Just a little check in with you all, with all the craziness and uncertainty that is going on in the world, I just wanted to see how everyone is doing. I know a lot of my clients are upset and anxious they have missed 'the newborn stage' for their photographs while this is I suppose true in certain ways, it does not mean we wont get some gorgeous photographs you can treasure once all this is over. With the lock down effecting pretty much everyone in some shape or form I find myself with out clients photographs to edit, so I thought I would actually sort photographs of my own children. I have decided to design and have made a gorgeous photo album of a medley of my children's 'newborn' photos. Now I do mean Newborn in inverted commas because it turns out the photographs I have of my children are out of the stage most photographers class ideal for newborn photography. Do I love them any less? No! Do they still look small, new to the world? Yes! Trust me I am writing this next to my nearly 7 year old, while he listens to his iPod, they grow up fast... I couldn't tell you off the top of my head how old he was in the photos I took of him (without looking at the date.), he could still fit in my arms, he was in tiny vests, he was keeping me up all night screaming (a lot) He was still my new baby.
So please rest assured we will still get beautiful photographs for you, it might take longer. Your baby or babies might be more awake by then but generally with patience they will go sleep. We only need a short time to get the sleepy photos. I will have drinks and biscuits for you, meaning you can sit back and relax. They may have have outgrown some of the newborn props I have... isn't it fun to be creative and unique? I personally think a pandemic is an ideal time to throw the rule back out the window, don't you think?
Please message me if you want to discuss your New baby session for when this has all passed. For all you new Mummy's a massive congratulations to you.
My lovely tribe while we stay home and safe in our garden.
Take care everyone and stay safe. Stay home.
