We have been bursting to tell you all about a fantastic weekend in July that has changed our lives and photography and inspired our new bump to baby experience. What a perfect place to tell you all about it in our first Newsletter.
For many years we have been huge fans of the amazing photographers Carrie and Brittany from “Baby as Art” in California. Their photos are inspirational and they are the trendsetters of newborn photography. Carrie and Brittany are celebrities in the photography world and it is therefore natural that other celebrities such as Pink ask them to photograph their newborns.
We were so excited when we discovered that they were coming over to England for the first time to run a newborn workshop for a handful of very lucky photographers. We were over the moon to be one of the very few accepted as part of this workshop, and to be learning from the best in the world.
During the amazing 2 days course, we photographed 6 different newborn babies and were shown how to achieve photos that looked natural, soft, tiny and beautiful – everything a newborn is in its first few days of life. We soaked up all of their tips and hints on positioning, lighting, even how to get a baby to sleep quickly! You could almost call us baby whisperers now! We learned that newborn photography isn’t just something you can guess at, it is an art form, and with time and patience you are rewarded with some of the most beautiful, awe inspiring photographs ever.
We are now concentrating more and more on newborn photography as it is something as mothers we both love and can put our hearts and souls into. We are therefore excited to introduce our new Bump to Baby package where we capture the beautiful glow of an expectant mother, and then their tiny newborn in those first important days of their precious lives. This can make a great gift for a friend who is expecting, or why not treat yourself. Have a look at our Bump to Baby page on our website to see what exciting things are included in this package.
Below are a few photos from that amazing weekend, and make sure you have a look at our Session Spotlight in the Newsletter to see some pictures from our most recent pregnancy photo shoot.
