Baby Photographer – 10 week old Faye

Newborn baby photographer

Newborn baby photographer

Photographing newborn babies if often quite difficult but this session was a breeze!

Daniel and Laura brought in Faye their 1o week old daughter recently for some pictures in the studio. Usually photographing such a young baby can be tricky as they are not that expressive and spend most of the time gurning! But baby Faye is a trouper, maybe she’s a super model to be, although tantrums are NOT permitted in my studio!

Newborn baby photographyWe started off with some shots with mum and dad together and then some with Faye and Daniel and then Faye and Laura and finally just on here own. For this photography shoot I used the black background as we were going to get Faye out of her clothes and into a nice terry cloth nappy. Normally I have a white background but a babies pale skin can easily get lost against the white, black makes them stand out much more.

I always think this style of baby photography looks much nicer in black and white it seems to give it a more timeless look and concentrates the eye much more on the people.

A baby photographer needs lots of patience as you can’t ask them to do anything you just have to hope that things will work out. Also its a lot more off than on as they can get tired quite quickly so you have to plan lots of opportunity to rest and often feed!

    Baby photography is important as it documents a very special time in a child’s life. This time goes by far too quickly so it is important to try and document it well. Baby photography can be fun and rewarding whether you hire a professional or do it yourself. And I was so amazed of this post because you got the perfect shot for your baby photography.

    I love it! It’s a nice photo for a new born baby… Baby Faye is so cute… Aside from that I also admire the photos of the new born baby together with her parents. I really appreciate those parents who give importance to their babies. I also agree that being a photographer you need to have a lot of patience so that you can capture the best shot and angle of a certain subject. Good job!

    Amazing pictures! The baby is so cute. There is really a need for patience in taking baby photos. Sometimes you have to use stuff or do things to get their attention. These three pictures were so admirable.The eyes of the baby were very nice, it seems that she know what she’s doing. I think you’re right that she’ll be a super model someday.
