Jasper’s first photo shoot
On Thursday we met 8 day new Jasper (cool name ha) who was such a tiny little man it was just adorable. Born a few days late at a whopping 5lb 14oz 💙 he was the cutest little lad you could ever wish to photograph.
Jasper arrived asleep and although we followed our proven procedure for the shoot, we never heard a peep from him until almost at the end. He was not only a perfect little bundle but he was well behaved too 😀
We started with one of our lovely neutral outfits and played with a few props, gently moving and playing with him and of course keeping him comfortable and safe. We never do any of the silly unnatural poses that I believe risk newborn babies and I am not alone! Instead we stick to safe comfortable poses and I think they look amazing.
After we had done all of our props we changed Jasper into a blue outfit which I think he loves because I got a few smiles. Again lots of playing with positioning helps that.
We then did a few with Mum and Dad which finished off the shoot perfectly.
Jasper can definitely come back.

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.
