A couple of weeks ago I spent my sunday morning with a new little arrival and her family. Baby was just shy of 4 week at the time of session and still had all the newness!

Mum opted for a home session. These are so perfect and ideal with newborns. It makes the experience so much more relaxed and comfortable for everyone involved. It also allows us the time we need to get the perfect shots.

My newborn sessions are my only staged photographs, by this I mean positioning baby and waiting for them perfect moments. Baby during this session was a dream to work with. It took a little longer to get her settled in moments but thats why home sessions are so ideal when it comes to newborns.

On preparing for babys newborn session Mum had got a few outfit changes ready and we also arranged for some family pics. This is another part of newborn sessions I love, who says it just had to be baby alone? For all, a new arrival into a family means a family unit and that to is something that warrants to be photographed.

I shot most of the photographs in a window bay in the front room of their family home. The perfect lighting was beaming through giving the clear vision of daylight. She woke for some of the shots with her eyes wide open looking around, she especially loves looking out the window!

“Thank you Shianne, you have captured a whole lot of beautiful memories in each and every shot of baby. I could not of asked for anything more, I am so glad you were the one to capture the moments of her while she is so small. I will treasure baby’s first photos for a lifetime and you made the experience just magical”
