Wow, what a year it’s been!

I thought I would roll my end of year wrap up and tier 4 announcement all into one update, as it’s been a crazy 24 hours since having to close the studio once again.

Sadly the studio doors have shut for a third time from today until at least the next update in a fortnight, however it’s more than likely that January is going to remain closed for all non essential business. All January clients, I will email you at some point today to discuss options moving forward. Please be patient with me if you can. I can’t wait to see you all as soon as we are allowed to again, it will just be a little later than planned.

I just wanted to thank you for your incredible support and send all of my love in what has been a very tough year for us all, a year that like no other has rocked our entire existence. Your patience with rearranging sessions over both previous lockdowns and having such amazing understanding has made my life far less stressful than it could have been, and for that I am grateful.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any enquiries or booking requests, I’ve always got my phone to hand so don’t be afraid to send me a message. I’m fully booked in February, and anticipate this to realistically filled with reschedules, however I do have room for maybe one more sitter or newborn, so please do pop me a message. As ever, if restrictions are in place which stop me being open, we will simply reschedule and capture those precious memories as soon as we are able to.

So before all of our social media gets jammed with messages and well wishes tonight, I’d like to wish you all a Happy New Year, and I can’t wait to see you in 2021.

I’ll leave you with some of my favourite newborns from the last 12 months.

All my love,
Victoria @ Blue Bean Photography

Christmas photo sessions all wrapped up for 2020! | Derbyshire & Leicestershire https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/12/christmas-mini-photo-sessions-christmas-in-Leicestershire

.... and with that, I’m signing off from the computer for Christmas! I can almost smell the rhubarb gin.

I must extend my thanks to everyone for their support for what has been an extraordinary year, especially to my family who haven’t seen me since the beginning of October even during lockdown #2.0, I have virtually lived at the studio every weekend for the last 11 weeks.

I must apologise to my neighbours at work who have had to put up with back to back Christmas tunes, but as you can see I enjoy every second of my Christmas mini photo sessions. I love seeing the familiar little faces return every year, telling me what they have been up to and excited to see what the big man will bring them. I hope here at @Blue Bean Photography, we add to that Christmas magic.

This year despite having to close the studio for 4 months I have met 67 newborns, photographed 12 first milestone birthdays, 16 little sitters, 8 bumps and 74 Christmas sessions.... yep that’s right 74. Many of you returned with your 2nd, 3rd or even 4th brand new bundles, and as you know I love seeing you all again throughout the years, we do have such a laugh don’t we?

I'll leave you with just a few of the many gorgeous families I've met this Christmas.

To finish, I'd like to wish Merry Christmas to all my lovely customers that have supported my business again in 2020 and wishing you all a brilliant New Year.

13 day old Angelo | UK Award Winning Newborn Photographer in Derby https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/12/12-day-old-jaden-celebrity-newborn-photographer

Angelo from Derby another beautiful little boy welcomed into the world this last month with cheeks for days!

What a handsome little lad, those lovely long fingers and lips that were so smooshable. I love that we used these deep greens, navys and wooden tones in his photo shoot, he was so sleepy and comfy. Little Angelo was such a delight, he just rocked his photo shoot and was simply wonderful.

When’s the Best Time to Photograph Your Newborn Baby?

The first two weeks of a baby’s life are the best times to have a newborn photography session. During this time babies are very sleepy and will usually be settled through most of the photo shoot. Many babies often enjoy being curled up int the foetal position they were in in the womb, and this allows the photographer to capture lovely curled up poses, and all of the tiny details that make your baby unique.

After the first two weeks babies have usually started to uncurl, stretch out and are a lot more alert. They’re awake much more but not yet able to move, support their head or do things independently. If you’ve missed the newborn stage I recommend waiting a few months and booking your photo shoot for when your baby is around 6 months of age when they are sitting and becoming more independent.

Gorgeous George | Newborn Photographer in Etwall https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/11/gorgeous-george-newborn-photographer-in-etwall

George from Etwall in South Derbyshire another beautiful little boy welcomed into the world this last month was a little sweetheart for us in the studio!

What a beautiful baby boy, I love that we used these neutral tones in his photo shoot, he looks so comfy. Little George was such a poppet, he would scrunch up and relax into his poses! I love when parents come to my studio and have a plan for what they want from their photo gallery. I enjoyed our session with George, because he posed so well for his session.

Don't leave it too late - book your newborn session with me :)

12 day old Dylan | Newborn Photography Derby https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/11/Dylan-12-day-newborn-photography-derby

Little Dylan came to visit the studio from Derby at just 12 days new with his lovely mummy and daddy.

This little man's mummy first got in touch about 3 months before her due date to book in her newborn photo shoot, after photographing their first born a few years previous she knew she had to book in early to guarante a space in the studio diary. We discussed everything she liked and wanted from her session over email and booked her in the studio diary based on her due date, then firming up the session once baby arrived. I had a good idea what colours and tones she loved with our pre-session consultation, mum absolutely loved the navys and pale blues I often shoot for little boys, so by the time Dylan and his family arrived at the studio we were ready to start shooting without having to interrupt the flow of the photo shoot.

I firmly believe that communication between the client and the photographer is absolutely vital. If you do decide to book into the studio for a portrait session, get in touch with me, so we can talk about the logistics of the shoot.

Cute little Cora | Newborn Photography Market Bosworth https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/11/cute-little-cora-newborn-photography-market-bosworth

Welcome adorable baby Cora! This sweet baby girl was born in October before the second Covid-19 lockdown and joined her parents and big brother Christopher at her newborn photo session, they luckily made it to the studio just days before we had to close the doors again.

The holy grail for many newborn photographers is a sleeping baby.  A properly chilled out, floppy boned, nothing will wake me milk-coma is music to the ears. As a studio photographer shooting for a newborn session I worry less about whether your baby is sleepy enough to curl up into a perfect pose, and more that they are settled…but I am not going to look a snoozing gift horse in the mouth! 

Enter Cora, officially the most chillaxed baby of the month. This sweet, gorgeous little girl did not so much as peep from under an eyelid the whole time I was taking her family photos.  As a result we captured so many wonderful images of her in a variety of “ natural poses”, all of which she gently wiggled, stretched, or otherwise manoeuvred into herself.

Thank you so much for letting me spend the morning with you and your wonderful family. You are going to have the most entertaining and fulfilling time with this little lady - I just know it. I hope you love some of the images I captured of your morning at my studio.

10 day old sleepy girlie Violet came to the studio from Church Gresley in Derbyshire this week. Violet, scarletts and purples were obvious colours of choice for her session and she was a true professional and gave us lots of sleepy poses...a little model in the making! A few taken from Violets session below, how much hair does this beauty have?

12 day old Leighton | Newborn Photography Training Derby https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/10/12-day-old-leighton-newborn-photography-training-derby

Are you looking to be a newborn photographer? Do you know how important it is to be trained prior to handling a baby and trying to pose them for newborn photography?

I was lucky to meet little local baby Leighton for his newborn session this week. His mum so very kindly let him model for our studio training day as well, and he slept perfectly for my mentee.

At “Blue Bean Photography” I teach 1-1 mentoring and training to help give you a strong foundation to start your career as a newborn photographer. In our workshop I teach safe posing techniques, soothing and editing. It is so important to get this foundation prior to trying to photograph newborns as safety is the most important factor in newborn photography. Here, I trained Vika 1-1 mentoring and she loved learning about all the safe techniques and was surprised at how some poses were done. During 1-1 mentoring on newborn photography I teach things that took me over 8 years to learn! It is so important to give yourself this foundation before starting your career and putting newborn safety at risk.

My 1-1 newborn photography training days include little newborn models that I show you how to pose safely with and go through my posing flow to create a quicker and comfortable session for baby. My editing techniques are also taught and cater to saving time in your editing workflow so you can spend more time with family! It is quite a full day packed with information but crucial to beginning your career as a newborn photographer. My attendees feel ready to start their business and are informed on how to do poses safely and keep baby happy! My 1-1 mentoring ensures you get my full attention and can ask any question you like. I also provide ongoing support for my attendees after their workshop and as they start their new career in newborn photography.

I absolutely adore teaching newborn photography as it is my true passion in life and I adore meeting other photographers. To book your newborn training workshop please contact me at bluebeanphotographyuk@gmail.com

Introducing 12 day old baby Nellie | Celebrity Newborn Photographer Derby https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/10/introducing-12-day-old-baby-nellie-celebrity-newborn-photographer-derby

These sisters just warmed my heart, meet Evie and her 12 day old baby sister Nellie, both are the goregous daughters of former TOWIE star Maria Fowler and UK BMX champion Kalvin Bately.

What a pair of beauties, they made my job a breeze last week. Nellie slept like a pro, and Evie was all smiles throughout. Can't wait to see you all again at Christmas guys!

Maria, announced the news that Nellie had arrived on social media in September and penned: 'Nellie Maria Batey. 29th September 2020 9.31am 7lb 2oz

'Delivery was incredible. We’re both home and well. Our hearts are so full, she is just perfect. Thank-you to all at Derby Royal hospital for everything, Ward 314 you were all amazing.'

Are you pregnant and wondering when the best time is to book your newborn Photography session? Don’t worry, even though this is a very common thing to think about, it’s a question that worries people and they tend to leave it until after the birth and then struggle to book a photographer.

As a newborn photographer I make room on my calendar by scheduling only one or two newborn sessions per week. A newborn photo shoot is often the only shoot I will arrange for that particular day. If your baby comes a little bit early or is slightly overdue don’t worry, only taking 3-4 newborn bookings a week allows me room to move things around in order to guarantee your booking.

I recommend having your newborn session within the first 21 days of your little one being born. There are a few reasons for this, they are a lot more sleepy in those first few weeks of life, they are still very curly from being tucked up inside and settle better into the natural position they were in before they made their big arrival into the world.

1st year Cake Smash Photoshoot for Sophie! | Baby Photographer Derbyshire https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/10/1st-year-cake-smash-photoshoot-for-sophie-baby-photographer-derbyshire

Happy 1st Birthday to little Sophie! It was wonderful to welcome back this beauty from Lincolnshire back to the studio when I saw her as a 2 week old newborn.

Little Sophie came to see me for her first birthday cake smash. We got lots of smiles and she had a great time! Just a few images below from her session.

For those of you who have never heard of a “cake smash”, it basically involves presenting a cake to birthday boy or a girl  and then photographing them having lots of fun smashing it up (traditionally done for a 1st birthday). It may sound a bit weird – like my husband asked before I organised a smash for our youngest son, why would you want to waste a perfectly good cake? But cake smashes are growing in popularity and can be a lot of fun for everyone involved!

2 week old Teddy | Newborn photography in Leicestershire https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/10/2-week-old-teddy-newborn-photography-in-leicestershire

Capturing these first few weeks of a newborn baby's life is truly something special. It’s amazing how tiny they are and how much they start changing from day one! Look at how tiny Teddy looks in his parents arms!

The wonderful world of newborn photography now seems to be moving into more composites! It suddenly gives you the advantage of endless props and colours. And the best bit is that it means when I take composite images, I don’t have to pull baby around, and get them in and out of things, which means safer and less stressful shoots for babies and of course Mum’s and Dad’s!

During your session, we take a few specific photographs purely to create these digital art pieces that are something a little bit extra special and exclusively designed just for you, take a look at teddy in his Teddy suit, perfect right?

This little sweetheart popped over from Mickleover to see us for her first portrait photos with her big sister Imogen with whom I also met as a newborn 4 years ago. I have far to many images to share of this sweet baby girl and her family, so I am sharing just some of my favourites. Today’s post will surely put a smile on your face. Miss Isla was so much fun to photograph and her newborn session turned out so perfectly! Look at her adorable dainty little face.

1st year milestone session for Lennon! | Baby Photographer Burton on Trent https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/9/1st-year-milestone-session-for-lennon-baby-photographer-burton-on-trent

Happy 1st Birthday Lennon! It was wonderful to welcome back this happy little man who I last saw as a newborn for his milestone session this month. Just look at that cheeky face.

It's been so lovely to share and capture Lennons first year. It just goes to show how much they change and grow in such a short period of time and why every moment is precious. It's an honour to capture these special moments in their lives and help create those memories that last a lifetime. The images I create help keep that memory alive for years and years to come.

14 day old Raia | Newborn Photographer Burton upon Trent https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/9/14-day-old-raia-newborn-photographer-burton-upon-trent

Raia came to the studio for her first photos along with her big sister Noula and parents, she was a sweet little soul, we just had to share some images from her session.

Big sister Noula, right from the second I opened the door wanted to show me how much she absolutely loved her new baby sister, Raia. She even tried to help Daddy carry her in the car seat, bless her. I find it fascinating observing how not only the young but older siblings are around the new arrival and I loved seeing little Noula off her own back wanting to snuggle up to Raia and planting kisses on her head, her little face and expressions were so delightful. Just take a peek at the images below of them together!

I also loved the colours that this little ones Mum picked out for her newborn photography session, very on trend and I can not wait to see the images printed and framed as the colours worked so well together.

