This newborn baby photo shoot of Scarlett Havana has a beautifully intimate feel to the photos. Precious and delicate baby Scarlett Havana in her strong father’s hands is skilfully captured by photographer Kofo Baptist. I love Kofo’s photography style where she works exclusively with natural light in natural surroundings, you feel like you there when the photo was taken.
Tell us about this newborn baby photo shoot, Kofo?
Scarlett Havana was 11 days new at the time of the shoot. And with a gorgeous name like Scarlett Havana, who could resist falling in love with her?
I met this lovely newborn at her parent’s home in North London. The shoot was done in their living room using only natural light. I believe that real life is beautiful and my style is to capture a mix of contemporary and lifestyle images. Plus their home has very good natural light which made my job a little easier.
Scarlett’s parents, Jackie and Patrick, are first-time parents and they were so besotted with their newborn. It was so lovely to be able to capture these special memories for them.Jackie and Patrick told me that Scarlett’s grandma had specifically requested for the ‘shirtless dad with newborn over the shoulder’ pose so I had to create the image just for her. It turned out to be one of my favourite images from the shoot.
What a beautiful name mum and dad chose for their lovely baby girl!
