Babies are fantastic to shoot, especially gorgeous little red-headed munchkins. Albert is a lively and happy baby, very curious and always smiling. I particularly enjoyed this shoot as it was on the beach of the Half Moon resort in Montego Bay Jamaica. What more could I ask for, I had beautiful weather, amazing surroundings and a gorgeous little model. It was great fun, and I’d like to thank Martin and Hannah for allowing me to capture these great moments.
As a baby photographer Greenwich London it is important for me to understand how to get the best out of your baby during a shoot. It can be very daunting for your little one to have a stranger making faces and being silly in front of them for the first time. I always think that it is a good idea for me to arrive early and grab a coffee with mum and dad so that baby can get used to seeing me around. Having the shoot, or at least starting it at your home can help as we will be in familiar surroundings. Once baby is comfortable with me then we can move on to another nearby location of your choice.
I would always advise dressing your baby in comfortable clothing that they can move around in easily. Bright colours are always amazing accessories for babies and young children, patterns are great too. Always come armed with their favourite toys and distractions so that we can keep them still for long enough to grab some shots in-between them being inquisitive with their surroundings.
I love capturing these early memories for parents. If you would like to organise a photography session for your baby then please get in contact with me.
