You might remember recently I shared this wonderful Mumma's beach maternity session. And only a month and a bit later I got to meet their wonderful new addition, Blake. I do love it when Mums book both maternity and newborn session (did you know there's an offer if you book both). I'm honoured I get to capture such amazing moments in peoples lives. Not only am I honoured but I truly love capturing motherhood moments. They are so special, beautiful and elegant.
Caroline came into my all white studio in Colchester, Essex with her wonderful family for Blake's natural newborn session.
Using gentle wraps, lots of cuddles and a lot of sibling kisses we captured the most special moments for these four.
Blake was awake for most of his newborn session. This happens sometimes and is totally ok, as long as they are content, I keep shooting. He did drift off towards the end, again this does tend to happen. However your baby is on the day I photograph them as that. That may be their personality, it might be exactly how they are with you at home and why should we force anything other than that.
Lovely Caroline chose a dress from my studio wardrobe, which looked perfect on her! I'm so glad I have a choice of dresses for those new Mums. The last thing you want to have to do before your newborn session when you're only thinking about your birth is shop for a dress.
