Baby Bump & Newborn Photo Shoot with Claire, Andrew and Baby Ellis

Claire, Andrew & Baby Ellis

Claire and Andrew first came to our Stoke on Trent based photography studio after purchasing one of our Watch Me Grow packages. Our Watch Me Grow package captures special moments of your family and baby growing with three very special and individual photo shoots.

A few weeks before Claire contacted us she had been to another maternity photo shoot, unfortunately she was not pleased with the results of the images she was shown. Luckily she was not put off the idea and really wanted to capture the special time of being pregnant before it was too late, that’s where we came in! When we spoke to Claire we talked about what they wanted to achieve during the first photo shoot, and with this in mind Dan captured their fun and quirky relationship and personalities in various ways and also created some beautifully lit shots which really accentuated Claire’s bump.

The best time to have a maternity photo shoot is at around 8 months pregnant, or as late as you can leave it before your due date (providing you’re still comfortable of course!) in order to capture the size of the bump.
We knew that Claire was close to her due date when they came for their photo shoot, but we had no idea that baby Ellis was going to make an appearance just 4 days later!
A few days after baby Ellis had arrived, Claire contacted us to let us know and we were able to book their newborn photo shoot for when Ellis was just 7 days old.

Newborn photo shoots ideally need to be done within 10 days of the baby being born. This is when they are at their smallest, they will never be so small again, so capturing that moment is really special. At just a few days old they also love their sleep, therefore don’t mind being moved and placed gently into various positions to capture those gorgeous bundled up newborn poses… cute!

At 7 days old Ellis was an absolute super star in his very first photo shoot! Claire and Andrew had come well prepared with some personal items to the photo shoot such as Ellis’s Peter Rabbit teddy and an adorable crochet turtle outfit! (I’m sure you’ll agree he is the cutest turtle ever!) During their newborn photo shoot we captured a mix of images of Ellis on his own as well as with Claire and Andrew individually and most importantly all together as a family too.

Both Claire and Andrew are really pleased with their images so far, and we’ve really enjoyed having them in the studio, they’re such great fun and a wonderful family. We can’t wait to see them again for their third photo shoot when Ellis is a little older.

Here’s a selection of images from their maternity and newborn photo shoots, keep your eyes peeled for photo shoot number three!
