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
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
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 years ago I travelled to meet the most lovely family and their newborn baby Oliver at their house in Harpenden.
In the blink of an eye, Oliver is now 3 and this time I got the pleasure of photographing his new little sister, Eva.Read More
For Arthur’s Newborn Photo Shoot, I travelled to his house in Buckinghamshire.
His mum wanted a combination of both posed and lifestyle photos and to include Arthur’s big brother Harry in some of the images.Read More
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!
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.Read More
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.Read More
If you’ve found your way here because you’re expecting twins - Congratulations!!
If you have any questions about how a Twin Newborn Shoot is different to a photo shoot with one baby, find your answers here.Read More
A few weeks ago I was contacted by Carys’s mum and dad and asked to do a lifestyle newborn shoot at their house in St. Albans.
Lifestyle photo shoots are a lovely, natural and unposed alternative to studio newborn photography where the emphasis is on taking relaxed photos of the entire family in your own home.
The photos show a perfect little snapshot of this time in your life.
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!)Read More
I first met Enzo in January when he came to me in Hemel Hempstead for his Newborn Photo Shoot.
As always, time flew by and before we knew it he was booked in for another photo shoot at 6 months.Read More
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.Read More
These adorable sisters have been coming to me for Photo Shoots ever since Skye was a baby and her big sister Sophia was quiet and shy.
Fast forward a couple of years and you have yourself two little, talkative cheeky monkeys. I say that, but they are also two of the politest children I've ever photographed and I look forward to every single shoot with them.Read More
A few weeks ago I headed over to Kimpton for little Ollie's Newborn Photo Shoot.
With his big sisters out for the day, it was just me, him and his mummy and daddy, ready to photograph him in all his newness.Read More
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.Read More
And so Bluebell Photo Shoots are over for another year!
We got off to a rocky start this year when the late snow meant that Spring was delayed by about 2 weeks. Mix in some rainy weekends and everything was a bit up in the air.Read More
Logan's mum first got in touch about a month before her due date to book in her Newborn Photo Shoot. We discussed everything she liked and didn't like and booked her in for around a week after she was due.
Logan, it seems, had other plans though as he arrived almost 4 weeks early! He had to stay at Luton and Dunstable Hospital for around a month so we kept pushing his shoot date back until he was given the all clear and was able to go home.Read More
