8 day old Edie’s photo shoot

This week has been mostly gorgeous new babies to photograph and its been so much fun. On Sunday we finished our week when we met 8 day old Edie who was another tiny little bundle who looked just perfect in every single prop.

Mummy and Daddy arrived and we had a chat about our style and our procedure and they expressed their love for the cute naked photos so that was our main aim today. Having said that to get Edie comfortable we started off in one of our plain little white outfits and we got to work. Right from the start Edie was amazing. She was easy to pose and she slept beautifully all curled up in scrumpy perfection. This just goes to prove the importance of timings with newborns.

We went through all our props with a variety of hats and little cute accessories. before mummy carefully undressing our little angel.

We went through a few more props and poses all of which worked perfectly before we changed over to a few family photos. Some with Mummy and Some with Daddy then of course some together. Afterwards we got her dressed in her “grown up” clothes and did a few more with mummy and Daddy.

What do we bring to a newborn photoshoot?

This is our most common question with new mums. Well Sue and I have a huge studio full of beautiful baskets, swings and beanbag props for new babies. We also have all the little outfits that you see on our website, we have 2 of most for twins too. We also have a few soft toys and lots of special blankets and rugs. We have full changing facilities too and a Mummy and Baby room although we are 100% happy for you to change and feed baby in the comfort of the studio whilst having a cuppa from our free and pretty cool coffee machine or indeed catching up on facebook with our free wifi.

So to answer the question. Extra nappies is always a great idea, probably for a couple of years not just the photoshoot 😂 Plus extra milk, if your feeding baby yourself then its not a problem but if you bottle feed either full time or even just at night then its handy to bring some spare milk because newborns sometimes take a bottle easier in a strange environment. Other than that we are all covered.

How do you create the right environment?

We had already started by creating the right environment for our babies. Our studio is warm, comfortable and safe and filled with the scent of our specially blended Aromatherapy oils it is just perfect for babies. Our props are all warmed in preparation so there are no unexpected cold areas for babies delicate skin. No shocks to wake them or disturb their perfect slumber. Most of all we allow time, lots of time for you to relax and baby to feel safe and happy.
