One of the most exciting photo shoots a professional photographer can take on is a bump to baby assignment. When you are taking pictures of a women in late pregnancy, the atmosphere in the room is lovely you can feel the expectation, then and a few weeks later to photography their newborn baby, is something else…
I recently photographed Holly Sutton at and her beautiful newborn baby and completely loved the experience. I wondered what it is like for someone on the other side of the camera?
I asked Holly how she felt being photographed as some people understandably feel very nervous coming to the studio for a pregnancy photo shoot, and this is what she said;
” I chose Yvette because I love her style of photography. My experience with Yvette was lovely. I was completely at ease and really enjoyed the photo shoot and the pregnancy images are exactly what I was hoping for”
With newborn babies, as a photographer you have to be completely understanding that in some cases this is the babies (and parents!) first trip out, you need to allow as much time as the clients need. I was pleased that Holly’s feedback was very positive “I would absolutely recommend the newborn shoot to other new mums and have done already, the studio was so relaxed I never felt stressed at all and I love the photographs.
I wish Holly and her beautiful family all the best for the future and I would encourage people to go through this experience, these are days that you cannot recapture, another client said she was so pleased she had photographs taken, as she knew it was her last baby and she wouldn’t have the chance to do this again, so don’t let the opportunity slip away.