Thank you for choosing Blue Bean Photography to capture this special time in your lives. It was really lovely meeting and getting to know you all.

Here are a few favourite images from our session.

This little guy was so so cute. From the moment his family brought him into the studio he had a sweet soft windy smile across his face. I love his gallery as he continued to snooze away and smile for pretty much the entirety of his stay. Meet little Gabriel below, and just take a look at that top image where his proud sister Amelie is grinning- so adorabley now she is a big sister. Thank you for choosing Blue Bean photography as your Staffordshire newborn photographer, it was really lovely meeting you all, especially your little addition.

1 year old Brooke | Abbots Bromley Baby Milestone Photographer https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/9/1-year-old-brooke-abbots-bromley-baby-milestone-photographer

Last week sweet little Brooke came to visit my studio from Abbots Bromley in Staffordshire with her lovely parents for her 1 year sitter session.

Mum and dad wanted to celebrate little Brooke being mobile all on her own with a milestone session at the Blue Bean Photography studio, we went for classic and organic styling for her photoshoot, and these neutral tones worked wonderfully for such a happy little girl.

What is a sitter session? A sitter session is a session between the ages of 6-12 months old. This is usually the time when the child can safely sit on their own. It is my second favourite type of session. Usually, the child is content sitting and being the centre of attention. Brooke did not disappoint. She was like a living baby doll. She smiled and laughed and had amazing eye contact with me and of course her daddy! It was a very fun session and I hope mum and dad cherish these beautiful images of their beautiful little girl!

Thankyou so much for choosing Blue Bean Photography as your Staffordshire baby photographer, here are some of my favourite images from Brookes milestone sitter session.

8 day Old Dexter | Newborn Baby Photographer Warwick https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/8/8-day-old-dexter-newborn-baby-photographer-warwick

All babies are miracles, they really are. It’s even more special when you get to photograph your brand new nephew, and he's just so perfect. Meet our little Dexter at just 8 days old. 

This beautiful and amazing newborn baby boy has stolen my heart and made me an aunt for the first time. It was a total dream come true. Planning for his session was such fun and gave me an excuse to invest in a few more beautiful props for the studio. I had Dexters session planned since my brother announced that he was going to be a first time daddy, I knew I could go to town on what images we would capture for my brother and his family.

If anything this gallery truly represents the style of images I adore to capture, warm colours, organically natural with very minimal props. Baby Dex came to visit the portrait studio for his newborn photography session at just under 8 days old, because he was so fresh he slept like a dream during the entire session! If I could encourage all clients to come to the studio this early I would, he honestly was so easy to work with at this age.

Rupert came to the studio with his mummy and daddy this August. He was simply adorable, such perfect little features and such a peanut! On booking whilst running through what colours his mum wanted me to incorporate she told me she loved greens and browns. I loved having this family in the studio, it was a pleasure photographing him and capturing these early memories for her family.

Thank you for choosing Blue Bean Photography as your Newborn Photographer in South Derbyshire, it was so so lovely meeting you all.

Here are a few favourites from our newborn photography session together, I hope they bring a smile to your day.

4 week old Henry | Newborn Photographer Moira, Derbyshire https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/8/4-week-old-henry-newborn-photographer-moira-derbyshire

Can my 4 week old baby still have a newborn session?

Panic sets in… mum and dad have been so busy preparing for their upcoming bundle of joy that they neglected to plan their newborn photo session. Then, once baby arrives, they are overwhelmed by loving and caring for their newborn baby.  More time goes by without those precious pictures.

I get this type of phone call often… am I too late? Can I no longer get those special images of my baby?  How could I tell them that their newborn child is too old for something… makes no sense, right?  After all, he is only a 4 week old newborn baby!

Posing takes time and patience whether the baby is 5 days old or 4 weeks old. When you have an older baby visit you, however, they are much more aware of your touch and their surroundings. Since they have now had more time to stretch their tiny limbs post-womb, they likely won’t enjoy some of the “newborn” poses either. So, when potential client calls me worried that their 4 week old newborn is too old and they have missed their chance for once-in-a-lifetime photos of their baby, I calmly refer them to my many “older” newborn baby galleries I have photographed. Including, Henry.

We were able to get gorgeous photographs of this little man. Priceless images that his parents will forever cherish. What meant the most to me is something Henrys mum said as she was leaving. “You really are a baby whisperer and you really know what the baby needed”.  Her comment spoke volumes to me because I have devoted years of training, education and love to being a newborn photographer and she acknowledged that in one simple sentence.

I adore these newborn sessions and feel so lucky to be able to do this for new parents and their families. Newborn photography is such a speciality and I’m over the moon excited that I’m a part of telling a story of a brand new little person in this great big world.

Harry 13 days handsome | Newborn Photography Whitwick, Leicestershire https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/8/oliver-18-days-perfect-newborn-photography-ashby-de-la-zouch

I welcomed adorable baby Harry to the studio this week! This sweet baby boy was born at the start of August and joined his mummy, daddy, and big brother Oliver who I also photographed at his newborn photo session just two years ago.

To me, there really is nothing more precious than the bond between siblings. Yes, children of a certain age often bicker and fight. But deep down, siblings have a wonderful and unique bond. I am close to my own brother and wish I had more photographs of us together. Which is why I absolutely adore getting the opportunity to photograph brothers and sisters. Sibling sessions are a great opportunity to capture amazing images of your family. Capturing those important memories that you’ll look back on in years to come.

Thank you so much for letting me spend the morning with you and your wonderful family. You are going to have the most entertaining and fulfilling time with these little boys - I just know it. I hope you love some of the images I captured of your morning at my studio.

2 week old Sonny | Newborn Baby Photographer Ashby de la Zouch https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/8/2-week-old-sonny-newborn-baby-photographer-ashby-de-la-zouch

Meet 2 week old Sonny from Ashby de la Zouch in North West Leicestershire and his amazing mop! Isn't he just a little stunner?

I've been a studio flash photographer for over 8 years now, two years prior to that I was shooting mobile in clients homes using natural light. So when your studio complex experiences a power cut 15 minutes before your client arrives, those old skills have to come into play pretty sharpish... I needn't have worried about getting the results I wanted, Sonny was a perfect poser.

There is no more beautiful thing than being able to give life, it brings out the goddess inside woman don't you think? I had this stunning family come and pay a visit to the studio for their maternity session this month, Both Sam and Ryan knew what they wanted from their session and opted for classic maternity portraiture..

Sam and Ryan are beautiful inside and out. I can't wait to meet their little man, he's going to be a beauty that's for sure!

11 day old Harvey | Newborn Photography Smethwick, Birmingham https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/7/11-day-old-harvey-newborn-photography-smethwick-birmingham

Meet master Harvey from Smethick in Birmingham at 11 days old, he had the sweetest little relaxed personality!

Mummy & Daddy wanted to go for a soft grey look to for Harveys newborn images. Calming, neutral and serene. Once you become a newborn photographer it is hard to even look a bucket and not imagine posing a sleepy newborn inside it...am I the only one?

As a midlands newborn photographer for the past 10 years, I saw this photography genre growing so much in recent years. Every parent now wants to have a lovely portrait of their new baby. They realise that this time is fleeting indeed: the baby won’t be the same in just a few weeks time. Babies do change a lot and parents actually tell me all the time “Oh you should have seen him/her last week, they are so different now”, “She is more alert now”, “His skin was so dry”… and so on.

I’m sure you will love some photos like these too, right?

Have a look at my portfolio to see more of my work. I’ll be delighted to create some beautiful memories for your family as well.

Rosie @ 30 weeks | Coalville Maternity & Pregnancy Photographer https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/7/rosie-30-weeks-coalville-maternity-pregnancy-photographer

Why choose to have a maternity photography session with Blue Bean Photography?

Capturing fleeting and precious moments of your beautiful pregnant shape and creating stunning art inspired by you is what I love to do. Rosie came for her maternity shoot at 30 weeks pregnant and really wanted to incorporate her son Cillian into the session with her.

As an expectant mum, you are probably feeling a huge range of emotions – excitement, anticipation and above all the feeling of unconditional love for this new life that is growing within you.

Exceptional maternity portraits and a truly unique experience. As a professional maternity photographer, it’s my job to make you feel graceful, soft and beautiful in your pregnancy photography session. I want you to be completely at ease and to enjoy every moment of our time spent together. I am also brilliant at putting dads-to-be at ease too which ensures your session is a fun and relaxed experience.

I have a limited number of maternity shoot spaces remaining after mid September. To find out more about my packages, head to www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk or send me a message to book.

Jake, 16 days earthside | Newborn Photographer in Church Gresley https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/7/jake-16-days-hearthside-newborn-photographer-in-church-gresley

Jake from Church Gresley in South Derbyshire another beautiful little boy welcomed into the world this last month with cheeks for days!

What a beautiful baby boy, those lovely long fingers and lips that are so smooshable. I love that we used these Grey, blue and wooden tones in his photo shoot, he looks so comfy. Little Jake was such a delight, he just rocked his photo shoot, he would scrunch up and give the biggest grins! It was so sweet! His momma loved my grey wooly props so I had to use a few of them. They were so adorable on him!

When’s the Best Time to Photograph Your Newborn Baby?

The first two weeks of a baby’s life are the best times to have a newborn photography session. During this time babies are very sleepy and will usually be settled through most of the photo shoot. Many babies often enjoy being curled up int the foetal position they were in in the womb, and this allows the photographer to capture lovely curled up poses, and all of the tiny details that make your baby unique.

After the first two weeks babies have usually started to uncurl, stretch out and are a lot more alert. They’re awake much more but not yet able to move, support their head or do things independently. If you’ve missed the newborn stage I recommend waiting a few months and booking your photo shoot for when your baby is around 6 months of age when they are sitting and becoming more independent.

Roux 9 days new | Newborn Photography Ashby de la Zouch https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/6/roux-9-days-new-newborn-photography-ashby-de-la-zouch

Roux and her adorable big sister Evie came from Blackfordby, Leicestershire for her first baby photos at just 9 days old. It was only a few weeks previous I photographed her mummy for her maternity photo shoot and this time felt like déjà vu.

I get giddy thinking about newborn photography and how long I've been doing my job, I love capturing the teeny tiny details of each little miracle. Newborns are tiny treasures, gifts that are good for the soul. Newborn sessions are some of the most rewarding shoots, yet so demanding as you never know how each baby is going to behave during their sessions. New parents are nervous about it too, babies are so precious and don’t stay teeny tiny for long.... so relax and let me help you capture photos that will last a lifetime!

Lisa @ 33 weeks | Warwickshire Maternity & bump Photography https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/6/warwickshire-maternity-photographer

This is my sister-in-law Lisa carrying our eagerly awaited nephew at 33 weeks pregnant. To say I’m excited is an understatement. Doesn’t she just look amazing? Classy, glamorous, beautiful and strong, and with her two gorgeous girls, she listened, trusted and really let me capture her exactly how I envisaged.

There is something extraordinary about the bond a mother has with her unborn child. It's hard to describe the emotion I can capture during a maternity shoot, and we feel we have to immortalise this incredibly special time in your life.

I use a mixture of professional studio lighting, posing and post-production techniques to create a contemporary style of maternity photography that you and your family will cherish forever.

4 week old Ivy-Jean | Baby & Family Portrait Photographer Burton on Trent https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/6/4-week-old-ivy-jean-baby-family-portrait-photographer-burton-on-trent

4 week old Ivy came for her first photos from Burton upon Trent along with her mummy, dad and adorable big brother and sister Noah and Willow. This family photo shoot was bought as a gift for the family, what a wonderful surprise present don't you think?

As a newborn photographer I make room on my calendar by scheduling only one or two newborn sessions per week. A newborn photo shoot is often the only shoot I will arrange for that particular day. If your baby comes a little bit early or is slightly overdue don’t worry, only taking 3-4 newborn bookings a week allows me room to move things around in order to guarantee your booking.

5 week old Jaxson | Newborn Photographer Measham, Leicestershire https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/6/5-week-old-jaxson-newborn-photographer-measham-leicestershire

Gorgeous couple Ash and Kira came back to the studio for Little Jaxsons 'Oldborn' session, being 5 weeks old he was slightly older than my usual newborn age to photograph, but none the less perfect, just look at those happy big brown eyes and chubby cheeks! 

If you remember back at Easter this lovely couple came to the studio for their maternity photos just before the world went into lockdown, and thankfully so! It breaks my heart that so many families are missing out on their newborn photo shoot because of the social distancing measures. Babies grow and change so quickly, and photographs of them in the newborn stage are so precious to have.

With this in mind I’ve decided to offer a special session for older newborn babies aged 4 to 13 weeks (Oldborns!). These sessions capture a set of beautiful, natural baby and family portraits so you can remember this squishy newborn phase forever. Designed especially for families who have missed the ‘two week window’ or would prefer to wait until their baby is a little older to visit the studio. These sessions capture a set of beautiful, natural baby and family portraits so you can remember this squishy newborn phase forever.

