, they capture golden moments that families cherish. But pinpointing that moment isn’t always easy – especially when several small children are involved – and I thought I’d write a post and share some of my tips and tricks for taking a great family shot.

Pearls

Love this little girl. I’m not one for adding lots of props and embellishments — I prefer the most natural photos. But somehow, these pearls that her mum brought really work in this image. Only 6 months old, and such a beautiful little girl!

High key photographs

I love shooting with my back-lit pure white studio set, particularly for babies and toddlers where there the simple modern tones really make for crisp beautiful images.

Another image from the same shoot.  She was so precious and tiny, so I tried to ensure we captured the fingers and toes close up.

Absolutely love this image from a newborn shoot a few weeks ago.  Such a gorgeous little girl, who just curled up serenely in this fur-lined bowl.  Really love the natural symmetry and balance.
