Photographing newborn babies is just such an amazing experience. Capturing a life at the very beginning in all it’s newness and wonder. I love photographing babies – there, I’ve said it! Meet four week old Ennis Griffin. First-born son to such lovely parents, Jillian and Phil. Unphased by the occasion, Ennis chose to sleep through most of the session but did wake for a brief period, obviously got bored and dropped off again. Personally, I don’t mind shooting newborns asleep – after all they do sleep a lot so why not capture it? Ennis was photographed using available light – hybrid on film and digital cameras. The black and white pics below were photographed on traditional Kodak film, hand developed and scanned in-house. There is nothing quite like a true black and white film image, digital just doesn’t come close. It also offers the option of creating traditional hand-prints on gorgeous black and white fibre paper in the darkroom later on which are a simply stunning to view.
