New Baby Evelyn and her Mummy – Newborn Photography Broxbourne

Meet Baby Evelyn (10 days old) and her beautiful Mummy from their newborn photography session last week. I went to this proud parents home in Broxbourne, Essex, for their newborn pictures and had a lovely photo shoot with the three of them. I have lots of gorgeous images from their shoot, but this has to be one of my favourites of Baby Evelyn cuddled up safe and happy in her Mummy’s arms. Check out her cheeky smile too! <3

Newborn shoots are my passion and I love capturing these tiny people in their first few weeks. They change so quickly and grow so fast, which is why it’s so important to book in your session for the first few weeks after their arrival.

Baby Esther – 8 days new! Newborn Photography Essex

Meet Baby Esther – 8 days new and a shade under 7lbs!

This little cutie had other ideas on going to sleep! Thankfully she was open to persuasion and once she finally gave in, we got some simply stunning pictures of this little girl!

I am usually a natural light photographer, but I asked Esther’s Mummy if she would mind me trying out some fancy new lighting, and thankfully she said yes and I’m so pleased she did!

I love the way this lighting looks for newborn photography – so natural, yet the baby can be perfectly lit in any situation or pose! I think I’m converted!

Hope you love this small selection of pictures from her shoot! <3

Baby Esther’s newborn pictures – 8 days new!

Introducing baby Esther – 8 days new and absolutely beautiful!

I meet this little bundle of fun today at her proud parents house in Loughton, Essex. She wasn’t too keen on sleeping to start with, but a little patience and lots of cuddles soon saw her off to sleep and I got these beautiful pictures of her!

Here’s just 2 of my favourites from the session! Many more to follow!

Baby Boy Fox – 12 days old, newborn photography home session

I first met this little champ’s parents for their bump shoot (a fantastic Christmas present for Mummy-to-be!) and on a cold but sunny afternoon, when we went into the local woods and got some cracking shots! Just a few weeks later Baby Fox arrived and I was really excited to go and meet him at just 12 days new!

Mum and Dad were already prepared with a gorgeous hat (which was a tad on the small side and I almost cried when we had to snip a bit up the back to get it on!) but this little guy was amazing and slept nearly the whole session! We had lots of fun with both the hat and the tiny fox teddy (his surname is Fox by the way!) and as Mum and Dad are also big Pooh Bear fans, we also squeezed him in amongst his newest friends at the end!

A really lovely session with a handsome little boy! I hope you enjoy the pictures!

Beautiful Rose – 12 Days Old (Newborn Photography)

I met the beautiful Rose when she was just under 2 weeks old! I photographed her parents wedding a few years back so I was so happy to hear from them that they were expecting their 1st baby.

Rose was an absolute dream to photograph and we had a lovely session.

Newborns are best photographed within the first 2 weeks, ideally in the first 8-10 days, so I offer all my clients a provisional booking 10 days after the baby is due, therefore enabling me to manage my very busy schedule! If you are pregnant and would like to book a newborn photography session, then please get in touch! x
