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
When 2 month old Ben first came in for his photo shoot he was not having a good day.
Rather than keep pushing him on a day he obviously wasn’t up for it, I got a few photos and then called it a day. I’d rather babies come back when they’re feeling 100% rather than move them around lots on days when they aren’t feeling well.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
Nobody takes cute baby photos like an 6 month old!
And there is no better proof of that than little Ralph.
Ralph came in for his Baby Photo Shoot when he was 6 months old. His family had been bought a gift voucher and they decided to put it towards some lovely cute baby photos of him along with a few family photos.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
Every year for as long as I can remember, I have given up something for Lent.
I really enjoying testing myself in a way which will improve my health or life in general and Lent is a great reminder for me to that.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 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!
When Adhiya’s family booked her Newborn Photo Shoot they said that they would like awake photos that captured her personality.
Of course once they said that I was expecting the worlds sleepiest baby to turn up that I couldn’t keep awake, but she was in fact the perfect awake model that her mum and dad had been hoping for.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
If you’ve found your way here because you’re expecting twins - Congratulations!!
If you have any questions about how a Twin Newborn Shoot is different to a photo shoot with one baby, find your answers here.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
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
I first met the lovely Montgomery family back in 2015 when they were expecting their first son, George. We've done Maternity, Newborn, Christmas, 6 month & 1 year shoots together and it's been really great getting to know them and watching little George grow up.
When they got in touch to let me know they were expecting baby number 2 I was very excited! We discussed everything they wanted from this next newborn shoot and counted down the days till her arrival.Read More
I always feel February is such a wintery month.
The sun is low, the mornings frosty and we generally get at least a dusting of snow. Walking the dog is a daily soggy and muddy mission and the days working from home are spent 'discussing' with my husband whether the heating needs to be on or not.Read More
When it comes to your Newborn Photo Shoot I have everything you need.
Years of hard work (...shopping) has resulted in a large selection of blankets, wraps, hats, headbands and props as well as all the 'behind the scenes' items that make your newborn shoot run smoothly.Read More
