Newborn Photo Session in Woodford Loughton Family Welcomes Baby Boy

Photographing this Loughton family of four soon after the Covid-19 restrictions were eased was very special. They welcomed their new baby boy just four weeks earlier and they were keen on capturing this special time in their lives.

While the main purpose of a newborn session is to photograph the new baby, I also make sure I spend time with the older siblings and capture some portraits of them playing, joking around and connecting with their parents. The arrival of a new baby is something that every member of a family needs to adjust to, especially the young ones. Often a photo session is one of the first times when the older child gets to hold the baby or be very close to him or her. And these moments, frozen in time by a camera, are the ones that will be remembered by the family in the years to come.

We had a home family photo session with our 3 year old son and newborn baby baby boy. We are so happy that we used Alina, she came highly recommended from my brother and sister in law, and I can see why! Alina captured natural, relaxed photos of us all spending time together which was great for my husband as he isn’t keen on posing for photos! We really enjoyed the session, and my little boy particularly loved it as Alina was great at engaging with him, he found it all very fun. Alina is very calm and friendly, kept us all at ease and relaxed which helped create some lovely photos! Alina is an amazing photographer and we are absolutely thrilled with the beautiful photos we have received, and the style in which they are taken. They are better than I could have ever imagined and will always be cherished …. they capture such a special time in our lives.
