HERTFORDSHIRE NEWBORN & FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER
WAS YOUR BABY BORN BEFORE, DURING OR AFTER LOCKDOWN?
If so, as a Hertfordshire newborn and family photographer, can I just say “Well done”! That was a really tough and worrying time for you all. A lot of my Clients with lockdown babies feel like they missed out on some of the joy of being expectant parents due to the restrictions imposed on them. Yes of course, they understand the reason why the restrictions were necessary but they feel a little sad they couldn’t go to baby exhibitions or shopping for cots, prams, clothes and other baby essentials. No in person antenatal, birthing or pregnancy yoga classes and reduced healthcare appointments
Then there was the disappointment because they couldn’t have the newborn photo shoots they had booked and were so looking forward to. I produced a How to Photography your Newborn safely at home guide. However it’s not quite the same as attending a professional photo shoot. Such a shame.
A SOCIAL DISTANCE PHOTOGRAPHER WAS BORN!
I came up with a plan that would enable me to carry out Newborn Photo Shoots as soon as I was permitted to reopen on 15th June. It was quite obvious that the usual style of posed Newborn Photo shoot just wasn’t going to be possible for some time. With us all in a hot stuffy studio (it needs to be warm to get baby to sleep for posing) for 3 to 4 hours and me handling the baby to wrap, soothe and pose. Instead I have created a “Lifestyle” studio set in the style of a stylish simple yet elegant bedroom where your family can cuddle and snuggle while I photography you from a distance. It’s a completely handsfree photo shoot and perfectly possible to maintain social distance with my longer lenses.
I was aiming for a style reminiscent of those luxury homes you see in postal shopping catalogues, you know the ones I mean. White images with a splash of soft pastel or neutral colour. I’m so pleased with how it has turned out and the images produce a wonderful gallery to choose from. I have had wonderful feedback from all of my Clients so far.
I have also purchased a beautiful range of Newborn & Baby outfits which you are welcome to use during your photo shoot.
LOCKDOWN NEW PARENTS & PARENTS TO BE!
If you had a baby before, during or after lockdown (or you are currently expecting) why don’t you get in touch for a virtual tour of my peaceful, rural village location photography studio. We can discuss how I can create a fun and relaxed socially distanced maternity, newborn, baby or family photo shoot for you. The studio is fully cleaned with antibac, vacuumed and mopped before and after each Client. I use washable chair coverings if there isn’t a 72 hour gap between shoots and I use my longer lenses to enable me to maintain social distance.
Please don’t worry about small children not understanding they need to keep their distance. It’s difficult for them and I don’t want you to feel you need to keep reminding them. I will wear gloves and a mask/visor for the entire shoot and I will try my best to keep you all safe by keeping my distance from them. If they do run towards me it’s usually only for a matter of seconds anyway before they are off again! Being a newborn & family photographer I am very used to working around small children…

WOULD YOU PREFER A STUDIO BACKDROP PHOTO SHOOT?
I can offer my usual studio backdrop photo shoots for Maternity, Baby, Cake Smash, Family and Head Shot Photo Shoots. It’s very easy to maintain social distance during these photo shoots. Please check out my Baby, Family and Cake Smash Pinterest Boards using the link below.
OR PERHAPS A FAMILY LOCATION PHOTOGRAPHY SHOOT?
Outdoor photography shoots are fine to do now. We can easily keep social distance and it’s great for the children to relax and let off a bit of steam. I will gently direct you into natural poses and I will also capture some candid images of you playing together. Please check out my Family Location Photo Shoot Pinterest Board using the link below.
With only one shoot a day and a maximum of 3 shoots a week space is limited.
Please get in touch today for a chat about how I can create a gallery of images of your family you will treasure forever.
I look forward to hearing from you.
