As a former midwife I will pamper your little one. I know exactly what to do and what not to do with a vulnerable newborn baby. This way you will not just get beautiful newborn photos, but a safe, enjoyable photoshoot experience too.
You can make an online booking here.
Isn’t it true that you can look in wonderment at your little newborn for hours? Your baby is exactly that: a miracle. Starting from only two microscopic cells, within 9 months a complete new human is formed. Can you imagine? All this developing, growing and being born is also very exhausting. That is why your newborn will sleep a lot in the first few weeks. And that is the reason this period is the perfect opportunity for making these beautiful, peacefully sleeping newborn photos.
Your baby is called a ‘newborn’ for 4 weeks from the day of birth. With a background in midwifery and twelve years of being a newborn photographer, I have enough experience in photographing newborns that I can do a newborn shoot up to 6 weeks after the day of birth.
Some poses are no longer possible after three weeks, and babies are awake more often, so it’s possible that they won’t sleep through the shoot.
This isn’t a problem of course, because awake newborn photos are also beautiful. I will take care your baby to make them feel comfortable and happy no matter what.
Another reason for doing a photoshoot in this newborn period is that newborn babies are very agile and flexible. After growing in the fetal position in the womb for the past months, being posed in this iconic position – that looks so great – makes them feel very comfortable. Usually after 4-6 weeks the ‘natural fetal position’ will disappear.
Agility and flexibility do not automatically mean you can do anything with a newborn. Actually, you have to be very careful. As a former midwife (and baby listener) I am an expert in baby comfort and safety. The poses and settings also differ from baby to baby.
Of course, I will explain everything beforehand and in the parents always choose what they like best.
I’d like you to know that ome of the newborn photos in my portfolio are digitally manipulated afterwards. The head is ALWAYS supported and I will edit this support out after the shoot.
