Most of the babies who come to see me in the Samphire studio for their newborn portraits are usually no older than two weeks of gorgeous newness. Little Theodore, however, was slightly older at four weeks old, and those extra fourteen days can make such a difference as to how the babies interact and behave. An older baby tends to be much more awake, as you can see in his images, and much more aware of their surroundings. However, the cosy studio, a full tummy, and some expert wrapping soon settled him back into a restful slumber and enabled me to capture those adorable new baby poses for Mum to treasure.
One of parents’ primary concerns about a newborn session is whether their little one is going to sleep at the appropriate time but do not worry. I have lots of expertise and techniques, not to mention patience, which ensures your little one more often than not will end up in the land of nod. But if baby is determined to not miss a thing, I follow their lead and just work with them and still capture great images to treasure.
Both Mum and Grandma came along to Theodore’s session, and when this beautiful young man was all snuggled up in the soft knits and layers, in blues, greys and cream (such a gorgeous combination!) even Gran had a tear in her eye. Not hard to see why, just look at him.
Here is a small selection of my favourite images from his newborn session with Samphire Photography. Enjoy xx

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!
