How to prepare for your Maternity Photography Session 

Congratulations on your pregnancy! As you prepare for your little one to enter the world and join your family, your to-do list is probably a mile long. Having a professional maternity session may seem like just another item to add to your list, but a maternity shoot can be a perfect time to remind you of the power and beauty of your body during your pregnancy journey.  You deserve to have this incredible moment in your life captured, to celebrate with your partner and family the joy of a new baby entering your life. If you’ve never had a maternity session before, you may not know how to prepare or what to expect. That’s why I've put together this handy guide to everything you need to know in order to make the most from your photo session.

Schedule your session early in pregnancy

The earlier you book your session, the better. Your best bet is to book with me for your maternity session is after your 20 week scan, around the time you find out the sex of your baby, it’s important to book as early as possible to make sure I will have availability. 

Plan to book your photo shoot for the third trimester 

The best time to take your photos is early in your third trimester, between 28 and 36 weeks. At this point, your bump will be showing well and look great in photos, and you will still be able to move around and pose comfortably. While you can have your maternity session later in your pregnancy, there’s a good chance you will have more trouble standing for long periods of time. 

Talk to your photographer about your requests 

Every photographer is different and every mum-to-be is different as well. If there are specific images you want or don’t want—be sure to let me  know. What images are important to you and whether you’re interested in doing partial nudes or glamorous gowns. It’s important to let me know what you’re comfortable with before your session so I can better plan out what shots and poses work best for you. 

Pamper yourself

Your hands will appear in almost all of your images, so you want them looking great. Your maternity session is the perfect excuse to pamper yourself a little with a manicure and moisturise those hands! 

Consider hiring a makeup artist or having your hair done

I allow my clients to make your own choices about how you want to look. If you really want to look your best, a professional makeup artist is the way to go. A pro will know how to do your makeup so it shows best in photos. If you decide to do your makeup yourself, you want to go a little bolder with your makeup than you normally would to make sure your eyes and lips are well-defined in your images. How about a visit to your hair stylist. If you’re not sure how to have your hair done, think about what you want your photos to look like. If you’re going for a more casual look, a loose and simple hairstyle may be the perfect option. If you want your images to look a little more formal, don’t be afraid to go dramatic with an elegant look. I always recommend clients book in with my gorgeous friend Christina at 'Wild Beauty' if they require hair and makeup prior to their session, her salon is in Ashby de la Zouch, Leicestershire www.wildbeautyacademy.co.uk

Get plenty of rest the night before

I know, it can be hard to get any decent sleep during pregnancy, but if you’re able to, go to bed early and try to get a full night’s sleep. That way, you’ll be refreshed and relaxed at your session the next day. 

Stay hydrated and don’t skip your breakfast!

It’s critical to drink plenty of water both before and during your session. Hydrated skin will look fresh, and staying hydrated will help keep your energy up throughout the shoot. And even if you have a case of nerves about stepping in front of the camera, be sure to eat breakfast before your session. 

Decide who to bring with you

Family is absolutely welcome at your maternity session, especially if you want to include your spouse or your other children. Just keep in mind that extra people can be a distraction and can even make you feel less comfortable in front of the camera, so avoid bringing friends and extended family members along. Space is limited in the studio plus you will be getting frequently changed in front of your loved ones

Choose what to wear

You should think about clothing for other family members who will be part of the session and make sure to choose outfits that coordinate and don’t clash with your own. My studio offers plenty of gown options available, so consult me directly via phone or email to discuss and view my available gowns. 

Keep the colour palette simple

You and your baby bump will be the primary focus of your images, so you don’t want to wear any bright colors or loud patterns that will distract. Instead, stick with neutral colors and tones that will look great with any background and any skin tone. Make Sure You Have the Right Undergarments Give some thought to your underwear and bras as well. For example, if you’re wearing a white dress, you don’t want to wear dark panties that will show through the fabric. And if you plan on doing partially nude images, make sure to bring along lacy undergarments that will look good in your photos. I always recommend nude underwear and strapless bras, and some black and white underwear. 

Make sure you are prepared for your session

Before your photo shoot, make sure to have a light snack and drink plenty of water. Pack a bag of extra snacks, your underwear and any other items you think you may need throughout your maternity shoot. 

Don’t tan!

