13 Days Old
We had the pleasure of welcoming Baby T into our studio for a newborn photoshoot along with mum and dad. A naturally beautiful family coming together, entrusting us to create their memories in a particularly hazy, sleepless time just 13 days after her arrival into the world.
We spoke with mum, Yinka to reflect on her experience of the baby photoshoot and asked what advice she has for expectant mums considering capturing their moments:
“This was our first major outing as a family and Matt clearly had a lot of experience with newborns – he was patient, very friendly and a great host. The studio was lovely and warm for our baby and we had lots of breaks with tea and biscuits. The shoot wasn’t at all how I had imagined it would be – I had failed to realise how much work goes into feeding in between shots, nappy changes and accidents but it was all worth it in the end! My favourite moments were watching her funny facial expressions, especially the spontaneous smiles. I also loved it when she pee’d all over my husband… definitely a mummy’s girl!
I think her dad enjoyed the shoot more than I did! I would let expectant mums know that it’s definitely worth doing – my little one has changed so much since, it’s nice to have the pictures to look back to those early days. I’d definitely do it again and my friend recommended Photographic Synergy’s Watch Me Grow package to us.”
I’m sure you’ll agree the images captured at our newborn photoshoot are beyond stunning… memories to be incredibly proud of.
