Mother & Daughter - Newborn.

This is what makes me love my job even more, photographing intimate moments between a Mother & her newborn baby girl. I love making my clients happy so photographing something as special as this really leaves a special place in my heart.

I don't do that many newborn shoots, mainly cause people think I am purely an outdoor photographer for 'grown up' families. However I treat my newborns shoots exactly the same as my family shoots, but always at the family home unless stated otherwise by my clients. I have a different approach than your normal overly staged newborn shoots. I prefer capturing as natural as possible with focus on the relationship; as I believe this creates more powerful imagery.

So here's a few from my latest shoot which I am very proud of. Not cause of my work, but Shinead being brave & requesting 'skin to skin' photos with her new baby Nila. Something that not everyone would feel comfortable with so when she suggested it, I knew it was going to be an exciting shoot.

We will both cherish these images for different reasons & it brings a smile to my face thinking of Nila looking at these when she's older.
