The story behind this session…

When it comes to taking photos of a baby with their family, I am a stronger believer in less is more. No need for props, beanbags, special outfits. All that is needed, is gorgeous light and baby in the arms of family that love him. Without the pressure of ‘being posed’ and allowed to be themselves, children are naturally giving, they want to interact with the baby and they want to be a part of getting their photo taken. I loved this session because it it all of this and more.

She sat on the bed to burp him and this beautiful moment happened. No direction needed.

I love my baby lounger, the babies are comfortable in it and just look at the eye contact!

Happy relaxed baby, happy relaxed family.
