Newborn photography is a lot harder than it looks but just as satisfying! These teenie weenie little people will cry, poop and pee anytime, anywhere, and moving them around during photo sessions has to be done very carefully as they are so small, fragile and delicate. Each session usually takes about 2 hours and sometimes longer - allowing ample time for breastfeeding, changing and getting baby back to sleep.
Every baby is unique but the rule of thumb for newborn photoshoot is the earlier, the better. The ideal time is between 6 - 12 days after birth. That's when baby sleeps more and curl easier into cute poses - as long as baby is warm, comfortable and tummy is full! In other words, baby needs to be 'milk-drunk' during the session :D
We've been waiting for baby Carson's arrival for what seemed to be a long time! At least to me, lol. When the day finally came, I happily lugged my roller bag, basket and carrying case to Carson's new home (hubby thought I was moving out!) and boy oh boy, was I excited :)
He has such beautiful soft brownish hair and look so much like his big brother Callum. I wanted to capture big-brother-little-brother moments but according to Mummy, big brother has an overwhelming affection for his little bro - he gets too excited at times and forgets to be gentle! So Daddy came out with the idea of placing Callum's baby images in the background.
This little man is now 4 months young (yup, another belated blog post - sorry!) and getting adorable each day just like every single baby I know. Mummy said three boys (including Daddy) is enough but I'm think this family needs another girl to balance things up! What say you? :D
