Newborn baby photos – specialist newborn photographer Olney
I specialise in the photos of children and families and new babies. I love newborn images – welcoming a newborn baby into a family is such a special time and I really love the chance to be there to capture these emotions.
2013 was a year of lovely babies with lots of special moments. One of the best moments was photographing the South African model Minki Van Der Westerhuizen and her husband, Saracens Rugby player Ernst Joubert with their baby girl. The photos made the front cover of Hello magazine in South Africa and were featured in other magazines. This is a whole separate blog post that I will post shortly.
The following image was one of my favourite images of the entire year – this little lady arrived quite a few weeks early and was very tiny when I went to photograph her – I just love this fabulous big smile.
And it was great to do a mini-shoot of her at 6 months old in the autumn leaves – same cheeky grin – and lovely to see her getting bigger
This is another favourite – the sheer joy on this little fella’s face I just love. Great to have lots of pictures with mum and dad as well.
More fabulous baby smiles
I love to include siblings in shots as well
Another lovely shoot from the year was with 2 beautiful twin girls – twins shoots are great fun if a little crazy but these two were just little super models. Beautiful family all round infact.
So many lovely moments throughout the year it was hard to choose the images to post – so here are a mixture
Autumn is a great time of year and I love to incorporate the colours into the images to show the season the baby was born. Its not always warm enough to wrap up the baby and take them outside so sometimes I use leaves indoors. I collected these red leaves and preserved them especially to use for my Autumn babies.
I love to shoot older babies too – these sessions are wonderful to have a while after a newborn session, in order to mark a milestone like 6 months, or as a catch up session to show how much the baby has changed. These sessions are great fun and you can really see their little personalities developing.
If you’ve had a newborn session with me (or even elsewhere) and your baby is now older and sitting up or heading towards their first birthday get in touch for a catch up session. My main portrait site here has lots more examples of shoots with older children and the whole family.
