On Newborn Lifestyle Sessions
New parents often get in touch asking if I take bookings for newborn sessions, so I thought I would write a short paragraph about it. The answer is yes, I do and since becoming a mum myself, they are extremely special to me.
I love the simple and timeless nature of these sessions. They bring me back to the highest meaning of photography. In these cases, I really try and be invisible, just capturing life happening in front of my eyes in a reportage style.
What is a newborn session if not the record of the million little moments we first share with our babies? The details, the tenderness and – why not – the novelty? The intimacy shared by two people who are getting to know each other and one of them discovering the world.
After all, these pictures are the ones we will treasure the most. They are the one that makes the family emotional, the ones that will make us laugh.
No real preparation goes into a session like this one as all we want is to capture the raw emotions.
