As a Portishead newborn photographer the travel to this session was easier than most. They literally live opposite me. They are such a lovely family and asked me to photograph their new addition. 2 week old Charlie. He is so adorable and at 10lbs has the most gorgeous squishy face. They asked for the session to be 100% lifestyle so that it was as relaxed as possible for big brother Seb.
A lifestyle newborn photography session is very different to more posed newborn photography. I think the amount of smiles and giggles in this session show why. It was very natural relaxed. A newborn baby grows so quickly and the time goes past in a blur of sleepless nights. It is a real privilege to be able to photograph some of those precious memories for them to keep forever.
Seb is too adorable for words and decided to play peekaboo with me whilst his mummy was having a cuddle with his little brother. This picture just really makes me smile. Charlie’s expression just adds to the moment.
He couldn’t resist coming for a bit of a cuddle with his little brother though.
Mummy Alison has absolutely the best laugh.
I love images of Dads playing with their newborn baby
After all the smiles and laughter we did calm it down for a bit for some cuddles. As a Portishead Newborn Photographer I am very fortunate as lots of the houses around here are perfect backgrounds for photography.
As a newborn photographer when I’m photographing a family with an older sibling it’s normally photographs of their older child with the new baby that are the most important to the parents. Seb is really looking forward to when he can share his love of transformers with his brother but is a bit disappointed that he can’t play with them already!
This is Charlie’s favourite position. Having cuddles from his Mummy.
And time for more sleep!
