I did my first ever, proper newborn shoot today with the most beautiful six day old girl called Scarlett.
Photo shoots for newborns are always best when done before baby is around 12 days old and they need a good old feed beforehand so that they're 'milk drunk'. Mum fed her before I went round, so when I arrived she was fast asleep and although she didn't know it, about to star in her first photo session.
I couldn't have asked for a more perfect baby girl; she slept for an hour and a half, allowing us to try out various little head bands and backgrounds and we never had a peep from her. Mum was close by to make sure that she was OK and dad did a grand job of holding up my supersoft blanket as a background!
The head bands, flowers and teddies all made for superb shots and I think that this is one of my favourites.
