Firstly, let me say a huge and heartfelt congratulations to you!
I know you are likely to have lots of questions; this is after all a very important decision.
Choosing the right Newborn Photographer is key to making sure that you get the perfect newborn photos for you. So here is some information about how I work, my style and some other information that I hope will help to answer some of those questions for you.
relaxed & calm
A session with me is a completely stress-free experience…yes, even when baby is cluster feeding, peeing & pooping! As an experienced newborn photographer, and mum of 3, I can promise you that there is nothing that I have not seen before. For me, the experience that you have whilst we capture your images is as important as the images themselves.
My sessions are entirely baby led – I want to capture these moments for you in a way that when you look back on these photos you remember how you felt whilst we took them. You remember how your baby’s hair tickles your nose as you breathe in their scent, you remember the softness of their skin as you stroke their face and you remember that feeling of just overwhelming & all-consuming love you have for them.
For me it’s about capturing the emotion of this wonderful time for you.
Whether you choose a newborn session in my clean, crisp white studio or within your own home my approach is the same.
A newborn session with me focuses almost entirely on you and your baby, together. That may be you soothing your baby if they’re fussy, feeding them or cradling them as they sleep. I’ll photograph baby in beautifully simple, natural poses capturing all those little details that make your baby so individual.
My very favourite moments are those when maybe baby is in need of a little extra love. I watch almost in slow motion as you sway, rock and rest your nose gently on the top of your baby’s head. I’ll capture those sweet seconds where your eyes are closed as you take a deep breath.
Often families are put off from in-home sessions but these really can result in some of the most stunning results. Your baby, your family, your home. Connection through and through.
” Rachael photographed our baby girl when she was just 12 days old. Our daughter fought the tiredness and even after plenty of feeding still did not sleep very much. That was no issue for Rachael. She was very patient and gave us plenty of time to feed her, and when she wouldn’t sleep any more captured some great images with eyes open showing her little personality.
