Phew! It’s been another hectic month here in the Baby Boutique, with lots of little faces passing through my Manchester studio. Here’s a sneak peek at some of my favourite newborn photography sessions and family collections from the past few weeks…
Newborn Photography Goodness 💖
Okay, confession time: this first collection isn’t technically from June – but May 31 is pretty close and with so many warm, wonderful set-ups, I just HAD to include this gorgeous family in this month’s blog. How great do they look?
Newborn photography is all about capturing those special, fleeting moments in your child’s life and with a Baby’s First Year collection, you can see your little one grow and develop in real-time. In early June, I was lucky enough to complete a Baby First Year collection for little Ruby. Shot in three six month intervals, we specifically used the same flower-embellished prop to show just how much she has changed in such a short space of time. We regularly carry over the same props in newborn photography sessions like this but I think this collection has to be one of my favourites!
Messy Cake Smash Sessions 🎂
Cake smash sessions are always popular with families and I have to admit, I love them too! Just look how much fun Billie-Mae is having getting stuck into her very first birthday cake. She looks positively made up and I don’t blame her. After all, if you can’t make a mess on your birthday, when can you?
The Baby Boutique doesn’t only cater for newborn photography – in fact, babies aged between 4-12 months are our most popular booking and they just so happen to be my favourite to capture. Look at the smiles on display below and it’s not that hard to see why. This special age is absolutely perfect for getting the most out of your time in the studio. It allows us to use our wealth of backdrops (the largest collection in Central Manchester), all of our colourful headbands and accessories and as many props as we can squeeze in. It doesn’t matter what look you’re after, from neutral tones to perfect patterns, we’ve got something to suit your style.
Fabulous Family Photography ❤️
It’s no secret that each session is dictated by Baby’s schedule and it’s often typical that newborns wake up just when you need them to be asleep. Luckily it doesn’t matter too much. As long as your little one is nice and relaxed (a full tummy and clean nappy help with that!), we can work with them and at their pace. I’ve seen so many happy parents giggling at the alert expressions their little ones pull and even preferring these shots over the calmer, sleepier alternatives. The sassy poses are my favourite though: check out Reggie swearing at the camera. What a character!
As if you needed any more reasons to fall in love with shots of just-awake newborn babies, cast your eyes over these colourful shots. They’re so sweet – plus, they get bonus points for being adorable sisters. It’s worth pointing out that while vibrant colour tends to be our trademark style, we also make sure to include a healthy dose of neutral set-ups in each session, particularly with newborns. There’s nothing better than a soft and natural look.
From newborn photography to sibling and family portraits, delightfully messy cake smash sessions and shots of toddlers and babies of all ages, we had the best time creating a huge range of gorgeous images in the Baby Boutique this month. It’s not hard when your subjects are this photogenic! Until next month, here are a few extra favourites from June 2019.
Did you newborn photography shoot, cake smash session or family package make it into this month’s blog? Hurray! It would mean the world to our small business if you share this post to your friends and family 🙂 xx
