Northern Ireland newborn photography: baby Sam

Two years ago I took some newborn photos for a beautiful baby called Jack, and a few weeks ago, on Jack’s second birthday, I was back to meet his new little brother Sam! There was a bit of screaming at this photoshoot, but after a nice feed Sam soon settled down for some lovely sleepy shots. Here are a few of my favourites from his first ever photoshoot…

Northern Ireland newborn photography – Peter

In my last newborn blog post I put a little message about the importance of contacting me well in advance of your due date, to make sure that I can keep space in my diary to capture your baby photos in those all-important first few days, and today I just want to say that if you are considering having maternity photos taken then the same advice applies! Recently I’ve had a few enquiries for maternity photoshoots and I’ve sadly had to turn them all down. If you contact me when you are already 8 months pregnant unfortunately it is unlikely that I will be able to fit you in before the baby is born. I would recommend contacting me around the 6 month mark to make sure we have plenty of time to schedule a session.

With that piece of housekeeping out of the way, it’s time for a sweet baby! I’d like to introduce newborn Peter, such a cute little boy – I do love a baby with a full head of hair! Here are a few of my favourite photos from his first photoshoot : )

Northern Ireland newborn photography – Jamie {8 days}

Before I introduce you to beautiful baby Jamie, I just want to put a quick note here for anyone viewing this blog post who is interested in newborn photos. I know I say it a lot but I really can’t stress enough how important it is to contact me well in advance of your due date to book. Over the summer I’ve been turning away two or three newborn enquiries every week, because parents have contacted me after the baby has been born. Babies don’t stay tiny for long, so it really is necessary to have your session in the first 7-10 days if you’d like these lovely sleepy shots. Unfortunately if you contact me after the baby has been born it is very unlikely that I’ll be able to fit you in, especially during the busy wedding season (March-October and around Christmas). I’m now taking newborn bookings for babies due from mid-October onwards, if you’d like more information then please feel free to get in touch using the Contact link above.

And now on to the real star of this blog post, newborn Jamie! Jamie had to stay in hospital for a little bit longer than normal, but thankfully he was feeling a bit better after a week and we were able to have his photoshoot at just 8 days old. He was a hungry boy, but after lots (and lots) of milk, he settled down nicely for us and we got some really sweet sleepy shots. I just love his little quiff! : )

Northern Ireland newborn photography – David

I always say that one of my favourite things about family photography is revisiting families every so often and seeing how they’re growing and changing. I’ve photographed David’s big brother Ben a couple of times now, first meeting him when he was just a few weeks old, so it was really lovely to be able to take new baby David’s newborn photos too. I think I can definitely see a little bit of a family resemblance! Here are a few of my favourite photos from the session…

And of course I couldn’t resist getting few shots of Ben – he’s grown a lot since his newborn and 9 month photos!
