DIY Newborn photos

What strange times we are living in, week 5 of a national lockdown and we are getting full on cabin fever.

My days consist mostly of battling with my teenage son to get him out of bed before midday because its “wasting the day”. This is generally met with a chorus “of whats the point”. Im also struggling to see what the point is to be fair, and I’m picking my battles wisely.

Even my naughty dog Scamp ( yes aptly named)  has the wanderlust and is finding the tiniest hole to escape the garden and go for a walk.

I’m missing my lovely clients, and the newborn cuddles that are the highlight of my week. What a great job to have! This got me thinking, babies don’t stop being born during a pandemic. Obviously, with the stay-home stay safe advise we can’t get those early days photographed in the studio.

So how can parents still get photos to cherish?
