On Saturday I drove to the home of Jemma & Mike to meet their firstborn baby … 5 day old Madison. She was the most adorable little thing and very alert for her newborn photoshoot! I swear it’s almost as if they know we’re up to something! I could feel her beady eyes watching me over the few hours I was there as she only cat-napped. Considering Jemma had only just had a baby, she looked amazing and was most helpful in assisting with settling Madison into different poses.
Jemma had done her research on newborn sessions and had quite a few of her own props to use which I am very happy to use. One of Madison’s clever Nana’s had crocheted some little outfits for her to wear … so cute! We also incorporated a huge teddy that had been bought for Madison! She had a bit of wind as we fed her up a few times trying to get her off to sleep. They say babies don’t smile for quite a few weeks … it’s just wind. I managed to catch one of her ‘smiles’ as she cuddled up to giant teddy, which was really funny.
I know Madison will change and grow rapidly over the next few months so I hope her newborn photos will be a wonderful memory of how tiny she once was. I’ve selected a few images from her session below so you can see just how adorable she is!
