I love shooting newborns and Tuesday did not disappoint; I had the pleasure of meeting little Bella. She lived up to her name, I'm sure you will agree she is a beautiful baby. She didn't make my life easy though. Her mum, Sarah, assured me that Bella usually sleeps all day and is awake during the night. While this may not be ideal for her parents, a sleeping newborn makes a perfect model for photography. Bella had other ideas though, she spent most of her time in the studio wide awake and taking everything in. She really is a bright little thing and we had to work quickly in the snatched moments where she dozed. I love the images of this little one and I really hope the payback for such a long time in the studio was a good night's sleep. Thank you for asking me to capture this little girl in her first weeks. Hopefully you love the pictures as much as I do.