Be sure to avoid using any artificial tanners or spray tans as they may give your skin an unnatural orange look plus they mark the studio gowns, leave the tanning to me in photoshop!

Make Plans for Your Other Children 

If you want to include your older children in your maternity session, it’s a good idea to make plans for someone to pick them up when they’re finished. That way, they don’t have to sit through all the individual shots of you, and you don’t have to worry about keeping them calm or entertained. 

Don’t Stress 

It’s easier said than done, but do your best to relax and not worry about your session. As your photographer, I will walk you through every pose and position. All you have to do is be your natural, beautiful self.

Safety is the most important thing in newborn photography | Derbyshire https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2022/1/safety-is-the-most-important-thing-in-newborn-photography-derbyshire

So why is safety important in Newborn Photography? We are trained in all fields of newborn photography. Professional newborn photographers understand newborn behaviour and what your baby needs. Newborn babies can’t regulate their own body temperature like we can, so it is important to keep them at the right temperature. Newborns can easily overheat and if they are not warm enough, they just won’t settle.

Newborn photographers understand everything the newborn needs to keep the baby calm and seamlessly transition the baby from prop to prop to achieve a smooth session. All our props are sourced from prop shops specifically designed for newborn photography. They know how to weight the props so the prop is safe and well balanced that it doesn’t fall over and injure your newborn baby. They won’t put your baby into something that will be dangerous to your baby’s health, like a pot that has been sitting in the back garden for years and might endanger your babies little lungs by breathing in compost.

All my props are safe and clean for newborn photography. I know how to safely pose a baby, whilst still protecting the baby’s neck. Babies can’t support their own heads, their neck is not strong enough. We know how to successfully wrap your baby to put them into a nice deep sleep without wrapping them too tightly that they can’t breathe and yet tight enough that those strong little arms can’t escape!

Newborn babies do nott have good circulation in their hands and feet. It is so important to be aware that you are not cutting off their circulation when posing the newborn baby. All the beautiful poses we see on the internet can be quite risky to achieve. Babies hanging on hammocks or hanging in props are not as they appear. These images are in actual fact, composite images. The baby was never hanging in the basket, it is all created in photoshop. As as professional photographer, I have spent over 11 years developing my editing skills in photoshop. You would never know that these images are actually two images merged together to create that perfect image to keep your precious baby safe at all times. My fear is that some amateur enthusiasts may not realise this and may attempt to replicate these complex poses, unaware of the inherent risks. 

An experienced professional newborn photographer will have an in-depth understanding of newborn behaviour and safety around all forms of posing. The camera does not make the photograph, it’s the expertise of the photographer.

So here’s a thought, would you let just anyone cut your hair because they own a pair of scissors? Of course not! So why would you take a chance with just anyone posing the single most precious thing in your life, you brand new baby.

As NW Leicestershires leading photographer I’m always promoting safety in what I do, whether through client work or training other photographers in the art of Newborn Photography. When you place your baby in my hands you know they are going to be kept safe and happy. You are also going to get amazing photos that you will treasure for a lifetime.

Please don't hesitate to contact me via our email address if you have any questions you would like some more information.

Know exactly what you want from your newborn photoshoot | Newborn Photographer Leicestershire https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2022/1/know-exactly-what-you-want-from-your-newborn-photoshoot

This may sound like strange statement, but when you are ordering a bespoke one off product like Newborn Photography, I always tell clients that it is best to have the end product in mind.

Really think about where you want to use your photos. Do you want a gallery of frames on your living room wall? Do you want a desk sized printed block of just one photo, or do you want a USB of all photos so that you can decide what to do with your images in your own time?

Knowing the answer to these questions will help you to choose the best package for you from the get go, saving both yourself and your chosen photographer a lot of time and energy.

Some Photographers make a lot of money from clients that don't know what they actually want at the end of a photoshoot. You can avoid feeling 'done over' by really thinking about what you want your photos for, where you would like to display them and how many albums and prints you may want for yourself and family members. 

You really want to avoid photographers that aren't upfront about their final costs also, as you may find yourself footing a bill of hundreds as you're reeled in using hard selling techniques, being invited back for an in person sale and pulling on heart strings to get your hard earned cash! 

I am a firm believer in fair, upfront and honest pricing, there will be no hidden costs and no hard selling, ever, I promise.

