I am so excited to share these newborn images of baby Abigail. She was born in Middelburg Mpumalanga on the 2nd of April at 10:46, weighed 2,9kg and measured 50cm. She is such a gorgeous baby girl, just as I suspected she would be when I first met her mom and dad with their maternity shoot. Her little mouth looks like a rosebud!
The ideal time to schedule newborn photography is between 7 to 14 days after baby’s birth, and we did hers when she was exactly 2 weeks old. I pitched with my gear just after mommy fed her and put her to sleep. But… being photographed is hard work (wink-wink), so she wanted her bottle halfway through the session, which gave her mom and me time to catch up.
While we were busy with the photo shoot we came up with the idea to use Chantelle’s wedding gown in some of the images. It’s beautiful with lots of lace which made a perfect backdrop. Abigail got sleepy again and just fell into a deep nap, right there on mommy’s dress.