Older newborn sessions are suitable for babies between 1 and 3 months old, and last approximately two hours. During this time we will concentrate on mostly family portraits and those happy wide awake shots and details as you see below in Jaxsons gallery.

You can get in touch to check my availability for these sessions and book your place by emailing bluebeanphotographyuk@gmail.com. 

If you’d like to book before your baby is born I recommend that we book a date approximately 4 weeks after your due date. If your baby is born much earlier than expected just get in touch when they’re born and we can move the session to an earlier time.

6 week old Travis! | Hilton, Newborn Photography Derby https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/6/6-week-old-travis-hilton-newborn-photography-derby

6 week old cutie Travis from Hilton in Derbyshire came for his first portraits just after we returned to the studio after the coronavirus lockdown restrictions lifted. Yet again I was blessed with another newborn baby boy with huge dark brown eyes and lashes for days, it must be the month for it! I usually ask parents to send me a photo of their beautiful baby once little one has arrived into the world, it helps me plan their session to the extent of I can choose wraps, furs and such-like, as it's much easier if I know what the little one looks like. So when mummy sent me an image of their brand new baby boy, I just couldn’t get over how long his beautiful lashes were.

Travis' mama chose natural browns and blues for his session ~ such a lovely mix of organic tones, which really made this baby boys large brown eyes pop out in his images. Because of his age as an older newborn, he was wide awake during most of the session before he drifted back off to a deep snooze, but I'm so glad I could capture these beautiful images.

Im in love with all these photos, thankyou so much for choosing Blue Bean Photography as your Derbyshire Newborn Photographer. Here are some of my favourite images from your session with me.

Cian, 5 weeks new | North Warwickshire baby photography https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/6/cian-5-weeks-new-north-warwickshire-baby-photography

Handsome Can and his family came over from Atherstone for their family portraits. Can was accompanied by his big brother Finn who was a complete gem throughout the session just as he was at his own newborn photography shoot. A perfect little family, don't you think?

Baby photos, why are they so important? You’ll hear it all the time, but it is true, your baby will grow so fast. Especially in that first year. When you bring them home they’re so tiny. Then within months they’re starting to roll over, then sitting and before you know it your little bundle is walking.

They go through so many changes and learn so much in that first year. so baby photos are essential to help you remember all of these incredible moments that seem to go by in a blink.

Christina @ 37 weeks | Leicestershire Maternity & Pregnancy Photographer https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/6/leicestershire-maternity-photographer

Maternity sessions are one of my absolute favourite and coupled with the great outdoors is pure magic! Because of lockdown and social distancing rules, these pregnancy shots were taken in the fields behind my home at golden hour earlier this week when the light is the prettiest, and it was the last evening of sunshine before the warm weather decided to leave us.

Can we just take a moment to appreciate how incredibly stunning Christina looks with her glorious bump! I absolutely adored this maternity photo shoot ๐Ÿ’• Feel free to share with your pregnant friends & family - as always, I appreciate your support

I have a limited number of outdoor spaces remaining after mid July. To find out more about my packages, head to www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk or send me a message to book.

Blake | Outdoor Photography Ashby de la Zouch | Poppy & Wildflower Field https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/5/blake-outdoor-photography-blackfordby-leicestershire

 

I spent a lot of time photographing and doculenting my children during lockdown. I loved seeing how much they have changed since the last time I took the time to hang out and photograph them. Blake my 6 year old came out with me one glorious evening to shoot a few images at sundown in the fields behind our home, we are ever so lucky to have plenty of wildflowers and even a patch of poppies in the field. It only cost me 1000 V-bucks and a Twister lolly, totally worth it.

Outdoor sessions are great for capturing images of lively children at their best, I like to keep them active in a fun outdoor photography session. We will spend our time exploring and photographing your family and I try not to say “Cheese”, when the kids are having fun then we get the real and natural smiles.  

Outdoor sessions are also great for maternity portraits for couples waiting for their first child, or second, third, fourth or fifth! 

All sessions will follow the current government guidelines for social distancing and take place in either NW Leicestershire or South Derbyshire locations....Give me a call or send me a message if you'd like to make some memories!

Tips for photographing your newborn baby at home during Covid19 Pandemic | DIY Photo shoot https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/5/tips-for-photographing-your-newborn-baby-at-home-during-covid19-pandemic So 7 weeks on, Coronavirus still has most of us in lockdown, all non essential work has stopped, having photos taken by a professional photographer is out of the question at the moment as it is not classed as an essential service and my newborn photography business would of course put me in close contact with you and your baby which is a risk to us all.
 
I have been feeling really sad about not being in the baby studio working and thinking of my lovely clients who won’t get the opportunity to have a professional newborn photo shoot at my Derbyshire photography studio.  I have been trying to think of ways I can help during this crisis and have written a guide for taking your own newborn photos at home.
 
You don’t need a fancy camera or any photography skills to capture some lovely memories for you to cherish. So here are a few tips for photographing your newborn baby by yourself.

Newborns grow quickly, making photos a must even if you snap them with a smartphone. But the newborn photography that you see coming from a professional studio isn’t always safe to try at home. With a few newborn photo shoot tips, you can snap your own baby pictures. And get results that won’t look like a Pintrest fail.

Good lighting is the key. At home find a large window with soft light, for example a north facing window or any large area on a bright but cloudy day if your home is south facing, this avoids placing your newborn baby in bright sunlight. When the strong sun hits your babies face it gives really harsh shadows on their face. If it’s a really sunny day, you could hang up a white sheet or a piece of sheer white fabric to help diffuse the light to give the softer light you need.


Place baby so that the light is hitting baby’s head first or gently sweeping in at an angle down babies face, do not have the light coming up from babies feet to chin- this is what we call ‘ghoul lighting’ and is what we want to avoid. When you place your light below a babies eyes, the effect will be similar to putting a touch under your chin when telling ghost stories around the campfire! You will notice shadows under the eyes, and deep, sunken eye sockets. NOT the look you’re going for when photographing soft, squishy little babies!

If you can find a large piece of white card to place on the other side of baby opposite to the light source (window), you will find it will bounce some of the light back in towards your baby and fill in some of the darker shadows. It also may help if you are also wearing white or at least try to avoid wearing a very bright colourful top as this may cause a colour cast on your babies skin.

Babies are best photographed in very little so that you can record all of those tiny features. Gown up baby outfits tend to swamp newborns in their photos and make them look bulky. A simple white ore grey vest so you can see the details of their hands and feet and those adorable little nails, wrinkly arms and legs.  A tight fitting baby grow or try swaddling your baby for some cosy looking photographs.

If your baby is happy and the room is warm, just leave their nappy on and try draping a little blanket or some fabric over and around to hide it. If you are lucky enough to get baby sleeping, try and gently move him or her so their body is not just straight up and down, a little curl is often pleasing to the eye but remember to keep the light coming down the face or across the face, not lighting up their body to their face.If you have baby laying on a blanket, I find that sometimes rolling up a couple of  little hand towels/ flannels and gently placing them under their head and legs can help keep them in these ‘curly’ womb like positions.

If you have baby fast asleep, try and get some detail shots, if your camera will allow, get in close to their face, hands and feet etc. Don’t forget to ask your partner to take some of you holding your new baby too. I know you don’t always feel your best just having given birth but you won’t regret having these photos done, I can absolutely assure you of that! One day those photos will mean the world to you and your child.

7 day old Elsie | Newborn Photographer Burton on Trent, Staffordshire https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/4/7-day-old-Elsie-newborn-photographer-burton-on-trent

7 day old Elsie was one of my last newborns in the studio before I had to close up for the foreseeable future. It is so sad to have to close my studio for the time being. We must keep as many people as we can safe. 

It's not everyday that nannie comes along to the newborn session. She did not plan on being in any photos, but if you know me I talked them into it. How amazing will this be when this sweet princess grows up and looks back at this beautiful memory.

I sure miss snuggling these sweet babies, but for now, I'll be posting past sessions from now on so we can still get our baby fixes.

Luther 10 days old | Newborn Photographer Burton on Trent https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/4/Luther-newborn-photographer-burton-on-trent

Luther's Nannie contacted me last month to see if I had any available slots in the studio diary, usually being one of the busiest time of year we get fully booked for Spring late in the previous Autumn, however we managed to squeeze this little sweetheart in for an early morning session just before the studio went into full lockdown closure due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Welcome to the world Luther! This handsome little lad has a full head of black hair just like mum and dad and this little family was just so laid back and a pleasure to have in the studio and photograph them as a new family of three. Luther was just a joy to work with, I can tell that he is definitely the apple of his parents eyes.

Please let me know if you are looking for a newborn photographer covering Burton on Trent. I would love to meet your bundle of joy when he/she enters the world. The best time to book your newborn session is before baby arrives to ensure availability. It’s such a pleasure to meet so many lovely families doing this job, and of course having cuddles with teeny tiny beautiful new humans!

For bookings contact me at bluebeanphotographyuk@gmail.co.uk

Kira's Maternity Session at 32 weeks | Pregnancy Photographer Leicestershire https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/4/Kira-pregnancy-photographer-Leicestershire

The beautiful Kira paid us a visit from Measham, North West Leicestershire with her lovely partner Ash, and baby boy who is still cooking away nicely inside. Kira was bought her maternity and pregnancy session as a gift from her parents and she had some clear ideas about the type of stunning, simple, deep colour style portraits she wanted - and boy are we glad she did, which meant we could have fun creating a style that suited her! Kira is a natural beauty in the truest sense of the word and was a joy to photograph. We all giggled and chatted all the way through the session and it's clear to see from the images just how comfortable both she and Ash felt in front of the camera.

Two week old Hattie | Newborn Baby Photographer Linton https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/4/two-week-old-hattie-newborn-baby-photographer-linton

Summer feels as if it is finally around the corner! 2 week old Hattie came to the studio with her two big sisters for her first portraits. Little Hattie was simple adorable. She was super squishy and was such a good girl at her first ever photo-shoot! Here at Blue Bean Photography, the studio is kept nice and warm so the little babies don’t feel the cold when undressing them and changing them from prop to prop. It also helps them to stay nice and settled.

Newborn Photographers recommend photographing a newborn under 21 days old, it seems crazy when you’ve just given birth and are settling into life with a new baby. It can be a feat to leave the house at this stage so why on earth would you want to go to a photography studio and have your baby photographed at that age?

Well, after many years of photographing newborns I’ve come to recognise just how much they change week by week after they are born. We want to capture them when they are fresh, tiny and curly just like they were when first born. You want to remember their tiny toes, delicate eyelashes, their little back rolls, wispy soft hair and the way their curl naturally into a womb-like pose all on their own. By one month old they lose their womb-like curliness, are more awake, are spotty and often have bad colic. All of this does not make the easiest session!

When baby is under 3 weeks old they are very sleepy as long as they are warm and full. This helps us to get the gorgeous bucket poses, nude poses and adorable swaddled images.

Availability Update! It is so important to book your newborn session ahead of time so as not to miss out on the 21 day window that newborns are best photographed in! Newborn photographers book a limited amount of spots per month in order to be flexible for early/late arrivals. I do still have some June availability. To book your newborn session please email me at bluebeanphotographyuk@gmail.com.

How I Keep the Studio Clean and Safe | Coronavirus Covid-19 Pandemic https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/4/how-i-keep-the-studio-clean-and-safe-derby-derbyshire-newborn-photographer

Hello friends! My existing clients know that I'm a little nutty (and generally just a little nutty) about sanitising and keeping the studio clean; but, for new clients, here's a little reminder of the safety protocols that are kept in place and will be implemented to keep yours and my family safe!

Unless you have been living under a rock, I’m sure you are aware of the concern caused by Coronavirus. I figured now is the perfect time to go over how I keep my studio safe and clean for my precious little clients and their families. These safety and cleaning procedures have always been in place, not just applied due to the recent scare. I hope this helps ease the worry for my new mums and dads.

