I'm lucky, I'm one of those people who can honestly say that I love what I do, it's true, I love my job for many reasons. Taking photographs for families is a wonderful thing, getting to be a part of the really special moments in someones life is an absolute honour and I will never take it for granted, One of the most amazing parts of my job is being trusted to capture the first few days of a new life. Photographing newborn babies is always special, but when that baby is the first child of a past wedding couple, well, that's really special.
Holly Rose is one of this babies. A few years ago I had the pleasure of photographing the beautiful wedding of her Mummy and Daddy, and now I've had the pleasure of capturing Hollys' newborn photographs for them to treasure forever.
Hollys' Mum, Dawn, contacted me when she first became pregnant and we scheduled a date in for her expected due date. Holly didn't make us wait to long, she arrived right when she was supposed to and came to my studio when she was just a couple of weeks old.
Her session was perfect, sometimes babies will be hard to settle or don't want to sleep, but Holly was fabulous. She slept like a dream and allowed us to capture lots of lovely images.
The newborn stage flies by so quickly, babies change every single day, so getting your session booked in while you are still pregnant is really important so that you don't miss the vital first few weeks. Once baby arrives you will be less likely to find the time to schedule your baby photographs, so my advice is that you start looking for your preferred newborn photographer near Glasgow, sometime around your 20 week scan. By scheduling your session at this time, you can be sure that you will get a slot with an experienced newborn photographer. My diary books up weeks in advance so late bookings are never guaranteed. There is the odd occasion when I will have space available though, so please get in touch if you're looking for a last minute newborn photography session with me. I can usually get the desired results with babies up to 21 days old.
Knowing what style of baby photographs you would like will help in your search for a local newborn photographer. Some people like lots of props and add ons, while others prefer more natural newborn photographs. Others may like in an in home lifestyle session, its entirely up to you.
Most of my newborn photographs are taken in my little studio space in Kilmalcolm, near Glasgow, my style is mostly quite natural with most of the focus being on baby. However, I do use some props and digital artistry to add some variation to your finished gallery and to leave you with beautiful images that will take pride of place in your heart and your home for years to come.
So if you are pregnant or have just had a baby and are looking for a newborn photographer near Glasgow, please get in touch. All of my session pricing and information is available on this website. I am currently booking for babies arriving in May 2017 onwards.
I hope to hear from you soon, but for now, I will leave you with Holly Rose when she was just 2 weeks new. The best little sleeper in town.
