There are few things in life as joyous as the birth of a new baby. Douglas will photograph your baby, including newborns, in your London home, working quietly, calmly and patiently to get perfect, beautiful shots. Douglas likes to involve the whole family because photographs of older siblings or grandparents, aunts and uncles holding babies make naturally gorgeous shots.
Douglas is often the photographer at christenings and baby naming ceremonies, taking photographs during services and the parties afterwards for a complete record of the day.
Before the shoot, we will discuss practical considerations such as the best time for Douglas to arrive when your baby is alert and happy, and not in need of a meal or a nap! Douglas will quickly assess and organise a variety of poses and locations for the shoot, including where your house or garden has the best natural light, seeking to avoid the use of any flash photography.
Douglas took the most fantastic pictures of Joshua as a baby and me a few weeks after he was born. The session was relaxed and fun, producing photos that are quite stunning. Everyone who comes to the house asks who took them. Douglas has caught Josh's personality at a very early age and we will treasure the pictures forever.