  • My plan is to be shooting again starting beginning of July or when the government lifts the close contact restrictions. I will restrict my sessions to only my studio which is exclusive to my use. My studio remains closed right now and has done since 24th March, the newborn arrivals I've spoken with know my plan to still capture their newborn even if it means that their little one will be between 2-8 weeks of age by the time we schedule their newborn photo shoot. Please reach out for rescheduled sessions, just so I dont miss anyone.
  • Once I am back in the studio, understandably I will be very busy and priority sessions will go to those who had already prebooked their newborn session with me and for those, whos babies have arrived first in late March or early April. I wanted to take this time to address upcoming sessions. After careful assessment and considering a variety of things, I've decided to reach out to all clients who were due and booked for late March, the whole of April and early May to offer rescheduling or complete refund options. Time sensitive shoots like newborn sessions will be given the option to continue as planned for now and I will happily photograph your little one up to 8 weeks of age or you will be given the option to reschedule for a sitter, milestone or family session later in the year, with a strict no signs of illness policy by both myself and clients. I don't want anyone stressing!! I'm here for you.
  • I feel it’s important to note that I have an appointment-only studio so the number of people that actually come into the space is very limited, typically only 1-2 families per day, but I will be reducing this timeframe to just one family within a 24hr period. I'm not a fan of maths, but statistically-speaking that has to be way safer than say, a supermarket or GPs waiting room. And the people coming here aren’t sick. I strongly advise clients to reschedule if someone in their family has any symptoms of a communicable disease (fever, sneezing, coughing, runny nose). Not only is that just common sense, no one wants photos of a miserable, crusty-nosed baby. I’m super flexible with my schedule at the moment so please reschedule.
  • As per government and insurance guidelines I will be wearing a mask and gloves for newborn and young children's sessions and will for the most part keep a 2 meter distance from all clients apart from baby.
  • All clothing items, posing fabrics and wraps are washed before use. The majority are washed in the washing machine with non bio detergent. If it is a super delicate material it is hand washed. Posing fabrics and wraps are usually dried in the tumble dryer and outfits and delicate materials are line dried.
  • Yes, poop happens. Often. But I do my best to avoid it happening on my props. If I pose a baby in a prop with delicate, hard to clean fluffy stuff, there’s usually a folded up nappy or hospital pad under their bottom to keep it contained. Any fabric that touches a baby’s skin, with or without accidents, gets washed after their session. My posing fabrics usually take the brunt of the ๐Ÿ’ฉ and ๐Ÿ’งmishaps so they get washed in the washing machine. Tough stains are pre-washed with Vanish hand soap and then a full wash in the machine with non bio liquid. Poo'd on fabric gets washed twice.
  • Babies that are 6 months old and up drool a lot and put everything in their mouths so those outfits get washed and any props/toys that get gnawed on.
  • In the toilet we have soap and water to wash your hands and a air dryer so that we are not reusing fabric hand towels and hand sanitizer in the studio space. I don’t want to leave anything out. ๐Ÿ˜ After every session the changing mats, sink, and toilet gets sprayed wiped down with Detol wipes. And after every session the toilet and studio floor gets a deep steam cleaning.
  • I regularly clean my equipment (camera, lens, etc) with alcohol wipes. Sometimes I go to local hospitals for shoots and I always make sure to wipe everything down before returning to the studio.
  • Let’s see….what else? I wash and sanitise my hands a LOT. I’m also up to date on my flu and pneumonia immunisations. I do have a lot of allergies though, so if I sniffle, don’t freak out, I'm just allergic to the wool in the studio. ๐Ÿ˜ต

I can assure you that my studio is one of the safest, cleanest places you can bring your baby…. even during the Covid-19 Apocalypse of 2020. But if you still have concerns, please don’t hesitate to discuss them with me.

Love,

Victoria ๐Ÿ’œ

Toby @ 10 days old | Newborn Photographer Church Gresley Swadlincote https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/4/toby-10-days-old-newborn-photographer-church-gresley-swadlincote

Every one of the babies I photograph is different, even in their first week, their little personalities are showing. Baby boys tend to sleep deeper than girls, the little ladies in our lives even at a week old, are nosey full of attitude and feel like they’re missing out and love looking around.

Toby was a typical newborn baby boy with a chilled, laid back attitude. He loves a sleepy snuggle with mummy and daddy but was wide awake for his big sister Darcey, not wanting to miss a moment of her playing a chatting, they are sure to become the best of friends!

I often get asked if props are included with my newborn sessions and yes they are! Everything you see in my portfolio is mine and to be used for your newborn session. Newborn Photography is quite an expensive business to be in as prop shopping is addictive! I’ve tried to create a style that uses colour but is still timeless with rustic touches. Half of my sessions use props and then half are posed on fabric like this to create a more simple look. I love collecting simple headbands, bonnets, rustic wood props and fabric backdrops to make every session I do unique and beautiful.

It is so important to book you newborn session ahead of time as newborn photographers take a limited amount of newborns per month to ensure they are available for early/late arrivals. It is best to secure your newborn photo shoot between your 12 or 20 weeks scan if possible. To book your newborn session email me at bluebeanphotographyuk@gmail.com

One week old Aria | Newborn Baby Photographer Derby https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/4/one-week-old-aria-newborn-baby-photographer-derby

Little Aria came to visit the studio last month before all of our lives changes in a matter of weeks. This little beauties mum is a GP and her daddy is a Radiologist, true hero's without the capes. My heart has been incredibly heavy these past few weeks knowing what ALL the front line healthcare workers are going through. While we all stay home, physically distancing ourselves from friends & family - they're running into the unknown. Literally.

Thank you to all the local GP's and their staff, HSE Nurses, Doctors, Hospital Staff, front line workers, carers, and also post workers, supermarket staff and everyone else who is working and sacrificing their time with their loved ones for us.

We applaud you.
We are in awe of you.
We will never forgot what you have done.
We pray for you.

Thank You ♥๏ธ

If you want to book a pregnancy or newborn photoshoot, please do get in contact with me. I look forward to meeting you.

7 day old rockstar Hendrix! | Baby photo shoot Church Gresley Derbyshire https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/2/7-day-old-rockstar-hendrix-baby-photo-shoot-church-gresley-derbyshire

I had a real rockstar in the studio yesterday, meet 7 day old Hendrix. 

I’ve been excited to get my hands on this lil’ peanut for almost 9 months and he couldn’t be any more perfect. I haven’t been this obsessed with a little one since having my last baby over 6 years ago, and at just under 7lbs I could have easily have hidden him in my camera bag, but unfortunately his parents know where I live.

I wanted to share images of gorgeous baby Hendrix with his amazing skin and the sweetest little features. He was a total dream to work with, such an amazing sleeper. I chose light blue, navy, teal and wood-ups which complimented his fair hair and his parents loved them.

Thank you for choosing Blue Bean Photography as your Derbyshire Baby Photographer. Here are just a selection of the many images from Hendrix's session.

Felicity, 14 days fresh | Baby Photography Littleover Derby https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/2/bea-turns-one-baby-photography-etwall-derbyshire

Baby Felicity came to see me with her lovely parents from Litteover in Derby today for her newborn photographs. Mum and dad were bought their session as a gift  for Christmas, what a perfect present to receive don't you think? Apart from being a bit windy (an occupational hazzard for a newborn photographer!) We achieved lots of lovely sleepy shots of her. Here are just a few images from Felicity's morning with me.

Have you ever thought about buying a newborn photography gift certificate for a friend or a family member? This might be one of the loveliest ideas for those who you love. Why not give them the best gift for this happy occasion.

Newborn photography is a lovely experience. Lots of parents like to do it but they don’t get a chance to plan for it ahead of time. With this lovey surprise helps them capture and eternalize the first and most precious moments of the newest member of their family.

Check our collection pricing to see your options. You can either pay a part of of a larger package or the full service. Just ask us about the details and we would be happy to help you.

14 day old Macie rocking her newborn photo shoot! | Wolverhampton baby photos https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/2/14-day-old-macie-rocking-her-newborn-photo-shoot-wolverhampton-baby-photos

Last week sweet little Mac came to visit my studio from Wolverhampton in the West Midlands with her lovely parents.

Some babies come to the studio wide awake, some take some soothing, rocking, feeding and maybe some hugging.....14 day old Macie came to her shoot, fed, prepped and totally ready to rock her session in just 90 minutes! I would happily share her whole gallery but I've picked five of the best to show you how it's done.

As soon as Macie drifted off, we pretty much completed her mini session all the way from start to finish in speedy time. She was so sweet, with her thick shiney dark hair and pouty lips, I was thoroughly enjoying all the snuggles she gave me.

Sia's gallery is a perfect example of the range of images you can achieve in a shorter mini session, as you can see a one colour theme can produce a range of different poses on the beanbag and in props, perfection isn't she?

Thankyou so much for choosing Blue Bean Photography as your Midlands baby photographer, here are some of my favourite images from your newborn session.

Phoebe 10 days of adorable | Newborn Photography Erdington https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/1/phoebe-10-days-of-adorable-newborn-photography-erdington

Meet little miss Phoebe from Erdington in Birmingham. 10 days and with the sweetest personality and daintiest fair features. Mummy wanted to go for a soft, girly feel to Phoebe's newborn images, calming, neutral and serene.

As a midlands newborn photographer for the past 9 years, I saw this photography genre growing so much in recent years. Every parent now wants to have a lovely portrait of their new baby. They realise that this time is fleeting indeed: the baby won’t be the same in just a few weeks time. Babies do change a lot and parents actually tell me all the time “Oh you should have seen him/her last week, they are so different now”, “She is more alert now”, “His skin was so dry”… and so on.

I’m sure you will love some photos like these too, right?

Have a look at my portfolio to see more of my work. I’ll be delighted to create some beautiful memories for your family as well.

Millie-Mae, 14 days perfect | Newborn Photographer Measham https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/1/millie-mae-14-days-perfect-newborn-photographer-measham

This scrumptious little face graced my studio the other day and melted my heart with her big beautiful eyes and expressions. We started off with photos of Millie with her big brother whilst she was wide awake. Apart from being hungry and needing a feed, she was pretty chilled. I love her beautiful little wide eyed facial expressions, such a gorgeous little squish! I adore being able to get photos of the close cuddles and capturing those moments, which are such a part of life with a newborn.

Esmèe-Rose 14 days new | Newborn Photographer Burton upon Trent https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/1/esmee-rose-newborn-photos-burton

I came to photograph 14 day old Esmèe-Rose from Burton upon Trent through a recommendation after putting a newborn model call out on social media for a 1:1 newborn training session I had with another photographer wanting to learn the art and skill of newborn photography. This beautiful little peanut was so good for me!

1:1 Newborn Photography training days are still available from my studio from March through to September 2020.

The best time to book your newborn session is before your baby is born, and the ideal time to photograph your baby is between 5-14 days so they are nice and sleepy and to get those beautiful curly poses.

For bookings contact me at bluebeanphotographyuk@gmail.com

16 day old Freddie | Baby Photography Swadlincote https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/1/11-day-old-louie-newborn-photographer-swadlincote

When you couldn't possibly be more chilled, meet 16 day old Freddie from Swadlincote. I first met this lovely family back in 2015 when they visited the studio with their first born Rosie, and 4 years on she's just as beautiful as she was at 11 days old. Mummy and daddy wanted to keep Freddie's session quite neutral so we went for creamy and black and white tones, which work wonderfully as a gallery.

The best compliment I can ever receive is a retruning client. I cannot explain how happy I am when I get an email saying 'Remember when I came to see you with my baby back in xxxx?, I'd like to book...' So from a huge part of my heart, thank you if you have ever returned to the studio with your second, third, forth or even 5th bundle!

Word of mouth is the best way I share my business, so thank you all again.

Baby Jude 19 days old | Newborn Photographer Staffordshire https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/1/baby-jude-19-days-old-newborn-photographer-staffordshire

Keeping it simple in the studio. I met such a sweet baby boy this week 19 day old Jude and his amazing highlighted hair! Jude came along to the studio from Staffordshire.

It always feels special to be selected by my families to share a baby photo shoot during the newborn phase and I'm always mindful and appreciative of this. I treat every baby session as a privilege, remembering our own experiences of parenting in the sleepless early days. Visitors to the studio have to put up with my ridiculous ramblings too as I coo over their new baby, I do it every time and make no apology!

Just as his big sister did a few years back, this handsome little man slept soundly throughout his shoot, captivating us with his chilled out temperament. It’s a rewarding feeling to work with a newborn baby, and as they’re so unaware of their setting we ensure they are warm, safe, positioned comfortably and respectfully so their images remain classic for a lifetime.

Beatrix age 13 months | 1st Birthday Photographer Swadlincote https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/1/three-times-the-fun-cake-smash-photographer-derby

Little Miss Beatrix first came to see me when she was only 12 days old for her newborn photo shoot, so when mummy got in touch again to say they wanted to come back to celebrate her first birthday I was super excited to see the family again. At 13 months old she was full of cheekiness during her portrait images, she was on the go the entire time and surely had ants in her pants. Beatrix definitely preferred to be up on her feet than sitting still for us! We pulled out all the stops, singing and making animal noises but I’m not entirely sure she found us at all funny.

Beatrix, it's always a pleasure. Thankyou for choosing Blue Bean Photography as your milestone birthday photographer.

Mackenzie @ 14 days | New Born Photographer Measham https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/1/mackenzie-14-days-new-born-photographer-measham

Welcome to 2020 guys, Wow is it the new year already? I don't know if I've been doing this job too long or these babies are just getting cuter, because Mackenzie was a sweetheart from start to finish.

Mummy was able to firm up her session early after his arrival and they came to the studio when he was just 14 days old which is perfect for photographing newborns at their most settled.

It is very important to book your newborn session while still pregnant. For those that have only come across newborn photography after baby is already here, they will realise it can be tricky to find a professional newborn photographer in the midlands that has space within the ideal 2 week period of baby first arriving! Why are newborn photographers so booked up when baby is already here? I ask that clients pre-book their due date with us after their 12 and 20 week scan, this way we can be prepared for your newborn’s arrival and save them a spot during your due date month. It works better to pre-book because the ideal window to photograph baby is under 2 weeks old. If you wait to book until baby is here time goes by quickly and before you know it they are one month old and you are now looking for a photographer.

