O wow to be a newborn photographer really is such a pleasure. I feel so blessed everyday to be photographing newborn babies as young as 4 days old. One of my first clients about 7 years ago came to me straight from Craigavon Hospital, little Charlie was just 4 days new and such a tinny baby. I am often asked how do I manage to curl and handle a baby so small and my answer is simple just years of experience.
I have been an Photographer now for over 16 years and I have photographed every type of photography from weddings, newborns, families, children and even horses and some commercial work for the food and product industry.
I have never shyed away from a photography session. I have often said to my husband you never know where that job will take me. This has been so true I have been amazed when I answer my phone and hear what the person on the other end says “is this the photographer?” You really never know what you are going to be asked. I have photographed Joey Dunlops wife way back many moon ago, for an amazing calendar the ladies where making to raise funds for charity. I have been asked to photograph Ian Paisley senior at an opening of a church. The list just goes on and on and I have been so pleased to have been apart of all these journeys others have taken.
I have great pleasure in now being fully trained for the past 7 years or so in newborn photography and newborn safety, that is the most important part of my job that I know when the baby is stressed or needing fed or when the nappy is needing changed, I often am asked by my clients would I baby sit their newborn on the night shift as they see how loving and caring I am during their newborn photography session with myself.
This newborn baby was just 12 days new. There is something so special about taking a newborn and making a piece of ART with your photos. I am not one of those photographers who just pops a baby onto a beanbag and takes an image. I love nothing more than making sure I am trained to the best I can be and creating art with my photography.
