Saturday I did some photography in area that is completely new to me. I dabble in most things and can be found photographing more than just models, such as families, pets, the occasional wedding etc. They are not usually things I advertise, but if people approach me for them, then I will do it.

I recently had a birth in the family, and as a gift I wanted to offer my services and create some imagery of the newborn for the mum & dad to treasure. I took a few backdrops with me, as I like to have options, and borrowed a selection of things from work such as article flowers, selection fo fabrics & a crate.

I only used two lights for these, as you don’t really need anything overbearing. I had to my right my Bowens with a softbox, and my left my other Bowens with a translucent umbrella on.

I am really happy with the results I got, having never photographed a newborn before. I know they always say you shouldn’t work with animals or children, but I I throughly enjoyed doing these photos. I plan to do images for them every month and produce a photobook for them to mark her 1st year.

Please see below for a few more images I shot. Let me know your thoughts!
