It is really hard to describe a newborn sitting to a mum-to-be. It is so different to what most people think. So what is the best way to put new parents a little bit more at ease about having them precious moments captured in still imagery? Have a sitting filmed.
I have worked with the talented Cloudhill Productions before so I did not hesitate to call them in again.
Due to the amount of camera kit from both myself and Cloudhill the sitting would have to be a little slower, so I placed a model call for a little one. I had a fantastic response and a few days later we had the beautiful 14 day old James come into the studio with his doting parents and big sister Libby. It was a dream sitting with James being such an amazing model. When photographing siblings and newborns I find it a little easier to bring them in at the end of a sitting. Libby joined us at the end of the sitting, so we made her feel like a princess and she was such a superstar.
As I was finishing positioning with James, I would move aside a little to let the cameramen Russ and Gaz work their magic and capture the footage they needed. They were so professional and at some points, I totally forgot they were in the studio too.
After editing all the images for the client, I sent them to Cloudhill for them to use within the video. The turnaround was amazing and I am so pleased with the final product.
The Newborn Experience video has been such an amazing tool to show parents what to expect from a sitting and also to show how safe and relaxed it should be.
