Baby Melissa came to my studio in SW London when she was just 6 days old.
I already knew the parents, as I photographed her big brother a few years ago, so everything was easier and quite relaxing. I remembered him very well because his was the quickest newborn session I ever did 🙂 The look so adorable together, right?
I asked mum a few questions and I hope they can help other parents too.
We saw you the first time at the Baby Show in London in 2013. We liked you the most out of other photographers because of your timeless style of photography and the way you capture the babies in your photos and also your friendly and easy going nature. My husband and me are realy pleased we had the photos done. It’s something we can look back on in years and enjoy.
Our first session with Joseph was very relaxed. At the time it was really helpful that you came to visit us in our house . From that we knew Melissa’s session would also be very relaxed. We had no problem trusting you with our baby and trusting that we would end up with some really fantastic photos! This time we enjoyed visiting your studio and seeing your set up (which was great), and loved it when we saw that Joseph’s photos were up on your wall 🙂
We just have Joseph (3) and Melissa. Joseph does like giving Melissa cuddles and talking to her. The cutest thing was actually this morning when Joseph said to Melissa ‘you are a pretty girl’ and then gave her a kiss.
We find Joseph gets bored, and therefore into mischief quite easily (as I’m sure do all toddlers)! Getting him out of the house for a run around on a daily basis or making time to do activities with him (eg crafts) tends to keep him focussed and out of mischief and therefore equals happy parents.
Melissa is quite young to have too many top tips yet, other than whilst its nice to get a routine established it doesn’t always work that quickly so easier and less stressful to go with the flow, they get there in the end!
We enjoy the Natural History Museum with Joseph, he loves looking around there.
Here a few more photos from their newborn session.
