Newborn baby photoshoot at home

Are you a new parent or are you expecting? Then it’s time for you to consider booking a newborn baby photoshoot for your family. As a new parent you will have a lot of things going on. Having a newborn baby is really hard work. If you’re not yet a parent just wait for it. At the same time though, this will be one of the most rewarding periods in your life which should be captured with a family photoshoot with newborn. Probably hard to imagine on forehand. Perhaps also even sometimes hard to recognise when you have a crying baby in your arms refusing to fall asleep.

We all know how delicate and wonderful babies are when they are born: those tiny hands and feet, those light smiles on their faces. They bring joy and amazement in everyone’s life, especially in their parent’s life. The parent’s love is perceptible, in every look they give to their small babies, in every gentle caress, in every delicate kiss. We all know also how fast life goes by. Just a snap of the fingers and that delicacy and lightness is already gone and we strive to remember those first days when our kids were born and they were just entering our world. To help to fix in your memories those instants, those days, at Studio Milla we decided to open up a series of opportunities for newborn parents with our lifestyle newborn photography.

Did you just recently give birth to a little one? There is something so special about that moment, that you can’t explain in words. That’s why when someone says, a picture is worth a thousand words, it’s true. As a becoming mother, you can choose to take a newborn photoshoot with us and we will follow you on those exciting months while you are waiting for your baby to come to life. Then, we will have time to take pictures also of your new family and of your beautiful baby, of course!

Alternatively, if you want to have a special memory of those days, we offer also the opportunity of a comfortable session in your house where the newborn will feel at his or her ease. In fact, we will create at home your own special set where your newborn will be the protagonist. Every baby is different from each other and everyone has unique characteristics that deserve to be highlighted: a special way of moving the little feet, a curve of the mouth, and a spark of curiosity in their eyes. As professional newborn photographers, we like to keep things simple and classic, for you and for your babies. Therefore, this means, no stress, no rush. Just the simplicity of your own environment, the comfort and warmth of your house. We would love to accompany you in those first days with your baby when everything seems a turmoil and you are hit by a hurricane of love and energy. We would love to be with you while capturing the emotions of those days.

Once the baby is sleeping peacefully, you as a parent will be able to enjoy a blissful moment admiring the wonders of life. In order to save and treasure these special times you should not miss out on booking a photoshoot for yourself and your child. By hiring professional photographers to do a newborn baby photoshoot with you, you will get a beautiful collection to remember these times. That children grow up so fast is common talk amongst parents. But it really is true. Especially in the early stages the baby will grow so quickly that soon it won’t be a baby anymore.

With a vast range of possible poses and expressions to capture, we do not need props and special settings. A simple blanket, the baby’s cot, natural light and a classic black and white composition: the result will be unique and it will emphasize the beauty of your newborn. So do not worry about preparation and timing: we will take care of it and we will be patient and wait for the perfect shot. It is relaxed newborn photography and it will not require any particular artifice: we will just portray the result of your love.

It’s so important to capture those firsts

There will be a lot of firsts in your child’s life. The first word, the first step, the first day of kindergarten and so on. These will all be special times that will fill your heart with joy. But as a parent, especially if it’s also your fist child, the first months will be a very unique time. Therefore, you should not forget to get some lasting memories from this period. And what better way than to make a booking with us for a newborn baby photo session in London.

Perhaps you are worried about how your little gem will handle the newborn baby photoshoot. Don’t be! We have lots of experience working with children of all ages. Making your child feel comfortable is the number one priority. After all, we are striving for beautiful pictures that will bring you joy to look at. A peacefully sleeping newborn baby. Just look at those little feet…

Things you can do to prepare

If you want to make sure that your newborn baby photoshoot goes smoothly there are some things you can do to prepare. For example, it is a good idea to make sure that your child is well fed before the photo shoot. All of us can be a bit cranky when we are hungry right? However newborn babies who are hungry and tried can be a nightmare. So, make sure that the baby is fed relatively soon before the actual photo shoot.

Quite often newborn babies tend to fall asleep soon after they have eaten. This is the time that you should use for the newborn baby photoshoot. A well-fed baby sound asleep should not cause you any problems during the photo shoot. Although, if you want to put some special outfit on your baby, remember to do that first. You don’t want to wake the little one up.

Of course you can also try to go for newborn photos with a bit more action. Obviously in this case, it’s not a good idea to feed your newborn immediately before the photo shoot. If you do that, the baby will almost certainly be too tired. It can be a bit of a patience game to get the best shots here. What you want is for the baby to smile and have a bit of sparkle in the eyes. Whether looking directly into the camera or interacting with one of the parents.

More ideas that can help

If there is a special toy that your newborn baby particularly enjoys to sit with, it’s also a good idea to use it. If this is not your first child, you can also consider involving the elder siblings to the newborn baby photoshoot. A two year old boy admiring his little sister for instance. Later on these pictures will be lovely souvenirs to have. Not just for you as a parent but also for the children, as they won’t remember anything from these earliest of times.

Another important thing to consider when planning your newborn baby photo shoot, is whether to do colour or black and white. We do love black and white lifestyle newborn photographs as they are classic and timeless. So almost all of our newborn photo shoots come with black and white style.

The type of photos that you get from a black and white photo shoot tend to  have a more artistic look than colour photos. With the right light and right contrast these photos can almost become little works of art. Artworks for your private family collection. That being said though, with colour photos you can create a beautiful warm atmosphere that black and white can never give.
