For my most recent baby photo session, I visited this lovely Saudi family at their beautiful home in London Mayfair, for baby Nora’s newborn portraits. Nora surprised her parents by arriving a few weeks earlier than expected. At three weeks old, she was a very calm and happy baby with big eyes and a beautiful, full head of dark hair. She was just as happy to gaze contentedly at the world around her, as she was being held and simply dozing off after a good feed.
Nora’s parents wished for a classic, yet contemporary look for Nora’s baby photos. Mum had brought some of her original baby gowns and blankets from her own first days – beautifully crafted pieces that we incorporated in many of the images. As with all of my home photo sessions, we also used the interiors features to create a unique backdrop to the family portraits. I was absolutely spoiled for choice in this wonderful period building, with its immense windows flooding the rooms with natural light.
We started off with some Dad-and-daughter portraits both indoors and outside, in the garden. Daddy was completely smitten with his little bundle and just could not stop smiling – we like that! I also captured some very tender moments between Nora and her grandmother, as they snuggled up by the window. Finally, we concentrated on a variety of ‘solo’ newborn portraits of Nora, capturing all those gorgeous new baby details – the lips, the eyelashes, the tiny hands and feet – as well as her spontaneous movements and expressions. You can see a small selection of the images we created on the day, just below. More are to follow soon!
