It was an absolute pleasure to be asked to document little Noah's first few days so that mum and dad can have some lovely newborn baby pictures to treasure for a life time, little noah was a little star for his portrait session, although he was very awake to begin with when mum and dad first arrived, but we went along with that and persevered with the shoot until he settled as is always the case as sessions are always led by baby, and when he did he was fantastic and we got some lovely posed images.
It was a pleasure to document this couples son who are due to head back to Australia very soon, where I'm sure he will receive a lot of attention from his family back home and be very spoilt and loved.
I love my job as a newborn baby photographer here in Plymouth as I get to meet many new families and watch those families grow, I also get to meet people from all different walks of life, and there is one thing that I can relate to them with, no matter where they are from, what they do as a profession, they all have a child and being a dad to 5 boys myself I feel I can really connect with mums and dads that come to me for newborn shoots.
I often get asked for tips and advice on how best to settle their newborn baby, especially after they have seen me settle their baby who never sleeps or settles, or has been up for nights on end, and of course I have a few methods I try but I think its my calmness and patience that really shines here and my knowledge of knowing how to handle a baby and most importantly knowing how to do it so baby is comfortable and safe as I have invested into newborn baby photography training. Its always nice to hear these comments and I guess its reassuring to the parents knowing their precious baby is in safe, competent hands, its very warming to hear yourself referred to as "the baby whisperer", but I know there are many more people out there more worthy of the title than me and especially those that have been there to help me develop in my professional carer.
