I wanted to try and venture into Baby photography, as babies are adorable, and don’t need much editing! There’s nothing I hate more than an extremely Photoshopped baby, so I wanted to keep things as simple as possible.
I don’t have my own studio, except for a little set-up in the attic that consists of a large piece of wood balanced on top of two stools, and a white projector screen backdrop. You also need to climb a steep ladder to get up there, and that’s not even close to being safe for a baby. For this reason, I chose to take photos at the baby’s house.
Don’t get me wrong, I love the sort of Newborn photography that has emerged in the last few years, but it’s not something that I’d like to do myself. Placing babies in wooden buckets, and propping them up on objects isn’t for me. I decided to take a natural approach, photographing babies in an environment that they’re used to, with objects that they’ll touch and smell on a daily basis.
I contacted my cousin, and asked if I could take pictures of his 3 week old daughter, Aimee. Below is my cousin’s wife’s favourite, and my favourite photo from the shoot. They seemed to be very pleased with the result, and I really enjoyed my time working with them, and little Aimee. I hope to go back soon when Aimee is able to sit up and move around a bit more.
