Porthtowan Studios Cornwall
Family and Newborn Shoot at Porthtowan Studios Cornwall
I first met Grace (mum), Aaron (dad) and little Ezra at Adam and Glens Wedding at Polhawn Fort, as Grace is Adams sister and was one of the bridesmaids. I have also taken photos of Ezra as he is child model for an agency. Grace was pregnant during the last shoot with Ezra and wanted a photoshoot as soon as the baby was born.
Ruben came to my studio when he was just a few weeks old, the youngest to visit me. Babies at Rubens age are very unpredictable on how they will be during a photoshoot. I try my best to make the environment as warm, quiet and as comfortable as possible for all my photoshoots.
Grace wanted the family involved in the photoshoot also, especially new big brother Ezra. Ezra was a bit more comfortable in front of the camera and with me since we had met a few times before.
Despite this being a staged studio shoot, I still wanted it to appear as natural as possible, avoiding any cheesy grins into the camera lens. I wanted to work around the family as they took turns holding little Ruben and fussing over him.
For the most part, Ruben stayed very calm and relaxed during the photoshoot and even had a few short naps.
Below are a small selection of images from the family and newborn photoshoot.
