Eloise and Marcie melting our hearts

Our newborn photoshoot with Marcie and big sister Eloise.

A couple of years ago we met the adorable Eloise for her first photoshoot and last week we met her again along with her new sister Marcie or as she wanted to call her “Dave” haha

Having been before Mummy and Daddy knew what to expect but as always we were 100% ready for everything. Marcie settled in which can take anything from 5 minutes to an hour and I played lego with Eloise 🙂 that was my best half an hour of the week ❤️

Sue got Marcie ready then called me into action, when I say action, everything is done in super slow and steady pace and using our bespoke Italian lighting system it stays that way too. Marcie was amazing, she slept, woke and slept again over and over again and the photos were sensational and once we got Eloise away from the lego she joined the fun too.

It was a superb photo shoot and we all loved it. Just an amazing way to spend an afternoon. We managed lots of props and a few outfits too.

I hope you love the photos below and ,much as we do.

A small selection of photos below that will help you get to know our style with newborns. we have hundreds of props and add to them often.

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.

 Creating 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.
