Photographing brand new babies holds a very special place in my heart. As a London newborn photographer my goal is always to produce images that capture this fleeting stage in your life in a beautiful but authentic and natural way.

I don’t put babies in baskets (the best place for the baby to be in is your arms) or use fancy props or hats to capture their newness (I’m of an opinion that the simpler the better and encourage parents to dress their new babies in simple, sleeveless white clothes).

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.

Here are just a few of my personal favourites from this newborn photoshoot, enjoy!
