Baby at Home. Snug with mum, dad, little brother & kitty
Natural new baby at home Dublin. Here a home that's a stone's throw from Herbert Park Dublin
Often newborn at home sessions Dublin are done within the first two weeks of birth - when baby is still all curled up. However, there is no pressure to do your baby's first pictures within a particular time frame.
Whenever you are ready is the right time & every family adapts to a new baby differently!
What matters is the bond between you, your baby & other family members. That loving connection doesn't come with an age attached! Every age - day, week, month, year - is precious.
Here, baby girl is about 8 weeks or so and can already smile! She's strong enough to kick out her arms and legs and roll around.
When I arrived there was little brother, full of life. He is a gorgeous toddler with lots of curls. A tabby cat snoozing on the sofa. Mum, dad, and new baby girl. Also grandma was there to give a helping hand!
In this family photo shoot with baby girl, I made the most of big brother interacting with the tabby cat. I love the connection that children and adults have with their pets. Cats & dogs really bring out a spark of connection
My baby & newborn at home photography sessions are a slice of life.
That's the perfect & imperfect moments captured. Life with a baby & newborn is naturally hectic! There is barely time to drag a comb through your hair, to take a shower. To get dressed. That's why my family sessions relish the unscripted moments!
Although I do send tips to prepare for my baby & newborn at home sessions Dublin, they are very basic.
I know you don't have time. More to the point, I don't expect you to
I simply ask that you throw open windows & blinds and LET IN THE LIGHT!
As a pure natural light photographer, I arrive 10-15 mins before your baby family photography session to scope out the best light in your home. I may also ask that you simply make up the master bed and clear it of clutter on either side. That's just to create a peaceful spot for family portraits.
Baby clutter - clothes & blankets & toys - are all fine. Just unsightly baby monitors & plugs & cables can be cleared away if possible!
I am humbled to enter your home with my camera and take the first pictures of you & your baby. It's a privilege to see the world through your eyes in this brand new stage of life. I know it's a tight bubble where you exist with your baby and other children. Away from the world for a bit
I make room for traditional family portraits of you all sitting together. I make them as authentic as possible, seeking out genuine moments of connection. Gesture & expression that you recognize. My passion is to document your life as you feed, bathe & play with baby
It takes about 1-2 weeks to view the best moments from your session in a professional online gallery with personalized cover picture. You can mark your favorites there. I have packages of 30 digital images. Or you can go for a full gallery of about 60 pictures. The full gallery is good if you are considering making a family album with about 15 spreads.
My album designers do a great job designing your unique album pages
I have found a range of luxury, handcrafted print products that include mounted print boxes, matted albums & fine art books. Digital images can be expertly printed at Dublin professional, gallery quality printers. I provide all the details. The mat prints are really popular with my families.
