There is something about this image that I absolutely adore. It’s simple, timeless, imperfect and there’s certain vulnerability in it that every mother feels in those first few weeks and months after giving birth.
This newborn photography session in London was no exception and we spent a lovely couple of hours capturing real and honest portraits of this new family of three. There was no need to wait until the baby fell asleep (she didn’t really!) and we were able to capture many beautiful and honest photographs of the new parents just finding their feet with this whole parenting gig, as well as a few lifestyle portraits to share with friends and family.
For this One Frame feature, I chose this shot from a newborn photography session in Dorking. I love the quietness and contentedness of this image, as the mum went about feeding her new baby girl. It gives the view a little peek into the nursery, as if we were standing right there in the doorway.
If you are currently pregnant or have just had your baby, you might be searching the internet for a newborn photographer to capture your new bundle of joy. Simply typing “London newborn photographer” into a search engine will bring thousands of results, so how are you supposed to decide which photographer to hire?
