Shoot & Share Photography Competition 2019

Shoot & Share Photography Competition 2019

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.

Darcie's 6 Month Photo Shoot | High Wycombe

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!

Dev's Newborn Photo Shoot | Hemel Hempstead

Dev's Newborn Photo Shoot | Hemel Hempstead

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!

Adhiya's Newborn Photo Shoot | Hemel Hempstead

Adhiya's Newborn Photo Shoot | Hemel Hempstead

When Adhiya’s family booked her Newborn Photo Shoot they said that they would like awake photos that captured her personality.

Of course once they said that I was expecting the worlds sleepiest baby to turn up that I couldn’t keep awake, but she was in fact the perfect awake model that her mum and dad had been hoping for.

Sonny's Milestone Mini

Sonny's Milestone Mini

When people ask me what age is my favourite to photograph, I find it impossible to choose.

Newborns are tiny and new and special, 2/3 month olds are starting to smile and react to your silly noises, 6/8 month olds are chubby and smiley and one year olds are pure hilarious mischief.

Kitty's Newborn Photo Shoot | Hemel Hempstead

Kitty's Newborn Photo Shoot | Hemel Hempstead

I first met Kitty’s family back in 2015 when I did a Newborn Photo Shoot for her big sister Grace in St. Albans.

I’m getting so many siblings come through my door right now and I am always so excited to receive their emails letting me know they’re expecting baby number two or three.

When Kitty’s mum got in touch she was already a few days old so I booked her in nice and quick so we didn’t miss those first sleepy 5 - 10 days.

Elise's Newborn Photo Shoot | Hemel Hempstead

Elise's Newborn Photo Shoot | Hemel Hempstead

Newborn Elise came to my house in Hemel Hempstead for her Photo Shoot a few weeks ago and was the perfect little model.

She loved to be wrapped but wasn’t a fan of being on her tummy so I kept her where she was happiest, on her back and her side. Not all newborns like all positions and I never force them into a position that they aren’t happy with (I can tell by the wriggling!)

Riley's Newborn Photo Shoot | Hemel Hempstead

Riley's Newborn Photo Shoot | Hemel Hempstead

Riley came to me in Hemel Hempstead for his Newborn Photo Shoot back in June. 

I had put word out on Facebook that I was looking for newborns between 5 & 10 days old to come in for a free photo shoot so I could perfect a few poses and try out some new set ups.

Everything you could ever need to know about your Newborn Photo Shoot

Everything you could ever need to know about your Newborn Photo Shoot

If you're like me, you like to plan everything down to the detail. 

I have check lists of things to take places, routes (and back up routes) of where I am going and will leave with enough time to spare that it's highly likely that I will be early. 
I'd much rather sit in my car and wait for an appointment than worry about being late (or even worse, actually be late)

If you're even a little bit like me, then this blog is just for you. 

The aim of this blog is to answer any question you may ever have about every stage of your newborn shoot - from booking to purchasing your images.

Lottie's Newborn Photo Shoot | Hemel Hempstead

Lottie's Newborn Photo Shoot | Hemel Hempstead

Little Lottie came for her Newborn Shoot a few weeks ago in response to a Model Call a put out on my Facebook Page.

Model calls are when I ask parents to bring in their newborn baby for a free photo shoot so that I can perfect something before trying it with a paid client. 
It might be that I want to practice a certain pose or try out new lighting.  In Lottie's case I had a few new creative ideas that I wanted to try.

Spence's Newborn Photo Shoot | Hitchin

Spence's Newborn Photo Shoot | Hitchin

A few weeks ago I travelled to Spence's house in Hitchin for his Newborn Photo Shoot.  

His mum had had a C-section and was unable to travel to me so I hopped in my car and went to them instead.
When I arrived, the house was nice and warm and ready for me to set up in their living room.  

People always worry that their houses won't be big enough when I travel, but usually any living room space is fine.  I may have to move a table or close a curtain but I'm pretty adaptable!

Newborn Photography | Edgware | Enzo

Newborn Photography | Edgware | Enzo

Little Enzo came from Edgware for his Newborn Photo Shoot when he was 15 days old.

When I can, I try and photograph babies between 5 & 10 days but if it doesn't work out like that, it's fine.  The older the baby the less likely they will want to curl up and sleep but that doesn't mean we still can't get gorgeous photos!
