Guildford family portrait baby session

Up to now I haven’t done a huge number of baby photo shoots – but if they all go as smoothly as this one did then I’m happy to take them on! I photographed baby K’s parents’ wedding a while ago, so was very pleased when they called me to arrange a photo session with their new arrival.

The weather wasn’t really warm enough to do the shoot outdoors, so I set up a mini studio in their home office. I decided to use a black background (a little unconventional perhaps) so as to remove all distractions and make the colours “pop”. I also felt it would make a nice change from the usual white “high key” background that lots of photographers use.

Baby K was very well behaved (apart from the occasional burp) and seemed very happy and relaxed in front of the camera.

The main trick with photographing babies I think is to time the session right, so that the baby is not feeling cranky because they are hungry or needing a nap. Very small babies can be photographed while asleep, but with baby K being a few months old I photographed her awake and looking alert and interested in what was going on.

“solo” and family group photos

After doing some “solo” shots with the baby I then took some with Mum and Dad and big sister individually, and of course everybody together. My aim with any portrait session is to give you a variety of images to choose from, while keeping things fun and relaxed and without taking too long!

Give me a call on 01483 600412 if you’d like to arrange a similar shoot with your family. A session usually takes less than an hour, and times can be arranged to suit your bundle of joy!

Now that’s a serious face! Or maybe she thinks I’m using the wrong settings on my camera? 😉
