I love it when people bring things from home to include in their newborn portraits. Callie’s mum bought a bunny, which was about the same size as her, a pink flower headband and a pink blanket.Read More
When 2 month old Ben first came in for his photo shoot he was not having a good day.
Rather than keep pushing him on a day he obviously wasn’t up for it, I got a few photos and then called it a day. I’d rather babies come back when they’re feeling 100% rather than move them around lots on days when they aren’t feeling well.Read More
On the run up to Christmas I decided to challenge myself by venturing into the world of Newborn Portraits on Digital Backgrounds.
This is where I photograph a newborn baby on a simple backdrop and them edit them into a Christmas scene.Read More
Nobody takes cute baby photos like an 6 month old!
And there is no better proof of that than little Ralph.
Ralph came in for his Baby Photo Shoot when he was 6 months old. His family had been bought a gift voucher and they decided to put it towards some lovely cute baby photos of him along with a few family photos.Read More
Earlier this year I entered my very first Photography Competition - The Shoot & Share Photo Contest.
Every year, hundreds of thousands of photos are submitted by photographers from around the world ranging from cute baby photos, stunning wedding photos and gorgeous landscapes, all in a bid to see just how far they can get in the Shoot & Share Photo Contest.Read More
A few weeks ago, Daisy came for her newborn photo shoot at my house in Hemel Hempstead.
Daisy is my cousin’s baby and the fact my baby cousin now has a baby is simply insane.
(Ok so he’s not quite a baby himself anymore)
A few weeks ago I travelled to Watford to meet Marcus and his family for his Newborn Photo Shoot.
He hadn’t been very well and we had to postpone a couple of times but as soon as he was ready, we booked in a date and I headed over to his house.Read More
Every year for as long as I can remember, I have given up something for Lent.
I really enjoying testing myself in a way which will improve my health or life in general and Lent is a great reminder for me to that.Read More
Oh Darcie, how did you get so big, so fast??
I still remember getting the email from your mum letting me know that they were expecting another baby and being over the moon! And now here you are, a smiley, toe grabbing little monkey!Read More
Certain photo shoots are always going to be more special than others and that includes when I get to photography my family.
Carl is my ‘little’ cousin and Laura is his beautiful Fiance and it was my absolute pleasure to capture these photos for them.
A few weeks ago, little Dev came to me in Hemel Hempstead from Luton for his newborn photo shoot with his mum, dad and big brother.
He had arrived 4 weeks early, and was so smiley. He also made lots of cute noises, specially after he sneezed and had the most amazing hair!
He was teeny tiny but when he stretched out, my goodness was he long!
Model Calls are free photos shoots, which I offer to people for a whole range of reasons. Sometimes I have new props I want to try or new set ups, and other times I want to work to improve a certain pose.Read More
Although I love simple posed newborn photos, every now and then props just work so beautifully on a shoot.
Looking back through Freddy's newborn shoot I realised we got a good few props in there!
We used his little teddy as a pillow and dad wanted a close up him with Thor's hammer. I'm guessing someone is an Avengers fan!
I bought this romper at a photography trade show a few weeks ago and I absolutely LOVE IT! It goes so well with my grey fur blanket. (just look at those beautiful lips in the close up!)
Now to the posing bowl - another new favourite purchased from the photography trade show, along with the cream fur.
It's the perfect size for those curled up shots and all the babies that have used it so far have slept like...well...babies!
(ba dum tsh!)
Combined with a couple more of his teddies and a pop of colour from the blue knitted trouser, these are definitely a couple of my favourites from the whole shoot.
Who doesn't love a hat!? Specially these two, made by my very talented sister. Some props come and go but these two have been in my prop basket since the beginning!
It's SO important to me that I choose props and accessories that you will love. You should have seen how many times I walked between the two newborn stalls at the trade show trying to choose what would fit the rest of my collection (I got quite a few looks and even some comments!)
If you're a prop lover, or a lover of simplicity (or you love both, like me!) and are interested in a posed newborn shoot, Get In Touch for some more information.
I met Amelia's mummy and daddy a few weeks ago when they had a Bump Shoot in their house in Aylesbury.
There was still a lot of discussion over names at that time so I was very excited when I received an email letting me know that baby Amelia had arrived.
I headed up there a few days after she was born and set up in their front room in front of their large patio doors.
I used nice simple pale blankets for this shoot with a few pops of colour from headbands and wraps, including some family heirlooms.
By the end of the shoot she was in a nice deep sleep and we got some lovely sleepy poses and a couple in a dress picked out by her daddy.

Meet Olivia, my cousins little girl and the newest member to our extending family!
I was lucky enough to meet her before a lot of my family (muahaha) when I went round to do her newborn shoot a few days after she was born.
Her mummy had asked my sister, who owns Rosie Jo Crochet on Etsy, if she would make Olivia a caterpillar outfit for the shoot and then asked me if I would photograph her in it.
It's a hard job but someone's got to do it!
Olivia slept beautifully through most of the shoot, only waking a few times to be fed and changed, which meant I got to use a lot of different hats and accessories to give her mummy and daddy lots of different shots to choose from.
I imagine you'll be seeing more of Olivia in the future as we are already planning the butterfly shot that will follow on from the caterpillar!
