We had our very first family photo shoot scheduled for when Jett was just 10 days old. It was a day of big firsts for us… a first for leaving our home since Jett was born, a first for a visit to Emma, (an amazing osteopath who had been working on me throughout my pregnancy) for me and for little Jett….
Riani, our photographer did a short write up on her blog of her account of our time together….
There is something special about photographing newborn babies which I can’t exactly put my finger on… Maybe it is because you have also photographed them whilst they were still in their mom’s tummies during the maternity photoshoot or maybe it is just their angelic aura’s.
And with that I present to you baby Jett. He is one of the most beautifully proportioned little babies that I have seen. The perfect word to describe baby Jett is content, he doesn’t cry and whenever you put him down he lies there outstretched as if he’s in heaven. He looks a lot like his father but then if you take a side on glance then he looks more like mom so we’ll just have to wait and see.
Outside the weather was cold & chilly but inside the studio the heater made everyone warm & cosy including baby. Let me share the two secrets to photographing newborn babies with you: keep them warm and make sure their tummies are full… This will ensure that you have a happy “newborn baby model” and the parents will be re-assured. Be ready to take photos
any time (even when you are changing the pose) as there is nothing cuter than a photo of a newborn baby yawning or smiling… J
