Here is the adorable Ava Rose who I had the absolute pleasure of photographing on Saturday at 9 days new.
One thing I noticed as soon as I tumbled into Adam and Jenny’s house with my abundance of kit (I’m like a one man band with all the throws, props, cameras and beanbag) was how chilled out they were. I already knew they were a barrel of laughs as I photographed their wedding last year, but to say they were new parents, giving up one of their newborn baby’s rare naps whilst I take over their kitchen, they were a dream. Just like little Ava.
Jenny even let me get my baby fix and rock Ava to sleep. I’m not the baby whisperer either. It doesn’t always work. However, with Ava’s full tummy, the heating on full blast, lullabies on repeat and my rocking we struck gold. Ava slept through 3 prop changes until she decided that being a model was no fun and that milk was where the party was at! :)
I’m still learning what works and what doesn’t with newborn photography and love how different and challenging each shoot is. I use natural light, my trusty Nikon D300 and mostly my fixed 50mm lens.
Any feedback is greatly received so please feel free to leave a comment or drop me an email.
