Sometimes I wonder how much we have lost in Social Media, real social contact that allows us to look at each others eyes, and laugh and cry and hug and tease. But at the same time we have to recognize that most of us, in this way, have been able reconnect with some old lost friends. But what nicer than just reconnecting online, but to send you by post a hand written envelope with an old photo of you. I was about 3 years old and this is a photo of me, yes moi! one that my father took as he was also into photography, he developed the film and processed it himself, he wasn't bad at all!. He used to make many pictures of me and he was good to capture my mood! I was obviously angry! What was I angry for? I don't have a clue, but certainly I'm very happy right now. I reconnected with my friend and have a precious memory from my father. The truth is, real contact beats the internet. Thank you Yoan you made my day! #socialmedia #realcontactistherealdeal #realcontact

Yes, there is a first time for everything and for everyone from the time we are born. Our first steps, being a mum or a dad for the first time, taking your first photo with a professional camera,and, of course, photographing a new born baby for the first time.
What I learned from this experience was that knowledge about light and knowing your camera settings are only just a tiny part of photographing a new born. There are are lot of factors to take into consideration: Time of day, was the baby fed, burped? Nap times, changing times, mood of the mum. Everything counts. Every details is important and I was glad I prepared before hand to take some of these shots. It is not an easy job to do, but one you can prepare to a certain degree beforehand.
My last session with Deyana and her newborn baby Alexandra, was filled with joy, and oh boy, I can tell there is an abundance of love in her family towards little Alexandra. This girl certainly has a great start in life with her two dotting parents and her beautiful grandmother which I also had the pleasure to meet.
When booking a newborn photoshoot, never be in a hurry, unexpected things do happen, expect the unexpected, take your time, bring patience and let things flow as they come and somehow I’m glad I followed my own advice. But even happier that this young family also loved the work I provided and now they have beautiful memories that they will cherish for a very long time.
Thank you Deyana for trusting in me to create these memories for you.
I’m the one behind the lens!
