I didn't know it at the time, but Dominik was my last Pre-Pandemic newborn session! Not the thing I would ever imagine remembering a session for!

This handsome young man was just 15 days old when he visited my Tawa portrait studio with Mum and Dad for his first photos. Which is pretty much the ideal time for newborn photos. The baby's are still nice and sleepy at this age and quite happy to let you pose them.

As part of my pre session consultation, I like to find out what colours the parents would like to incorporate into their baby's session. Dominik's Mum picked out some gorgeous colours for her wee man. Some classic blues for boys and a lovely deep green which suited his skin tone beautifully! I think he quite liked it too ;)

My usual newborn session workflow is to begin with family photos. We got some lovely cuddles and snuggled up shots of the whole family which I just love. By the time we've finished that part, baby is usually in a nice deep sleep and ready to begin their solo performance! Dominik was a star and we breezed through the session.
