Newborn Baby Lifestyle sessions with Samantha Black

What is a Newborn Lifestyle Photography session?

These sessions are ideal for families who would like to photograph their newborn within the first few weeks (ideally within 8 weeks) in a more relaxed way. With traditional newborn sessions, the focus is mostly on baby with a large degree of posing and some use of props.  With a lifestyle session we will can still do some posing but not as much and really we try to keep the theme as natural as possible. We minimise the use of props and stick to wrap, blankets and simple fabrics and textures.  We can use items in your home to bring a personal feel to the session. For example baby’s blanket, a cot or crib, a changing table can all give your session a slightly different look and feel. There is a whole spectrum within Newborn Lifestyle Photography, and I can work anywhere within that spectrum, we can go super natural or we can incorporate a some posing.

How will I know what style of photography suits my family?

Together we will discuss well before your session and I will work out from you by asking you lots of questions, what I think you like and what would suit you so that on the day we all know what we are doing. It’s really that simple.

What should we wear?

In terms of Mum and Dad, I look for simplicity and comfort in their clothing and appearance, and we shoot is a more relaxed manner whilst still incorporation some degree of posing for Mum and Dad, it still has a really natural look and feel.

White, neutral and earthy tones work really well for clothing and bedding too.

What should baby wear?

Not much at all.  I will work mostly in a nappy, blankets, wraps and bodysuits/sleepsuits.

It’s also good to have maybe one or two sleepsuits and short sleeved bodysuits/vests that you like too.

Also pick out baby blankets you love, I’ll want to see all of these when I arrive.

Anything else?

Yes, just relax as best as you can on the day.

I will do my best to photograph you all in the best way I can.  I cannot tell you how important it is to try  to be ‘in’ these images with your baby, no matter how you feel.  This is your chance to get images of you and your baby and to get them the way you like them.

One day your child will look back and totally cherish these images, more than you know.  They will be the ones that they will always want to see and have. They will be the images that are their forever images

 So let’s focus on making you comfortable and getting it right. It’s a very special time for you all, let’s make it an enjoyable one too!

Forever portraits: Mummy and baby

Mum and baby Photography London – Forever portraits I call them.

Forever portraits for me are those really special moments between a mother and her newborn, baby or child.

If I’m honest, my upmost favourite portraits I have of my second child when he was a newborn was one that I took of him and my husband (first image below). And 4 and a half years ago when my son was born I wasn’t a professional newborn photographer. Even so, it was the portrait that I knew I had to have.

And I don’t regret it for one second.

Some of the portraits you see below are quite posed, other are less so.  But whichever portrait style I am photographing, I can guarantee there will be that one moment when I can sense that feeling. Sometimes it’s awe I see, or laughter in their eyes, maybe is just pure love, or sheer happiness, but there is always something… and I will always notice it.  Because I love it.

It’s probably why I love my job so much. I get to witness moments like that. Priceless.

Even in between the awkward moments of baby accidents (which can sometimes happen during a Mummy shot!), it’s there.

So, if you are not sure whether a portrait like this is for you, hopefully after reading this, you will know one way or the other.

2014 – Loved every moment. Here are just a few highlights….

Well…2014 was such an exciting year for me. I’ve met so many interesting people on my journey.

Here is a round up of some of my favourite shots, although to be honest I just couldn’t fit them all in so I’m sorry if I missed anyone out! There are also some images that I am not able to share with you all for privacy reasons. Thank you to all my fans, friends and family for all of your support. I’m blessed to have people who support me in so many ways. Here’s to 2015, I’m looking forward to more new and creative projects and doing even more of what I love…. xx

Baby Harrison

Little Baby Harrison.

It’s amazing how at just 7 days new Harrison was displaying so much personality,  it was so very sweet to see such an adorable little baby oozing such character. He actually rendered me speechless at one point, and that’s pretty difficult for me. I loved every single minute of getting to know this little guy and I think he rocked his mummy shots.

I didn’t get to meet his older sister but I can imagine, based on what mum said that she is an truly lovely little girl who now has an amazing little brother.

Welcome to the world little man!

Perfect little Baby P

This little angel is simply breathtaking. I loved every moment of photographing her and really could have photographed her all day.

Baby L

I spent a lovely afternoon with this beautiful  family of 3. Mum and Dad wanted some photos that would capture Baby L simply and naturally, which worked perfectly.  Baby L was just approaching his 2nd birthday when these photos were taken. Bundles of energy and character oozed from this little guy, and without hesitation – just the way I like it.  I absolutely loved this little guy! Such a little adventurer ❤

Baby A

It was my pleasure to photograph this beautiful family of three. The hardest thing about what I do is being able to capture beautiful images without being distracted by how cute or funny a baby (or child is).  Baby A was definitely one of those, in between every snap I found myself saying, ahhh, oooh and ahhh again. He also seemed to love the camera – such a funny little guy!

A for Adorable

Adorable little Baby A isn’t a fan of hats but with some gentle encouragement from Mum and Dad, we took some beautiful shots of him – yes, with a hat.  Thank you Mum and Dad for letting me shoot your adorable little man.