Do you photograph newborns in black and white? | Newborn baby photography Leicester https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2022/1/do-you-photograph-newborns-in-black-and-white

One question I’m always asked "Do you provide black and white newborn photographs?"  I absolutely do.  Over the years, black and white images have not been as popular as the deep rich colour tones; however, there is nothing more beautiful than a gallery wall of black and white images from your newborn session, this is why I provide all black and white versions of your purchased photos as a complimentary gift within your online gallery.

It’s true, not all black and white images are created equal. Years ago, we photographed with black and white film and there was a richness in the tones and depth that was and still is unmatched in digital photography. This was the case until we learned how to manipulate and convert colour digital images to black and white in a way that creates a similar richness and depth.  One mistake I see often in the photography industry when Photoshop is used, is when people take the colour from their digital photographs in one step. There are several steps to create a beautiful digital black and white image that prints amazingly.

Contrast is of major importance when converting an image to black and white. These are techniques that were worked on and I've perfected over the years.

All images from your session are shown in both colour and black and white.  If you are seeking more mono images than colour, let me know as sometimes I will use certain backgrounds and wraps to create an even better images that work in black and white for you.

Black and white fine art photography is often overlooked. Stunning visuals can be created with this technique that are classic and timeless.  If you have any questions at all, please contact Blue Bean Photography today.

Is Newborn photography worth it? | Baby photography in South Derby https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2022/1/is-newborn-photography-worth-it-baby-photography-in-south-derby So you’ve found out you are expecting a baby, firstly congratulations from me! I bet you and your family are super excited to meet your new arrival. Or maybe your precious bundle of joy has already arrived and your family is excited to see some photos of your little one.

You may have decided you’d like to capture those early days with some beautiful professional photos and you are searching google for a 'newborn photographer in the midlands', 'newborn baby photography in Derby' or a 'family photographer in Leicetser’. These are just a few of the terms you’d search for when looking for a Newborn photographer like me.

After a bit of research, you might have found a few prices, with varying newborn packages and lots of different experience and portfolios. I bet you are thinking with everything else you have to get ready for the new baby “Is newborn photography really worth it?” Well, I’m here to tell you why I think it’s worth it, then I’ll leave it up to you to decide if you think it really is.

I’ve got to be honest with you, I’ve photographed over a thousand newborns in my 11 years plus as a baby photographer. I’ve met so many families but I have never heard a new parent say ” I wish I had less photos of my baby” Or “I wish I didn’t have so many photos of my family when I was growing up”. It’s the complete opposite, in reality, we can never have too many memories of our nearest and dearest.

I know we are all attached to our camera phones and snap away constantly but, how many of those phone photos are hanging on your wall? Or worst still are you sure they are backed up to the cloud or would you lose every moment if your phone died? I learnt the hard way back in 2011, when my iMac died an almighty death and me thinking that I had everything backed up to the cloud, resulted in my loosing all of my 2nd childs newborn photos, even now, I have a lump in my throat thinking about it, I spent months afterwards going through emails and old hard drives trying to recoup the very few that I had.

I know it’s such a cliche, and you will hear it so often over the years but it’s so so true. A newborn baby grows too fast, they change so much in the first few weeks. And they don’t stop growing either, I now have my two oldest in senior school and I swear they were crawling around on the floor just 5 minutes ago.

Being a new parent is super tough, you are exhausted and life is mainly waiting in for the midwife or health visitor visits and then family and friends like to come and visit on mass to welcome the new baby. Believe me, you’ll barely get a moment to think, and you can forget sleep! Life is a blur of feeding, nappy changes, cat naps, and eating cold toast one-handed whilst rocking a windy baby.

Of course, you can take your own photos….and you will! You’ll take thousands of photo snaps on your phone. In fact, your iPhone will be red hot from the almost constant use. Your baby will be the most photographed baby ever, all those memories created will be so precious to you. 

The thing is, will you exist in those photos? will you get a family photo altogether? I know from experience it’s like I don’t exist when my children were small. I have photos of them and photos of them together and even with their Dad, only a handful with me in them. Those family photos are the most precious to me.

I hear you, “I really don’t feel my best right now, I’ve just given birth” every new mum feels the same I promise. Sleepless nights don’t fit well with any beauty regime. The thought of having your photo taken might send you into a panic, so my job as a family photographer is you make you feel and look amazing, to capture the love you have for your new baby. Every new parent radiates and it’s a joy to watch. 

