Baby Girls, Girls, Girls!
Sugar and spice and everything nice…
There was a time when it felt like I was only photographing newborn boys, not that there is anything wrong with that but I was missing the chance to play with headbands and the associated froth that comes with baby girls. Well someone must have heard me as the last six newborns in the studio have all been bouncing baby girls.

Hold onto your hats, it’s about to get cute!
First up was Miss M. Her family don’t want her to be on social media and I respect their wishes just like I did when they bought her big brother to the studio as a baby a few years ago.
That said, I am giving nothing away with this image, and who doesn’t love baby feet?
Next up was Miss Mia who has not one but two big brothers to look out for her. I had captured her youngest brother’s cake smash so it was lovely to see them again with their new addition.
Both of them are totally smitten, that girl is going to be so spoiled!!
Whilst they did very well keeping themselves amused during Mia’s two-hour session she took it all in her stride and snoozed away for the most part. How blooming delicious are those cheeks?
Next up was Miss Niamh, whose cousin I’d photographed last year so I was recommended to her parents. 🙂
As you can see she was the best Christmas present ever for her mum and dad. I try and include one of these Vintage Scale composites for all of my newborn clients as it’s a cute way to record all the birth details and can make a great Announcement/Thank You card.
Miss Niamh was also the first baby to try out my Session Onesie. Designed for Photographers it covers the nappy better than normal onesies and is great for the ‘mugshots’ I do at the end of the session. I love these pared-down simple black and white shots so much.
Ohhh emm geeee! Miss Thea or Teddy as she’s nicknamed is my good friend’s new little one. Never in the history of newborns will a baby be more photographed than this one! I can’t wait for babysitting duties so I can whisk her into the studio! Over and over again!
As you can see mum and dad are totally smitten with this long-awaited bundle of cuteness.
She was gifted a matching Foo’s t-shirt to her daddy’s so I had to have them twinning. If you look closely you can see she also has tattoo sleeves on to match her daddy. I wonder which really cool friends gifted the sleeves (oh that’s right it was Mr JB and I!).
With a nickname like Teddy, this had to happen. I only hope she doesn’t hate me when she’s eighteen! Still by that point I will have probably taken millions of pictures of her!
Miss Isabella came in with a shock of wonderful black hair. She also came to the shoot with a big brother who was very excited about his new role.
He looks proud as punch, doesn’t he?
I also got to try out one of my new for 2022 props with Miss Isabella. A little boho bed.
So many great ideas for this prop going forward.
Finally last week I met Miss Ellie who also had lots of hair (must be a winter baby thing?).
Mum bought this cute outfit as soon as she knew she was having a baby girl. I always ask parents if they have any outfits with them they want to put their baby in. Miss Isabella seemed quite pleased with herself in this outfit judging by that grin!
Some babies sleep through their entire session and some, like Miss Ellie, stay awake so they don’t miss out on any of the fun. I always reassure parents that we will get lovely images either way. Here we tried to give Miss Ellie some sheep to count but that didn’t send her off to the land of nod!
I’ve loved having all these gorgeous girls in the studio but I’m ready for some baby boys too. So come on, where are all my boys at?
