Baby Blake’s Outdoor Newborn Photos

Socially Distanced, Level 3 Lockdown Newborn Photos

With no end in sight for lockdown restrictions we decided to take some outdoor newborn photos, to capture baby Blake with a sweet and simple family session outside their Auckland home.

Eight weeks into Auckland’s 2021 Delta lockdown, and restrictions had been lifted to allow outdoor, socially distanced outings again.  I was so excited to meet little baby Blake, and his mum and dad, who had been patiently waiting to have some beautiful newborn moments captured!  Instead of the indoor lifestyle newborn session that we had originally planned, we decided to go ahead with a contactless outdoor newborn session in their own front yard.  I arrived at their home an hour and a half before sunset and we started with some awake unwrapped photos of Blake, before swaddling him up to keep him nice and cosy for some sweet sleepy photos!

Having had these taken at their own home I just know that the photos will become even more meaningful in the coming years, as they look back and remember this time at home with Blake as a newborn.  I used my 105mm lens which allowed me to stay 2-4 metres away at all times and I cannot wait to do more of these sessions in the coming weeks with many of my other waiting families, who had a baby arrive over this lockdown period.  I enjoyed holding an outdoor newborn session so much that I will definitely be offering these all through the summer months!

Thank you Emma, Shane and baby Blake for allowing me to document your beautiful family, I am already looking forward to the next family session with you guys!