I’m here to help you capture that special time and preserve it forever in something physical, something you can keep and hold. A photograph really is a time machine, it will take you back to that very special moment.

We live in a modern digital age, we all have photos on our phones but we rarely ever print them do we? We are so used to scrolling through them, swiping through snaps of a nice family dinner, wedding, christening or a night out, and mixed into that camera roll are our most precious memories of our children. 

Our children,  really do deserve to have their memories preserved, printed, and seen. Not lost on a phone or a hard drive somewhere. What happens when technology changes and like VHS tapes or DVDs you can’t play easily them anymore. Print those photos, make wall art from those memories and enjoy those moments forever.

So in conclusion, you know what I think, newborn photography is so worth it. It’s worth the extra effort it takes to get dressed out of your Pyjamas, put a bit of makeup on, and then making it out the front door to my studio. Not forgetting the battle to get your toddler ready and in the car without forgetting something. It is still worth all the effort.

The few hours you’ll spend having your newborn photoshoot will give you a lifetime of joy and pleasure. Every time you look at those photos on the wall you’ll remember just how teeny tiny your baby was and how much love you have for that child. I think those photographs are priceless.

Bye for now

The Importance of Maternity Photos | Pregnancy Photography in Derby & Leicester https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2022/1/the-importance-of-maternity-photos-pregnancy-photography-in-derby-leicester

Even though pregnancy does not come easy, it is an amazing time in your life. It is a time of celebration and of anticipation as you prepare to meet your brand new little bundle of joy. It’s a time where you become strong, much stronger than you ever thought you could possibly be. During this time, you create your initial bond with your baby that will continue throughout both of your entire lives. 

There are very few women who actually feel like they are beautiful while they are pregnant, especially during the first pregnancy. However, the miracle of maternity is a beautiful thing. Let's put swollen feet, stretch marks, and raging hormones aside just for a moment, you are growing a real live human inside of you, it’s amazing right? All of those side effects come from all of the different things your body has to do to help nourish and protect your baby. 

You are beautiful and remarkable, you really should take the time to celebrate these changes and this amazing moment in your life. Your maternity photos will be a great family heirloom to pass down to your child as a memory of your first moments with them even before their birth. This is something they can treasure forever. What an exciting time to document and celebrate the gift of new life! The best time to schedule your maternity session is 28-36 weeks, when the tummy is nice and round. This will vary with each women, and you want to schedule your session when you still feel good, but have a nice tummy. Just like everyday you want to choose clothing for your maternity session that you feel most comfortable and beautiful wearing. My maternity photography style is elegant, classic and timeless. As a maternity photographer, I love photos that are simple and clean.

Pregnancy sessions are best captured between 28 and 36 weeks, but if your schedule does not allow for that I would be happy to work with you at a scheduled individual date. Maternity sessions are tailored specifically to you. Can work closely with you and learn from your ideas and expectations to make sure that your vision becomes a reality.

I have a great selection of maternity dresses and gowns as you can see in my gallery suitable for photoshoots. Providing maternity gowns for your photo session is just one of the many things we offer to make your experience at Blue Bean Photography a luxurious one. Your maternity photoshoot is all about you and your baby bump, so take the opportunity to dress up in a stunning maternity gown from my collection to show off your body doing the most amazing thing it will ever do. Each dress is hand made and the stretchy fabric means that smaller sizing is very flexible, and the larger dresses can be pegged out-of-sight behind you to ensure a form-fitting shape if needed.

If you’re looking for a maternity photoshoot, get in touch via my Contact Page. and we can discuss your wishes when it comes to your maternity photoshoot.

Christmas photo sessions all wrapped up for 2021! | Christmas Mini Sessions Leicestershire https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/12/christmas-photo-sessions-all-wrapped-up-for-2021-leicestershire-photographer

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

I must extend my thanks to everyone for their support for what has been another extraordinary year, especially to my family who haven’t seen me since the beginning of October, I have virtually lived for Christmas sessions as I do every autumn.

However, 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.

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 2021 and wishing you all a brilliant New Year.

