Sarah Black Photography

Never experienced a family photo session before? Want to know what it might be like? It's seriously just a an hour or two of simple family time. Take a look...

What is newborn photography like?

I will capture your family just as you see them, at their best and in their perfect imperfection and all the magical in-betweens, the things that make you smile as you kiss their sleepy faces at the end of the day.

I chase light and emotion, and let the images fall out of that as they will. If you would really love a whole series of posed photos where everyone is looking at the camera and smiling, that's great, but I might not be the right photographer for you (although I can always try to include one of those in your session). Please take a look at the sessions on my blog, they will give you an idea of what to expect from a family, newborn or baby photography session, except that those people are not you, and so can't possibly show you what your family photos might look like. All my sessions look quite different from each other, because I'm not cookie cutter and neither are you.

Newborn sessions are peaceful, loving and natural, held in your home where you can relax and be more yourselves. 

I really don't think that there is any one 'right age' for photo sessions; the perfect time to capture your newborn is always 'right now'. I sometimes hear parents talking about wanting photographs in the first two weeks, or waiting for babies to smile at the magical 6 week mark, but none of this is truly important. In fact, I suspect that when we are all old and grey, it will be the quirks of childhood, not the supposedly perfect moments, which will be the ones we remember.

And if you are thinking you might wait until you get back in shape, I promise you, your new baby thinks you are pretty spectacular just the way you are.
