Newborn Photography in Glasgow
your paterhood journey documented
Each story has a beginning and my story as a photographer offering lifestyle newborn photography has stared with this session. So, It won’t surprise you that this newborn photoshoot has a special meaning for me. Let’s move back to Januraty 2020 just before era of Covid. Yes I know I couldn’t choose a better time for opening a business 😉
Have you ever come across a situation where after your first conversation with someone you’ve just encountered for the first time you felt an instant connection. As if you’ve known this person in another lifetime. And there’s something that just clicks when you’re talking with them?
I had this unusual yet warm and comfortable easy feeling after the first email I received from Ilango.
Little Aurora - in home lifestyle newborn photography In Glasgow
She contacted me to request a lifestyle newborn photography for her daughter. I couldn’t believe how many things I had in common with Ilango. Our daughters were born on the same day but different years. We also had a very similar labour experience. We clicked straight away. Aurora, Illango’s little daughter, was born prematurely. She had to stay in the hospital a little longer than usual. When baby and mum returned home, little Aurora was 3 weeks old. I visited them at the end of January 2020 on the day of the initial due date. My little model was exactly 4 weeks old. However, she decided to make her appearance in the world a bit early, she was still very tiny. But not as sleepy as is often the case with many newborns.
She didn’t sleep for most of the session, she did not cry once, which was a blessing. Aurira was very content to watch the world go by with curious eyes.
why to book lifestyle newborn photography in Glasgow?
As a photographer who’s main focus is babies and kids photography, I couldn’t have asked for a better scenario and ideal subject for a session.
Illango booked at home newborn photoshoot for several reasons. Firstly, she noticed how much Aurora had changed in the time they spent together at the hospital. She really wanted to capture the sweetness of her newborn baby girl. Skin beginning to shed from Aurora’s hands and feet. Little fluff on Aurora ears. However, they were still not ready for the session.
Secondly, Miguel, Illango’s husband is not a fan of studio photography. He prefers a more natural setting for photographs to be taken. That’s why they preferred to meet in the comfort of their family home.
Than, they wish to avoid the hustle and bustle of travelling with a newborn and the unsettling stress it could cause little Aurora. At home lifestyle newborn photography Glasgow was the ideal surrounding allowing them to get natural and warm family bonding shots, ticking all the boxes.
When you photos are redy -next step of the lifestyle newborn photography
A few weeks after our photo session I met Illango, Miguel and Aurora again for the viewing. (Also worth noting that as soon as the relevant restrictions are lifted and I am permitted, I will return to this form of showing photographs to families). There is nothing more valuable to me than the sight of a parent expressing emotion watching a film with their photographs. It brings me joy and pleasure to be a part of the experience. It gives me such satisfaction to know I’ve achieved my goal. To give a family a prescious memory to cherish for many years.