10 day old Frankie | Newborn Baby Photography Walsall https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/12/10-day-old-frankie-newborn-baby-photography-walsall

There is really nothing we love more as a studio than to see families come back to us year after year. Frankies mum came to visit us with her first born Kai a few years ago and ever since we have caught up every during our Christmas mini sessions, so it was lovely to see their family again.

I have been running the Blue Bean Photography studio now for over 9 years and the part that I enjoy the most is getting to know the families who come to have the key times in their lives photographed. It is such a privilege to be such a special part of each family’s life.

It always feels special to be selected by my families to share a baby photo shoot during the newborn phase and I'm always mindful and appreciative of this. I treat every baby session as a privilege, remembering our own experiences of parenting in the sleepless early days. Visitors to the studio have to put up with my ridiculous ramblings too as I coo over their new baby, I do it every time and make no apology! I have to say though, we always have a laugh and giggle though, this has to be the best job.

10 day old Gracie | Newborn Photographer Stoke on Trent https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/12/10-day-old-gracie-newborn-photographer-stoke-on-trent Another lovely returning family again came to me for their newborn photography session. Meet sweet baby Gracie who travelled to the studio for her newborn photos from Stoke on Trent. It’s such a pleasure to meet so many lovely families doing this job, and of course having cuddles with teeny tiny beautiful new humans!

She was a dream to work with and I love the colour combinations her mother and father choose. Here's a few of my favourites from this newborn session.

Mum-to-be Heather | Maternity Photographer Derby https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/12/13-day-old-willow-newborn-photographer-ashby-de-la-zouch

The very beautiful Heather came to my studio in December of 2019 for her maternity photography session. I was excited to learn that the style of portraits she wanted were exactly what I am passionate about shooting. Clean, classic, simple but beautiful images that show off what a special time this is in a new family's lives. Due early February 2020, and experiencing a really good first pregnancy, Heather wanted to capture this special time and create some beautiful photographs that last. Heather was 32 weeks pregnant at her session and so had a wonderful, round baby bump to show.

I always like to reassure clients, guiding them through what to expect from their session so they know how to pose, where to look, what to do next. Using simple posing, lighting and styling techniques to really define the body, enhance mum's features and of course have fun to get genuine smiles and expressions, you’ll be relaxed and find it an enjoyable experience as well as capturing some beautiful maternity portraits.

If you want to book a pregnancy and maternity photoshoot, please do get in contact with me. I look forward to meeting you.

Happy 1st Birthday Michael! | Baby Photographer Warwickshire https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/12/happy-1st-birthday-michael-baby-photographer-warwickshire

Today we had a return visit from Master Michael to celebrate his first birthday with some fun in the studio. I photographed this little lad as a newborn, and he was just as brilliant this time round as he was 11 months ago.

When you book a session with me I will send you my booking form, this is where I gather information about what kind of colour scheme you would like for your little ones shoot. I usually spend the first 5-10 minutes of the session talking to you the parent's. I find that with the little ones growing up (usually coming up to their 1st birthday), they're a lot more aware of the world and being thrown into a new situation can make them a little uneasy and a little clingy. I want the session to go well, so I allow them time to take a look at their surroundings and settle in before they're put in front of the camera.

I start the session with natural portraits. Sometimes clients bring their own clothes or I can supply them with something to wear depending on baby's size. I usually like to work with neutral block colour backdrops for these pictures, keeping props to a minimum and focus on capturing their facial expressions and personality.

11 day old Louie | Newborn Photographer Swadlincote https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/12/11-day-old-louie-newborn-photographer-swadlincote

Louie not only has the coolest name ever, but he is such a little character with the most awesome chubby cheeks and the sweetest face, we just had to share some images from his session. Daddy is a huge Disney fan so we had to capture a shot of his amazing arm artwork, I can't wait to see what tattoo he gets to represent his newest arrival!

I first discovered stylised newborn photography on pinterest about 9 years ago. I was so inspired and loved it all! The colours, the props, the poses, the cute little outfits, bonnets and headbands. I still do love most of it, but my tastes have certainly changed over the years.

Over the time that I have been a newborn photographer my tastes have evolved. I've gone full circle and come back to preferring the stripped back minimal beauty of focusing on baby.

14 day old Nyah | Newborn Photography Training https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/11/14-day-old-nyah-newborn-photography-training

Are you looking to be a newborn photographer? Do you know how important it is to be trained prior to handling a baby and trying to pose them for newborn photography?

At “Blue Bean Photography” I teach 1-1 mentoring and training to help give you a strong foundation to start your career as a newborn photographer. In our workshop I teach safe posing techniques, soothing and editing. It is so important to get this foundation prior to trying to photograph newborns as safety is the most important factor in newborn photography. Here, I trained Vika 1-1 mentoring and she loved learning about all the safe techniques and was surprised at how some poses were done. During 1-1 mentoring on newborn photography I teach things that took me over 8 years to learn! It is so important to give yourself this foundation before starting your career and putting newborn safety at risk.

My 1-1 newborn photography training days include little newborn models that I show you how to pose safely with and go through my posing flow to create a quicker and comfortable session for baby. My editing techniques are also taught and cater to saving time in your editing workflow so you can spend more time with family! It is quite a full day packed with information but crucial to beginning your career as a newborn photographer. My attendees feel ready to start their business and are informed on how to do poses safely and keep baby happy! My 1-1 mentoring ensures you get my full attention and can ask any question you like. I also provide ongoing support for my attendees after their workshop and as they start their new career in newborn photography.

I absolutely adore teaching newborn photography as it is my true passion in life and I adore meeting other photographers. To book your newborn training workshop please contact me at bluebeanphotographyuk@gmail.com

Skye @ 23 days young | Swadlincote Newborn Photography https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/10/skye-23-days-young-swadlincote-newborn-photography

Three week old Skye was one of my little October newborn models for one of my 1-2-1 training sessions this month. She started the morning off preferring to stay awake and keep an eye on what I was teaching my attendee throughout the morning. I just had to share some of these adorable photographs from our morning. An hour into the session she gave in to the zzzzzzzzzz's and was the perfect little model for us.

My newborn posing workshops are very relaxed and always adjusted to your level and needs as much as possible so you gain the most out of your training day. Newborn posing and post-processing workshops are available as 1-2-1, 2-2-1 or in small groups. During them you will be able to see how I deal with unsettled babies, will learn different poses and wrapping, how to use studio light, you will also learn different angles which significantly increase the number of the images in client's gallery. Whether you are just starting or looking to improve your skills my posing and editing workflow will be revealed without any secrets with all little tips and tricks and will help you to get your photography to another level.

Having a small number of attendees per workshop guarantees personal attention, more practical experience and a relaxed learning environment. We normally have at least one baby modelling at the workshops so you will have plenty of opportunities to photograph the newborns under my guidance and update your photography portfolio with new images too.

To book your newborn training workshop please contact me at bluebeanphotographyuk@gmail.com

Sophie 9 days of adorable | Newborn Photographer Derby https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/10/sophie-9-days-of-adorable-newborn-photographer-derby

This week I had the pleasure of meeting a gorgeous family who came to visit me from Derby, meet little Sophie at just 9 days old. This adorable little lady was much more interested in being awake for her time in the studio than having a good snooze, but we waited it out and she soon decided there was nothing much of interest to see with us adults, that her belly was full and she was snug as a bug.

Photographing newborns is a very specialised area with lots of safety implications. The reason Newborn photographers like to have their subjects so young Ideally between 6-16 days is predominantly down to brain age and muscle tone. Even if your newborn is born weeks early, even a specialist photographer may come across a few problems, curly poses are almost impossible as babies like to stretch out and their sleep patterns are very different and usually have changed after 3-4 weeks drastically from when baby first arrived.

I wrote a blog about safety in newborn photography. So feel free to read more here >>

Lennon @ 11 days old | New Born Photographer Burton upon Trent https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/10/lennon-11-days-new-born-photographer-burton-upon-trent

Just look at that beautiful face! This gorgeous baby boy from Burton upon Trent just lit up the studio when he visited us. Newborns are often very sleepy, so it was really nice to get some shots of Lennon with his daddy while he was awake. He was such a happy little beauty, so relaxed and smiling at the camera! He also dozed off at times, so I could take some equally adorable images of him sleeping softly. We love having such happy babies come and see us!

Elspeth and big brother Rowan | Newborn Baby Photographer Coventry https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/9/elspeth-and-big-brother-rowan-newborn-baby-photographer-coventry

Rowan came along with his new baby sister Elspeth for her first photos. This pair of beauties were amazing, Rowan took direction like a pro which made my job ten times easier!  

Over 35 years ago I walked into my reception class on the first day of school and met these pairs mummy for the first time. Elspeth is the absolute spitting image of her mummy, and Rowan is not only her physical double but his hilarious personality reminds me of that time Jules told me that if I drank water with red ants in it I would die. We would also race down the 'dell' to make helicopters from the maple tree then stick them on our noses.

......the fun never stops does it?

3 week old Mathew | Newborn Photographer in Church Gresley https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/9/3-week-old-mathew-newborn-photographer-in-church-gresley

Mathew from Church Gresley in South Derbyshire another beautiful little boy welcomed into the world this last month with cheeks for days!

What a beautiful baby boy, those lovely long fingers and lips that are so smooshable. I love that we used these green and wooden tones in his photo shoot, he looks so comfy.

Little Mathew was such a delight, he just rocked his photo shoot despite being 3 weeks old at the time of his session which is sometimes a little more difficult with an older newborn, but he was simply wonderful.

When’s the Best Time to Photograph Your Newborn Baby?

The first two weeks of a baby’s life are the best times to have a newborn photography session. During this time babies are very sleepy and will usually be settled through most of the photo shoot. Many babies often enjoy being curled up int the foetal position they were in in the womb, and this allows the photographer to capture lovely curled up poses, and all of the tiny details that make your baby unique.

After the first two weeks babies have usually started to uncurl, stretch out and are a lot more alert. They’re awake much more but not yet able to move, support their head or do things independently. If you’ve missed the newborn stage I recommend waiting a few months and booking your photo shoot for when your baby is around 6 months of age when they are sitting and becoming more independent.

This adorable little lady was much more interested in being awake for her time in the studio than having a good snooze, but we waited it out and she soon decided there was nothing much of interest to see with us adults, that her belly was full and she was snug as a bug. She was so sweet, with fair hair and pouty lips, I was thoroughly enjoying all the snuggles she gave me.

Thankyou so much for choosing Blue Bean Photography as your Derbyshire baby photographer, here are some of my favourite images from your newborn session.

Today we had a visit from Aubree and Pailsee to celebrate their first birthday with some fun. I photographed these twin girls as newborns, and they were just as perfect today as they were 12 months ago.

Photographing this hilarious pair was an absolute blast! The magic happens when they get well and truly stuck into the cake. Snapping away, taking photographs to record the fun...and the chaos of course!

Dilan 14 days perfect | Newborn Baby Photographer Mickleover https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/8/dilan-14-days-perfect-newborn-photography-mickleover

Welcome adorable baby Dilan from Mickleover! This sweet baby boy joined his mummy, daddy and big brother at his first newborn photo session.

The perfect morning in the studio for many newborn photographers is a sleepy baby. A properly chilled out, horizontally zonked, nothing will wake me milk-coma is music to their ears. Enter Dilan, officially the most laid back baby of my August newborn sessions. This sweet, gorgeous little guy did not so much as peep from under an eyelid the whole time I was with his family, and even when his big brother wanted to help get invloved. As a result we captured so many wonderful images of this family in a variety of “ natural poses”, all of which he gently wiggled, stretched, or otherwise manoeuvred into himself.

Thank you so much for letting me spend the morning with you and your wonderful family. I hope you love some of the images I captured of your morning at my studio.

8 month old Jaxon | Baby Photographer Swadlincote https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/8/8-month-old-jaxon-baby-photographer-swadlincote

100% obsessed with this little lad and his 'Little Sitter' gallery from his first photo shoot. 8 month old Jaxon was the smiliest little boy, full of giggles and cheekiness for me and I loved it, the whole way through the session he was smiling away and laughing at us all singing and making silly noises… or trying to, my awful 'trumpet' noises are notoriously bad! But hey, if it makes the babies laugh, then I’m more than happy to make a fool of myself and we got tons of cheeky sucky lipped smiles.

Here at Blue Bean Photography, sitter sessions are an absolute favourite, producing absolutely stunning images. So what exactly is a sitter session, and what makes it so special?

As the name suggests, sitter photo shoots mark the milestone of your baby being able to sit unaided.  Typically this happens at around 6 months, though for many babies this may be a while later, at perhaps eight months, or, for a select few, a little before the six month mark!  Sitter photo sessions cover this general age range, and involve a selection of photographs: some sitting, some crawling, and others using props. Typically photographers will have several setups ready for the session, and your baby can wear a few different outfits to give you a variety of images to suit your style and tastes.

