NEWBORN + BABY PHOTOGRAPHY I
When is the best time to photograph my baby ? I would recommend when they are between 1-21 days approx. for your newborn photographs. I have always chosen to approach newborn photography through a documentary eye. How I do this style of photography is arriving in your home meeting your new family & allowing you to relax in your home space & over a couple hours I will work around you to document your new family member as you hangout as new family. See below for some example's.
Baby photography is anywhere between 1 month- 12 months of age. They really start to do cheeky looks at you from around 3 months onwards. From 6-8 months they are very chubbylicious + tend to be lying on their tummy as well as sitting up & eating their toes! It is a cracker age to photograph as they are full of personality! The twins above are 6 months!
Then from about 8 months- 1 year you are looking at them potentially standing & holding onto your hands or even in a blue moon they will start to stand unassisted before 1 year of age! This is another amazing time to document!
So really all in all in your babies first year you can't go wrong. They change so quickly & fast ! And it really is just a fun year to document !
We were so lucky to have found Lannie to photograph our newborn son, the shots are just perfect! He was only 5 weeks old at the time, and we also have a very exuberant Labrador puppy, so accommodating them both took skill, patience and humour - all of which Lannie has in abundance :) We are so grateful to her for capturing the essence of our family and look forward to another session in the future.
Thanks Lannie xx
