Meet Teddy! The Son of Amy Carr and James Watson. He was born on 7th October 2017 at 9lb 6oz. Teddy had his photoshoot at 2 and half weeks old. He refused to settle during the first half of the shoot, we had everything in place to ensure he would be nice and sleepy for the shoot. We fed him just before we started, put him in his Moses basket, changed his nappy, but every time we tried to move him to get him into position, he would stir and wasn’t impressed. We persisted and he finally settled down. He was such an angel after this though, he even moved into one of the positions him self which only required a few tweaks. This just goes to show that not every shoot goes smoothly as it is made out to be, but with persistence and patience, the results speak for themselves.
This photoshoot took place in the living room of Amy’s parents house, a behind the scenes photo will be posted below to see the set up. I am fully flexible to come to your house in the comfort of your home, where the baby is comfortable with the temperature and the smells or you can come to my home office where I will be set up ready to go when you get here.
It is important for the parents to keep calm and don’t worry about it, we will get there in the end if they do not settle, and even when they do not settle, the photos are still beautiful. This is why I offer two packages. The Premium package is designed so you will have me for either the whole morning or afternoon. This way, if the baby is not settling, we have plenty of time to get the dreamy sleepy photos newborns provide when they are asleep. That said, even if they really don’t settle after trying everything possible, we can still get gorgeous awake photos.
As always, I set out to capture the beautiful details of the baby which include the feet, hands and facial features. This really brings the final album together as a whole, to really capture the beauty of a newborn baby!
At the time of writing this blog, Teddy has just smiled for the first time. I can’t wait to capture this in his next photoshoot!
