A few months ago I photographed gorgeous Kate and and her beautiful bump at Formby Beach. I have been photographing this lovely family for a few years now and it was such an honour to get to photograph this exciting new chapter for them. Even better was getting to photograph their newborn at home in Liverpool when she was just 3 weeks old. I’m so in love with her name, Polly Primrose, how gorgeous! .
LIVERPOOL NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY AT HOME – What can you expect?
My newborn sessions are very informal and relaxed so I expect absolutely nothing from you other than to cuddle your baby. The sessions are a snap shot of that newborn bubble and all that comes with it. You don’t need to spring clean your house, you don’t need to worry about what you’re going to wear. All you need to do is just sit down and let me work around you so when you look back at your photos they represent your newborn bubble honestly. I don’t edit out on newborns milk spots, scratches or dry skin because this is how newborns come and they require no editing. That’s how I always wanted to remember my babies when they were tiny.
This newborn stage is so short that to have a set of images documenting this lovely time is so special. Little Polly is now just over a years old and Kate told me that when she looked at these pictures she just couldn’t believe how tiny she was! What we both especially love about this set is seeing the bond that William and his baby sister had even three weeks in. I didn’t pose him or even direct him in any way, I think it’s so important with little ones who’ve just became a big brother for sister to just let them be however they are comfortable. William was constantly checking in on Polly to see how she was and having a little chat. The absolute cutest was the song he made up for her “William and Polly are going on an adventure having so much fun!” Kate tells me he is just as devoted to his little sister now. It really is a privilege to get to see families grow and I am so excited for their annual autumn shoot next month!
