Natural newborn photography in Horsham
So, a couple of weeks back I had the absolute pleasure of spending the morning with this adorable little man and his gorgeous mummy at their home in Horsham for one of my natural, lifestyle newborn shoots. This chilled out little chap, at just 4 weeks old, was an absolute star and behaved impeccably for me, allowing me to capture some beautiful, natural, documentary style photos of him and his mummy in the comfort of their own home.
For me, this is what newborn photography should be about, nothing overly posed just spending a morning at home doing what you would normally do, just with the unusual factor of me being there snapping away at the same time. I only ever use natural window light for my newborn session as I feel this is a lot softer than flash light and less distracting for little ones, plus it means far less for me to carry along!
Like any other newborn and at home family shoots I love to capture a bit of the surroundings too, with a few shots in and around the nursery, as well as some wider shots. Some people would panic at this thought and think they have to have a perfectly clean and tidy show home, but this is not at all what it's about, in fact, I prefer quite the opposite as it just makes it more real and creates honest pictures of this time for you to look back on in years to come.
Here are a few of my favourites from the morning..
