One of the best things about being a family photographer is having past clients come back to you with a new baby bump or a new baby! All of our families change and grow so much when they are young, it’s great to be able to capture each milestone.
I posted about little Chloe not too long ago (and her gorgeous outfit!), and now Chloe is a big sister! Tillie was a bit older than the usual ‘newborn’, but she gave us lots of lovely sleepy time as you’ll see, as well as those sweet little awake shots.
I’m not a huge ‘prop’ user when it comes to newborns, I love my newborn sessions to be natural and simple, because you don’t need much to show how peaceful, new, and beautiful they are. I do enjoy using what ‘props’ bubs (and mum) already has, so that years from now when you look back at the portraits, you may still own the little hat, or the blankie, or whatever else you choose to include. For me it’s a more personal, meaningful way of creating a newborn session.
Anyway here is Tillie and big sis Chloe :)
