Jovie’s Newborn Photoshoot in Charlwood, Surrey

Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting Baby Jovie and her family at her newborn photoshoot with took place at Nanny Angela’s house in Charlwood, Surrey. Living on the Sussex / Surrey border means I have quick and easy access to all these lovely places and was at Angela’s gorgeous home inside 15 minutes, super!

Their lounge boasted fantastic natural light so I set up my beanbag and backdrop using the patio doors as my main source of light with my PixaPro Octagon Softbox creating a little fill light.

Jovie is now 7 weeks old and usually the younger they are, the better for newborn photoshoots. At 7 weeks they are fully into staying awake and seeing what’s going on as well as exploring with those arms and legs but that was fine and I focussed on getting detail shots for her Mummy & Daddy to look back on as well as some shots with her laying on her back. As she was awake I didn’t get to do any tummy poses and she would have just face-planted the blanket being inquisitive!

I used the posing beanbag and then did a few shots using my lovely wicker basket on the wooden floor before handing her back to Fiona & Jason. I spent a bit of time with the family capturing some natural pictures of her feeding & having cuddles. Again, the lovely spring day and the natural light meant I could get away with no flash, ensuring a non-intrusive session for Jovie.

It was a great morning, and I love the final pictures, they grow up so fast so to capture these early moments is such a pleasure and a joy and I hope they enjoy the photos for many years to come!

If you’re interested in booking a newborn photoshoot, I can visit you at home and pride myself on working until I have what I need, rather than dashing in and out. I understand that babies need to feed and be changed and so I like to create a calm, relaxed environment where we can stop whenever it’s needed!
