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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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!Read More
Little Poppy came from Berkhamsted for her newborn shoot when she was 10 days old.
And when I say little, I really mean it. She was born at Luton & Dunstable Hospital at 35 weeks and weighed just 5.5lb.
She was the perfect little sleeper but my goodness did she like a good wriggle! I would get her into position, let her get comfy, and then we were good to go....until she decided it was time to wriggle again!Read More
I first met the Hayward family back in 2015 when their son Harry was born. They had a relaxed photo shoot in their home, which included a few studio style photos with Harry and then some relaxed family images.
I was VERY excited to hear when Harry's little sister had arrived and we arranged to do a similar style shoot.Read More
This little guy is the perfect example of just how fast life can go some times.
One minute you're 22, at Uni and your housemate is throwing Maoam at you down the corridor. Next thing you know, you're in your 30s and you're photographing their newborn son.
A few weeks ago Joshua and his family came to my house in Hemel Hempstead for their newborn photography session.
This little guy was a completely dream to work with and I got some beautiful images.
As usual, I started with wrapped images to get him into that super sleepy mood.
I can get three really lovely shots from the pose below - his whole body, his feet and a close up of his face.
I think we should take a second to appreciate his amazing hair. I LOVE it!
After we'd finished on the plainer blankets, it was time to get out the fluff!
He snuggled into the posing bowl perfectly and even flashed a cheeky smily :)
His mum decided to leave Joshua's big brother at home with his dad for first part of the session and then bring him round when we were ready for him. This meant he was ready and raring to go when it came time for sibling photos.
Joshua had started to wake up a little at this point so I wrapped him up snug and made sure he was ready for some big brother love.
I LOVE this family photo. So much in fact that I have used it in a sample product for my Reveal Sessions and gifted them a HUGE print of it.
As much as it may look like they're sitting there nicely together, much running and playing was required to get that bottom in mums lap!
It was a million percent worth it for the result :)

Primrose's newborn pictures are so cute, cuddly and full of personality. Just look at that big smile!!
As seems to be the theme recently, she was quite awake to start with so I wrapped her up snuggly in one of my purple wraps. She flashed us some big smiles and long stares before falling asleep and the posing could begin.
This pose is a slight adjustment to the 'on tummy' pose, where her legs have been bought forward to she's a little more on her side. It's a subtle change in pose but gives a whole new variety of images.
The posing bowl won on comfort once again as she snuggled down into the fluff. I used the living room floor as the backdrop as it matched the colour tones I was going for really well.
It's all about the details! Those tiny features won't stay tiny for long.
I especially love the nose and lips out of the pictures below <3