Leann, 37 weeks pregnant | Maternity Photographer Burton-upon-trent https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/8/leann-37-weeks-pregnant-maternity-photographer-burton-upon-trent

Lovely Leann came to me last week wanting to feel empowered in the last few weeks of her pregnancy..... and my word, she showed us!

Maternity Photography has grown hugely in popularity over the years. It has definitely evolved in the last few years and it’s now one of my most popular sessions. I love pregnancy photography. If you are looking for Maternity Photography in Derbyshire that offers simple. beautiful, elegant maternity images then look no further.

I would love for all mummys-to-be to be able to celebrate the beauty of being pregnant with some stunning images of themselves. The best time to photograph a maternity shoot is around 32-37 weeks and it's my job to provide all the beautiful dresses and floaty fabric to make you feel fantastic.

A professional makeup artist can be added to your session at an additional cost, so why not be pampered and have your makeup done for your shoot? I look forward to capturing some beautiful and timeless images which you can show your child in years to come. It’s going to mean the world to them.

Henry 3 weeks wide awake! | Newborn Photographer Shelton Lock Derby https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/8/henry-3-weeks-wide-awake-newborn-photographer-shelton-lock-derby

7 year old Noah came along with his little brother Henry from Shelton Lock in Derby to have their first portraits taken together. Just look at Henrys' little smile when wrapped up with his brother, too cute. He has the most beautiful wide awake eyes which he refused to close throughout his session. We didn't mind though because I think it's safe to say, Henry is going to be a little heartbreaker when he's older.

14 day old Albie | Newborn Baby Photography Church Gresley https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/8/14-day-old-albie-newborn-baby-photography-church-gresley

Being a newborn photographer it's an incredible job, meeting these tiny souls every week and creating timeless images about them is just the best thing ever.

It was a blessing to photograph baby Finley and his family in my newborn studio in Caldwell, Swadlincote, they returned after visiting me for older brother Albies first birthday session. For a newborn photo shoot to achieve the best result a studio session is recommended. This allows me to control the light and temperate of the space. Before the session I always ask for about 3/4 of the favourite colours or setups parents would like me to use during their session, so once they are in the studio everything is prepared and we can start working without me setting up props whilst they wait.

The ideal age to do newborn portraits is 7-12 days and up to 21 days. Capturing your newborn within the first two weeks of life while they are still sleepy and curled up, can make all the difference in your newborn portraits. Most newborn sessions are booked many months in advance. However, given the necessarily fluid nature of scheduling newborn sessions, there may be spots available at short notice. While I recommend that newborn sessions take place during the first two weeks of life, I am always happy to photograph older newborns with the understanding that it may not be possible to achieve all the newborn poses in the same way as a younger newborn, since older newborns tend to be more alert and less flexible, but it doesn’t mean we can't get the cutest pictures ever.

2 week old Tabitha | Newborn Baby Photography Rosliston https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/8/2-week-old-tabitha-newborn-baby-photography-rosliston

Tiny Tabitha came to visit me in the studio at 2 weeks old having been born 2 weeks early we knew she was going to be a perfect client, showing us how she snoozed her way through her newborn session.

Summer is in full flow! It is actually going by like a flash for me, I feel like it was only just Easter, like we were only just relaxing *sigh*...

I am back to work after our annual holidays with a passion, getting out galleries and finding new, beautiful props for your sessions. I love high quality props, props that look stunning and will look so cute with your little one placed in them, on them, with them!

Charlotte 10 days of adorable | Newborn Photography Bromsgrove https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/7/charlotte-10-days-of-adorable-newborn-photography-birmingham

Meet little miss Charlotte from Bromsgrove, Worcestershire. 10 days old but 3 weeks early and with the sweetest personality! I photographed Jack as a newborn just 2 years ago and I knew this would be an easy session if Charlotte was anything like her gorgeous big brother. 

Mummy & Daddy wanted to go for a soft, girly feel to Charlottes newborn images. Calming, neutral and serene. Once you become a newborn photographer it is hard to even look a bucket and not imagine posing a sleepy newborn inside it...am I the only one?

As a midlands newborn photographer for the past 8 years, I saw this photography genre growing so much in recent years. Every parent now wants to have a lovely portrait of their new baby. They realise that this time is fleeting indeed: the baby won’t be the same in just a few weeks time. Babies do change a lot and parents actually tell me all the time “Oh you should have seen him/her last week, they are so different now”, “She is more alert now”, “His skin was so dry”… and so on.

I’m sure you will love some photos like these too, right?

Have a look at my portfolio to see more of my work. I’ll be delighted to create some beautiful memories for your family as well.

George 10 days new | Newborn Photographer Solihull https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/7/george-10-days-new-newborn-photographer-solihull

I also got to hang out with this little one this week, I've been photographing his lovely family now since his big sister Scarlett was a newborn herself. Meet 10 day old George a gorgeous chunky monkey who came from Solihull. And what a personality, at first he was keen to stay wide awake and take in all of the sounds in the studio, then he zonked out, curled and posed himself into the most amazing positions!

Albie & Scarlet | Newborn Photography Training Birmingham & Derby https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/7/albie-scarlet-newborn-photography-training-birmingham-derby

Newborn models Albie and Scarlet joined me for a day of newborn photography training in the studio this month. I had the pleasure of teaching a fellow photographer the art of newborn posing and editing.

Are you looking to be a newborn photographer? Do you know how important it is to be trained prior to handling a baby and trying to pose them for newborn photography?

At Blue Bean Photography I teach 1-2-1 mentoring and training to help give you a strong foundation to start your career as a newborn photographer. In my workshop I teach safe posing techniques, soothing and editing. It is so important to get this foundation prior to trying to photograph newborns as safety is the most important factor in newborn photography. Here, I trained Jodie 1-2-1 mentoring and she loved learning about all the safe techniques and was surprised at how some poses were done. During our training in newborn photography, I teach things that took me over 8 years to learn! It is so important to give yourself this foundation before starting your career and putting newborn safety at the forefront.

5 week old Felix | Newborn photography in the Donisthorpe Leicestershire https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/7/5-week-old-felix-newborn-photography-in-the-donisthorpe-leicestershire

Capturing these first few weeks of a newborn baby's life is truly something special. It’s amazing how tiny they are and how much they start changing from day one! Look at how tiny Felix looks in his parents arms!

Felix and his family came to me at 5 weeks of age but born 1 month early. This was a planned shoot because Felix's big brother was also photographed at 5 weeks of age and his mummy wanted to have a comparison of images to show her boys when they were older, isn't that a sweet idea?

Bea turns one! | Baby Photography Etwall Derbyshire https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/7/bea-turns-one-baby-photography-etwall-derbyshire

One of the best parts of my job as a photographer, is that I get to capture milestones in my client’s lives.  A first birthday session is always a blast as I get to see how my clients have grown! Add confetti-filled balloons, and you have the makings of a messy, glittery but super fun session!  I just love first birthday photography sessions!

It seems like only yesterday that I captured little Miss Bea’s newborn photos. I adore seeing little ones growing into their personalities, we had a super fun session starting off with the cutest of little rompers!  What’s a photo shoot without bubbles and a bath!?!

1 week old Mable | Newborn Photographer Birmingham https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/6/1-week-old-mable-newborn-photographer-birmingham Please meet sweet baby Mable!! First of all, I am absolutely obsessed with her name and as equally obsessed with this sweet girl! She was absolutely precious, snuggling and so very cuddly during our session - it was so hard to stop taking photographs of this gorgeous girl. In planning out the details for their session, Mummy, knew she wanted to incorporate natural non fussy colours and setups so we kept it all beautifully neutral..

Mable came for her first set of photographs at just 10 days old. This little lady was absolutely brilliant during her newborn session, which resulted in some beautiful pretty images as you'll see below, that was until she decided enough was enough and she was going to stay awake for the final hour of her session, just look at those big wide awake eyes!. Also, look at that hair!!! How amazing is that!? Every photographer's dream child.

Here is a small selection of images from her newborn photo shoot.

Jasmine turns 7 Months! | Baby Sitter Photography Tamworth https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/6/jasmine-turns-one-baby-birthday-photography-tamworth

Last week sweet Jasmine from Tamworth celebrated sitting all on her own with a milestone session at the Blue Bean studio, we went for classic and organic styling for her photoshoot, and these neutral tones worked wonderfully for such a happy little girl.

What is a sitter session? A sitter session is a session between the ages of 6-10 months old. This is usually the time when the child can safely sit on their own. It is my second favourite type of session. Usually, the child is content sitting and being the centre of attention. Jasmine did not disappoint. She was like a living baby doll. She smiled and laughed and had amazing eye contact with me and of course her daddy! It was a very fun session and I hope mum and dad cherish these beautiful images of their beautiful little girl!

12 day old Harry | Newborn baby photography Coton-in-the-Elms https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/6/harry-12-days-new-newborn-baby-photography-coton-in-the-elms

I have some more beautiful Derbyshire Newborn Photography on the blog for you today, this time with 12 day old baby Harry and his very proud big brother Edward from Coton-in-the-Elms in South Derbyshire, plus his parents of course! The last time I saw Edward was three years ago at his own newborn session, so it was lovely to see how much he had grown!

I love photographing newborn babies and it’s always so much fun when there are older children involved. I love to see the interactions between the siblings as they get to know their new playmate. Edward was so tender with his little brother, giving him gentle kisses and loving snuggles. It’s so interesting how the dynamics develop and how, even very young children, are so gentle with tiny babies.

I recommend you contact me well before your due date, where possible, to book your Newborn Photography Session. We’ll book in a provisional date based around your due date initially, and then adjust the booking date as necessary when the time comes! The ideal time for a newborn photo shoot is around 1-3 weeks of age so this usually works well considering most babies are a little late.

Rudy 12 days new | Northampton Newborn Photographer https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/6/rudy-northampton-newborn-photographer

Handsome Roman came back to the studio, this time bringing along his new baby brother Rudy with him! The developing bond between siblings and newborns is just too adorable and remains one of my favourite things to photograph in a session. The love between these two brothers already at this young age is breathtaking, such a beautiful moment.

Sometimes getting a toddler or young child to engage with their newborn sibling often takes a few ticks and more than a little cunning, but that wasn't the case on this day, we snapped these family and sibling shots in less than 30 minutes! With a bit of careful quiet encouragement with older brother Roman, we soon had the brothers lying next to each other and so happy to snuggle up.

As is often the way, once their faces were close, Roman became fascinated by his younger brother. It's so special to see moments like these, and I love capturing them for parents.

10 day old Oscar | Nuneaton baby photos https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/6/10-day-old-oscar-nuneaton-baby-photos

To me, there really is nothing more precious than the bond between siblings, and when Oscar came to the studio this month with his big sister and brother, it couldn't be more apparent.

Yes, children of a certain age often bicker and fight. But deep down, siblings have a wonderful and unique bond. I am close to my own brother and wish I had more photographs of us together. Which is why I absolutely adore getting the opportunity to photograph brothers and sisters. Sibling sessions are a great opportunity to capture amazing images of your family. Capturing those important memories that you’ll look back on in years to come.

I often get clients who are baffled that newborns need to be photographed under 3 weeks old. To them it seems odd, too soon or like torture after just having a new baby. While it can be hard to leave the house just after having a baby, I assure you it is for good reason. In order to get all the gorgeous images of babies delicately posed, sleeping in buckets or curled up in a womb-like pose, we need to do the photography session when baby is under 21 days old. This ensures that we get those beautiful images you see on my website. Why under 3 weeks old?

Your newborn has just emerged into a scary new world after spending 9 months curled up in the womb with warmth, motion and lots of noise inside. It was a super comfy place! When a newborn is first born they sleep many hours, I often have clients tell me about their struggles to wake their newborn when they are trying to feed them! Newborn sleep about 16- 18 hours a day! I often have dads ask me, “Why do they need to be asleep? Can’t you just photograph them awake?” I always try to get some awake shots of baby but there isn’t much variety we can get before baby gets antsy and starts crying. Their focus is a bit off when they are newborns so very rarely do you get shots of baby looking directly at the camera. The reason we photograph baby asleep is primarily for safety reasons, I would never put an awake baby in a bucket or in a pose. Newborns can be very strong and can easily kick themselves off something and baby must be safely supported at all times. While sleeping baby is flexible and happy, so we can put them in cute positions and safely spot them for photographs.

After three weeks I find it harder to get the more complex poses and colic soon begins. A session under two weeks old is generally less stressful for everyone so we can get beautiful images of baby! During a session I do everything (except feed baby of course) so parents get a chance to relax!

This beautiful baby girl came to see me when she was 11 days old, meet Jessie, the most wide awake little I've had in the studio for a long time!

We began the session on the beanbag, where she was awake for a little while before falling asleep where we wrapped her and took some gorgeous crate shots. She was most content though as you can see in her daddys hands, just look at those beautiful eyes.

Below are a few favourites from our newborn photography session together. Thank you for choosing Blue Bean Photography as your Midlands Newborn Photographer.

