London Newborn Session

Oh my goodness, such a doll, such a sweetie.  It was so amazing to photograph this little family, its so great to see such a strong bond between baby and parents.  Some parents are so comfortable with their new additions and it seems like they have been together forever…..its a wonderful thing to see.

This little one looked so comfy and natural when posed.  My photography sessions always start out on the bean bag with a blanket and I do a couple of poses here until I know that the baby is in a nice deep sleep.  This is when I can transfer them onto a prop, whether it be a basket, wooden prop or even a tiny little bed.  Usually the last poses that I do are the ones with parents if they are wanted.

I love the last image of newborn baby with mom, I wish that I had one like this for both of my boys.

Such a lovely baby girl that I had the pleasure to photograph.  So sleepy and calm with beautiful little features.  One of my favorite poses is the first image.  I love the texture of the rolled blanket and how it shows off the small little toes.  I love doing sessions in my new location, its got great light and I am able to heat up the studio space only, which means that parents can cool off while still watching their little ones during their first session.  I’m now located in London, Ontario and I am loving our new location.  As a family we are trying to explore the London area and what it has to offer.  We’ve been skating downtown, snowboarding at Boler Mountain,  a couple London Knights games, lots of park activity, especially the skateboarding park in Sprinkbank Park…..so many fun things for the kids to do.

London Baby Photographer, McCarthy Photography loved having this baby girl in for a session.  Such a gorgeous head of hair and I was in love with her little curl in the front of her head.  I love the natural soft cream look of the images.

Sometimes I love shooting at different angles, that’s what I did for the image below.  I usually take this photo from the front but I loved how her little rolls were bunching up like this.  Getting up a little higher on a step stool allowed me to shoot from the top and look down.  It also shows her little baby toes and that great head of hair.  My goodness, my kids took forever to grow a great head of hair…………at least a full year!!!  I’m always amazed at just how different each of these precious little bundles are.  gorgeous newborn baby girl with lots of hairLondon Baby Photography

 Newborn Sessions

There is nothing cuter than a newborn baby resting comfortably in a sling, then hand it from and branch and well you’ve got super cuteness!!  This is of course a composite image, this means that the baby is always supported by either mom or dads hands and I take multiple shots to edit and put together to achieve this look.  Baby should always be secure and safe, its a top priority.  I think the best part about this business, well aside from the adorable babies, is the creativity and the simple and comfortable props.

I like my sessions to be relaxed and comfortable for both parents and baby.  I am extremely patient and I am never in a rush when in a session.  I want mom and dad to relax and not worry whether or not the baby is sleeping, eventually the little bundle will fall into a nice deep sleep, I’m always sure that I can wait them out :).  I’ve had many sessions where mom and dad are so grateful for the extra time and patience that I put into my sessions.  I am thankful for all of the wonderful parents that trust me with their most special gift, it is something that I am proud of and I hope that comes out in the images.

I love both classic neutral images as well as colourful simple prop images.  As long as baby is comfy and looks peaceful, I am happy.

This squishy newborn boy was such a great little guy and so easy to pose and photograph.  I love the natural feel of the wood and was so excited that he gave us a great big smile, there’s nothing better than a baby smile.

All of my newborn sessions are different, some parents want to be in the images, some want to focus only on the newborn, some sessions are all natural colours and some are filled with colour.  Some use lots of props and some are all blanket posing.  I usually setup each session with a mixture of natural, some colour, some blanket posing and some props.  It’s a good variety and works with my natural workflow.

I always start out with baby on a blanket setup.  These are a good test to see how soundly and deeply the baby is sleeping.  Once baby is in a good deep sleep I usually move onto some prop posing.  Everything of course revolves around keeping baby happy and comfy.  Some babies love to be on their tummies while others love to be wrapped up and posed on their back, they are all so different and they all have their own comfort levels and preferences even at this young newborn age.  The important thing to remember is that they are only this small for such a limited time and newborn photography can only be done once.

The best time for baby’s first session is 10 days and under.  To check out photography pricing please visit the pricing page

I am so excited to be moving to the London, Ontario area!!!  We are all packed up and move next week!  I will start photography sessions in my new location at the middle/end of September.  During my downtime I will be doing catchup on the blog for all of the family, child, baby and newborn photo sessions that I’ve done but haven’t blogged about.  That should keep me busy while I’m setting up my new space 🙂  While we have never lived in the London area, my husband has worked there and has been commuting from Brantford every day and we both went to school in there as well.  I am excited, the kids are excited (but a little nervous) and hubby is excited about the extra time at home instead of on the road.

This little girl celebrated her first birthday with a session and a cake smash at the end.  She was shy at first but warmed up 🙂  Super cutie pie!!!

Newborn, baby and maternity photography is a passion of mine.  There is nothing more sweet or innocent than a brand new baby.  Doing this day and and day out is hard and often sweaty work (parents who have had a  session can relate ) but it is so rewarding and beats any other job out there.   I often think of how lucky I am to be able to do something that I love and something that is a happy occasion.  Parents are often tired when coming here (who isn’t tired with a new baby in the house) but they are sooooo looking forward to it.  I remember getting my babies photos done and I couldn’t wait to see those images, I was exhausted, tired and super busy as a brand new mom but I was so excited to see those images for the first time.  I still love looking at them and remembering how small they were, those tiny little features and those gorgeous little lips 🙂

I love how this family personalized their  photography session…..I’ve had others personalize with guitars, golf bags, custom motorcycle helmets, lacrosse sticks, handmade blankets and various sports helmets.  Anything that is special to you will do.  Colours are another way to spice up your session…if the babys room is done in browns and creams, we can do setups that would complement that, if its shades of pinks, we can do that to.  Just let me know ahead of time so that the blankets, props and backgrounds can be ready for your big photography day.   Newborn pictures at this age is a once in a lifetime thing so I want to make sure yours is special and the photos are cherished forever.

Newborns are such a pleasure to photograph.  There isn’t a better job in the world than spending time with these wonderful new people.  I’ve been getting a fair number of requests for older babies, past the two week stage.  Ultimately newborns should be photographed under the 14 day mark in order to get those curly sleepy poses.  After this point they become more awake and less tolerant to the positions.  I do realize that life happens and sometimes its not possible to even get out of the house in the first two weeks.   The next stage that is great for a photography session is just as baby is sitting up (but before they can crawl away).  Generally between 6-8 months.  They are so wonderfully curious with gorgeous big eyes and bubbly smiles………its a great stage.newborn baby having photo session donebaby boy having photo session done in london, ontarionewborn at first photography appointmentMcCarthy Photography from London, OntarioMcCarthy photography from Woodstock ontario
