It was such a special day when La'Reya came to visit. We had to postpone her original date so she could have a little check-up, and when she was given the all-clear we rebooked her Newborn Photoshoot, and at 12 days new she was an absolute dream.
Postponing sessions is a comment occurrence for Newborn portraits, we might have to move the date depending on when the baby arrives, because the baby has to stay in hospital a little while or because Mum has been unwell. Newborn babies are best photographed between 5 and 14 days new when they still like to curl up into those super cute poses - but what is more important is that both Mummy and baby are healthy and able to enjoy the session, we'll capture beautiful photos and memories whatever age they are.
With Daddy at work, Mummy wasn't sure about joining La'Reya for a photo, but with a little gentle encouragement, we got Mummy in front of the camera and got some beautiful photos. Mummies, you have to remember these photos are for your baby not just for you - imagine how they will treasure these photos when they are older, and they will always think you are beautiful.
For a short while, La'Reya was awake and looking at me as if to say 'what are you doing?' as I wrapped her up all snug in my favourite wrap. This was the perfect opportunity to photograph those beautiful eyes.
With time to feed and lots of soothing from Mummy, La'Reya slept..well..like a baby, and we got the most beautiful photos.
Including La'Reya just chillin' in her hammock.
Taking advantage of our new Newborn packages, Mummy & Daddy have all the gorgeous digital images to keep and a presentation box with lots of their favourite images in professional print to display in their home - just beautiful.
Thank you for coming to see me LaReya, and I'll see you again when you can sit independently and we can capture your gorgeous smile with the next big milestone.
