Today I had the great honour of working with a very precious little lady when baby Amelia come to see me for her newborn photos.
Normally I always say that babies are best photographed within the first 2 weeks after birth as this is when they’re most sleepy and likely to be happy to be posed. However when it comes to premature babies the rules change and you do get slightly longer for newborn baby photos. Little Amelia is 2mths old now but she was born at just under 30wks gestation! Not only was that scary enough for her poor Mummy and Daddy but she also needed to have heart surgery very early on too.
Luckily Amelia is a little fighter and she was finally allowed home just over 2wks ago. She is doing great and is now almost 5lbs in weight. She is also developing a great little personality and I think she’s going to be a stubborn little lady as she certainly fought me over where her hands were going to be placed a few times today. She also spent much of the session growling at me!
As you can see from her sneak peek she is tiny but perfect, and absolutely gorgeous!
NB – please note that for safety purposes Amelia’s Mum was right next to her the whole time with her hand on Amelia in between shutter clicks. This pose and prop should not be attempted without appropriate training or experience.
