Newborn Shoots

CONGRATULATIONS!

Your life is about to change! Whether this is your first baby, or second, third or fourth, the birth of your newest family
member is one of the most exciting and memorable days of your life. Photos are an amazing way to celebrate and for that very reason, I want to help you preserve this very small window of time that you can look back upon the birth of your baby with
vivid recollection.  The first few weeks of childbirth can be a tough and emotional time for a Mother and the
thought of a photo shoot can sound daunting. However, it doesn’t have to be that way with a sympathetic, skilled, experienced
photographer behind the lens who is only too aware of the ups and downs of post childbirth. I aim to make your session as relaxed as possible, it will be a great experience that will reward you with gorgeous photos you will treasure forever.

I do my newborn shoots in the comfort of your home and bring all the necessary props I require with me. Shoots can be done solely using these props or you may have your own items you would like included or would like some of you holding baby. 

You should aim to have your photo shoot within a week or two of birth. Doing it as early as possible increases the chances of ‘sleepy’ shots and they are much more pliable too! Since babies due date can be a little unpredictable, your session is
pencilled in until a date can be confirmed.

My sessions are very much baby led and I allow 2 hours for all my newborn shoots. 

Child Shoots

Photos are an amazing way to celebrate your children and remember how they were before they got too big to sit on your lap!  Posing children can be difficult but I find the best pictures are when children are just being children.
This is why my child photoshoots are done outdoors. I prefer to photograph children during their early years.
I can photograph your child outdoors from 3months old, with suitable weather conditions,surrounded by the beauty of nature up to school reception age (5 years old). I am happy to include older siblings.
To get the most candid shots I use distractions such as bubbles and also use games to make things fun.

My sessions are very much child led and usually last no more than an hour.

Family Shoots

Family photos are an amazing way to celebrate what makes your family so unique and capture happy memories. But for some parents, the thought of taking family photos can sound more stressful than enjoyable. Luckily, it doesn’t have to be that way! With a skilled, experienced family photographer behind the lens and a bit of thoughtful preparation, it can be a great experience that rewards you gorgeous photos. As your family portrait photographer, I’ll provide you with beautiful family portraits that capture all of the friendship, fun, and love in your family unit. (And I’ll help your kids have fun while doing it!)

I prefer smaller intimate family groups and as an early years photographer generally just photograph families with at least one child 5 or under.

Sessions generally last about an hour.

Cake Smash Shoots

So, your baby is turning one. What better way to celebrate than letting your one year old get in a mess!
Cake Smash sessions are great fun but be aware of the mess which will probably be left behind.
I can do these sessions outdoors or in if there is sufficient space and light. I supply everything except the cake and babies
outfit.
You are welcome to include your own decorations if you wish.

Check out my “9 Steps for the perfect cake smash’ article to help with the preparations.

Please allow up to one and half hours from my arrival to my departure.
