Newborn baby portrait Radlett
Harry at 3 weeks

Today I met a beautiful young family from Radlett. Dan, Karen and their gorgeous newborn baby Harry arrived at the studio this morning for a portrait shoot. Harry was very sweet and had a sparkle in his eyes.

After a short chat about the shoot, clothes and a look at some possible poses, we commenced the shoot. We spent about 60% of the time with a high key set up, white background and soft lighting. Once that part was completed, and after Harry filled his tummy, we swapped over to a black background and more directional lighting.

I hope mum and dad like these early pictures, they’re hot off the press. Dan is heading overseas very soon for work and so I’m working hard on post-processing all the images from the shoot so we can be ready for a viewing before he leaves.

Karen mentioned that she wished she had some maternity portraits before the birth of Harry – if you are expecting, please check out the maternity portrait page and blog articles to see the kind of work I do in this area.
