Capturing a child’s fleeting newborn stage is so important to so many parents out there but trying to get that elusive, perfect pic of a sleeping infant can be beyond frustrating. At Nicci Landman Photography we take the stress and worries out of the picture!
My first contact with a family is the first step in establishing a lasting relationship. Photographing newborns is an intimate and personal experience for parents and that is why I always prefer the family home as opposed to my studio, as it sets the perfect mood for the shoot as everyone is relaxed and at ease.
At 14 days old, little Joshni was an absolute pleasure to capture! As long as she was warm and snug she’d let me capture her most precious moments, whether she was in a peaceful sleep, in a cuddle-some pose or had a subtle, but very warm smile. One of the key aspect to a successful newborn shoot is keeping the baby happy! And a warm baby is a happy baby! Capturing these moments with mom and dad are truly special, at times like these as it can be quite overwhelming to some new parents and sometimes this can cause set backs in the shoot, but it is moments like these reminding them of how precious their baby girl is.
The softest of baby blankets don’t even come close to the touch of this little one’s soft skin. One of her distinctive features was her bright, gracious and lovable face which is crowned (as all little princesses should be) with a full head of baby-fine ebony hair and her tiny rosy lips. Her eyes at 14 days old having that striking and gentle shine to them really made these images special to shoot. It is in these photos where you can see that baby Joshni is a loved, warm, happy and totally secure baby-girl. It was too special to see the little smile start to frame that perfect tiny mouth at her Dad in the ‘Daddy and Me’ shot. One of the most lovely Dad and baby daughter shots that have been done.
What a precious little petal princesss in the rose petal shot, her lovely tone against the staging colouring made for a most excellent image. Mom with her gorgeous sheet of hair framing such a warm, loving and nurturing face made the family shot complete for a successful shoot.
Butterfly eyelashes and completely protected by the adorability factor, baby Joshni was a delight to shoot capturing many perfectly photogenic shots for such a tiny tot.
Mom, Dad and Baby Joshni are a beautiful family, all with rich and eye catching features to photograph and you can see in each photo the love, joy and how much they love and cherish one another creating that warm family ambience.
May there be love, laughter and much blessing in this new little family unit in the years to come. I am sure Baby Joshni will be a blessing everyday. May these images be a reminder of these blissful moments.
