34 days new - Newborn Photographer in Cambridge

August 17, 2018

I'm a total people person.  I love to know about people and I feel very fortunate that my work as a family photographer allows me to do just that.  I just love hearing people's stories and finding out what makes them who they are.

My recent newborn photography clients found out about me from my display at the Cambridge Midwives office and I'm ever so glad that they did.

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing 34 day old Jeffrey.  When it comes to newborn photography Jeffrey could practically be considered a Senior citizen as most photographers will insist that they photograph the baby within the first two weeks of life.  (aside: That is absolutely not the case at our studio as we focus on lifestyle newborn photography)

So why 34 days for young Jeffrey?   I learned that in Chinese culture they have a tradition called 'zuo yue zi' or 'sitting the month' which is aimed to help the mother restore her body after birth.  It was so interesting to learn that during this 30 days the tradition is that new mothers have certain restrictions such as they must stay in their home, avoid bathing, don't drink cold beverages, eat cold foods or even shed tears!  So very cool indeed. 

So it was that on Jeffery's 34th day of life I was very honoured to be the photographer chosen to do his newborn portraits and introduce him to the world!

So without further adieu - I'd like to share these beautiful images of young Jeffery with this family.  Grandparents flown in all the way from China to enjoy their first Grandchild's first few months of life!
