The best thing about photographing family is that it's more like a day out rather than work. I can try things and happily admit when they don't work and at the end you get to hang out, practice cartwheels and eat ice-cream. (Unfortunately I was too full from ice-cream for the cartwheels otherwise obviously I would have joined in...)Read More
This year I held Summer Mini Photo Shoots in Hemel Hempstead on the Nickey Line.
I call them 'summer', but I actually got so busy with Newborn shoots in the Spring that they ended up taking place on the last two weeks of August (whoops).
Thankfully we completely lucked out on the weather and had beautiful sunshine on both days (similar to last year so maybe they're lucky!)
Photographing a newborn once is lovely, but getting to see them grow up is even more special.
I first met Alfred and his family 2 years ago at their house in Hemel Hempstead. He was only a few days old and a teeny tiny bundle compared to the little boy he is now!Read More
It was an absolute pleasure to go and capture some baby photos for this family a few weeks ago. You can see from the images what a happy and loving family they are!
My pink tutu came out to play for this session as her mum liked lots of girly things. I also think this may be the most outfit changes I've had in one session before!
As usual we started on my favourite place to photograph babies - the bed. It wasn't long before the dog, mum and dad got in on the photos for some cuddles and giggles as well.
I just love the three images below. Images like this are perfect to include in an album or in a triple frame.
There was some beautiful natural light coming into their living room window, which I of course had to make the most of to give a gorgeous bright background.
No session is complete without an image of the sleepy dog :) This cutie enjoyed sleeping with her eyes open and snoring loudly!!!
My fluffy blanket goes with me everywhere. It's great for getting both slightly more studio style photos as well as just being laid on the floor for some extra comfort in some lifestyle images.
***May 2016 Update***
I loved the images from this session so much that I decided to use them in my sample portrait album. Take a quick look at the video to see the amazing quality of the album and how great the images look when printed.
Have a question or want to enquire about booking a session? Please...
Just over a year ago, Charlie was one of my first super star newborns! The stars aligned (along with all the training i'd been doing!) and he was beautifully sleepy on a lovely sunny winters day.
I remember leaving his newborn shoot, happy that it was my best shoot yet and SO excited to show his parents his photos.
In the summer, I went back for his second photo shoot and we were blessed with another beautiful sunny day where we got some lovely photos outdoors.
Now he's only gone and turned 1 and he is my first completed 3 Shoot Package!
We pushed his shoot date back a day when the weather man predicted snow and we were not disappointed! We woke up on shoot day to just the right amount of snow for a 1 year old's adventure.
We started inside, giving him a little time to warm up to me again. We got some photos with his toys, in his bedroom and in mummy and daddy's room. Then it was time to head out into the snow...
Turns out walking inside is fine, but walking on the snow on the other hand - not so easy! The sledge and snowballs were a definite hit though!
Three shoot packages are my absolute favourite. I love getting to know each family over the year and watching their little ones grow.
If you're interested in a lifestyle family photo shoot (sorry, I can't guarantee snow!) then please Get In Touch for more information.
