Newborn photography is an art form that i love. In fact i love photographing babies in a natural, unposed and non-cheesy manner, using window light, creating beautifully soft, gentle and calm timeless images that are more “art” than “photos”.
My background of shooting weddings using low and challenging lighting really helps me to push the boundaries as i work with the baby or newborn to produce something very special for their parents and families to treasure. The aim is to create images that will be proudly displayed on the walls at home over a long period of time. My images are devoid of Photoshop gimmicks to create fine art portraits of these very special little people.
Beautiful baby Ava was brought to my studio by her lovely Mum and Grandmother for her first portrait session. My newborn photography with a fine art approach was new to them, but i did my level best to ensure they were calm, relaxed and happy with the aims of the shoot. After a short chat and once Ava was fed and asleep i could get down to work.
I like to work quickly without hassling mother and baby too much, which ensures a calm environment to photograph the newborn baby. Using the fantastic light from the bay window in the studio, really offers me the opportunity to produce breathtakingly ethereal imagery that my clients simply love.
Newborn photography is something i am receiving more and more requests for and a new dedicated portrait website will be going live very soon, so please keep checking for an announcement of its launch date.
The images below were all shot on my Nikon D3s and 24-70 2.8 lens before being processed in Photoshop using my own toning actions to create the final signature look.
