Newborn baby photography shoot – Richmond upon Thames, Surrey

Hannah contacted me around 3 weeks before her due date in the summer to book a newborn baby shoot which of course I had to be flexible!  Beautiful Annabelle was born on the 20th July and we scheduled the shoot for as soon as the family felt ready for me to come over.

I usually like to do the newborn shoot within the first week to 10 days.  Annabelle was slightly older than this but still I was able to get some wonderful shots of this beautiful family.

My newborn shoots are very different from studio work as I don’t like to use props as I want the shoot to be as natural as possible. Hannah and Greg were keen to have the shoot outside (thankfully it was a fabulous sunny day) in their garden.

Annabelle was amazing and only cried once during the shoot which took around an hour.

Hannah and Greg’s home had an amazing continental theme about it and I loved being able to use the contemporary lines and textures of the exotic plants in the shots.

They loved the images at the viewing that I held at my office for them and they bought a contemporary bevel edged print of the first image in this post, an 14×10 album and a framed 10×8 inch print with a black mount and frame of the black and white image of Annabelle which looks incredibly striking.
