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.
