Hannah’s Newborn Family Photoshoot

newborn family photoshoot Edinburgh

We had a fantastic newborn family shoot with Hannah all brand new at 7 days NEW with her dad, mum and big sister. The whole shoot was based around images together as a family, sibling images and then we went on to capture Hannah in some sweet newborn poses. Hannah was cluster feeding during this shoot so I used a dummy to help soothe her here and there to bebale to complete a great set of beautiful images.

Cluster Feeding is neccesary for breastfed newborn babies to increase the flow of milk. They don’t sleep very deeply and I find are incredibly hard to settle. Deep sleep is the last thing on their minds. Together with keeping the studio at a warm temperature of 27 degrees and using knitted rompers, I managed to capture some adorable images of Hannah.

Family and sibling images are always encouraged and included in the newborn photoshoot. A newborn photoshoot is a celebration of your new baby that has joined the family. This is a very exciting time for everybody.

Sibling images are better to be taken when you new baby is very young as they tend to sleep a lot deeper and do not move around too much. The crying and moving around and unsettle an older sibling as they don’t know how to manage this. An unsettled newborn baby having sibling photos captured is also a safety risk for your newborn. Once 10 days to two weeks has past, the novelty of a new baby sister or brother would start wearing off and there is usually less patience from an older sibling. Therefore, if you are hoping for beautiful sibling images to be captured, it is very helpful to book your new baby in earlier than later after birth.

Edinburgh can be a lottery with the weather. However, if it is a non-windy, dry day we may consider a few images in my vegetable garden which is protected and a beautiful place to photograph. I just love the outdoor, daylight images.
