My first blog post- Lil'Ones Photography by M.Gancarz, newborn photographer Cambridge

Photography has been a hobby of mine for over 10 years. In the beginning I was photographing landscapes, architecture and everything else. I was a little bit afraid to photograph  people, till  both my sisters and lots of friends becomes mothers and they wanted me to take some photos of their babies!

I was a bit nervous but I loved the idea of capturing such a huge stage in a persons life. Becoming a parent is such a life-changing experience. Everything changes!

The first newborn I photographed was a 3 weeks old boy, my friend's first baby and at this time I didn't have any idea about newborn photography.  I  just went to my friends and  I did few simple portraits like these:

It turned out it's not easy at all and when I came back home I sat down at the computer to find out what exactly a newborn photography is.  And then I saw all these beautiful newborn images and just felt in love in them!!! I decided quickly that this is I want to do. I took it very seriously and decided to get some training from the basics first and this how I ended up at Russ Jackson studio in London. I felt that the Newborn Photography Workshop was what I needed to start.

It was such an amazing day.

Russ taught us so much. We covered:

  • parent preparation

  • styling and setting up the session

  • camera techniques

  • lighting

  • soothing baby

  • posing baby safely

  • marketing

  • editing

 

Not only did I learn a lot that day, I met some wonderfully talented people. We have all kept in contact and support each other wherever we can.

 

After that training  my obsession with newborn photography grew. I started  to search and learn  everything about it. I did take another newborn workshops about posing and newborn safety before I started practicing on newborns of friends and started advertising for newborn models so I could practice more.

Although parents were happy with their images, I always felt I could do better so I still continue to learn more light techniques and new poses.

 

This is a latest session with Milena
