Newborn Photo Shoot with Sunshine Yoga

“The pictures are absolutely beautiful and we feel so blessed that her 7 day birthday got captured in such a wonderful way.”

This gorgeous newborn photo shoot was with Stephanie and Matt from Sunshine Yoga. I met Stephanie when I went on a gloriously relaxing yoga retreat a couple of years ago. It was a weekend of clean living and clarity, just what I needed when I had two young kids to run around after at home. This photo shoot saw me capturing some images of Stephanie in the slightly more hectic surrounding of having her own 7 day old baby, Jasmina.

I arrived at the shoot just as Jasmina had a major poo explosion so we started the shoot with some bath photos. In Jasmina’s adorable nursery Stephanie and Matt delicately washed Jasmina as she kicked so happily in the water.

Stephanie is from the Netherlands so I was offered a lovely beschuit met muisjes, this is a dutch crisp cake covered with muisjes on top. (pink for a girl, blue for a boy). Muisjes are seeds from the anise plant covered in a sugary coating, the beschuit met muisjes was delicious and I loved this newly discovered tradition.

When you have a newborn baby, your mothers can become invaluable. Both mums were helping and you could really see the love they all shared for adorable little Jasmina.


“We love this picture by @alijayphotography who came over today for a newborn photo shoot, which was so much fun & pictures we will forever treasure. This picture was taken after we had to bath her from a major poo explosion, which is exactly the moment Ali came over! “
