This session was a little close to my heart as I'm ex-Navy myself and I absolutely love getting clients in that are either in the military or are a military family. Although I have photographed a few sessions with those who serve in the Royal Navy, I've never had a client who brought along their ceremonial Number 1 dress.
I was so excited for this session and baby Isaac at just 12 days old performed like the perfect little model - he slept well, posed fantastically and he pee'd AND pooped on me just before this shot! He was so incredibly relaxed so it's to be expected and it's perfectly normal for these little accidents to happen.
He made the sweetest little snuffly noises when I'd posed him in this nest so I think mum and dad might have a little chatterbox to contend with when he's older!
All newborn sessions are bespoke and designed around you and your baby. You choose the colours and I'll design the setups and I even hand make every little outfit for your new arrival. For me, that just gives it a personal touch and I absolutely love being at my sewing machine and getting creative! Here are a few of the little outfits that I make for my tiniest clients.
As a newborn photographer, I take safety extremely seriously so you will find that I am fully trained as a newborn specialist and carry full public liability insurance. Every single one of my sessions I am always thinking about your baby's safety throughout, so you can see in this pose, Dad's hand is either on baby or literally just above it. When I pose your baby in any props, I will always have mum or dad close by, within an arm's length.
I am a member of BANPAS (Baby and Newborn Photography Association) who continually promote newborn baby safety and awareness.
