There's something about taking pictures of a new born, ideally in the first few weeks whilst they are all still nice and scrunched up, generally asleep. Wait a little longer and they know you are there and make life just a little bit harder. Babies can be unpredictable at the best of times so I always make sure to have plenty of time when shooting them.
So here I was taking pictures of this little lad. I only got the call the evening before but that didn't stop me from planning the shoot and thinking about the best way of doing it.
It's important for me to get a variety of images both of the baby with the parents and then on their own.
