Meet Callum, Morgan and baby Everleigh. They're a beautiful young family, based near Godalming in Surrey. We had the pleasure of doing their first-ever professional family photos. Eveleigh is a living Miracle as she was born at 29 weeks weighing a teeny 743g making her severely premature. The love Everligh's parents have for her is so powerful. She is a fortunate girl to have them to guide her through life. Our clients wanted to shoot on location at their family home, as it holds more meaningful memories for Everleigh. It's her first-ever home where she will spend many years, growing and changing into a beautiful, strong lady. We, as photographers, much prefer shooting on location as it doesn't only help tell our clients stories, but it adds depth to the stories. We try to use natural lighting, as we personally prefer this. However, it also makes the scene more natural, and nothing you see in the image is artificial. It hasn't been tampered with or changed they are real smiles, cries and laughter. We use items in your home to create a makeshift studio from objects like blankets and pieces of furniture. We'll even use cuddly toys and photos in photo frames. It's entirely down up you. When stepping into our client's homes, our creative mind begins scouting the rooms looking for the most amount of natural light and objects which can be used. We suggest that 2 -4 hours with our clients, as having a newborn can be challenging and demanding. We often have to wait for the baby to be changed, fed, and they need lots of cuddling during the shoot. A loved and cared for baby, is a happy baby, which makes newborn photography easier. We don't want to feel like we are rushing and most of all, we don’t want our clients to feel stressed or under pressure. Having a newborn is a one-time thing (unless you have more kids), but it’s a precious moment in time that should be enjoyed. If you're lucky enough to be expecting a baby, we want to say a HUGE congratulations firstly! Secondly, we'd love to be the photographers that you choose to do your family photos or newborn photography. Send us a message by clicking here.
