BANPAS Showcase - July Winner : Captured By Samira

If you are looking for a newborn photographer, our members are amongst the country’s leading newborn and baby photogaphers. In fact, so beautiful are the images they produce that each month we ask our members to choose an outstanding image to showcase to the world. The winning image this month is a stunning, timeless black and white portrait of a curled up newborn.

The photographer who produced this gorgeous portrait is Samira Jones of Captured By Samira.

Samira is based in Bournemouth and we have managed to grab a few moments with her so she can tell us more about her photography.

Congratulations on your winning image this month Samira! Tell us what you love so much about newborn photography?

I love capturing newborns perfect little features. Newborns change at the blink of an eye so to capture something so new as an everlasting memory is just amazing! I just love capturing images which show how new and tiny they are from being really curled up like they were in the womb or showing size differences using hands of the parents. I also love capturing the love and emotion from parents and siblings

So are newborns your favourite type of session?

I want to say newborns as it is what I specialise in but photographing births is actually my favourite. To capture such a special personal moment in a families life is just amazing!
