Newborn Shoot

February 24th, 2013 admin Blog No comments

I had the best time photographing newborn baby Morgan earlier in the week.

Morgan was 10 days old and so adorable, with such a lovely temperament.  We arrived at his house just outside Castle Douglas on a glorious sunny morning, and whilst Morgan’s mum topped him up we set up in the lightest room in the house. It was a small room, but it’s amazing how small a space you need for somebody so tiny!  We also put the heaters on high so as to make the room very warm, so that Morgan didn’t feel the cold when we took off his clothes.  Once we were ready to go, I took Morgan and calmly, quietly lay him down and soothed him back to sleep.

The beauty of newborns in the first two weeks of life is that they sleep most of the time.  I love capturing them when sleeping, as not only do you get some adorable little moments, you can also capture little details like their tiny fingers and toes, which would otherwise not be as easy.  They aren’t this new looking for very long, so it’s a lovely keepsake for any parent to hold onto.

I was surprised when I finished the two hours spent with him, to not have heard him cry once. I was even expecting it to get messy when his nappy was off, but I managed to escape that too!

Here are a few shots from the session…
