Last month we had the pleasure in photographing baby Frankie and his family in our studio on the outskirts of Wheathampstead near Harpenden.  Our home studio, specifically built with newborn photo shoots in mind has plenty of natural light to capture those peaceful natural images of beautiful new bundles.  We love photographing babies especially when they are as cute and amenable as Frankie!  He was such a star, as was his big sister Mollie who proudly held him for some shots.

Frankie was a week old at the time of the shoot which was a perfect time as he was still nice and sleepy and happy to be gently placed in different settings.

Here are some of my, and the family’s favourite images…

“We recently visited Ian and Emma’s studio for a newborn / family photo shoot. The main focus was on our baby boy (who was just under 2 weeks old at the time), but we also wanted to include our 7 year old daughter in some of the pictures and to have a few taken of the four of us.

From the moment we walked through the door we felt comfortable with Ian and Emma – they were so welcoming, and the studio is fabulous. They had some lovely ideas for the shots, and plenty of backdrops, blankets and props. Our little girl loved it – Emma brushed her hair in between shots and made her feel like a proper model. Both Ian and Emma had endless patience with us all, and the attention to detail was incredible. Tea and biscuits were plentiful and the whole morning was very relaxed. A wonderful experience.

As for the results…… WOW! We have the most amazing photographs – they already have pride of place on our walls and around our home, and have received many compliments from our family and friends!! There was absolutely no pressure when it came to the viewing, but to be honest,  the pictures sold themselves!

We will definitely return for more as the children grow.”
