I was asked to do a family shoot for Sophie and her family, and I asked if I could try my hand at a newborn session too as I had been hanging out for a baby girl to photograph.
Sophie was having trouble settling, and the shoot went on for quite some hours. This poor little darling had a very sore tummy, which she relieved herself of onto almost ever piece of fabric I took with me! Also, although edited out of these particular images, Sophie had hormone acne all over her face, which I dealt with in Photoshop. I included the unedited images for the parents too.
I was getting very flustered and was thinking “Oh my god, I hope I have some images to deliver!”. Turns out I need not have worried. Even though she never really fell into a deep sleep all that patience and editing paid off.
These are still some of my favourite images to date.
