The love and connection between tiny babies and their new families shine through my images.
I believe in a classic approach with newborns where I combine beautiful light and organic fabrics with connection and love.
It will never date and is always the most meaningful.
Dear newborn Parents
Congratulations with your little one, it is truly God’s greatest gift.
The ideal time, for me, to photograph your newborn baby is about at day 5. Mom’s milk has arrived; baby can get a full belly of milk and settle well. Up to 10 days newborns are floppy like the baby in the image below in her dad’s arms. They sleep deeper and their little bodies are easy to shape and to mold. The best time for a newborn shoot.
After 10 days they stretch themselves out. Baby becomes more alert and is easily woken up, like the little girl looking at her her mom in the image at the below.
A newborn shoot can take up to 3 hours. I let baby set the pace. Meeting up before the shoot is advised in order to be prepped ahead of time on what to wear and how to prepare baby to optimize sleepiness and making sure we are on the same page regarding styling and colouring.
My studio’s blankets, wraps and throws are made from organic cotton, linen, lambs wool, cashmere and alpaca that feels soft against baby’s skins. Natural fabrics with organic textures that photographs beautifully. I believe in photographing newborns in a soft and natural way with props kept to minimum to achieve a timeless look and feel.
