A wonderful pregnancy and newborn shoot.

I am very privileged, as a photographer, to be able to be part of some very precious moments in a family’s life.  One of my favourite times to photograph is the arrival of a new little one.  I love to be able to do the artistic shots in a pregnancy shoot and then to meet the new little addition for their newborn shoot either here at our Wimbledon studio or at their home.

Therieza wanted to book in her newborn shoot because she had fallen in love with the idea of having some beautiful portraits of their new baby daughter.  Having penciled in a newborn shoot she then decided that she wanted to treat herself to a pregnancy shoot as well so we arranged for her to come in to our Wimbledon Studio at around the 35 week mark.

“I have always loved the feeling of being photographed, but when I saw the display in Kingston hospital where I would have my baby, I fell in love with the photographs and was impressed with the quality of the shots.”

After the pregnancy shoot Therieza loved the images so much that she couldn’t wait for the baby to arrive so that we could do the newborn shoot. We always advise doing the newborn shoot within the first 10 days of the baby’s life so it’s good to pencil in a date, we can always change it if the baby decides to come early or late.  In Therieza’s case their little girl took a little longer to arrive but when she did, they came in as a whole family for a wonderful shoot together to celebrate her arrival.

“We wanted to capture the earliest memory of having our little girl. It was so overwhelming to have our only family portraits immediately after she was born. It was very special. I really couldn’t wait to have our photos enlarged.”

“The warm, calm, and stress-free environment of the studio was an added bonus. There was a toilet, which shows that Boggio Studios understands the necessities of being pregnant and a new mum. There was a portable heater, which worked wonders for our baby girl, and there were so many different kinds of interesting props that my boys played around with. I loved the different types of backdrops.”

“Our photographer was Katy. She was very patient with us, she waited whilst I fed and put our little girl to sleep. She was playful with the boys but very gentle with the baby. She recommended poses and ideas and took on board our suggestions.”
