A lovely client recently shared some behind-the-scenes photos and videos from her newborn photoshoot. I'm sharing them here to give you a feel for the kit I bring with me and how I set it up in your home to give you the kinds of photos you see on my website.
As well as a camera and a couple of lenses (for wide-angles and close-ups of tiny features), my newborn photography kit consists of a studio light, and a beanbag and frame which holds your choice of coloured backdrop. I bring wraps for your baby which will co-ordinate with the backdrops you choose. I often start a newborn session by wrapping baby - this helps them feel cosy, warm and secure and can help settle them for the photography. The following video shows me wrapping the baby.
Finally, I've recently created a video explaining why I do what I do - capturing newborns whilst they're still tiny before time flies past and they grow up fast!
