London newborn photoshoot | at-home with Mummy-and-me
Capturing the early-days bond beween mama and baby is something I cherish as a photographer, and this little fella and his gorgeous mama rocked their London newborn photoshoot.
At home photoshoots are a wonderful way to capture some memories of the very early days in the comfort of your own home. Not only can baby nap whenever needed, you’ll get a gallery of images telling the story of how and where you lived with all your home comforts around you. There’s no pressure to be anything other than yourselves. I don’t tell you what to do or what to wear – my shoots are naturally unscripted so we can go with the flow and embrace the unpredictabilty of newborn life. Feeds, baths, naps, snuggles and play – I’ll capture it all.
I met this little chap for an at-home photoshoot in northwest London and he kept me very happily entertained as I shadowed him and his mummy, snapping away with my camera through cuddles, sleep and feeds, yawns, giggles, smiles and – got to be honest – a few quizzical frowns too.
Little R is one of the most chilled little men I’ve ever met, happily drifting from nap to feed to change to nap, to bouncer and cuddles. Tough life with his lovely mummy!
