There's a lot to take in as you heal and adjust to your new life as a Mother and that's why it's important to freeze some of these new and precious moments in the first few weeks after baby is born. A glance at your photographs in years to come and you'll be able to smell that wonderful new baby scent again, hear their happy little gurgle and almost feel that tiny little being in your arms once more.
Newborn photography isn't just about the photos, it also gives you a reason to take some time out to just stop and be still with your little one while the world carries on outside. Keeping newborn photography simple and natural means that I can capture everything from the little details of scrunched up toes to beautiful first family portaits of you all together. I also bring my classic storyteller style to these sessions and capture the real and raw images so you have firm, tangible memories of those emotional but oh so wonderful newborn days. Of course you're welcome to add blankets, headbands or anything else you would like to your little one's portraits however they won't be posed in buckets or styled by myself.
Newborn sessions are best booked for when baby will be between one and eight weeks old to ensure the essence of a tiny newborn baby is captured, however please don't feel pressured to book for then; even if baby is a few months old your photographs will look fantastic and remind you of that special time. Your session will take place at your North Yorkshire home because this is the perfect location for baby's first portraits - everything we could possibly need will be close at hand and you won't even have to load the car up to get there meaning you can instantly take a few worries away! But more importantly, this is baby's first home and it's full of your family love, your backstory and your now.
