Poppy came to visit me recently for her newborn photos with her mummy, daddy and very proud big sister. The bed prop seems to be a firm favourite for the sibling shots, it's one of my favourite props too, the resulting photos are so sweet.
Poppy wasn't keen on the sleeping business, she was so unbelievably alert! I think she may have closed her eyes for about 5 minutes in the 3 hours Poppy's family were with me!
Wide awake babies are obviously hard to pose, well, almost impossible unless wrapped! But wide awake portraits are just as beautiful, especially if I wait for that moment they look straight at my camera or when they pull a funny but cute face, or better still, I catch a smile ( okay it's wind but still it looks adorable!)
Here's a few of my favourite images from Poppy's newborn photography session.
I look forward to meeting you soon,