7 month old Riley | Baby Photography Derby https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/12/7-month-old-riley-baby-photography-derby

This cheeky little munch knows how to pose, that's for sure. Riley was all smiles for his 7 month sitter session. I have had lots of sitter photo shoots in the last few months but it has come to my attention that not many people actually understand what they are! It’s such a lovely milestone and one that shouldn’t be missed! Just look at how amazing Rileys photoshoot was, this age is so magical to capture.

A 'Little Sitter Session' is due when baby is around 7-10 months old. You are best waiting until baby can sit comfortably unaided so they are not falling over, as we don’t want any bumping of heads! This way we can fully concentrate on capturing those beautiful smiles and expressions.

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.

Mackay at 37 weeks Pregnant | Pregnancy Photography Ashby de la Zouch https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/11/mackay-at-37-weeks-pregnant-pregnancy-photography-ashby-de-la-zouch

I had a wonderful morning in the studio with Mackay and her mum this month she is such a stunner. She contacted me after her twenty week scan to discuss having a maternity photo shoot and I advised her that it was best to wait until at least after 32 weeks before we booked her in. The session was effortless, Mackay let me guide her throughout the session and trusted my direction, she was a dream to work with.

Here at Blue Bean Photography I recommend scheduling a maternity photo session within 28 to 36 weeks of a client’s pregnancy. That’s as early as the seventh month, yet no later than the end of the eighth month of pregnancy.This period around the third trimester is the best time frame to show a round baby bump!

During the 28 to 36 weeks window, mum typically still feels fairly comfortable, so it’s less taxing for you to stand or pose when taking photos. It’s also late enough in the pregnancy for you to very clearly look pregnant, with a nice round tummy to show off!

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.

10 day old Miss Holly | Newborn Photography Littleover, Derby https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/11/10-day-old-miss-holly-newborn-photography-littleover-derby How cute is this little beauty? I am so so lucky we get to shoot adorable newborns all day long. I really dont think there’s a better job in the world. Perfect little Holly lit up the studio with her gorgeous big bold eyes. This little girl has a lot of love to give and we witnessed it first hand. She loved being swaddled and held by her adoring mummy and daddy. No fuss, not a whimper, she just basked in the glory of her first solo photo shoot.

Where to pick pumpkins in Leicester https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/10/where-to-pick-pumpkins-in-leicester

It’s pumpkin season once again. Our Blue Bean Photography studio is once again full of our orange friends and props.

I welcomed adorable baby Sofia to the studio just a few weeks back. Gosh she is such a beautiful baby and was so well behaved during her photoshoot, we were finished in super quick time.

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.

7 month Milestone Photoshoot for Chester | Baby Photographer Derby https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/10/baby-photographer-derby

Today we had a visit from 7 month old Chester from Derby to celebrate his sitter milestone, what an utter cutie!

Why do I love a sitter session? I get to meet so many of your gorgeous newborns in the first few days of their life which is such a magical time that its easy to forget that some of the best memories are yet to come. 

Sitter sessions are usually carried out around 7-10 months, your little one can sit up independently but isn't quite the crawling escape artist they will soon become. It's such an amazing age to capture on camera, their personalities are developing and they are full of smiles and funny faces that make for amazing pictures to look back on. It is a great chance to capture the incredible changes that happen in such a short space of time.

1st Birthday outdoor photoshoot for Henry! | Baby Photographer Moira, Leicestershire https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/9/1st-birthday-outdoor-photoshoot-for-henryt-baby-photographer-moira

It certainly feels very Autumnal this morning πŸ Here's a sunny throwback from last month of happy little Henry celebrating his 1st birthday with an outdoor session.

Why not create memories and document your baby’s 1st birthday among the beauty NW Leicestershire has to offer in a natural outdoor setting. Depending on the time of year there will be different types of flowers and crops that all create a dreamy backdrop which will be perfect for your little one’s 1st birthday photo shoot.

During your little one’s 1st birthday photo shoot I’ll be sure to capture their personalities, expressions and character. To do this I like to keep things very organic and candid so i’ll need your help to make them laugh, point things out and allow them to explore so I can hold back and document your little one’s special day in a very natural manner.

