Newborn photographer North London – Highbury
About this newborn portrait session:
It was such a treat to photograph this 6 week old newborn at home with his parents. At his six week milestone, he was now quite alert but still tiny and snuggly – and starting to smile, which is always so lovely to see. Having those first few smiles and giggles captured in photographs is so precious, I’m always thrilled to give those images to parents.
He enjoyed some cuddles and kisses with Mummy and Daddy, as well as some quiet time lying on their bed. As with most newborns, he was still pretty snoozy and so I also had an opportunity to photograph his sleeping. His gripping reflex was still quite strong, and it was heart melting to photograph his little fingers holding tightly onto his parents’.
I took the photographs in a few different rooms – sometimes newborn sessions take place entirely in the parents’ bedroom, but other times it helps the baby to move from room to room to keep their interest.
