Newborn Baby Photography Camden


Newborn Photography in Camden

Hello and welcome to my blog, in today’s post I’m going to be sharing some recent photographs and talking about my newborn baby photography in Camden in North London. Since my move to North London seven years ago I’ve found myself discovering new bits of the capital as I travel around photographing newborns, babies, and families all over the city. Camden has a special place in my heart, newborn baby photography sessions are always such great fun and the combination of beautiful houses and flats, stunning parks, and the vibrancy of the streets mean that sessions are always creative and varied and exceed my clients expectations.

How do newborn baby photography sessions work?

My newborn photography sessions take place at your home. I find this works so well as you have everything to hand and so can be completely comfortable and relaxed. It also, importantly, means that the pictures are a reflection of your life at this incredibly special time. We can take photographs of your newborn baby snuggling on your bed and you can sit with them in your favourite nursing chair. I can record the details of their nursery and how they like to sleep in their cot, perhaps under a blanket knitted by a friend or relative. These little details are so precious and will be such a source of delight when you talk to your child about them as they grow up.

I’ve been photographing newborns and babies for twenty years now and so you can be sure you are in safe hands when you book me to photograph your family. Indeed I’m’ the only family photographer in the entire Europe, Middle East and Africa region to be singled out by Canon to work as a brand ambassador – a testament to the creative and beautiful photography I can offer you.

Newborn baby photography sessions in Camden tend to last a morning but they are flexible as we work around your baby and tiny ones don’t have any kind of schedule, if they settle into a four-hour feed as soon as I arrive that’s no problem, I only ever do one session in a day so there’s no rush if we need to take our time.

What types of pictures can you expect from a newborn baby photo shoot?

Over the course of our newborn baby photography session in Camden I’ll take a wide variety of images. I love to take portraits of your tiny baby both asleep and awake and also all the little details that you will want to remember, the curl of their hair and their tiny hands and feet.

I also love to include parents in the pictures and these moments of shared joy as you look down on your baby are a delight. Siblings are always a hilarious addition to any newborn baby photo shoot, and I’m always thrilled when I’m told there are older brothers and sisters to include, the more the merrier as far as I’m concerned. As one of four children myself I love the chaos of a large family as well as the quiet intimacy of a small one. Grandparents are, of course, always welcome and these pictures will be treasured so much as your child grows up.

Black and white newborn baby photography

As you will have noticed from my blog and website all my newborn baby photographs are taken in beautiful black and white. These images are timeless and will look as good when your baby is grown as they do now. I think this is important as the pictures will be for them to treasure as they become adults and have children and grandchildren of their own. Family photographs are part of your family story and it’s lovely to ensure they will stand the test of time.

Black and white pictures are also stunningly beautiful. There’s a mystery and a magic to monochrome that I love and is so well suited to newborn baby and family photography. Monochrome captures emotion and relationships without the distractions of fashion which will, of course, date over time. These images will look amazing in fifty year’s time, what a wonderful gift to give to your children.

Outdoor newborn baby photography in Camden

If the weather is kind we can also venture outside to take stunning newborn baby photographs in some of Camden’s beautiful parks. Home to world famous locations such as Regents Park, Hampstead Heath or Regents Canal as well as smaller but equally lovely parks such as Waterlow we have a lot of options for stunning outdoor newborn photographs. I love to visit the parks near you which will become such a part of your lives as your newborn baby grows up – the parks where you will walk in all weathers and where your baby might feed the ducks or play on the swings, the parks you will have picnics in and while away the summer days. These places will be so full of memories and so it’s lovely to record these early moments in them as part of your newborn baby photography session.

Outdoor newborn pictures are also really beautiful, and it adds such variety to your photo shoot to have some indoor and some outdoor pictures. Including the environment whether that is the stunning landscaping of our glorious London parks or the architecture and interior details of your home, adds an extra dimension to your newborn baby photography in Camden.
