This is largely to do with my recent sitting with Ashley James. I never realised you could do so much with a relative newborn. Even though I've had my own I still didn't feel comfortable asking a new mum to put their baby into positions I only thought possible of older children.
But it worked and the results are fab. Ashley looks absolutely adorable in these images and I only wish I had the skill and equipment back when my daughter was born. In fact, it makes me want another just so I can spend hours photographing my own baby.
Unfortunately I think it would result in me becoming a single parent though, as my husband would lose his mind and need to be institutionalised if I became pregnant. Our kids are currently at an age that makes a new baby and 2am feedings look easy. Although a new baby might be nice, a new teenager or stroppy 7 year old wouldn't be. And its inevitable that a baby would some day become one. So I'll just have to make do with clients who have babies instead.
