Newborn Photoshoot in Chelmsford – Lilly

Lilly – 10 days old

Newborn Shoot Location: Chelmsford, Essex
Wedding Photographer: Nathalie Delente

Lilly’s mum is a lady I have known for several years now. We met at local breastfeeding group when your then babies were very young. Since then I have had the honour of photographing two of her newborn babies,

“the newborn shoot was a surprise for daddy’s Christmas present’

Lilly was born a couple of weeks early and she was still quite a sleepy little baby when she came in for her photoshoot. The very fact that she chose to sleep through the session made it so much easier. As you can see from one of the photographs she did have a couple of very large yawns! – this is always really cute if you’re quick enough to catch it on camera !

Something that I did a little different in this newborn photoshoot was that I shot it all in natural window light. I usually shoot with my studio lights using Elinchrom D-Lites but I wanted to take advantage of the natural window light that we had. Overall, I’m delighted with the final outcome of the images and think I’ll be shooting a lot more natural light newborn photoshoots.
