My approach to photographing newborns and older babies is similar to how I photograph families. Which is why we are not limited to photographing your newborn baby within the first 2-3 weeks of life.
All that matters is that we capture real and precious memories of your family during this very special time.
Parents come to me to capture part of that newborn chaos, because, eventually, things will settle and change and our memory will forget most of it (hello newborn brain fog!)
You can wear your PJs, lie in bed with your baby, and let the 3-year-old help himself to cereals before joining in for a cuddle. Or if it’s your first baby and you feel up for it, you might want to capture giving the first (second or third) bath.
We’ll discuss your vision and make a very loose plan and then, I’ll fit right in and capture it as it happens.
Before the session, I was worried about the camera intruding on moments or us feeling pressure to perform for the camera. Instead we forgot you were there as a photographer and we had a lovely family afternoon and you slotted in so well it was as if you had always been part of the family. There was no pressure to perform, behave or pose.
Over the moon with the photos from our family session with Johanna. She is unbelievable with kids and got great shots of our toddler. Got the most beautiful album today that we will cherish for years, as well as a gorgeous big canvas and framed print for the wall. We cannot recommend Johanna enough: talented, professional and obviously loves her job!
Johanna came to photograph our family soon after the birth of our daughter this Summer. Her calm and gentle manner put us all at ease and she was particularly good with our boisterous two year old too. The pictures were wonderful and really captured a special moment in time so soon after the new arrival.
I usually hate having photos taken but I felt entirely at ease with Johanna. She was brilliant with my son, & has managed to capture a really precious time in our lives. I’m normally really critical of how I look in photos but am realising as I type that I haven’t done that at all with these photos. I am absolutely thrilled with the photos, & delighted with the professionalism and quality of the service.
The photography session with Johanna was great. All very simple and natural. We went to a place I like and went for a walk. Except that at the end I had those beautiful pictures!
