capturing newborns at home

There’s always a sort of hush when I’m photographing newborns at home. A calm quiet, punctuated by the odd cry of hunger and the whispery yawns of tiredness. They screw up their faces, ball their tiny fists, and quickly become the centre of the world for besotted parents, who can’t quite remember the before anymore.

It’s wonderful to watch the family blossom like this, together at home, surrounded by meaningful objects that help tell the story of who they are.

Because I’m looking for just that – to give you something unique to you and your family, to document this new life together, the ebb and flow of schedules and feeds and nappy changes, and cuddles and kisses and just locking eyes and holding hands.

It’s not just about how you look in a picture, but how you look at the people in the picture with you. In those glances and smiles, in that unforced laughter, that’s the love I want to show, the story I want to tell. It reveals so much more than sitting you posed and properly, staring at the camera, trying on a tight smile for good measure.

Can I line you up and get you smiling beautifully for Grandma? I certainly can. But I want to give you more than that. I want you to have something that celebrates your newborn, your new family, that displays your affection, that captures that connection – family portraits that hold meaning.

Let’s celebrate the new centre of your world. Let’s find a way to hold those breathy yawns locked in an image, that beautiful new face reflecting back the love it basks in.

I’d love to photograph all of that for you. And for them.
