Eliana's Newborn Photo Shoot | Hemel Hempstead

Eliana's Newborn Photo Shoot | Hemel Hempstead

Eliana came for her newborn photo shoot when she was 7 days old.

Her mummy knew she was having a c-section so we were actually able to book her shoot in on a certain day and keep it there, which doesn't happen very often when you're working with unpredictable newborns!

With a full tummy and toasty warm room, my run of perfectly sleepy babies continued as she slept from beginning to end without any fuss.

Hayward Family Photo Shoot | Leighton Buzzard

Hayward Family Photo Shoot | Leighton Buzzard

I first met the Hayward family back in 2015 when their son Harry was born.  They had a relaxed photo shoot in their home, which included a few studio style photos with Harry and then some relaxed family images. 

I was VERY excited to hear when Harry's little sister had arrived and we arranged to do a similar style shoot.

Sebastian's Newborn Photo Shoot | Watford

Sebastian's Newborn Photo Shoot | Watford

Sebastian's mum got in touch when he was 6 days old for a last minute Newborn Photo Shoot.  I booked him in as quickly as I could and ended up taking his photos when he was just 14 days old.

The ideal time for a newborn to be photographed is between 5 & 10 days but I do offer posed photo shoots to babies up to three weeks.  I might not get as many sleepy posed photos at 3 weeks but it all depends on the baby - some still sleep like a dream!

Rhea's Sleepy Newborn Photo Shoot | Hemel Hempstead

Rhea's Sleepy Newborn Photo Shoot | Hemel Hempstead

Rhea's family first got in touch when she was 2 weeks old.

As newborn shoots usually take place in a babies first 5 - 10 days, I booked them in nice and quickly so we could capture all those tiny details before she grew too much. 
There was no need to worry about her being more alert though - she was the perfect sleepy baby for the majority of her photo shoot!

I have people travel to me from all over Herts, Beds & Bucks with their newborns, but when Rhea's dad got in touch, I realised they only lived a few streets away - nice and easy!

The Baby & Newborn Photography Association - Who they are and why I joined

As a newborn and baby photographer, I have to take the safety of my little clients very seriously.  It might surprise you to know that the newborn photography industry is completely unregulated.  Photographers like me, who take safety seriously, have to take it upon ourselves to be trained and educated on how to ensure the beautiful images we create, are done safely.

April 2017 - The Adventure

Life as a 1 year old is one big adventure.  Every door must be opened, every stair climbed and every raised surface fallen off of.   It's a time of constant curiosity. 

It is also a time of throwing routine out the window whenever you fancy it, which is what happened in Isla's case.

Baby Photographer | High Wycombe | Abby & Family

Abby's family were bought a gift voucher for three sessions, which they decided to use at 4 months, 8 months & 1 year.
Time has flown by, as it has a habit of doing, and a few weeks ago I completed Abby's last session.

For this session, Abby's family decided to turn it into a family photo shoot, including her mum, dad and two big sisters.

Baby Pictures | Hemel Hempstead | Thomas

I first met Thomas and his family in April when I did his newborn session at their house in Hemel Hempstead when he was just a few days old.  
As usual, time has gone ridiculously fast and a couple of weeks ago I headed back to photograph his next milestone session.

When I first walked into their house it was great to see a large framed print of the above image hanging in their dining room.  They also have smaller prints dotted around the house, in their bedroom and his nursery.  Much better than a USB stuck inside a drawer!

When ever I send emails to my clients letting them know what to expect from their session I also express my love for vests and nakedness! 
There's nothing quite like the podge of a 6 month old and I dare you not to smile at that little naked bottom!!!

We got some really lovely family images at their last session so it was important to me to make sure I captured some more now that Thomas has grown up a little. 
I love a relaxed look to these photos so I encourage cuddles and playtime while I wander around and capture the smiles.

He may have only just been mastering the art of sitting but he certainly looks like he's got in down in this image! 
I love that you can a picture of him as a newborn with his mum and dad in the background.

Sessions with babies around 6 - 8 months are really just TONS of fun! 

I encourage singing, dancing and just pure silliness to help get those beautiful natural grins.  And no, you don't have to be self conscious because I will be singing and dancing right there with you!

Baby Pictures | St Albans | Harry

I'm photographing so many milestone sessions lately that it's scary.

It only feels like I was photographing them as newborns 5 minutes ago, but here they are, smiling, sitting, standing, and full of personality. 

