And here we have another newborn. It has become very clear to me that I have a favourite subject and it is definitely newborns. They are so beautiful, and so peaceful its just a relaxing and enjoyable experience. And to me it is the most important stage in a child's life to capture professionally because they are only newborns for such a short time.
They change so quickly at this stage. In fact, every session I have parents come back to their viewing commenting on how much they've changed just in the week or so since their session.
And judging by the many Facebook images I see of new babies they are also a lot more difficult to capture well. I don't mean any offence by this. Its just that a perfect baby deserves perfect exposures and focusing which is often missing in the images I see on Facebook. How much is it worth to have a clear picture of exactly what baby looked like in those early days?
I also love getting to know the families. These sessions are never quick so we have lots of time for a chat and often over a lovely cappucino or tea. There is nothing hurried about a newborn session. What baby wants baby gets meaning we work around feeding schedules, nappy changes and have time for cuddles.
Again I have another one of my union jack images. This has proved to be a favourite with many of my baby customers. It looks like the bean bag is going to have to stay in the studio a little longer.
These final two images caused some discussion during the viewing. I must say that I myself am very torn between which one I prefer. The real problem being that Mum preferred one and Dad the other. I'd love to hear some opinions from others to see if one will stand out from the other
So if you have an opinion please share. I'd love to hear what others think.
