Newborn photo shoot Harpenden

First time mum Jade brought her beautiful daughter Olivia to the studio recently.  They were such a joy to photograph.  Newborn photo shoots can’t be rushed and we pride ourselves on making parents as comfortable as possible.  You are still getting used to your new role as parents and we are honoured to capture these early magical moments shared between parents and their newborn.

There’s no pressure to find parking, we have a purpose built studio at our home with

The birthday cake is then introduced and we capture what happens

Family and childrens portraiture by Ian Scott Hello and thank you for clicking to find out more.
