JAM is well known for our Creative Works sessions and everyone has their favourite images which normally include beds in fields or boats or butterflies.. My work covers a lot of different genres but I am so happy to spend the day just being a newborn photographer, nothing pleases me more than when we get to take the day out and spend it with a perfect newborn bundle like this little man.
Elliott came to us tiny and perfect and absolutely ready for his first official photos. He was perfect in every way – sleeping and feeding and taking the whole session in his stride. Sometimes it takes time for a newborn to settle so a newborn photography session can take all day; we’re happy for it to take as long as necessary, babies definitely rule this roost, but this handsome guy got stuck straight in.
It was a lovely morning chatting away with Mum, keeping the tea & cakes topped up. Dad couldn’t make it but we managed to convince Mum to get involved with the session. A bit hesitant at first but as soon as naked little bub was in her arms, there was so much love between them that capturing this special bond was too easy.
Often when I’m chatting with parents about their childs shoot, whether that be a newborn photography session, children’s portraits or family session, I encourage them to take an active part in the session and get involved. I’ve heard all the excuses before – its too soon after baby, I dont have the right clothes, I’d be too embarrassed, I don’t need photos of me… But I promise some of the greatest reactions to my images are the ones that show the love and bond between parent and child.
It’s far too easy to be the one always taking the photos, as I always am, but these are images that you will treasure forever… And in years to come, they will be treasured by your children too.
We are fully booked between now and Christmas but I have a commitment to make time for any Pure Baby or New Life sessions so do get in touch quick if you have an imminent arrival and I’ll do my best to get you in.
