Newborn Baby Photos, North Berwick
Just a few weeks ago I had been taking photos of this Momma for her maternity session. Now I was invited back to North Berwick following the birth of her tiny weeny little bundle of joy - a little girl to add to the family - in order to take newborn baby photos.
I like to start photo sessions by taking detail shots. Anyone who has read the other baby photo blogs on my website will know that I like feet photos. Babys’ feet are so cute and all too soon they grow a lot bigger.
This newborn had just started a phenomenal feed-fest. The times when a newborn is hungry all the time are usually correlated with growth spurts. This little lady fed consistently for a whole week and pushed herself into the 75th percentile. So going with the flow during the session was the order of the day, such as this photo of her being burped.
I took lots of breastfeeding photos but I always ask my mothers if they are okay with me sharing these photos online or not. The mother pictured here preferred her privacy, which I fully respect.
There are many breastfeeding-related shots that can be taken during a session which don’t show the feeding itself. Below are shown the wee yin’s tiny ear next to her Mummy's hand and her tiny feet tucked into the chair.
There was lots of snuggling during this session and lots of trying to get wee one to sleep. But it was not to be, she was very focused on feeling hungry.
It's so obvious to see the love between Mother and babe.
What goes in must come out... So naturally another one of a newborn’s skills, in addition to feeding, is pooping. That and sleeping. So I was able to get a few discreet shots of the wee one during a nappy change.
The wee one was starting to show signs that she might be feeling a bit chilly, so she was warmly wrapped up for some portraits.
Another shot of a teeny tiny foot escaping the blanket.
During photos with her big sister, this new little sister was finally starting to feel sleepy.
The shots below are of the whole family with their newest addition.
Three lovely ladies and two generations snuggled together for a photo to celebrate the happy arrival.
I think you’ll agree that this young lady is looking very proud of becoming a big sister.
Some final snuggles as baby finally drifts off to sleep.
