Tired mum, marmalade stains and Dad napping… An honest review of a newborn photography session!
As soon as I found out I was expecting a baby, I excitedly booked my newborn session. I’d been following Emma for a while on Instagram and just KNEW I had to have my newborn images taken by her. Now the dust has settled, it feels like AGES since my newborn session and my little one has grown so much! Here’s my review of the newborn photography experience.
I’d been looking forward to the shoot all the way through my pregnancy and once my little girl arrived I tiredly filled out the questionnaire provided, to give my input on the colours and styles I wanted, the euphoria of my little one finally being here giving me the energy to do it!
As the session date approached though, I found myself feeling more and more apprehensive. The days were passing by in a blur of sleepless nights, nappy changes and feeds. I didn’t know what day it was, some mornings I even think I forgot my name! Was I really ready to take my baby out? Would I cope? Was it too soon? I panicked that I would forget something essential or arrive with my shoes on the wrong feet, with unbrushed hair!
I decided to voice my concerns to Emma, who had been really approachable throughout the whole enquiry and booking process. I am SO glad I did! She completely reassured me and put my worries to bed. She explained again how the session would work and what I needed to bring and what would be required of me (basically sitting down on her comfy sofa and having a rest! which sounded VERY desirable.)
