The Milk Spot…

Here she is again, my stunning daughter Millie.
Whenever I photograph a baby, I ask the parents if there’s any blemishes on the babies face that they would want removed from the image.
Small cuts from their fingernails as they scratch their face in the throws of tiredness both desperate to sleep yet stay awake at the same time.

The scratches always get removed, it’s not a feature of their face.
But milk-spots…
Usually the parent will want them removed, but for me, this is a part of them.
In the younger months the baby is covered in them, gradually disappearing as they grow.

In this image Millie still has two, and they are staying in the photo.
We as parents want this memory, soon they will be gone and her face will change ready for new images and memories.

So as a parent, when you get photographs done of your baby, think to yourself, what really is a blemish?
What is, and what isn’t a feature of your baby? What do you want remembered? 

Be sure to discuss this with your photographer at your next baby shoot.

Introducing Millie Rich

We are very proud to introduce our gorgeous daughter into the world.
Here she is at just 3 days old, 5lb and 1oz.
Cute as a button and soooooo tiny!!

I didn’t do the usual photo shoot as having the studio set up in the nursery while she sleeps in with us, we can take photos anytime we like 🙂

Very proud parents of this scrumptious little one.

Introducing Isla – My Gorgeous Niece

It’s always wonderful as a Bournemouth Newborn Baby Photographer to photograph a baby less than a week old. But when it’s your niece it’s just that little more special.

Being this small, and obviously not going to move anywhere, we were able to do the shoot on the sofa!

Unprofessional? Not at all. Space to do a photo shoot is of a premium at most houses and doing the shoot in the comfort of your own home is essential with newborns as you don’t need to take half of the house with you (why do babies need so much stuff???)

These were a simple light set up, a white throw and some pillows.
