Newborn Shoot, County Durham
With Rosie, Ali & Angus
London Newborn Photographer
Shot on Pentax 645N
Kodak Portra 400 & Tri-x 400
Developed & Scanned by Carmencita Film Lab
Since I had not only photographed Rosie for her private Mummy & Bump session but also captured a super sweet, outdoor maternity session with both expecting parents – it seemed only fitting to pop round and capture some pictures of baby Angus when he arrived in to this world. And it’s days like these – and pictures like this – that remind me why I love, love, love being a photographer – being able capture moments that are so incredibly important and special.
As a London Newborn photographer, it is not that often I get to visit my childhood home in the North East, so I am so glad to have such strong connections that when I return I can spend my limited time there surrounded by special people – and also photographing special moments.
Little Angus, 17 days old, tiny and full of the most brilliant and inquisitive, facial expressions! It was a pleasure to finally meet this little man in the flesh! Spending time with these natural parents was such a treat and it was beyond easy to sit with these three, enjoy a coffee and capture these beautiful moments as they happened. We talked about life as grown ups, Harry Potter and what a joy little Angus is! Slow paced home sessions are the best, best way to shoot a new family!
And I just adore shooting newborns on film too.
Black and white film just renders absolutely beautifully and shows off soft touches, shiny eyes, wispy hair and perfect little toes in the most gentle and tender way. On top of that, I am soon to offer one off, darkroom prints from black and white sessions (but more to come on that later!)
Anyway, I’ll leave you with my favourite images from this day and if you’re interested in a newborn session check out what to expect from a shoot here or get in touch! As I am predominately a London Newborn Photographer, I am available throughout the year in the city & beyond, but keep a look out when when I am visiting County Durham if you’re a fabulous Northerner after a shoot!
Finally, huge thanks to Rosie & Ali for letting me be involved in their journey. You guys made the most perfect little human!