Harry's mum Liz got in touch earlier this year whilst pregnant with Harry.  Without knowing it, her brother had seen she'd liked my Facebook Page and contacted me to buy her a gift voucher. 
It worked out pretty perfectly!

I went and met the gorgeous Harry in March and took some photos of his chunky newborn rolls!

Now, 8 months later, it was time for my next visit.

These images are the perfect example of why baby pictures are so important.  Just look at the difference 8 months makes!  Using teddies like this is the perfect way to show how fast he's grown.

When I take photos around peoples houses, I love to think of the children looking back in 10 years and their parents telling them stories about things in the images. 
Maybe the monkey mural was a huge pain to put on the wall, the bunting was made by a family member, the teddies he loved to play with.  I love to think that my images will be full of memories for them.

Ah, back to my favourite place to photograph babies - a big bed! 
Harry's mum is making a calendar of pictures of him for Christmas so we needed to tick a couple of months off of the list during his session.  First - Halloween.

In typical 8 month old style, this little monster did NOT like staying still.  All he needs to do is flash you his dimples and you automatically forgive him though!

To finish off his session we headed out to a local park in St. Albans.
Considering it was October, we completely lucked out with the weather and found ourselves in beautiful sunshine.

At this point we had to try and be more interesting than the tractor that was currently driving around the field (it was tricky!) but we managed to get some fun images with mum as well as some wintery images for his calendar.

Harry and his family are always really lovely to work with and I'm already looking forward to heading back to St. Albans for his 1 year session - let's face it, it'll be here before we know it!

Baby Photographer | Ashish

Before I even start, just look at these eyes.... I mean come on - and the hair?!  This little guy is gorgeous!

Ok, I can start now.   Meet Ashish (Did I mention how cute he was?)
He was a little old for a newborn session so instead we mixed up a lifestyle session in his home with a few studio style images using natural light.
He was lovely and content laying down and posing and even flashed me a few smiles :)

His parents also wanted some family photos so I set up for some more lifestyle photos around the house. 

At this point it all got a bit too much and he drifted off to sleep.  It was the perfect opportunity to get some sleepy cuddles with mum and dad :)

Images like this, of Ashish in his daddy's hands, are the the perfect type of moment to look back on in months and years time and realise just how much he has grown.

Baby Photo Shoot : Billie


Billie was my first shoot back after the new year, so I was excited to get things up and running.

Her and her mummy love all things girly and I think I shot her in 5 different outfits in the end!

At the start she was awake and wriggly and we got some lovely smiles and by the end we had one sleepy little girl.

We finished with some family photos with one zonked out Billie!

Newborn Photo Shoot : Olivia


Meet Olivia, my cousins little girl and the newest member to our extending family!

I was lucky enough to meet her before a lot of my family (muahaha) when I went round to do her newborn shoot a few days after she was born.

Her mummy had asked my sister, who owns Rosie Jo Crochet on Etsy, if she would make Olivia a caterpillar outfit for the shoot and then asked me if I would photograph her in it.   

It's a hard job but someone's got to do it!

Olivia slept beautifully through most of the shoot, only waking a few times to be fed and changed, which meant I got to use a lot of different hats and accessories to give her mummy and daddy lots of different shots to choose from. 

I imagine you'll be seeing more of Olivia in the future as we are already planning the butterfly shot that will follow on from the caterpillar! 

Christmas Photo Shoot : Rory


Rory's mum brought him to my house to get some Christmas photos in early December. 

I should be thanking Rory for letting me photograph him really because this little guy has already been scouted as a baby model! 

I started with a white fairy light set up, similar to what was used for Daisy's Christmas shoot a few weeks ago.  He loved the camera and kept crawling towards it, giving us lots of action shots! 

It was then time for an outfit change where he became Santa Rory and we went and played downstairs with ball balls and the Christmas tree.

I love to try and capture milestones at my shoots, specially in the first year, so it was great when we got a photo of him standing by himself - his latest trick :) 

Baby Photography : Toby


If you ever fancy having a themed photo shoot - there is no need to ask.  The answer is yes, Yes & YES!

Toby's mum contacted me a few weeks before Christmas and asked whether I would take some photos for a calendar she was putting together of him representing each month of the year to give out to family.

We started brain storming for what we could do (some months are really quite difficult!) and came up with a plan and a variety of props. 

As with a lot of 1 year olds, Toby's teeth were really not his friends on the day of the shoot.  That said, he was very patient with us putting him in (the most amazing) angel wings, picnic baskets, swimsuits etc. 

He looked SO CUTE as cupid!

I hope that all of the family liked their calendars :)
