Some newborn babies surprise me at how, at only a few days old, they have the most wonderful expressions

I wonder if babies with broad ranges of expressions are those that will grow up to be very clever! Only time will tell! This beautiful boy had the most lovely expressions I’ve seen in a newborn baby. He was happy and smiled a lot. He also had these beautiful quizzical expressions when he looked at my camera. And he loved looking at my camera! That’s probably because it was this big black object that was unlike anything else in the room! I was so happy this family in Sheen got in touch about a newborn photography session. We were all very comfy in their lovely home near Richmond Park.

Sometimes all you need is one room with bright light for lovely newborn photography

Whether you have a spacious house or not, it’s really just a matter of how much light comes into your home. Every house usually has one room that has lots of natural light and one of the first things I do is look for this room. Sometimes it may be the kitchen, but more often than not, one of the bedrooms is usually bright. When the sun came out for this photo shoot I couldn’t resist asking them to go close to the window in the brightest room in their house.  I captured the streaming light behind them. It makes for a rather dramatic newborn photos!
