Little masterpieces: Newborn photography with a difference

Lindsay Walden newborn photography

There is nothing more beautiful than a newborn baby (especially your own!) and nothing softer than their lovely skin. Now Lindsay Walden has found a novel way to capture that look and feel in her photography.

Drawing on masterpieces like Van Gogh’s Starry Starry Night, and Munch’s The Scream (the irony is not lost on any new parent!), Lindsay has created fine art backgrounds for newborns to be photographed on. They remind us of fairy floss, but are actually created with hand dyed raw wool, coloured yarn and some help from her family!

Lindsay has re-created six masterpieces so far, and is planning another six to complete the series.