Zacharaiah @ 6 days | Newborn Photographer Derby https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/5/zacharaiah-6-days-newborn-photographer-derby

I’m delighted to share some photos of a beautiful baby boy who was just 6 days old when I took his newborn photos at my studio. Meet Zacharaiah, a little superstar in the making! He was a star and let me put him in most poses. He kept having a little peep to see what all the fuss was about but slept through most of his session without stirring.

Are you pregnant and wondering when the best time is to book your newborn Photography session? Don’t worry, even though this is a very common thing to think about, it’s a question that worries people and they tend to leave it until after the birth and then struggle to book a photographer.

As a newborn photographer I make room on my calendar by scheduling only one or two newborn sessions per week. A newborn photo shoot is often the only shoot I will arrange for that particular day. If your baby comes a little bit early or is slightly overdue don’t worry, only taking 3-4 newborn bookings a week allows me room to move things around in order to guarantee your booking.

I recommend having your newborn session within the first 21 days of your little one being born. There are a few reasons for this, they are a lot more sleepy in those first few weeks of life, they are still very curly from being tucked up inside and settle better into the natural position they were in before they made their big arrival into the world.

Alexander | Newborn Photographer Coventry https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/4/alexander-newborn-photographer-coventry A few weeks back I met 1 week old Alexander who came with mummy and daddy to see me from Coventry for his very first mini photo session, he was a sleepy superstar from start to finish! I'm a sucker for 'sleepy poses', you should all know that by now and this little man obliged willingly. Alexander is little brother to Erin who also came to see me in the studio as a newborn, so it was lovely to meet the family again after so long...even though we did see each other the very next week in Clarks shoes in Leamington, what are the chances!?

Isaac just melted my heart with his sweetness. Congrats again guys!

12 day old Muhammad | Newborn Baby Photography Walsall https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/4/12-day-old-muhammad-newborn-baby-photography-walsall

Meet Muhammad, another little squish from one of Aprils many newborn sessions ~ 12 days old and totally in the wide awake club, he's forgiven just for that fuzzy hair alone.

We kept it simple in the studio for Muhammads session, mum had been following Blue Bean Photography for a few years over on Instagram so she knew what she wanted from her little boys session.

It always feels special to be selected by my families to share a baby photo shoot during the newborn phase and I'm always mindful and appreciative of this. I treat every baby session as a privilege, remembering our own experiences of parenting in the sleepless early days. Visitors to the studio have to put up with my ridiculous ramblings too as I coo over their new baby, I do it every time and make no apology!

I had the pleasure of photographing this young lady again in my studio recently. Ruby's mum wanted some fine art portrait photography which really captures this little girl's sweet personality. We had lots of fun trying on the different outfits that she had brought with and also trying on the moral crowns that I have on a rail in my studio for little ones to use. I just love the portraits we got at Rubys session!

Frankie @ 8 days | Newborn Baby Photography Sutton Coldfield https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/4/frankie-8-days-newborn-baby-photography-sutton-coldfield

Meet Frankie and his family from Sutton Coldfield in Birmingham, they all came to the studio last month for Frankies first portraits. 

He was a super little client! And after lots of top ups of milk, cuddles and patience he fell into a deep sleep for a little while to get some of those sleepy posed shots parents all love. Mum chose a classic, relaxed style for their images with browns, greys, blues and neutrals. This is my signature style and the one that my newborn clients specifically book me for - it's a beautifully natural style and doesn’t date.

Being a newborn and family photographer I feel privileged to be a part of baby’s story in his/her first few days of life, capturing all of the tiny newborn details and also the connections between parents and sibling as they get to know their new arrival.

Isabella, 8 days perfect | Newborn Photographer Derby https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/4/isabella-8-days-perfect-newborn-photographer-derby

This scrumptious little face graced my studio the other day and melted my heart with her big beautiful eyes and expressions. We started off with photos of Isabella on my beanbag and then continued to sleep soundly with her parents for her family photos. Apart from being hungry and needing a feed, she was pretty chilled. I love her beautiful little facial expressions and bed hair :) Such a gorgeous little squish! I adore being able to get photos of the close cuddles and capturing those moments, which are such a part of life with a newborn.

Lois 2 weeks new | Newborn Photos Bedworth https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/4/lois-2-weeks-new-newborn-photos-bedworth

It was such a pleasure to photograph little Lois and her big brother Nico from Bedworth in Warwickshire at their photo shoot. I was contacted by their mummy and daddy after their session was bought for them as a gift. They didn't want to miss out on documenting such a special time in their families lives. This gorgeous dark haired and chubby-cheeked little lady was so placid and well behaved, she slept soundly throughout her session.

Gosh I love newborns. They are pure, innocent and incredibly beautiful. They are the true miracles of life. Thanks to all of you parents who share your bundle of joy with me.
Because this magical stage of life passes in the blink of an eye, newborn portraits are captured as early as possible while your little one is still sleepy and content. During this time they sleep more soundly and curl up more easily into adorable poses. However, timings really depend on you and your baby, so just give me a ring to discuss the best time for your session.

Natasha 8 Months Pregnant | Maternity Photography Derby https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/4/natasha-8-months-pregnant-maternity-photography-derby

My assistant Kerry I had a wonderful morning in the studio with Natasha last month she's such a timeless beauty. I just knew we’d have a fun shoot, we got along fab from the get-go and had such a giggle taking her maternity photos.

I adore maternity photography. There is something about capturing a woman in a portrait when she may be feeling less than the amazing human being she is and showing her how truly powerful she is. I see so many different mothers to be, first time and second time.. and so on. I always have a good conversation about their pregnancies, with over 8 years in this industry I have a deep understanding and knowledge about pregnancy and birth, so I find it easy to talk about. This helps me to bond with mummy and build up a relationship throughout the maternity session.

When the very beautiful Natasha approached me wanting to capture her pregnancy just 10 days before having her little boy, we spoke about how to create her portraits, she knew what she had in mind before arriving to the studio.

Pregnancy sessions are well worth booking, regardless of size, glamour or confidence, I promise I’ll make you feel at ease and we’ll have a blast taking your maternity portraits.

Baby Teddy, 10 days old | Photographer Tamworth Staffordshire https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/3/baby-teddy-10-days-old-photographer-tamworth-staffordshire

Keeping it simple in the studio. I met such a sweet baby boy last week 10 day old Teddy and his amazing little smile! Teddy came along to the studio from Tamworth in Staffordshire.

It always feels special to be selected by my families to share a baby photo shoot during the newborn phase and I'm always mindful and appreciative of this. I treat every baby session as a privilege, remembering our own experiences of parenting in the sleepless early days. Visitors to the studio have to put up with my ridiculous ramblings too as I coo over their new baby, I do it every time and make no apology!

This handsome little man slept soundly throughout his shoot, captivating us with his chilled out temperament and windy smirks. It’s a rewarding feeling to work with a newborn baby, and as they’re so unaware of their setting we ensure they are warm, safe, positioned comfortably and respectfully so their images cause no embarrassment as they grow up.

10 day old Livvie | Baby Photographer Kenilworth Warwickshire https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/3/10-day-old-livvie-baby-photographer-kenilworth-warwickshire

Sweet little Livvie was a super star for her newborn photo session. She was joined by her lovely parents for her newborn session and then later with her big brothers for their family session at my South Derbyshire photography studio.

It’s such a small world, Livvies mum and I used to go to school together so it was great to reminisce and talk about how our lives have changed in the last (gulp) 22 years :-) 

I loved every single thing about this babys photo shoot, Livvie slept beautifully and was such a good girl for me, she gave me the biggest smile when she was posed in the heart bowl and it was pure perfection & she even peeped her eyes open for me right at the end of the session to have a little look at who I was and what I was up to. Her mama chose the prettiest mix of soft blush and lilac tones, floral halos and soft neutrals… resulting in a beautiful classical look to this pretty gallery.

We captured some beautiful images. I hope to see this lovely family another time soon. Here are some photos from their gallery to enjoy!

1st year milestone session for Lara! | Baby Photographer Chesterfield https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/3/1st-year-milestone-session-for-lara-baby-photographer-chesterfield

This little beauty came back for her first birthday session this month. Lara from Chesterfield in North Derbyshire first visited the studio a year ago as a tiny preemie, my word she's grown! Since when was this little lady turning one? Oh my gosh, it feels like only 2 minutes ago she was a newborn in our studio let alone coming to see us for her birthday portraits.

It's been so lovely to share and capture Lara's first year. It just goes to show how much they change and grow in such a short period of time and why every moment is precious. It's an honour to capture these special moments in their lives and help create those memories that last a lifetime. The images I create help keep that memory alive for years and years to come.

Rita and big sister Antoni | Newborn Baby Photography Derby https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/3/rita-and-big-sister-antoni-newborn-baby-photography-derby

Two year old Antoni from Derby came back to the studio with his new baby sister, 12 day old Rita for her own first photos ~ This pair were amazing, Antoni took direction like a pro which made my job ten times easier!  

I never envy parents having to choose their images from their galleries. We capture such a range of images during any shoot and I know from photographing my own children just how hard it is to choose what to display. After all, we only have so much wall space, right?

How on earth Joanna and Maciej are going to choose which images of their duo to go on the wall, I have no idea! These cheeky, funny siblings were adorable during their session! Antoni loved posing for the camera, and was great and looking after little Rita and showing her off! And this 12 day old baby was the most delightful little girl, resulting in heaps of gorgeous images from her session!

Here are just a few.

Ada @ 9 days | New Born Photographer Swadlincote https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/3/layla-12-days-new-born-photographer-swadlincote

I don't know if I've been doing this job too long or these babies are just getting sweeter! I had a postponement on a newborn last month who was still a little jaundiced so I got to play with this adorable little lady instead! Ada's mama was referred to me by her sister who has been to see me with her own little one over the years. This little girl was so well behaved and slept through her whole session, however, she did have an exhausting night keeping his mother & father up all through the twilight hours (lucky me!). I always gloat about how babies have the best eye lashes, hair and skin, but seriously, Ada had skipped over having baby acne completely and had the most perfect complexion!

Mummys gorgeous makeup was carried out by Chloe Simone MUA & Aesthetician a very talented make up artist who's studio is just in the next lane to our photography studio at Beehive Farm Woodland Lakes, also home to the ever popular and amazing Honeypot Tea rooms. If you follow our Instagram account @bluebeanphotography, you'll often find me and my clients post session devouring one of Sonjas amazing baked creations!

Isla 4 weeks of gorgeous | Newborn Photography Coventry https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/3/Isla-4-weeks-new-newborn

Isla came to the studio with her mummy and daddy this March. She was simply adorable, such perfect little features and softly smiling from the moment I laid eyes on her – I knew we were going to get on! On booking whilst running through what colours her mum wanted me to incorporate she told me she loved dusky pinks and neutrals, I loved having this family in the studio and Isla was just so sweet and precious, it was a dream photographing her and capturing these early memories for her family.

Thank you for choosing Blue Bean Photography as your Newborn Photographer in South Derbyshire, it was so so lovely seeing you all.

Here are a few favourites from our newborn photography session together, I hope they bring a smile to your day.

Morgen 10 days old | Newborn Photographer Rosliston https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/3/morgen-10-days-old-newborn-photographer-rosliston

Morgen's daddy contacted me last month to see if I had any available slots in the studio diary, usually being one of the busiest time of year we get fully booked for Spring late in the Autumn, however we managed to squeeze this little sweetheart in for an early morning mini session as they only lived a road away from the Caldwell studio in Rosliston. Morgen's parents asked for completely neutral and simple shots without outfits or hats which are my absolute favourite to shoot. I love to keep it simple and concentrate purely on photographing baby.

Morgen was so good at sleeping and posing and completely rocked her session in just an hour and a half. Trying to cut her beautiful gallery down to just 14 images for this blog post was purely impossible as I love them all!

Thank you for choosing Blue Bean Photography as your Midlands Baby Photographer.

Look who turned one this week! Happy birthday jolly little Jamie from Church Gresley near Swadlincote ~ wishing you an amazing first birthday with your family.

Jamie's crafty mummy created this amazing milestone chalkboard that was used at their wedding, and she also made the birthday bunting especially for her little lads shoot today, amazing right? It's been so lovely to share and capture Jamies first year since birth. It just goes to show how much they change and grow in such a short period of time and why every moment is precious. It's an honour to capture these special moments in their lives and help create those memories that last a lifetime. The images I create help keep that memory alive for years and years to come.

10 day old Jaxon | Newborn Photographer Duffield https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/2/10-day-old-jaxon-newborn-photographer-duffield

Master Jaxon came to the studio from Duffield near Matlock for his baby photo shoot when he was just 10 days old. I had met Jaxons parents previously at his big sister Mylas newborn session just two years ago, so it was lovely to catch up with familiar faces and to see how much Myla had grown!

Jaxon was just absolutely adorable. I have a feeling that he's going to be a very active little one because even in a deep sleep he was a little wriggler, giving mummy all the smiles with his stretchy toes and hands while he had a snooze in the studio.

