Photographing babies is such a pleasure and 8 week old baby Finley was no exception. I love capturing the innocence that babies radiate and this was in abundance with Finley. He is such an easy going, playful little boy – he really is every photographers dream. He knew where the camera was and knew when to stay awake and when to fall asleep – ideal!! When Yaz and Dave, two previous clients of mine, contacted me to take some pictures of their new arrival I couldn’t resist. We did a family photo shoot by the sea with Logan, their eldest little boy, last year which produced some really lovely images showing the close bond shared between the three of them. Finley’s baby photo shoot was carried out at their home as I work solely on location for all of my family and baby photography. Having a baby or newborn photo shoot at your own home has a lot of benefits such as everything is to hand (nappies, wipes, feeds etc) and you baby is comfortable in their own environment keeping them a lot more settled. I liased with Yaz for things like what time would be best to do the photo shoot and Finley’s routine, what their walls were like for backdrops and where the windows were for light. I also asked what sort of props she would like, if any, and would Logan be available from pre school to do some photographs with the two of them. Logan was available from pre school however unfortunately he wasn’t very well on the day of the shoot and so couldn’t be in the photographs and so we have organised another time to get some of the two of them and all of the family together.
