Today I want to share with you a very special shoot, which was for my good friends Louise and Christian of their gorgeous newborn little boy Joel. Such a loved and long awaited little boy and a real blend of the two of them. I loved taking these shots in Lou and Christian’s bedroom.
To take the shots, on a previous visit I had looked around the house first to find the lightest room. Once I’d decided on the bedroom I brought along my own white duvet cover as theirs is patterned and a white duvet looks most fresh and natural in photos. I also cleared away all bedroom clutter like toiletries, books, stuff hanging on the walls and made the background as clear as possible.
I also asked Lou to wear neutral coloured clothing as I wanted a Sunday morning kind of vibe. I love these shots and newborn pictures are always so special because they don’t stay this small for long!!
