Hampshire baby photography – Jessica’s portrait session

This weekend it was back in the studio for me with my first session since having my little bubba, so it was lovely that the first session was for a previous client.

Little Jessica is now 10mths old – I last saw her for her newborn baby photos back in August, you can see her sneak peek from that session here.  She is now a beautiful little lady with a lovely smiley disposition.  However the session wasn’t without it’s challenges as she is already walking!  Jessica also brought her big brother William with her again so it was lovely to get some photos of the two of them together again.

Jessica’s sneak peek is a pose that I love capturing and which is completely timeless.

A new member of the team

As you may have noticed I have been a tad quiet on here recently and that was because I was busy growing the newest member of the team at Libby Edwards Photography – Oscar who was born on 17 May weighing 7lb 15oz.

Many people have said to me things like ‘you’ll be a great Mum‘ and ‘you’ll have no trouble settling your baby‘ when they have seen me work with their babies.  Well while many of the skills I have learned as a newborn baby photographer are transferable to parenthood it’s still a whole new ball game when it’s your own baby.  I waited a long time to have my little bundle of joy and he has not disappointed – I am totally smitten!

Of course finding time to take photos of my own baby has been a challenge but I was glad that I managed to get in the studio to take Oscar’s newborn photos as he’s changed so much already. I have also been very lucky that some close photographer friends have also helped out with photos for me and I’ll share those in due course.

For now I leave you with a few sneak peeks from Oscar’s first portrait session and I hope you’ll agree I made a gooden!

Hampshire baby photography – what is a cake smash?

Today I was interviewed live on BBC Radio Solent to talk about cake smash photoshoots, which is fast becoming the ‘in’ way to celebrate and mark your little one’s first birthday.

Portsmouth baby photography – Max & Jacob’s sitter session

Before I hung up the camera for my maternity leave I had time for one last shoot and what a shoot to pick!  I was thrilled to welcome back Charlie and his twin brothers Max and Jacob who are now 7mths.

I last saw Max and Jacob for their newborn baby photos which you can see here.  I can’t believe how quickly the time has gone and now they’re sitting up!  It was also lovely to see their developing personalities which are shaping up to be as different as they are.  Max is a very serious little chap who hates being laid down, while Jacob is a very happy bouncy little boy.

We had great fun getting all three boys together in the studio for some photos and luckily we had no ‘accidents’ during the rudey nudey photos.  Mind you getting both twins to look at the camera at the same time was near impossible but I think you’ll agree they did really well for their teddy bear’s line-up photo!

Portsmouth newborn baby photography – Eleanor’s portrait session

Yesterday I had the pleasure of welcoming back a previous client and meeting the newest member of their family – little 12 day old Eleanor.

I last saw the family for big brother James’ Baby photoshoot which you can see here, and it seems only yesterday I was taking his newborn photos which you can see here.  So you can imagine my delight when James and Eleanor’s Mummy got in touch to let me know about baby number two and to book me again for newborn photos. Luckily with Eleanor being a girl it was easy to make her photos very different from her brother’s – just as well as the family resemblance is strong!

Eleanor was a little bit of a pickle during her photoshoot and really just wanted to feed the whole time.  However in between I was able to capture some beautiful images for the family to treasure forever, including the sneak peek below.  As James is still little this image was created using a composite for Eleanor’s safety.  I took one photo of James on his own with the empty bowl and then another of Eleanor on her own in the bowl.  With a little magic from Photoshop they appear together in the final image as you can see below.
