Capturing your newborn’s precious first days
From the delicacy of your newborn’s tiny toes to the softness of their wispy hair, the first few weeks of a baby’s life are completely unique. As a mother of two, Jo Bradley knows just how quickly babies can change and grow – the first days of becoming a new parent are filled with immense joy; however this exciting and eventful stage can pass in the blink of an eye. This is why Jo offers photo shoot experiences which cherish this precious moment before your baby starts to change.
Inspired by her daughters, over the past eight years Jo has developed a unique way of photographing newborns, ensuring that her images beautifully capture your baby’s first days.
“It is a real honour for me to photograph these special memories for new families. I love seeing the parents’ joy throughout the photo shoot and viewing sessions – it is a truly amazing experience for both parents and newborns.”
Working at the pace of your baby
Jo is based in her relaxed studio environment located within her home, in Chelmsford, Essex and offers custom photography experiences focused on warmth, comfort, trust and an understanding of both the baby’s and parent’s needs. The photo shoot is an exciting experience for parents, eager to see their new baby photographed by a creative expert.
Patience is also key to Jo’s work. She takes time to ensure your baby is always calm and soothed, including taking breaks when required for feeding. She understands the importance of working closely and sensitively with new mums and dads, therefore each photography session is structured around the baby’s own pace.
