We have always wanted to have a video made to show our clients what our Newborn Photography Experience is all about.  Last month we found the perfect videographer.  Matt from Unique Wedding Productions is actually a wedding videographer but we loved his style and luckily he agreed to shoot the video for us.  Thank you so much Matt, we can’t wait to see the finished film!

Obviously we needed some gorgeous little bundles to be our newborn models for the day!  We would like to say thank you so much to both families who came in and let us photograph their newborn babies.  It was wonderful to have a boy and a girl featured in the video and we hope you like the photos we took during the shoot.

Here are a few pictures from the day and some information about our newborn photo shoots.  We look forward to showing you all the video in our next newsletter.

When do I need to book my newborn photography shoot?

Your babies due date is unpredictable so you can book as early as after your 20 weeks scan. We normally book newborn sessions 3 months in advance for 8-10 days after your due date. We will then make sure we have space allocated for when you baby arrives.

This big brother has such beautiful eyes.

How old do they need to be?

Newborn portraits are ideally captured within the first 4-10 days of life, when your baby sleeps for long periods of time and curls up naturally as if they are still in the womb. After 4 weeks we would class it as a baby photography session not a newborn session.

Thank you so much for letting us photograph your beautiful family.

Last week we had a family of four handsome boys in the studio along with their lovely parents.  The three older boys were very excited to show us their new baby brother and all did amazingly well standing still for their photographs.  It was great to see each of their little personalities and how four siblings could look so different yet similar.  The session was full of energy and we can’t wait to show them the rest of the photos.

Baby Sebastian was an absolute dream when he came in for his newborn photoshoot last week.  His mum was totally gorgeous too.  We wish we looked this good a week after having a baby!

Bringing a special soft toy into the photoshoot is a great idea as later on it will show how much your little one has grown.  One day that teddy will look tiny in his grown up hands!

We have just finished a shoot with a beautiful family and we had to put a picture of the three siblings on our blog as they are just gorgeous.  Big brother and sister are obviously very excited about the arrival of their new baby sister who was under a week old.

newborn photography July 6In our last newsletter we wrote a blog section on what to wear for your photoshoot and this family had exactly the right idea.  The mix of pinks and greys was lovely and helped to make some stunning timeless photos that they will hopefully treasure forever.

I want to start this blog by simply showing you a before and after photograph of a family who had a photoshoot with an Australian photographer (Sue Bryce) that we really admire. The first shot shows a family as their everyday selves and in the second they have been advised on colours for the photoshoot and had a little help from hair and makeup.

What to wear to your photoshoot

These pictures show how choosing the right clothes and taking some time with your hair and make-up can totally transform your pictures.  You don’t have to have a make-up artist or hair stylist, but if you would like one, you can book Nadine, our make-up artist. Having a family photoshoot is an investment so it is worth putting the effort in!

All photographers have very unique styles and you choose a particular photographer to capture your family because you like their style.

Here at Mango studios we take timeless, organic pictures.  Clients always ask us what they should wear or bring with them.  So we thought it would be a good idea to put together a blog that all of our clients can refer to prior to their shoots.

The tones we use in our photographs are very natural and soft.  To achieve this look we give our clients the following advice:

Choose a neutral colour palette

Soft muted colours work beautifully together and won’t detract from your faces.  Have a look at this Farrow and Ball (our favourite!) colour chart to give you some inspiration.  Remember to bring three outfits per person to the shoot so we can have a look and choose what will work best together.

Farrow and Ball Colour Palette

Think Timeless

Keep it simple, styles change and logos can look dated in a few years.  Think timeless!

Layers and textures

are beautiful and create interest in photos.  Think chunky knitted items, straw hats, lace, and soft ruffles (Not all at once!)  Textures really make black and white photos pop.  Make sure your children are comfortable.  They will be more relaxed if they are in something that is easy to move in!

Surrey photography what to wear

Coordinate don’t match

You don’t have to match your colours exactly.  Choose a colour palette and select some colours that go together but will keep the pictures interesting.  Block colours work well, and although logo’s aren’t good, patterns are a nice way of creating dimentions in the pictures.  If you have a particular dress or outfit that is patterned, use this as your central point and dress the rest of your family in simple block colours from that main outfit.Cousins-6

 

Outdoor Shoots

The above are recommendations for our studio shoots.  If you have booked an outdoor shoot then brighter colours work well with blue skies and wild flowers!  Coordinated your colours but remember they don’t have to match exactly.

 Shoes matter!

Please don’t just wear your old shoes.  The choice of shoe can make or break an outfit!  Think fun!  Wellies with dresses are fun and quirky.  Colourful ballet flats or polker dot wedges.  Maybe your child’s shoes could coordinate with something you are wearing to bring the whole look together.

We hope this helps but do call us if you have any questions prior to your shoot.  If you would like to book our make-up artist, Nadine, (she also does hair!) just let us know and we can organise this for you.  You can read about Nadine here.
