Here is beautiful baby Teddy, only one week old! He was the perfect model for his newborn shoot at my photography studio in Langley Park (Durham). He snoozed away through all our set-ups and woke up for cuddlesand eye contact with mum and dad for the family portraits at the end!
Most new parents arrive for their photo shoot and tell me they don’t want to be in the photographs themselves. However, I always encourage them to have one or two photos taken, just to see what they are like – there is no pressure to buy them, but I feel that this time when the baby is so tiny passes so quickly it’s a shame not to at least try to capture something special. I’m always asked if I can ‘airbrush’ bags under eyes from sleepless nights – I prefer to light sympathetically so that no Photoshopping is needed and new parents always look so lovely in photos, no matter how tired and weary they may feel!
