I am always so honoured when someone chooses me to photograph their baby, especially a second time. There are a lot of great photographers in Wigan, and being asked to document this special time in a family’s life is something that I do not take lightly.
I have had people ask me my favorite age of babies to photograph, and I have to say that newborn, or under 2 or 3 weeks, then around 6 months, and again around a year. Each age has its unique qualities for photography. Newborns are just amazing because they are SO little, and grow by the hour it seems. It is special to me, as a photographer, to capture newborns with their families, the way mom and dad look at their new baby, and how their older sibling interact. The connection with older siblings and family pets is also so sweet to document. I love posing sleepy newborns and getting the perfect posed shots as well. My style is more organic, so I don’t like to do anything too crazy or unnatural with poses, but come on… sleepy newborns are adorable!
