With the birth of the baby so many changes come to parents’ lives. To celebrate their baby daughter’s arrival the young couple Ruta and Sahib have invited me to photograph the new family in their London house. As with an infant photo session, the agenda and timing has to be matched with a baby’s feeding and sleeping pattern. After setting up the lights and props little Mia was ready to be a main subject of the morning baby photo shoot.
I have advised to turn the temperature up in the room so the baby feels swarm and comfortable when posing without the clothes. That made the work slightly harder as you still have to move around a lot in a heat to get the view from different angles, but knowing the child is happy makes it better. Our little model was very curious of the surroundings and given the age, patient
During the photo session, I’ve tried to show plenty of emotions as well as the bond that parents have with their tiny baby, their smiles, pride, excitement, care as well as how the little girl reacted to her parents. Hope you can see it all in their looks, gestures. There was plenty of fun moments during our collaboration, eg. you’ve got to be prepared the baby may take an unexpected bathroom break and do not be scared by it! Also, the faces little Mia pulled were priceless, the parents predict she could be a footballer as being a quite mobile and active, however an actress is quite a probable scenario as well!
Here are the results from the baby photo session, enjoy!
