Newborn baby S | Newborn Photographer Epsom Surrey

Best time for newborn baby photography is when they are between 5 to 14 days old.

Why, you ask?

Breastfed fed babies start getting a good supply of milk which settles them from about 4-5 days and thus are much happy to sleep for a longer period.

Newborn babies fresh into the world are still very curly and sleepy, and they have the most beautiful soft skin.  After about 2 weeks of life the some babies tend to get baby acne or very dry skin that is because they are being exposed to the elements and the hormones they got from their mums, are leaving their little bodies. This is all very natural.

Babies start becoming far more alert and attentive to things around them from two weeks, making it that much harder to get them to sleep and to stay asleep. The slightest touch tends to wake them, so the cute posing that you see in so many baby pictures is not always possible.

Reflux and colic often to start set in around 2 weeks, making mum absolutely exhausted not that she isn’t already. Baby isn’t very happy to lie down flat and in all honesty, I don’t blame them as reflux hurts. I got to experience  this first hand with my 10 pound baby during pregnancy ;)

If you are wanting to create beautiful memories of those first few weeks of their size and their developing little character then I suggest to get gorgeous newborn pictures of them during those first 14 days of life.

The first two weeks go by in a blur. Its all about settling into a routine and getting to know your new little baby, as well as learning to cope with the sleep deprivation. I am so glad that I have beautiful images to look at, along with hand and feet casts hanging in their bedrooms. I love comparing them now to when they were a newborn baby and how much they have grown. x

A new baby is so delicate and vulnerable, and for parents to trust me with their new baby is such an honour. Parents arrive as strangers and I can say that I have made some amazing friends from my clients – I look forward to future sessions with some of these newborns and to see how they have grown! Keep an eye out for this little one in the next few months ;) I think she is going to be a determined but beautiful little girl if her mum was anything to go by!!

Family Pictures| Family Photographer Epsom Surrey

Capturing a moment – with family pictures it can be tricky to get everyones attention at the same time and little ones tire out rather quickly! These two little ones kept me on my toes but I loved every min of it. Its hard to break the ice with children, its a stranger that wants to take their picture but with the help of mum and dad the ice soon melted and we got the sweetest smiles out of them.

With smaller babies it is so much easier to get them to smile when they warm up to me, the struggle comes with the ‘older’ children who are more aware of a camera and taking pictures hence we sometimes get a ‘cheese’. Its at this point that I tend to wait before I click my shutter because often for a brief moment you can get the ‘I feel silly saying cheese’ and the real smile comes out as they giggle to themselves ;)

Children are so truthful and that raw emotion always shows on the faces you just have to wait for it…
