Two of our best friends, Tim and Naomi had a beautiful boy, Benjamin a little while ago. We were so excited with them to share in this new addition to their family. And even more excited when they asked us to be godparents.
I’ve been interested in doing newborn photography for a while, so when Benjamin came along, I thought it would be a great idea to use him as my tiny guinea pig. And luckily he had obliging parents. 🙂 A few lessons were learned, one of them being that it is best to try to have your newborn photographed under 10 days new. They are most sleepy during this time and if they should get baby acne, this will usually not have developed yet.
Benjamin was a big baby at birth (9 lbs), so he was already quite big at 3 weeks. But we still had a great time and the photos made for special keepsakes for Tim, Naomi and their families.
I should also add that probably about 90% of all my work so far has been as a direct result of photographing Benjamin. So I will forever be indebted and grateful to Tim and Naomi for allowing me to ‘practise’ on their precious son.
Here are some of my favourites:
