Spring Maternity Photo Shoots | Hemel Hempstead

Spring Maternity Photo Shoots | Hemel Hempstead

Spring is one of my favourite times of year for outdoor photo shoots. 

After dreaming of being able to wear boots for so long, the longing for summer shoes returns along with the earning for longer days and the smell of cut grass.  The sun starts to make a few more appearances and going out without a coat for the first time this year becomes an event.

First shoot of the year! - Sophie

Little did I know when I booked a lifestyle photo shoot for the beginning of the year, that it was going to be with one of the happiest and most personality filled babies that I have EVER photographed!

Everyone meet 9 month old Sophie.

Seeing her personality, I just knew I had to get some photos on her play mat.  The bright colours suited her personality to a T.


I then captured her beautiful smile on a nice simple fluffy rug before heading upstairs and getting some photos on mummy's big bed. 


Apparently Nanny has been teaching her this little trick!!


Finally we headed into her bedroom for some photos in her cot and in front her colourful book shelf. 


This 'lifestyle' approach to photography not only captures her beautiful personality - but also a snapshot of this time in her life - the house she will grow up in, her crib, her toys and books.

Maternity Bump Shoot : Kat

Maternity Photo Shoot at home

A few weeks ago I made a very misguided journey (thank you once again sat nav...) to see Kat and her partner for their bump shoot in Aylesbury. 

They have booked a 3 shoot package which means I get to go back once their little one is born and then again after a few months to see how they've grown up. 

We mostly stuck with natural photos, using the living room, master bedroom & nursery to capture pictures of Kat alone and with her partner.

The nursery they have set up is beautiful.  I am happy to admit I will be stealing their ideas for whenever I am need of my first nursery! 

To finish, I used a plain wall in their bedroom to capture some more studio style shots including the classic heart on the tummy shot and one of my favourites, which I call the sexy mummy shot! 

They are a really lovely couple and I am very excited to go back and meet their newborn in March :)


Bump Shoot : Barnes Family


I love outdoor photo shoots but In November they can be few and far between. 

When Nanae booked her bump shoot a few months in advance, we made plans to head to Stanborough Park and in the end were fortunate enough to catch the last warm (if slightly muddy) weather of November. 

The good thing about a location like this is the vast variety of images I can capture.  We had beautiful lake backdrops to work with along with the low winter sun which gave us some gorgeous light and some dramatic shadows. 

Lovely days like that are a photographers dream, even if it does mean getting a little muddy! 

I'm very excited to be heading back to Welwyn in a few weeks, this time to meet baby Barnes :)
