Location: Fresnaye, Cape Town
Mila's newborn shoot has probably been one of the quickest I've ever done. Her parents wanted to capture this special moment of their life but not being huge fans of being in front of the camera asked me for mini shoot of just an hour.
I was a bit nervous because with newborn babies it's difficult to predict how they will behave, and they might as well end up crying for half of the time.... But this wasn't the case. Mila was a real angel and literally slept the whole time, and I managed to get as many beautiful portraits as I usually get in 2 or more hours shoot.
I love shooting newborn lifestyle portraits in people's home. I find it very intimate and unique, your home is your temple, and also the babies, being used to their environment are usual happier and more relaxed.
