Isla’s Newborn Photo Shoot

Baby Photographer Renfrewshire


Absolutely loved our newborn shoot with Danya, from the very start to finish! She made us feel so at ease and was amazing with our little Isla. I love that its not just photos Danya offers, the personalised photo box and usb is so beautiful, its something that we will treasure forever, as well as our amazing orb wall art pieces! The whole experience was lovely, the day of the shoot and viewing our photos. We will be back for our cake smash πŸ™‚

Ashleigh ReidNewborn Photo Shoot

Ashleigh (Isla’s Mum) got in touch with me a few months before her due date as she was looking for a baby photographer for when her daughter arrived. We chatted back and forth after booking in her due date to secure her slot for her newborn session, and discussed the type’s of setups she’d like, colours she wanted to use etc. Ashleigh was quite happy to go with my creativity but did have one request, a rainbow setup. Ashleigh’s baby was a rainbow baby (a baby born following a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death or infant loss. In the real world, a beautiful and brightΒ rainbowΒ follows a storm and gives hope of things getting better). I could tell just how precious this baby was to Ashleigh and knew that the setup had to be something special.

In the meantime, Ashleigh kept in touch throughout the rest of her pregnancy and updated me when Isla finally arrived! A beautiful baby girl born ten days early weighing a teeny 5lbs 14oz! Isla came to the studio when she was just 11 days old and was one of the tiniest babies I’d seen in a long time! Her Mum, Dad and Gran were present during the photoΒ shoot and also got involved in some family images (much to Grans surprise haha!). She was the perfect baby and slept the whole way during her shoot so we managed to get so many different shots and setups.

We started off with the requested ‘Rainbow’ setup. I’d prepared a setup beforehand and photographed it before the family arrived. I wanted it to look like Isla was wrapped in a rainbow in the clouds. First I photographed the clouds from different angles from above, then (for safety reasons) I photographed Isla and merged the two pictures together to create the final image.

Next we moved on to the rest of her session, beginning with wrapped shots then on to some classic black and white images.
