Baby Eva – A Sydney Newborn Photography Session at home
Welcome to the world little Eva! We travelled down from the Blue Mountains to Sydney this week for this very special newborn photography session where over 3 hours in the comfort of their beautiful home, we photographed this darling little girl who slept peacefully and was so very content in the arms of her Mummy.
Using simple wrapping techniques and a few of our favourite bespoke head pieces, we were able to capture classic and simple newborn photos with the family looking on.
We had a beautifully warm room to work in which kept Eva sleeping and when she became a bit restless we just gave Mummy some time to feed and resettle her. “It’s always about keeping the baby as calm and content as possible. It is essential that new parent’s are relaxed and enjoy the photographic process. If the baby needs time to feed or be settled, we simply wait until they are ready” says Sarah our head photographer and master baby whisperer.
After some photos where Eva is tightly wrapped with precision, we gradually were able to unwrap her to have some naked newborn shots and some skin to skin time with Mum. These are some of our favourite photos.
Classic bare baby photos in black and white are timeless. They make for beautiful wall images and wall collages for the baby nursery and acrylic blocks on the bedside tables in the parents’ bedroom.
The addition of Eva’s grandparents to the photo shoot just made it even more special. We absolutely love the mages of this newborn baby on grandad’s hands. The contrast of the young and old skin and the large hands on this time little body is another timely reminder of how small and brand new little Eva is.
It is so incredibly special when the extended family take the time to come along to our newborn photo sessions as it adds another dimension to the shoot but more importantly it will give Eva very special memories as she grows older of her larger family.
If you are currently pregnant and looking for professional baby photography, plan ahead and book us for your newborn photo session within the first 10 days of your baby being born. This is the best time if you are wanting sleeping and bare skin photos. We can even come to the hospital in the first couple of days for birth photography and newborn hospital photos. After this 10 day period, your baby will be growing quickly, changing sleep patterns and opening their eyes a lot more.
If you have a newborn baby and it is over 10 days old or it is a few weeks or months old, we can still achieve beautiful professional baby photos. The style of the baby photography just changes. Head over to our baby gallery to have a look at our older baby photography shoots here.
