Outdoor newborn photography during sunset

Jan 1, 2021

This is one of my favourite outdoor newborn photography sessions of 2020. The sunset was insanely beautiful and my clients were super chilled, first time parents.

Understandably, given that they weren’t local and this was one of their first times travelling a fair distance with a small human in tow, they were slightly late to the session. I was a little worried we wouldn’t have enough time to capture all that we needed seeing as newborn sessions are a little more time consuming than any other session. But actually Alexander was a dream the entire time, so much so we ended up shooting into blue hour because sometimes I just don’t know when to stop!

And I’m so glad we did because the light was incredible and the sunset was a crazy intense orange glow pouring over them as they doted on their baby boy.

My outdoor newborn shoots were so popular in 2020, given the fact I couldn’t shoot inside for the majority of my sessions, but what an absolute game changer! At home sessions are beautiful too but there’s just something so special about capturing a tiny newborn in the vast open wilderness.
