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
On the run up to Christmas I decided to challenge myself by venturing into the world of Newborn Portraits on Digital Backgrounds.
This is where I photograph a newborn baby on a simple backdrop and them edit them into a Christmas scene.Read More
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.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
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 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.Read More
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.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
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
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
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.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
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
