Twins, Barnaby and Jonah’s photo shoot

Newborn twins Barnaby and Jonah

Having photographed hundreds of newborn babies and dozens of twins we normally have a good idea of how our shoots are planned out. Even more so today because we photographed older brother Samson almost 7 years ago as a newborn and Mummy and Daddy a few more times too.

Best laid plans………

So having carried out our usual prep the babies arrived after a longish drive from home. We fed, changed and cuddled them. again we fed changed and cuddled them. and again, and again haha. I know it sounds bad but it was not really. I was happy playing lego with Samson and Mum and Dad were pretty busy.

To be fair it was pretty tough but I just knew that if we could get them settled the photos would be amazing. Barnaby settled first and I started with him and bringing in big brother Samson. Then eventually Jonah so we quickly photographed them together and just as I thought it was amazing.

We may not have gotten as many outfit changes as usual or as many baskets and props but the photos we did get are just amazing.

It just goes to show that babies do have unsettled days, of course its happened before too but it also goes to show that our patience pays off.

We now have an adorable set of photos with Barnaby and Jonah and big brother Samson.

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 for a newborn shoot?

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.
