“Never work with children or animals” – you know this gets said to me a lot! Babies do cry! Sometimes a newborn shoot can be quite fraught.
Although this image is not like most of my work – I love it.
I think that quite a lot of my favourite images would be completely different if you could “hear them” – sometime that loving kiss shot with baby turned from camera can be in a difficult moment – I weirdly like this – parents forget about the camera and act like the new parents they are – and hopefully I get to capture that and that amazing rawness of newborns and new parents.
