True to what is considered ‘traditional’ newborn photography, I keep the baby portraits natural. The baby is naked or covered with a wrap, and I use a soft colour palette which is carried through from the backdrops to the props that I use.
Themed baby portraits
But you may not be aware that I also offer themed baby portraits. These are taken during your newborn photoshoot (with prior agreement).
Themed baby portraits can include special props belonging to the mum or dad, such as a guitar or sporting equipment, for example.
Or they can be based on a specific theme. This themed baby portrait was created because baby Samuel’s daddy was a milk farmer. I’m pleased to say that the parents adored it!
Baby’s first Halloween photo
I’ve also created these adorable Halloween themed baby portraits.
While your baby will not have a clue what Halloween is all about, it can still be great fun to create a Halloween-themed photo if you have an October-born baby!
I have all the Halloween-themed props – the pumpkin, the headband and hats, the autumnal leaves and seasonal accessories. Of course, the use of all this is included within your newborn photography session fee.
So if you are visiting me for a newborn photoshoot anytime during October, do let me know if you would like to have your child photographed with my special Halloween setup!
Other occasions I can create themed baby portraits
For any other occasions throughout the year, such as Christmas and Easter, themed baby portraits are also a possibility. Simply discuss your requirements with me at the time of booking and I will do my very best to cater for your individual needs.
Whatever the theme, I will create a special portrait that you will treasure forever!
Celebrating the arrival of your ‘bundle of joy’
Whether you prefer the traditional or the themed baby portraits, newborn photography is done to celebrate the arrival of your new ‘bundle of joy’. I’ll capture incredibly magical moments in your baby’s first days of life.
