Newborn Baby Photography Ideas. Photo shoots at Edinburgh studio.
We used Armands when our son was born in 2012 after seeing some of his newborn photography work on display.
We had such a good experience with him the first time, that when we found out we were expecting our second baby we contacted him right away to get booked up! The photos that we have from both shoots are amazing and are something that we will cherish forever, to remind us of when our babies were so little.
On both occasions, the photo session was very laid back and Armands and his assistant took care of everything – this was especially welcome given that our little girl was only 3 days old at her photoshoot and we were all shattered (although you would never know it from the great family pictures!!). I was really impressed at our second shoot when he had a now 3 year old boy to deal with.
He was always very calm with him and there was no pressure to get a certain shot with both kids, if they weren’t playing ball we just tried something else. We have been delighted with the images from both photoshoots and given the different packages that he offers for purchasing photographs, albums, frames etc. it is easy to get something really special without breaking the bank!
Studio Newborn Baby Pictures
Most of the times you will be arriving to our photography studio on London road. Here you will meet me, your newborn baby photographer, and I will lead you through the process and create your newborn baby pictures for you.. The advantage of doing newborn baby photos in the studio is that you have more options on what you could do. Lighting is controlled and you could have more variety of poses. You would also have access to all props and accessories to create cute baby photos. During the studio session you would have on hand one of my professional assistants. Both of them have wast amount of experience with little babies and if you wish they can advise you on various issues. Sessions are very relaxed and sometimes parents do a little power snooze too.
Home Newborn Photography Sessions
If you are after more relaxed newborn baby photography with some natural light, then home visit baby photo sessions are perfect for you. I would photograph in more documentary style with less posing involved.
Newborn baby photographer arrives to you, no need to leave the house. More natural photos of baby and family. If you have missed that first 4 week window, this is perfect opportunity to create more awake photos
Challenges of having home session would be less choice of props and accessories and if the house/flat is small, it might be difficult to get good available light. I have so many ideas when it comes to taking newborn photos at home.
Armands arrived at our house for a photoshoot when our second baby Esmie was just six weeks old. You cannot help but like him, he has a lovely warm, relaxed and friendly nature. He was an instant hit with our three year old daughter Elise who by then end of the session she had him running around the house and playing games with her. We didn’t think she was going to let him leave.
Armands was professional with a wonderful talent and eye for an amazing photograph. On arrival he brought Danish pastries from the local bakery which is always a hit and we sat back with a cup of tea to discuss what he had in mind and he presented a small mood board to show his ideas of shooting our newborn plus family around our home. It was to be a documentary style shoot, which was a new angle for Armands, and we were to be a trial for him.
After showing him around our house he set to work and was thorough and fantastic, capturing moments as the morning progressed. It felt natural and easy.
As well as being an absolute hit with the toddler he was utterly amazing with our newborn and knew instinctively how to relax and calm her while moving her in to the required positions.
On presentation of our photographs / slideshow we were blown away. The slideshow brought emotional tears to both Robin and I eyes. Armands truly is a wonderful photographer with an amazing talent and we would not hesitate in recommending him and using him for our next event, whatever that may be!
Newborn Photos with Siblings and Pets
Time after time I get a requests of including pets in photos. I’m absolutely fine with that. As long as your pet listens to commands and doesn’t run around studio like lunatic, we should be fine ? During newborn photo sessions safety is first, so I’m quiet strict in terms of what is happening in studio. Most of the images I create with pets would be composites where I photograph baby individually and pet separately. After that this would be brought into software and stitched together. It is the most safest way to do this. I look forward to meet many more dogs and cats.
Family Photos with Newborns
Every single time I get to hear that parents doesn’t want to be in photos. Excuses like, I don’t look great, I need to loose weight, I’m shy etc. Let me tell you that you are not creating these portraits for yourself, you are leaving these as a memory for your children. They will want to see you in photos. It is my job as one of the best baby photographers to ensure that you will love your family photos. It doesn’t have to be cheesy look in camera, it can be simple cuddling baby image. I will do my best to pose you well and if need enhance the photo too. Please don’t be shy, create these images for your kids.
