Newborn Girl Portraits | Pearl

Little Pearl came to me from Dunstable for her Newborn Portraits earlier this year.

After arriving just a couple of days early, her shoot took places on its planned date, which is almost unheard of! I would say around 90% of the babies I photograph come either early or late so I move their shoot date depending on when they arrive.


To start with, I wrapped Pearl up and we did family photos with her mum and dad together as well as seperately. She loved being snuggled up and fell asleep straight away.

After parent photos, it was on to large props. I chose a lovely earthy brown setup in my dark wooden crate and made it lovely and comfortable for her on some fluffy blankets.

From there I set up my posing beanbag, which is a large round bean bag covered in a layers of blankets. Layering the blankets means I can easily transition from one to another without having to disturb her while she sleeps.

Ah, I love it when a newborn smiles! And if you’re hugging a bunny at the time - well that’s like winning the photo lottery!

It’s always great to include personal items in a newborn photo shoot. Some people bring teddies, other blankets - some random things like golf balls and bike helmets! Pearls family brought this lovely little elephant.

Details, details, details! Those little things that will change oh so quickly.

Thank you for letting me photograph you Pearl. You were a perfect little sleeper and are welcome back any time.

Top Mummy YouTubers & Why You Should Watch Them!

From pregnancy updates, shopping, labour stories, mental health and baby loss - so many popular Youtubers shared their journey with us over the last year.

This year, things seemed to have slowed down a little on the Youtuber baby front, but we are now watching those babies grow and hearing all about their family life.

Dev's Newborn Photo Shoot | Hemel Hempstead

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!

My 2019 New Years Resolutions

My 2019 New Years Resolutions

I love writing my New Years Resolutions.

I completely understand that they aren’t for everyone, but I love setting myself little goals that I can work towards throughout the year. They’re nothing too difficult (apart from maybe the one where I want to stop my dog barking so much…) and are all things that I want to improve for myself, rather than being things that other people have made me feel like I should do.

Sonny's Milestone Mini

When people ask me what age is my favourite to photograph, I find it impossible to choose.

Newborns are tiny and new and special, 2/3 month olds are starting to smile and react to your silly noises, 6/8 month olds are chubby and smiley and one year olds are pure hilarious mischief.
