This is not really something I do often and I could probably count the amount of babies I have held, on one hand. But when I got the chance to shoot Nikolai at just shy of two weeks old, I wanted to test the uncharted waters. If you have ever held a new-born baby you will know that they are
not the easiest things to handle, let alone photograph. That combined with a particularly hot morning meant he wasn’t going to be a slice of cake to shoot. Luckily with babes come Mums, and Grandmothers to help keep everything soft and groovy.
Heres one of Taryn the afternoon before Nikolai was born… We cut it pretty close.
