I adore newborns (and really, who doesn't?!) and I was very much looking forward to meeting Hunter, his parents and big brother Tom and welcoming them into the studio for Hunter's newborn session.
As with all newborn sessions, the heater was cranked up to make the studio the perfect temperature for Hunter, which left the rest of us a bit toasty!
Oh what a sweetie he was! Hunter slept pretty much the entirety of the shoot, stopping briefly for a feed before I wrapped him up and put one of my favourite bonnets on him.
He was so sleepy I finally managed to use my new bucket prop! Every time I got it out in previous sessions, the babies woke up; I was starting to think I'd never get 'that' shot. It was definitely worth the wait, Hunter rocked it!
Baby safety is paramount at the Little Cherubs studio; shots including props or babies 'balancing' are usually made up of two photos blended together, or I ask a parent to spot baby and edit them out in post production. It's just not worth the risk of injury!
Hunter had the sweetest eyelashes; I love capturing the tiny details that you inadvertently forget as they grow. The way their mouth pouts, tiny toes, gorgeous back rolls. Oh they grow so fast...!
I always ask parents if they have something special they'd like to include in their sessions, to bring it along and I'd try to incorporate it as best I can. Normally it's a little teddy or a special blanket so I was very excited when Hunters dad showed me his beret!
I love shooting something a little different! And I thoroughly enjoyed Hunters newborn session - he was a superstar!
Thanks for stopping by!
