Newborn photography tips – to sleep or not to sleep?

A newborn baby asleep
Ssshhhh…working with a sleepy newborn is often surprisingly peaceful

When you  have a newborn baby, it can feel like your whole life revolves around sleep: the baby’s, and your own.

It’s an important consideration for us as photographers too – and not just so that we are looking our best when you arrive, rather than a bit bleary-eyed and clutching coffee!

Many of our favourite images of newborns have been taken when they were asleep. But there are other times when we want them to be awake, so we can see those gorgeous big eyes, or catch the look between mum and dad and baby.

So here are some of the things we have learned from years of photographing babies, whether they are asleep or awake…

Sleeping babies:

Are easier to pose, which can result in some of the most adorable images. We can add props, try diferent positions and thanks to our training and experience, all without waking your baby or causing him any distress.

Are quieter, which can mean a more relaxing experience for mum and dad. You may even get to drink a hot cup of tea!

Can be encouraged to drift off with rocking, shushing, swaddling, feeding or with a little help from a dummy. Sheila is our resident baby whisperer and while she works her magic, you can get back to that cup of tea.

Are generally more likely to be keep still. They may twitch or stir but there is unlikely to be the flaiing of arms and legs that all parents will be familiar with. Which in turn can make it easier to get fantastic photographs.

Awake babies:

Can be calmed with a feed, a cuddle or distraction, eg a favourite toy or a something that makes noise or lights up.

Will often lie still in a parent’s arms, allowing for some beautiful close-up images of their face. Any background such as clothing can always be edited out later.

If it’s an older baby, that all-important smile can often be achieved by interaction with the parents, so now is the time to lose those inhibitions and start singing, dancing and doing all those things you know he loves to see.

Some babies are more reluctant to wake up than others. But it can be done – some of our tried and tested methods include undressing them, wiping a cold cloth over their face, a nappy change, lifting them upright and gently lying them back down, or offering a feed. With all of these, it’s important to attempt them during your baby’s lighter sleep, and to keep the lights in the room dimmed, otherwise he won’t want to open his eyes.

But if all else fails, enjoy the peace and that cup of tea. It won’t be long before the little one is awake again and letting everyone know about it! Luckily, we always allow plenty of time for our newborn shoots so there is absolutely no pressure and definitely time for more tea…

Who will be Baby of the YEAR?

Mothers’ Day is two weeks away, but two local mums are hoping for an extra present the following day.

They are the proud parents of two of our Baby of the Month winners who have won a place in the national final – and the chance of winning £5,000.

Leo and Mason Ripley were winners in the April Baby of the Month competition.

The images of little Teddie and twins Leo and Mason are among 60 being considered by a panel of judges including mums, photographers and sponsors.

The overall Baby of the Year winner will be announced at a ceremony in London on March 6 with Professor Robert Winston, who is a renowned fertility expert and has also presented several television programmes on babies and children.

Baby Teddie was the winner of the December Baby of the Month contest, while Leo and Mason won in April. Thousands of images from photographers across the country are considered throughout the year., and each is judged by a panel of mums and separately by a panel of photographers.

Their scores are combined with points based on the number of Facebook likes each image receives on the competition’s page. The top five each month then go forward to the final of Baby of the Year.

It’s an understatement to say we are excited about having not one but two photos in the final, and our tickets arrived this week which makes it even more real.

So watch this space for the announcement on March 7. And if you have a little one who is under one year old, why not enter them for the 2016 competition? It could be your tot’s photo in the final next year!

Entry to the Baby of the Month competition is free with special offers on prints from the studio sessions. For more information or to reserve your slot call 01227 370650 or text BOMCOMP to 07824 166141.

Christmas shopping sorted!

Photographic gifts make great presents for the whole family – whether it’s a beautiful print or a portrait session

Christmas shopping season is well underway, but we have some good news to save you from braving the crowds and the cold.

Here at Style Photography we can offer perfect presents for the whole family, whether it’s a voucher for a portrait session or a print to take pride of place on the mantelpiece.

Don’t believe us? Read on for our guide to gifts that are unique, thoughtful and will bring joy for years to come…

We’ve drawn up a list for our photography family to show that there is an option for everyone – just get in touch for more information.

Mum: As well as a volunteer to do the washing up, or the opportunity to have a bath in peace, most mums love having the whole family together. So why not book a family photoshoot, meaning that not only will her wish come true (just make sure everyone is free on the same day first!), but she’ll also have some beautiful images to treasure forever. You can even combine it with a makeover for mum, or organise lunch or an afternoon tea for the same day.

Dad: Football-loving dad? How about letting him live out his dreams with a photoshoot featuring him wearing his favourite team’s kit?

Would your dad like to put himself in the picture like his footballing heroes?

The results are seriously impressive and will make him feel like Ronaldo or Rooney, even if in reality he’s more Sunday league. Or if your dad is more into business than ball sports, how about a lovely print of the children or grandchildren that he can keep on his desk?

Brother: See our dad’s suggestion if your brother sees himself as the next David Beckham. Or if he’s grown up with a family of his own, how about a voucher for a family photoshoot? If he has very small children, our Cherubs package could be perfect and also means you’re likely to be rewarded with a copy of one of the beautiful images to remind you just how cute your little niece or nephew is.

Sister: We offer a range of makeover sessions that could be perfect for your sister, from shoots designed for teenagers to boudoir portraits that will leave her looking and feeling gorgeous. Of course, if you’d rather play it safe and involve the whole family, then the family photoshoot options outlined above would also work well.

Uncle: We’re going to mention football again – you could even get the boys all together, assuming they support the same team! If they don’t, how about abandoning friendly rivalry and going for a family shoot that is men-only – the results could be simply stunning.

Aunt: There are a host of options that could work for your aunt, depending on her personality and your relationship. From the boudoir or makeover shoots, to vouchers for family sessions or a beautiful image showing all the cousins together – get in touch if you need some help narrowing it down.

Cousin: Cousins can be difficult to buy for, but there is no need to resort to socks or smellies. Instead, how about inviting them to a family photoshoot that gets everyone together? Or you can get creative with prints and use them to make a collage of the whole family to remember the fun you all have.

Grandparents: If your grandparents are anything like ours, their house will be full of photos documenting the family over the years. So why not bring the collection up to date with an image showing everyone all together – including them!

Or perhaps a photo of the newest additions, or images from a fun shoot featuring props that highlight each members’ personality or hobbies?

Niece: A Frozen-inspired photoshoot – take a look at some of the great images we have produced for other little Anas and Elsas! Or if she’s older, one of our makeover packages could be great at reminding her just how beautiful she is.

Nephew: Your little nephew may like to spend a morning as Olaf, especially if his sister is being one of the Frozen princesses, and it means you can tick two gifts off the list at once. But older boys may prefer the football-inspired shoots above, or if their hobby is mountain climbing or scuba diving, we can even incorporate that into a portrait session.

Friend: Let your friend discover how stunning she really is with a boudoir session or makeover shoot. And you can even book the same for you and make it an experience you share together – happy Christmas to you both!

The ideas above will hopefully have provided some inspiration for your shopping this year but if you have someone else who is hard to buy for, or if you would like more information or suggestion, please do get in touch. Give us a call, drop us an email or pop into our convenient High Street shop – it’s nice and warm and you can park for free on the streets nearby. See you soon!
