There is something very special about newborn photography. It’s being able to capture those first few weeks of life and that bond between parent and child, the little toes, the tiny fingers clenched around mum or dad’s index finger. I get captivated by the way they move their arms and kick their legs, almost in slow motion, and the panel of expressions on their little faces, often mirrored by mum or dad. I could just look at them all day.
I sometimes have the privilege of capturing more than one newborn baby in the family over the years, and see children I have photographed as babies proudly introduce me to their little brother or sister. And this is also part of the reason why I love my job as family photographer, documenting the various stages of life.
Because I love those early weeks, and to celebrate 2013 babies, I would like to give you the opportunity to win a Sweet Collection photo session worth £249. Participating is simple, you just need to:
– Be expecting a baby in 2013 (the birth date/due date can be any time between 1st January and 1st August 2013)
– Live within 15 miles of St Albans, Hertfordshire – although I will make an exception for Buckingham Palace ;)
STEP 2: Leave a comment at the end of this page with your due date.
The competition closes at midnight on 31st January 2013. The winning entry will be drawn at random during the first week of February 2013 and will be announced on the blog.
Good luck everyone!
UPDATE: The competition is now closed, found out who won here!
