As a devoted auntie myself, I was touched when Ava’s auntie got in touch to arrange a family photoshoot as a gift to celebrate Ava’s birth. At 5 weeks old, Ava was content and settled and Adam & Laura were relaxed and enjoying every minute with their new daughter. I was able to photograph Ava with some gorgeous blankets gifted by family, including a beautiful patchwork quilt. I like to capture all the little details – tiny toes, curled fingers and chubby chins – as well as baby portraits, and its always so special to photograph the bond between new parents & baby.
When I sent over the images I received a lovely message from mum Laura: “thanks so much Hannah, the photos are beautiful… We had a lovely morning with you and it was clear to see how much Ava loved it too. She likes the camera! Thanks for being so patient with her”. Photographing new babies at home means everyone can be relaxed and comfortable and allowing 3 hours for newborn sessions ensures there’s no rush or pressure, plenty of time for feeding and settling, so it’s stress-free and everyone can enjoy the experience.
You can see more of my family photography on my website, and if you’d like to arrange a relaxed family portrait or newborn session in your home I’d love to hear from you.
