Baby Sophia’s Newborn Photography Session – creams and neutrals

Essex Newborn Photography – Baby Sophia!

My last Essex newborn photography session of the year was the perfect end to 2023 with sweet 25-day-old baby girl, Sophia.

Meeting newborn babies in those first few weeks after birth is something I always get excited by – their delicate features, the little personalities which are already evident, and the soft sleepy cuddles and peaceful expressions as I pose and style their newborn pictures, all whilst they are sleeping! This baby girl’s new parents came to my Essex newborn photography studio in Hatfield Heath (Bishops Stortford) and requested a neutral colour pallette of soft whites and creams, which perfectly showed off her gorgeous dark hair, lovely long eyelashes and pouty lips! (she’s a stunner already!).

The focus of a newborn photoshoot is obviously on the baby, but I like to add personal touches to my sessions, so we also added a snowy nod to winter and Christmas (the time of year she was born) as well as capturing beautiful family pictures of Mum with baby, Dad with baby and all three together. Family portraits are always one of the highlights within my sessions and whilst I appreciate new parents will often be sleep deprived and exhausted, good lighting and subtle editing allows me to create precious and lasting memories of you and your new baby.

As a newborn photographer, I believe in the importance of capturing this time in theose first few weeks before they start becoming more awake, alert and inevitably harder to pose! Baby Sophia was 25 days old but newborn photography sessions can be scheduled for any time in those first 3-4 weeks and usually around day 10. Her newborn pictures are beautful and hopefully they made for the best grandparent presents this Christmas!

Newborn photography is an art that requires not just skill with a camera but also a deep understanding of the wants, needs and safety requirements surrounding working with newborn babies. I am a professional photographer with qualifications with SWPP and The Guild of Photographers, both of which I hold certification and awards for my work. Pictures will last a lifetime, but I also pride myself in creating a safe, amazing and personal experience with you and your new baby, which will last a lifestime too.

As a mother myself, I understand the overwhelming joy and exhaustion that comes with welcoming a new baby into the family. It’s easy to let those early days slip away in the blur of sleepless nights and nappy changes, but by booking your newborn photography in the 2nd or 3rd trimester of pregnancy, you guarentee freezing those fleeting moments in time, creating lasting memories that will be cherished for a lifetime.

Booking a professional and award winning newborn photographer ensures that these moments are not just documented, but transformed into timeless pieces of art that will be treasured for generations to come.
