Baby Freya ~ 25 days new

Welcome to the world, baby Freya 

Freya [f r ai - y uh], meaning a noble woman

Born on 6th June 2017


I had the pleasure of photographing my lovely friend’s little baby girl last weekend – Freya, 3 weeks new. She took her time coming in to the big wide world, but boy was she worth the wait.

Hosting the session from my home studio, we were able to take advantage of the beautiful morning light. The weather Gods were on our side, it can sometimes get tricky solely being a natural light photographer – especially in Ireland! Generally there isn’t enough light, when it is raining or overcast, but we've had a few lovely summer days with beautiful sun, which can mean that it can TOO bright! Believe it or not ;) 

The Process

I started off Freya’s first photo shoot by settling her into a deep sleep, getting her used to my voice (funny accent!) and sounds of the room. She gladly slept way on my big comfy beanbag and I was lucky enough that she let me change the setups around to get a mixture of colour and texture in her photos.

Every shoot gets a video reel

However for me, the most important photos in a newborn photography shoot is the parent shots. I love showcasing the love that this family has. Take a look at their video reel here to see for yourself! 

Newborn Photography Shoots

If you’re interested in a newborn photography shoot, please don’t hesitate to get in touch - I’d love to meet you and your new arrival! Bookings fill up fast, so it’s always a good idea to secure a date while you’re still pregnant. I’ll hold a few weekends around your due date so that you are guaranteed to meet that sweet spot while your baby is still super sleepy and settled.
