Growing into his fabulous hair!

I went to see William again yesterday. He has changed so much since our first meet at the hospital. I find it hard to remember I'm there to take photos and not there to cuddle William whilst chatting to his mum and dad.

I experimented with a smaller, lighter studio set up this time, I relied on the beautiful Suffolk sun we had here yesterday and my large reflector to bounce a bit of light back. It worked a treat, just enough light to highlight William's dimples and show off his big blue eyes.

I managed to get a few shots of him relaxing in the basket before he decided to go on a feeding frenzy! I like to aim to get a good few shots of newborns sleeping, they look peaceful and tend to not experiment with how many faces they can pull within a 5 second timeframe. Every time William nodded off after a feed we placed him within the frame but he kept waking up to tell us he'd rather be snuggled up with his mum, and I don't blame him!

And he sleeps...

And he sleeps...

We got there though, he pulled out all the cute in the end.

So so snug :)

So so snug :)

I'm learning so much from these newborn shoots.
Patience is the one and only thing that is truly important, oh and warm hands!