Maddox | Newborn Photographer Burton upon Trent https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/9/maddox-newborn-photographer-burton-upon-trent

Little Maddox might have been awake for most of his session but he was content. Do not let that cute face fool you. He has beautiful big brown eyes and gorgeous hair. I absolutely adored him because he reminded me a lot like his brother. I got the chance to meet their mother when they came in for their first borns newborn photo shoot. I love when I am able to connect with my clients and got the privilege to takes both of her boys forst pictures. When she told me she was pregnant again, I was ecstatic. Babies + returning clients = PERFECTION. The best part of my job is not only photographing babies, it’s the journey I get to take with the parents. I get to experience the best part of life with so many amazing new mums and dads. It has truly been a blessing.

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

Take a peep at our Newborn Photography Studio | Leicester https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/9/take-a-peep-at-our-newborn-photography-studio-leicestershire

Purpose built photography studio is set within the beautiful National Forest

The Blue Bean Photography cabin was built in 2020. It has been a real labour of love preparing it for my photography studio and is a place I always dreamed of working in for my baby and maternity sessions. To see all that become a reality was amazing and to welcome families here who appreciate the homely relaxation you feel once you step through the wooden doors, and have such kind words to say, is such a reward for all the hard work that has gone into my business over the last ten years.

A warm and relaxing environment

I've always loved the idea of a woodland lodge; cosy and warm, filled with blankets and props, this is the feeling I've tried to create with 'The Cabin', as it is now officially known. In the picturesque village of Blackfordby, just outside Ashby de la Zouch, Leicestershire, we are very lucky to have a good sized garden, a perfect setting for our intimate and cosy log cabin where you can feel comforted that your little ones will be photographed just a few feet away from where you will be sitting.

Relax and enjoy the garden view of the National Forest out of the window which changes month-to-month with the change in the seasons. The Cabin is not overlooked, and is a secluded, serene place where you can just switch off and enjoy your photographic experience with a hot or cold drink and some snacks.

Edie is sitting! | Sitter Photography Session Derby https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/9/edie-is-sitting-sitter-photography-session-derby

In early September I had little Edie visit me in the studio for her sitter session and oh my goodness I just love her gallery!

So many expressions, and she just looks so beautiful in every romper she wore.

A lot of parents come to their sitter sessions almost expecting their ever curious baby to sit and smile all perfectly, but actually its so much more fun to just capture of these little quirks and expressions - these are the things you are going to want to remember. I really enjoy editing these sessions every new picture on my screen makes me laugh and smile :)

One week old Elsie | Newborn Photography Hemington Derby https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/8/1-week-old-elsie-newborn-photography-hemington-derby

Little Elsie from Hemington in Derbyshire didn't think much of sleep during her newborn session and as you can see was far more content being in her daddys arms, but look how content she was, not a tear in sight!

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!

Rachel booked me to capture her pregnancy, we shot her maternity session a few weeks ago and we had a great time in the studio! She was a little nervous at first but she settled down quite quickly and we managed to capture so many beautiful shots whilst excitedly chattering about her impending arrival.

She’s had such a hard time during her pregnancy so it was nice to help her feel special and beautiful for the morning.

Here are a few of my favourite images from her maternity photoshoot.

Very often when parents get in touch to book their child’s portrait photo session, they already have a pretty good idea of what they are looking for in their child’s photographs.

And every single time I chat to them, I get my own ideas and start to put together a “story board”. Esme's mummy wanted an outdoor shoot to capture her little girl in all of her sweet glory!

Naomi at 34 weeks Pregnant | Maternity Photography Derby https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/8/naomi-at-34-weeks-pregnant-maternity-photography-derby

I had a wonderful morning in the studio with Naomi and her hubby 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 10 years in this industry I have a 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.

If you’re expecting a baby this year you’ve got plenty of celebrity company, mama. From reality TV stars to bloggers and A-list actresses, there is a baby boom happening in celebrity circles right now. But if you are not a celebrity you can still feel like one while you are pregnant! Glamorous baby showers and even more fashionable maternity or pregnancy photo shoots are the ones for you.

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.

Harry turns 7 Months! | Baby Sitter Photography Coventry https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/8/harry-turns-7-months-baby-sitter-photography-coventry

Last week sweet Harry from Coventry celebrated sitting all on his own with a milestone session at the Blue Bean studio, we went for classic and simple styling for his photoshoot, and these neutral tones worked wonderfully for such a happy little boy.

Happy little Harry missed his newborn session during lockdown, but we made up for it at his 'Sitter Session', just look at that cutie! This little gent pulled out all of the expressions, and his big sister has grown a bunch since her own newborn photography session.

