On Sunday afternoon we invited Nessa Robinson, a lifestyle and portrait photographer from Dublin into our home to capture some newborn photos of Kadie.
Ideally these kind of shoots are recommended for babies between 6-10 days old. Kadie is six weeks old and alot more active and alert than a squishy week old baby so I’m amazed how stunning the photo’s turned out.
One of the things I loved about the newborn shoot was that Nessa comes to your home. It took away the stress of heading to a studio with the kids, something that can be very overwhelming and the main reason why I have never had newborn portraits done before.
Nessa was so gentle with Kadie, treating her as if she was her own. So when Kadie was getting tired Nessa completely respected my wishes to let her settle in her Cradle ‘n Swing. Once she had drifted off we continued the shoot and she captured this incredible photo of her. Isn’t it stunning?
The shoot was 2.5 hours long and it was done in our kitchen, one of the brightest rooms in the house and she brought along a heater so the room was snug at all times for Kadie. Nessa was armed with loads of different props, all freshly washed too.
Having since seen these heavenly images I’m gutted I have no professional newborn portraits of the other babogs. They’ll be throwing out all sorts of favouritism’s when they’re older.
We also got some pictures of the kids and a family portrait. This is our first ever family photo as five. I love how natural and playful it is, she really captured a beautiful and relaxed moment.
When Nessa mentioned to Kayla that she could get a couple of photo’s too she dashed upstairs to put her favourite dress up costume on and followed the camera like there was no tomorrow.
I have no descent photo’s of Frankie lately because as soon as he see’s a camera he shakes his head and walks the other direction these days. This one is amazing and one of my favourites. My little browned eyed boy. I’ve been threatening to cut away his curls but there’s not a chance now, how adorable are they?
Nessa was so professional, and as you can see her work is amazing. If you’re looking to book a photographer to capture precious moment I’d highly recommend her. I will without a shadow of a doubt have her back in my home capturing more of those little moments when she’s a little older.
