Have you ever thought about booking in for photographic portraits to document your baby’s first year? Well, adorable Aubree’s parents did just that. She first came in to the Samphire studio for her newborn session when she was a teeny tiny little girl of just 10 days old, and we chose a plethora of pretty pinks for her session. She was a great little sleeper which meant I captured a wide variety of newborn poses for Mum and Dad, as you can see from the images below. I also incorporated fresh flowers into this session for added prettiness and the second image was done as a single portrait not a composite (2 images merged together) or using a digital backdrop, and it is just beautiful. Aubree also loved being wrapped up for the potato sack pose (Can you guess which one that is)?
All my newborn clients are invited back to the Samphire studio for a complimentary sitter session. That way I get to see how ‘my’ babies have grown plus also this is probably one of my most favourite ages to photograph babies at. At this stage babies may be sitting up or lifting themselves up onto all fours, bringing opportunities to pose them sitting in our vintage baskets or tin bath tub. These sessions are fun, and focus on capturing the personality of your little one! Aubree was only just sitting when she first came in for her milestone session and a little lack of confidence meant that she wasn’t as smiley as normal, so I invited her back into the studio when she was much more confident which really showed in her milestone sitter portraits. Opting to keep it feminine again with the addition of florals, my favourite image is the picture of Aubree in her fabulous flower bonnet.
Then, as she turned one, came her cake smash! Her gorgeous personality was really shining through and little Aubree was in her element! We carried the pink floral theme through into her cake smash session and teamed it up with my sparkly sequined romper which suited her down to the ground. This was my first time using floral hoops as part of the styling and it was brilliant setting some time aside beforehand to make them for this and future sessions. She was a real superstar and so much laughter ensued in this fun session. She enjoyed all parts of the cake smash session and for such a petite little girl she sure knew how to eat cake!!!!!! Plus, during the splash session at the end she was totally happy to cover herself in water. All in all, a very memorable and entertaining morning was had by all.
Mum and Dad commented on the gallery afterwards, “As usual we love them all! Thank you so much for another lovely experience. I’m so glad I have these pictures to look back on as she grows so quickly!” That makes me feel honoured that I have a part in creating those special memories.
So if you are thinking of booking in for images to document your baby’s first year, I would definitely recommend coming in at theses ages – newborn, sitter and first birthday – as they provide you with such a variety of images to hang on you wall and cherish for years to come xx
