Baby Photography in Chiswick House and Gardens
Raise your hand if you love nap time!
Our kids’ nap time is that glorious period in the day where they can relax and recharge their bodies. For us parents, it’s time to slow down for a bit, rest, and maybe drink the coffee sitting on the cupboard for some time now. Others also use it to be more productive, like catch up on work, do some chores, or spend quality time with their partners. How you want to spend your kids’ nap time is up to you!
Although naps are restful for both parties, the process of getting your child to rest could be long and hard. There are several ways that you can lull your little one to sleep. You can create a daily schedule, make a better sleep environment, ensure your baby’s essential needs are met, etc. But sometimes, none of these work! When that happens, you don’t need to fret. You can follow the lead of your baby if she wants to nap or not. Being flexible with your kid’s sleep schedule can reduce the stress and pressure on you.
Look at this couple’s photos with their tiny bug! They went on with their regular daily routine – playtime, mealtime, walk in the park. But the baby didn’t want to sleep during her nap time, and they tried everything until they gave up. Even so, we still got very adorable photos!
Looking back at this shoot made me remember to adjust expectations when it comes to our kids. We should try to be more flexible and patient with them. There are easy days, and there are days that nothing goes to plan. But that is okay. We should learn when to let things go and let them take the lead.
Instead of getting frustrated that their baby won’t nap as planned, this young couple managed to just laugh about it and make the most of their time. Their parenting approach made this shoot fun and carefree! I was also able to take some couple shots of the parents that were so pure and intimate. I love that their authentic connection radiates through the photos!
If you want to have your photograph taken but hate planning, then documentary-style photography is for you! You can just go with the flow. There are no poses to follow, no matching clothes to prepare, just real-life and candid shots.
For a genuinely fun and relaxed session that you, your partner, and your kids will love, send me a message!
Your family has a story, many stories actually to tell, and I believe they should be preserved.
