Watching my clients’ families expand and grow is one of the pleasures of being a family portrait photographer. Take a look at my favourites from this Nottingham newborn shoot at home.
Nottingham newborn shoot at home
I first photographed Jess and Dan’s family in 2013 after the birth of their first son during a natural family newborn shoot. I returned last weekend to meet their new addition when they booked another Nottingham newborn shoot at home.
What to expect
The arrival of a new baby, whether its your first or fifth can turn your world upside down. The ideal time for newborn photographs is before your baby is 2 weeks old. Booking me to come to your home in those early days takes the stress out of capturing those newborn moments. You don’t need to tidy the house or be feeling 100 % just yet. Everything you’ll need for your baby will be right there so there is no need to load the car with all the things needed to travel anywhere.
At just a week old, this little baby was the perfect age for a natural newborn shoot. I won’t pose your baby in unnatural positions or use them as a prop in a styled still life, you’ll just cuddle, feed, change and play with your baby as you normally would. There will be some light direction sometimes if I feel I need to, to get the shots in the style that you have chosen me for.
I want to give you photographs that remind you in luminous, timeless and beautiful photographs how your baby looked when they were brand new. It is also really valuable to provide you with a snapshot of family life right at the start of your new chapter. I love to capture the older siblings and their relationship with you and your new baby. In this case it was especially poignant as the last time I’d taken this little guy’s photograph he was no bigger than his new baby brother.

Here’s what Jess had to say about her photographs:
“Just beautiful, Lucy, thank you.
I love the black and white photo of Bay – beautiful boy!”
I think that might just be my favourite too
