Newborn At Home Photoshoot

Some pictures of a recent at home newborn photoshoot, Dublin.


This newborn photography Dublin session was double the LOVE. A precious newborn baby girl with her older old year old little sister, still very much a babe in arms!


Aren't they all gorgeous?


This newborn session was taken at home, making the most of the soft, diffused window light. With the weather being cold & wintry, it was perfect to make the most of being warm and snug inside...


This is just a sample of the newborn session...as I seriously have been so busy, (I haven't blogged in AGES)... I am busy preparing the photoshoot gallery with other favorites from the session so I will be sure to come back again with more favorites.


This is just a sneak peak!


As I said, this couple already had a one year old little girl as well as the 6 week old baby so their arms were full. I had to make the most of taking baby portraits of one gorgeous baby girl and then turning my attention to the little newborn. I was lucky enough to capture the two of them in some pictures too, looking contented.


One year old sister certainly was a busy bee. She was mobile and was curious about everyone and everything!


As for her tiny precious newborn sister, her tiny newborn limbs were still curled at 6 weeks! For a typical newborn session, within 2 weeks of birth is the perfect time as newborns limbs are still tightly curled as if still in the womb. However some new parents need time to catch up with home life, perhaps straight out of the hospital, and getting used to a totally new routine...so really, the best time to photograph your newborn baby is whenever you are ready!


The master bedroom provided the perfect backdrop - plus and soft - for the family portraits.


This couple dressed in matching dresses and black tights, but it's whatever you feel comfortable in. In the master bedroom and using the bed as a backdrop, it is perfect for wearing relaxed PJ's, nightdress & robes. In fact it makes this natural newborn scene even more authentic and natural looking.


No need for perfectly applied makeup or to worry about skin blemishes or dark circles around the eyes, I can remove them swiftly in Photoshop if need be. With newborn baby's natural rashes on the new skin, I like to leave it as it is. It is very much a sign of being a newborn


The pale colors of the room and the babies outfits made for pretty pastel shades in the editing process...


You can choose between owning digitals, beautiful quality prints, or order a custom made fine art book or matted album.
