My newborn baby shoot

My newborn baby shoot

I did a newborn shoot for Pey Pey when she was a week old. Melissa from Melissa Mitchell Photography came over and did an amazing job! Seeing your friend in action when it’s your own baby is so special. She really has a gift for handling newborns! She is so patient and creative, I definitely could not do a newborn shoot.

I wanted there to be some sentimental items in the shoot, so we used a suitcase of my grandpa’s, my doll cot he made, a blanket my gran made, a doll’s outfit my gran made, a teddybear I had made from her shirt, and her perfume bottle.

She did so well and mostly slept through it! It really takes such time to put them into positions and to change them each time. It really is such a skill to be a newborn photographer. Not to mention you need to not be afraid of poop haha!

I had her pics made into a photobook and it’s so nice to have it out in the lounge to actually see. We always have pics on our phones but never print them, so it was so nice to actually have it right there in a book!

This suitcase is my grandpa’s that he used since he was 17!

She is the first girl in her dad’s side of the family for over 100 years! So naturally she had to have a crown….
