Leeds Newborn Photographer | Ilkley Newborn Shoot | Lifestyle Photography

At last free to blog this lovely little home shoot (which I kept on lock-down until after Fathers Day, as the images were a surprise gift) :-)

Big bro Hugo and little baby Olivier, with their lovely mummy Lottie, at their family home in Ilkley.

I absolutely love newborn shoots in the family home. Laid-back, tea-fuelled shoots that work around mother and baby.

I’ve blogged recently about newborn shoots and the ‘right’ time to book in - and the reality is, there isn’t one, it’s totally down to personal preference. There is no baby age limit on baby photography.

Some bookings see me with newborns just days old, to capture them starting out in the world. Sometimes parents choose to book me around the 3-month mark, once they have had time to settle in at home and the baby has more head control (and smiles that aren’t just wind)! There is also the option to wait until the 6-month point when the little ones are sitting and gaining some mobility.

The choice is yours!

My newborn photography and baby photography is ‘lifestyle based’ which is essentially a really natural and unobtrusive approach to newborn photography and baby photography, showing the baby in his/her home environment - often with parents and siblings.

So here you have it! Lottie, Hugo and Olivier….

….and as an aside….Lottie not only makes cute kids (!) but is also a fantastic hair stylist - if you’re a bride-to-be and yet to book your hairdresser, I’d urge you to get in touch!! https://www.lottiehaigh.com/
