Baby Photography London - capturing stunning and memorable images
The greatest thing about being a photographer is meeting the people whose paths you might not have ever crossed in day to day life. And there is little else as rewarding than meeting and photographing a new family, or a new addition.
Newborn photography, toddler photography and children's photography is a wonderful way of allowing a professional photographer to capture stunning and memorable family images that a phone or point and shoot might fall short on. And like all great photography the success of the images has a lot to do with the comfort of the subject and how you interact with them and put them at ease.
With grown ups this is pretty straightforward but youngsters can on occasion be a challenge to say the least, but we wouldn't have it any other way ! A recent session I undertook for a client and their little one was a good opportunity for a professional like myself (and mum and dad) to help their child relax and enjoy the shoot. They had become quite upset and teary as very young children often do but the experience I have and the preparation and care we had built in to the session ensured that we achieved some wonderful photography in a challenging time.
And time is very important, you snap a picture in 1/125th of a second, faster than a blink and if all is well and you have allowed for tricky situations you can get your perfect image that quick. So it makes sense to book 2 to 3 hours for baby's photography to make sure should a child or baby need extra time away from the camera there is still ample opportunity to capture that magic moment.
From this shoot we were able to create these beautiful photographs which the client is very happy with. But we only got these down to a lot of experience and a gentle approach, always putting the child's comfort first. The photographs come second and with enough time you can see how wonderful the results can be.
