They’re not little for very long, so you may be thinking about booking in for a newborn photography session. However, when you suddenly find yourself in charge of a tiny human being, remembering to brush your teeth is a monumental accomplishment, so getting out the door for a photoshoot can seem like a daunting prospect. Fortunately it’s not as scary as it sounds and thanks to the expert photographers at Pink Pepper Photography, the whole experience is designed to be as seamless and enjoyable as possible. I sat down with baby photographer Ancke Moolman to get all your questions answered.
When I was pregnant with Baby Boo, newborn photography was not something I gave much thought to. Then, after she was born and I realised how impossible it is to get a decent shot of a newborn using a camera phone, I thought twice. Unfortunately, I then discovered that if you don’t book when you’re pregnant, you’re out of luck because those pictures – the adorable ones of infants curled up in baskets, nests and on top of fluffy towels – can only be done in the first couple of weeks. And, if you haven’t booked in advance, you’re unlikely to get a spot in time. To make sure you don’t make the same mistake as me, I sat down with Pink Pepper Photography baby photographer Ancke Moolman to get the lowdown on why it’s such a top idea to book in for a newborn photoshoot.
