Let it go!
If I had a penny for every time a new mum told me she most definitely did NOT want to be in the photos. After all, you’ve just given birth and may not be feeling your best. You might have gained a bit of baby weight and so think that now is not the time to get in front of a camera. Maybe you think now isn’t the time for a newborn photoshoot, London, but you’ll do it maybe later, when she grows a little and you’ve lost the weight.
I hear you.
I’m a mum, I’ve been pregnant twice and went through two natural childbirths, the first of which was pretty tricky. I absolutely did not feel my best afterwards.
However, seven years on and I can say one of the best things I ever did was capture both my sons on camera, in a beautiful, calm and gorgeous setting. These photos of their early days are some of the best memories I have from the baby fog you get otherwise after childbirth.
If you wait for the ‘right moment’, that right moment may never come and you’ll miss the chance to capture the most important thing in your life.
The way I photograph new mums is very sensitive to the fact you may not be feeling or looking your best. I use the best industry lighting, and 15+ years knowledge of how to position my camera and what lens to use to get the best, flattering angles.
Everyone who walks through my door is able to look truly stunning in their photos. No matter your size I’ll make sure you look your best.
Do it for your tiny child, who will love to see a photo of you holding them as a newborn when they grow up. How many times do we take images of our kids but we’re not actually in the photos ourselves? This is your chance to be seen. Be recorded. Make a legacy.
