I really enjoyed this home shoot with Ana and her newborn son Aston. For the past 7 years, I have been photographing my newborn work in the studio with very set ways of photographing. We did start this session in the studio however when Aston proved to be quite alert, I suggested that we try a home shoot to get more variety of images.
The atmosphere in Ana’s home was very relaxed and Aston was bright and alert which was perfect for these photos. What I loved about this session was producing these important photos in the setting of Ana’s first home as a family.There was something special about that. Having these memories of Aston’s nursery and the home documented in a narrative photography style. First baby..first home.
Ana heard about my work through the wonderful Julie Clarke who does amazing calm birth classes and transition to parenthood classes and workshops. I met Julie when I actually did her Calm Birth class 5 years ago when I was expecting my son and I found it extraordinarily helpful. Julie’s course helped to remove the fear of childbirth and helped me manage the birth.
There are so many photos of this session with Ana and Aston that I love – there’s some cute newborn smiling photos and Aston yawning. Beautiful photos in the nursery, in the main bedroom and the main living room. All real and relaxed. I love newborn lifestyle photography!