Dexters cake smash photoshoot | Baby Photographer Leicestershire https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/8/Dexters-first-birthday-photo-session-baby-photographer-ashby-de-la-zouch

My gorgeous nephew Dexter is turning one today so I had big plans for his cake smash photo session! Time sure does fly that first year of baby’s life, and that was the theme for this cake smash session. We took the literal flying approach with paper airplanes and rain clouds. Dexters daddy is my brother as as little kids we used to make paper planes together, so this session took me back to some lovely family memories.

I’m a little bias but I’m kind of obsessed with how it all turned out, this little man is such a blessing, we all adore him!

Little Miss Gracie first came to see me when she was only one week 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 12 months old as you can see she was full of smiles during her portrait images.

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

1st year Cake Smash Photoshoot for Jake! | Baby Photographer Derby https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/6/1st-year-cake-smash-photoshoot-for-jake-baby-photographer-derby

Happy 1st Birthday to Master Jake! It was wonderful to welcome back this gorgeous smiler back to the studio, it feels like 5 minutes ago when I first photographed him as a two week old newborn. Jake came to see me for his first birthday cake smash with a vibrant blue cake make by his very clever nanny. We got lots of smiles and he had a great time especially splashing himself clean in the bath tub! Here are just a few of our favourite images below from his milestone birthday 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 on their first birthday and then photographing them having lots of fun smashing it up. You may ask, why would you want to waste a perfectly good cake? I totally agree, so you may opt for one of our 'Fake Cake' options, perfect fun but without any of the mess! But cake smashes are growing in popularity and can be a lot of fun for everyone involved.

Hamish 12 days new | Newborn Photographer Coventry https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/6/hamish-12-days-new-newborn-photographer-coventry

I  got to hang out with this little dude and his big brother Rudy this last week, meet 12 day old Hamish a gorgeous chunky monkey who came for his mini wrapped newborn photo session from Chapelfields in Coventry. And what a personality, at first he was keen to stay wide awake and take in all of the sounds in the studio, then once wrapped he zonked out enough for us to capture some shots and props!

Willow @ 7 days old | Newborn Photographer Cannock https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/6/willow-7-days-old-newborn-photographer-cannock

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

Jenson turns one! | Baby Photography Etwall Derby https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/6/jenson-turns-one-baby-photography-etwall-derby

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 babies are really starting to develop their funny little independent personalities. Add trumpet sounds, Cheerios and lots of smiles makes for a super fun session! I just love first birthday photography sessions.

3 week old Louie | Newborn Photography Church Gresley Derbyshire https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/5/3-week-old-louie-newborn-photography-church-gresley-derbyshire

This is the best kind of repeat business! I opened my inbox with a gasp and a happy dance when I received an email from Louise saying they were expecting another baby! I updated my schedule immediately and booked them in for newborn session at my studio in Ashby, Leicestershire in May a few weeks after Louie was brought into the world!

I had the pleasure of being big brother Freddies photographer a few years ago, and now to see them again for another newborn photo shoot, oh my goodness, just a dream! Louie is as sweet as can be, he cried a little at the beginning of the shoot, but mum soon helped him fall asleep with a little feeding and lots of rocking.

If the newborn session you’ve booked isn’t your first, you may be considering whether to bring your older littlies along and get some sibling shots in. In an ideal world your older one will sit beautifully and hold your new baby and smile for the camera, right? Hehe yeah…ok, luckily for us Freddie was a pro baby hugger!

Enjoy a few of my favourite moments from Louies' session below.

12 day old Florence | Award Winning Baby Photographer covering Nottingham https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/5/12-day-old-Florence-newborn-photographer

Big Sister Phoebe welcomed Florence to her family recently, and they visited us at the studio from Nottingham to here in Leicestershire for her Newborn Baby photo session.

The session was great fun, and these two sisters were amazing to work with. Mummy and Daddy chose lovely creams, pinks and neutrals to incorporate into the photo shoot.

They say pictures speak louder than words and I tend to agree. Simple, natural and joyful – that’s the kind of newborn photography that makes my heart sing.

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.

Every one of the babies I photograph is different, even in their first week, their little personalities are showing. Greyson 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 me, not wanting to miss a moment of what I was doing!