I feel so very lucky to do what I do for a living. It’s such a privilege to be invited into a new family’s life and to photograph their new arrival. Often when new parents come for their newborn photo session it’s the first time that they’ve left the house since their baby arrived. It’s quite an emotional time, and so I make sure that my studio is welcoming, calm and peaceful. Parents often comment on how relaxing they find the whole experience.

I love being able to create beautiful baby portraits like this for my clients. Photographs like this stand the test of time and can become family heirlooms. If you would like to book a photo session for your newborn or your older baby click here to send me a message.

Henry @ 13 days new | Newborn Photographer Little Eaton https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/2/henry-13-days-new-newborn-photographer-little-eaton

Keeping it simple in the studio for Henrys session. I met this sweet baby boy last week, 13 day old Henry and his amazing fluffy hair came along to the studio from Little Eaton in Derby for his first set of photos. 

Henry was a superstar throughout his session and I think his parents really enjoyed seeing how peaceful he was in various poses and outfits! Like all babies, he especially enjoyed being wrapped up and posed on the snuggling blankets. 

Check out the rest of his photographs and please feel free to leave a comment and share this blog to show your love!

Why are newborn photography sessions carried out when baby is under 2 weeks old? https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/2/why-are-newborn-photography-sessions-carried-out-when-baby-is-under-2-weeks-old

I often get clients who are baffled that newborns need to be photographed under two weeks old. To them it seems odd, or too soon after just having a new baby. While it can be hard to leave the house just after having a baby, I assure you it is for good reason. In order to get all the gorgeous images of babies delicately posed, sleeping in buckets or curled up in a womb-like pose, we need to shoot the photography session when baby is between 5-21 days of age. This ensures that we get those beautiful images you see on my website.

Your newborn has just emerged into a scary new world after spending 9 months curled up in the womb with warmth, motion and lots of noise inside. It was a super comfy place! When a newborn is first born they sleep many hours, I often have clients tell me about their struggles to wake their newborn when they are trying to feed them! Newborn sleep about 18 hours a day! I often have parents ask me, “Why do they need to be asleep? Can’t you just photograph them awake?” I always try to get some awake shots of baby but there isn’t much variety we can get before baby gets antsy and starts crying. Their focus is a bit off when they are newborns so very rarely do you get shots of baby looking directly at the camera. The reason we photograph baby asleep is primarily for safety reasons, I would never put an awake baby in a bucket or in a pose. While sleeping, baby is flexible, relaxed and happy so I am able to pose them into cute positions and safely spot them for photographs.

After three weeks I find it harder to get the more complex poses as their little bones begin to firm up and colic soon begins, baby acne creeps in and they become more awake. A session under two weeks old is generally less stressful for everyone so we can get beautiful images of baby. During a session I do everything except feed baby of course, so parents get a chance to kick back and relax!

When baby is under two weeks old they are very sleepy as long as they are warm and have a full tummy. This helps us to get the gorgeous bucket poses, nude poses and adorable swaddled images. Newborn babies love rides in the car as they lull them to sleep so long car rides and travelling aren’t a problem at all. Once you get to my studio you are able to feed baby and my studio is carefully planned out to accommodate newborns by being very warm and having all the supplies you may need.

What if my baby won't settle for their newborn photoshoot? https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/2/what-if-my-newborn-doesnt-settle-for-their-photoshoot

One of the most common fears I hear from parents before they book a newborn shoot is "What if my baby won't settle during the session?". Parents worry that their baby will choose the day of their photos to be the most unsettled, not sleep and turn into 'the one' baby who doesn't want to play ball for their photos. Mums and dads also feel that it is their responsibility to ensure that their baby is fast asleep for the session and the thought of this puts them off booking, meaning they miss out on capturing such a special time. If this is you then I hope to be able to reassure you that there is no need to worry. 

I can understand why parents may feel this, because they don't know what to expect from a session as they've never had one before. They are just getting to used to life at home with a newborn baby who cries, maybe has colic or reflux and only sleeps when cuddled in someone's arms. They cannot imagine how I am going to manage to get those sleepy curly images that newborn photographers 'show off' online. They think all these babies look settled, angelic and very sleepy, therefore parents believe that this happens to every baby naturally and therefore the expectation that their baby has to do the same makes them very anxious. 

The truth is, not every baby is perfect for the duration of their shoot, they are newborns after all, some will fuss, be more sensitive to me touching and moving them, some will wee and poo their way through the session, show a little defiance by fighting their sleep. Whatever I am presented with it is my job to settle them, work with them and use my training and years of experience to achieve a lovely gallery of images. 

When you book a newborn photo shoot with me, you are paying me to do so much more than just photograph your newborn baby. You are paying me and trusting me, as an experienced expert to settle, soothe and safely pose your newborn baby and then photograph them. All you need to do is sit, relax and catch up on some well-deserved rest and let me do all the work. 

I have been specialising in posing newborns for over 8 years now and I have settled well over 800 babies in this time. Over the years I have understood the ideal times and age to work with a baby , so ensuring an effective session starts from the point of scheduling your session date. I will also provide a link to a detailed preparation guide which asks parents to do a few simple things with their baby, before the session which will also make a huge difference on the morning of your session. Most importantly, due to my experience, I know many tricks and tips for getting a baby settled and keeping them sleepy. My experience has also made me resilient to unsettled and fussy moments, parents often leave their shoot with some tips themselves and often message me after the session to tell me how valuable my advice was. 

It also helps that I am a Mummy to 3 little ones and therefore my own experiences of them as babies are still quite fresh. So, if this has been worrying you, then I hope this helps to reassure you. Take a look at the many reviews on my website and Facebook page too and see what other parents have said as this may also help to confirm that your baby is in safe hands and you will find the session nothing but a positive experience.

12 day old Gorgeous George | Newborn Baby Photos Warwickshire https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/2/12-day-old-gorgeous-george-newborn-baby-photos-warwickshire

George from Leamington Spa in Warwickshire came to visit me for his first photos this February, can't we just take a moment and appreciate those cheeks!!

At just 12 days old we didn't have to work hard to get him to have a nap, George was very much obliging and slept soundly throughout all of the wrapping and moving from prop to pose. in fact I'm certain we only saw him open his eyes once.

As I’m sure many new parents are aware, its not always easy to get a newborn to sleep so in our shorter sessions quite often we have to photograph an awake baby and capture those wide-eyed moments. In full packaged sessions, it can take around 3 hours to achieve a full gallery of sleep shots and poses but in either case they are images to be cherished for years to come.

2 week old Pailsey | Newborn Photographer Draycott https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/2/2-week-old-pailsey-newborn-photographer-draycott

Little Paisley came to the studio from Draycott in Derby for her baby photo shoot when she was just 14 days old. When it came to Paisleys session I knew that mum would love all things pink and pastel so had the perfect setups in mind. Paisley was amazing throughout her whole shoot and I’m sure you’ll all agree with me she’s is a little bundle of gorgeousness!

As an experienced professional newborn photographer, safety is always at the forefront of what I do. As well as ensuring your images are timeless and stunning, it is also my duty to ensure your baby is comfortable and safe during the whole experience at their newborn photo shoot.

Through my experience and extensive training I’ve learned different methods and techniques used to soothe and calm your baby to ensure the session is as relaxing as possible. I’ve also learnt to look out for things such as circulation, breathing, flexibility and temperature to name a few. Whilst all of the poses are completely safe and comfortable for baby there are things that have to be monitored and not all babies will go in to all poses. This is why it’s essential you do your homework and choose a professional photographer who specialises in newborn photography. Check out their portfolio, what experience do they have? Have they had any hands on training? Are they insured? This is just a few of the things you should start out researching before you choose the photographer that’s right for you.

A lot of the posing is very natural for babies and is similar to how they were curled up in your tummy. This is the reason we photograph babies as soon as possible as they love being tucked and curled similar to how they were in the womb. There are some poses that are advanced and require specific skills and knowledge to carry out. One in particular is what’s known as the ‘froggy‘ or the 'head in hands' pose as pictured and modelled by the beautiful baby Paisley below. It’s an adorable pose where the baby has his/her head resting on their hands with their little feet by their side. It shows off the baby’s face and cute little toes peeking perfectly!

As a professional photographer it is my responsibility to ensure your baby is safe at all times when in my care. I can tell if a baby will go in to a pose or not, nothing is forced or attempted if baby is not happy. All of my sessions are completely baby led which means we go at the babies pace and if we need to stop for hugs or feeds that’s what we do.

9 day old Rowan | Newborn Photographer Derby https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/2/9-day-old-rowan-newborn-photographer-derby

Welcome to the world Rowan from Derby, another beautiful 9 day old little boy who arrived into the world this last month with the most beautiful skin!

For Rowans newborn photoshoot, his parents chose navy and neutral tones for the session wanting to include big brother Findlay in their photos meant that we had to shoot fast before Findlay decided that he just wanted to play with the studio toys! The result is absolutely beautiful and the colour palette was perfect for this time of year. Rowan was an absolute darling for his baby photo session with me, he was booked in for one of our shorter gold collection sessions but slept so so well for the entire 2 hours and totally rocked out all his poses like a pro.

Im so pleased her parents also chose to have some images taken with their brand new baby boy, I know when you’re exhausted and tired literally the last thing you want to do is step in front of the camera, but you’d never know these parents were up all night with little one. They look stunning and was such a relaxed family!

Thank you so much for choosing Blue Bean Photography as your Derby baby photographer, here are just some of my favourite images from your newborn photography session with me.

Ablie, 12 days old | Little Aston Newborn Photography https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/1/ablie-12-days-old-little-aston-newborn-photography

Remember gorgeous mummy-to-be Laura from her maternity session a few weeks ago? Well her perfect bump finally made his arrival, welcome baby Albie to the blog! 

One of the sweetest parts of the session was when his big brother Oscar joined us to take special sibling photographs. He was great! Perfectly behaved and what a good listener (with 3 kids of my own, I definitely appreciate a good listener). :) He gave me great smiles, and willingly snuggled into his baby brother, allowing me to capture some beautiful images of the brothers together.  I love how the galley came out!

Oscars own newborn session was 3.5 years ago, and looking back at his newborn images, don't you think these boys look identical?

3 week old Alfie | Sutton Coldfield Newborn Photographer https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/1/3-week-old-alfie-sutton-coldfield-newborn-photographer

Baby Alfie came to visit the studio this month a little earlier than expected, arriving into the world 6 weeks early at 34 weeks gestation, so I managed to meet his gorgeous family 3 weeks early! The developing bond between siblings and newborns is just too adorable and remains one of my favourite things to photograph in a session. The love between these two brothers already at this young age is breathtaking, such a beautiful moment.

Sometimes getting a toddler or young child to engage with their newborn sibling often takes a few ticks and more than a little cunning, but that wasn't the case on this day, we snapped these family and sibling shots in less than 30 minutes! With a bit of careful quiet encouragement with older brother George, we soon had the brothers lying next to each other and so happy to snuggle up.

As is often the way, once their faces were close, George became fascinated by his younger brother. It's so special to see moments like these, and I love capturing them for parents.

Finn 19 days new | Newborn Baby Photographer Swadlincote https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/1/finn-19-days-new-newborn-baby-photographer-swadlincote

This sweet little man came to see me this week for his newborn mini photo session from around the corner in Church Gresley. Handsome Finn at just over 2 weeks old and weighing it at almost 9.5lbs was wide awake for most of his first photos, but rocked his session from start to finish, just look at those eyes, he wasn't planning on missing a trick!

Baby Joshua | Newborn Photography Warwickshire https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/1/baby-joshua-newborn-photography-warwickshire

Meet Joshua from just down the road in Hurley in North Warwickshire, Joshua came with his mum and dad to the studio last month for his first portraits.

He definitely fought sleep as best he could! But after lots of top ups of milk, cuddles and patience he eventually fell to sleep for a little while to get some sleepy posed shots. Mum chose a classic, relaxed style for their images with blues, creams and neutrals. This is my signature style and the one that my newborn clients specifically book me for - its so beautifully natural and doesn’t date.

Being a newborn and family photographer I feel privileged to be a part of baby’s story in his/her first few days of life, capturing all of the tiny newborn details and also the connections between parents and sibling as they get to know their new arrival.

10 day old Michael | North Warwickshire Baby Photographer https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/1/10-day-old-michael-north-warwickshire-baby-photographer

Proud big brother James came back to the studio this week with 10 day old baby Michael from Bentley in Warwickshire for this gorgeous sibling session at Blue Bean Photography, they are such a handsome pair of beauts, and James loved prodding his little brother with loving pokes but mum had to be on hand close by as he got bored of his little bro pretty quickly. I remember James' own newborn session like it was yesterday and it was like seeing double when his little brother appeared on the morning of their session!

Rather than expecting a toddler to be good at holding their little baby brother or sister (even though they are still almost babies themselves), or expect them to be sitting up with good posture and safely staying where you place them, my preference is to photograph toddler siblings on their backs. Posing them on their back keeps everyone in a safe place and facing the camera and removes the responsibility of the older child having to hold the baby. I use this trick in every sibling session, I find there are so many variations to these poses and parents just adore them.
