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.

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!

My 2018 New Years Resolutions - How did I do?

My 2018 New Years Resolutions - How did I do?

I know it’s such a cliche thing to say, but it is simply insane that it has been a year since I wrote my 2018 New Years Resolutions.

So how did I do? Well….great in some, ok in a few and not so good in others.

My Favourite Newborn Photos From 2018

My Favourite Newborn Photos From 2018

As always, it’s just crazy that a whole year has past and another group of newborns have come through my door for their Newborn Photo Shoot.

Looking back through the images, some seem like forever ago and some like yesterday. It’s crazy to think that some of these babies will be turning 1 in a few weeks.

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.

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.

2018 Photo Project | July

2018 Photo Project | July

Whew it's been hot this month!

And no, don't worry, I'm not complaining. 

For the most part I've actually really enjoyed it.  There were just a couple of days where it got a bit much.  Those ones where walking from Sainsbury's to the car felt like a 2 minute stint inside an oven.

Logan's Newborn Photo Shoot | Hemel Hempstead

Logan's Newborn Photo Shoot | Hemel Hempstead

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.

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!