Teddy 7 months old | Little Sitter Session Photography Woodville https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/5/teddy-7-months-old-little-sitter-session-photography-woodville

I have had lots of sitter sessions in the last few months but it has come to my attention that not many people actually understand what they are! It’s such a lovely milestone and one that shouldn’t be missed! Just look at how amazing Teddys photoshoot was, this age is so magical to capture.

A sitter session is due when baby is around 7-10 months old. You are best waiting until baby can sit comfortably unaided so they are not falling over, as we don’t want any bumping of heads! This way we can fully concentrate on capturing those beautiful smiles and expressions.

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.

1st year Cake Smash session for Ralphy! | Baby Photographer Swadlincote https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/4/1st-year-cake-smash-session-for-ralphy-baby-photographer-swadlincote

Happy 1st Birthday Ralphy! It was wonderful to welcome this happy little man to the studio for his milestone session this month. Just look at that cheeky face. What better way to mark the occasion than with a cake smash photo shoot. Happy birthday handsome!

Just to reassure all clients going forward. I had my first vaccine 2 weeks ago and also carry out biweekly lateral flow tests, I will be officially back in the studio in May after my big op but in the meantime, I'll be editing piles of sessions for other amazing photographers. It's going to be crazy busy, I'm so excited to be back.

8 Month Old Dexter | Newborn Photography covering Warwick https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/4/8-month-old-dexter-newborn-photography-covering-warwick

My handsome nephew Dexter is 8 months old this month, he's still a little wobbly on his bottom so we didn't shoot many before he preferred to roll himself backwards onto the backdrop.

I can't believe how time is flying, I'm looking forward to photograph his first birthday, so had best get planning his outfits and cake smash photo shoot.

9 month sitter session for Roux! | Baby Photographer Ashby de la Zouch https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/4/9-month-sitter-session-for-roux-baby-photographer-ashby-de-la-zouch

This gorgeous girlie was full of smiles when she came into the studio to celebrate her first 9 months in the world with a sitter session. I've been lucky enough to photograph Roux when she was a newborn and can't believe she is sitting already! 

I'm super excited to be back shooting soon and seeing all my previous newborns like adorable Roux come back for their 'Little Sitter Sessions'. Roux - 9 months of sass, it's the bow for me!

It's been so lovely to share and capture images within Rouxs 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.

Brothers | Family Photos Leicester https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2021/3/brothers-family-photos-leicester

I haven't photographed my boys since last November, trying to pull them away from their game consoles was like trying to remove a limb from each of them. I wanted to document their lockdown hair, take note of how much they had grown up in this last year and I was determined to do so before they go back to school next week. I think this last closure has been harder on the soul, and they really need to be back with their teachers and friends, but I'll miss them terribly.

On another note, I was seriously worried I had forgotten how to use my camera, by the time I'm able to reopen the studio, it will have been almost 4 months since I last held a newborn. I remember worrying about this after the first lockdown last Summer, but I didn't have time to forget. That first week back, we had 8 babies booked in, and apart from the lack of sleep, it all clicked back into place from the moment the beaming clients walked through the door.

So, please don't worry about missing those first moments, I promise you we won't, I'm so looking forward to welcoming you all back from 12th April....and see, I remembered how to turn my camera on!

End of 2020 Roundup | Newborn Photographer serving Derbyshire & Leicestershire https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/12/newborn-photographer-serving-derbyshire-leicestershire

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.

Victoria x

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.

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 Violet | Newborn Photos Church Gresley https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/11/10-day-old-Violet-newborn-photos-church-gresley

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?

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.

13 day old Rupert | Newborn Photography Meriden, Warwickshire https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/8/13-day-old-rupert-newborn-photography-meriden-warwickshire

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 πŸ’• 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!

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 πŸ’© and πŸ’§mishaps 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. 😝 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. 😡

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 πŸ’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 ♥️

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

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.

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.

Phoebe 10 days new | Mickleover baby photos https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/9/phoebe-10-days-new-mickleover-baby-photos

This week sweet little Marnie came to visit my studio from Mickleover with her lovely parents and big sister Sophie.

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.

Cake smash session for Aubree & Paislee! | Baby Photographer Coton-in-the-Elms Derby https://www.bluebeanphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/9/cake-smash-session-for-aubree-paislee-baby-photographer-coton-in-the-elms-derby

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.
