Best ways to prepare for your Newborn Baby Photography shoot

A more natural and spontaneous look at Newborn Baby Photography

It was a really great moment to receive a call from Simon and find out that he was now a proud father. We had photographed Simon & Joselyn’s wedding and I had really enjoyed their photographs, as people they are a lot of  fun and their were plenty of spontaneous photographs that Sebastian had captured for them.

To photograph them with their baby Jackson at our studio in Fremantle was going to so cool. Simon and Joselyn loved our candid and natural approach to baby photography and we talked about how we would approach the shoot. The brief was to document them as they are, if Jackson cries just go with it and capture that because that is what babies do, that’s real life. They noticed and were delighted that I did not have photographs of babies snuggled in knitted props in my gallery and even more relieved to see that I had none hidden in the studio when they arrived.

The shoot was fantastic and I loved every minute, there was a lot of laughing and plenty of crying too. My favourite photograph has to be the family shot with Simon and Joselyn mimicking Jackson’s crying. Just brilliant and Simon’s idea.

I think this is a refreshing take on portrait photography, there is certainly more to life than smiling and looking at the camera. For me, portrait photography is about revealing who people really are, their unique personalities and what they love about their partners and children.
