Ruby 6 weeks old

Baby Ruby was just 6 weeks old when I was fortunate enough to capture some beautiful shots of her.  From natural shots with those beautiful big blue eyes to dressing her up as a princess. I thoroughly enjoyed spending time in her home, meeting Coco and Pugsy (the dogs) and photographing her big sis Robyn. 

Here is a tiny glimpse of her first baby photo shoot.

Little Lukas Newborn Photoshoot

Those first days with your newborn is such a special and memorable time. These are your first moments of parenthood, and they are priceless!

I was very fortunate to capture some beautiful images of Lukas at just a few weeks old. He was a dream to photograph and slept through most of the shoot.  I love this series of little Lukas he looks so peaceful in all of his shots. I am looking forward to seeing this little man again when he is a little older.

Hugo 11 days old

What a brilliant start to the year, every day has been so busy with photo shoots but this one was particular special as it was my first shoot in Seaford. I was so honoured to meet such a gorgeous family, I wanted to take Hugo home with me what a dream baby. What I loved about Hugo was his choice in music from Pavarotti to Disco. I was amazed at how relaxed he was for the session too, every now and again letting me see his stunning navy eyes.

Mum and Dad were just brilliant and not afraid to try different poses, which hopefully they will like. My only regret was having to leave I could have spent the whole day taking photos but I think when you reach over 200 images I think that enough. Here is a sneak peek of the shoot I’m delighted how it turned out even with the over cast on the day. Hopefully Mum and Dad will love them as much as I do.

Ethan 4 1/2 weeks old

This sweet baby boy arrived at my home on a very cold Saturday. I was delighted to see that he was so calm and alert!  He really was a superbaby on the day. He  tried on different outfits from the hungry caterpillar to Father Christmas each one as adorable as the next! I was able to capture gorgeous awake newborn portraits as well as some artistic, modern sleepy newborn portraits. He was a photographer dream and I loved spending that time with him. Mum and Dad a happy with the shoot so here's a sneak peek.

Eliza's cake smash

Today I did a cake smash photo shoot with the beautiful Eliza who just turned One.

This little girl surprised me today as I really thought she would have smashed the cake. But to my surprise she was the perfect little lady, checking with mum and dad if it was okay to eat the cake. Once she realised she could eat the cake the shoot only lasted what felt like a few mins. 

I feel so honoured that I have seen this little girl grow over the year and a big well done to Mum & Dad as she is such a 'babe'.

Amelia's Cake Smash

Finally got around to putting my photos up of Amelia's cake smash (practice run). All photo shoots are different, this one was particularly difficult as Amelia just wanted to crawl all over the place. She wasn’t one bit interested in the balloons or the giant cake. She just wanted to eat the backdrop which was made out of paper. (Her favourite food)

As a photographer you have in mind the perfect images that you want to shoot but toddlers are unpredictable and often you just have to go with what they are in the mood for. The below images are my favourite shots. I made the cake myself and was really happy with how it came out. It will be the same cake that I will make for her actual first birthday. Let’s see what kind of shots I will get on that day.

Maternity Photo shoot Brighton Beach

Maternity photo shoots should be a relaxing experience and this one certainly was. We had such a fantastic day and the weather was beautiful. Dawn was glowing and looked gorgeous in her blue dress. She has already booked in for her next photo shoot as she enjoyed the experience so much. Looking forward to seeing her again, along with her little Amelia.

Edit: Jack & George's Photo shoot

What a fantastic day I had with twin boys Jack and George. The boys were amazing and both had such different personalities. I started the the shoot by taking photos of blue eyed George, who was a right cheeky chappy. I think he loved all the attention which made chatterbox Jack a little jealous and he was dying to get up, to get his photo taken. I loved Jack's little excited expressions and he was chatting and wiggling away, so a fast shutter speed was a must for him.

Mum Laura was a total super star, I really admire mums with twins, I honestly don't know how they do it. 

I took photos of each boy individually, then together which they didn't like very much as they kept banging off each other. Then it was mum's turn and we shot some nice mirror images with each boy. Just enough time for some outdoor shots, followed by the boys in their Arsenal tops. Phew! I was exhausted but  enjoyed every minute and cannot wait to see the boys again. 

Here is a sneak peek of the handsome boys.

The joy of shooting a newborn

Creating newborn and baby photos is a  joy and honour for me,  I love creating images that will last a life time. The happiness that the parents express when they see the end result, makes what I do even more satisfying. 

Often as busy new parents you never get the chance to spend an evening taken photos of your new family. I have very few images of all three of us together. But those few images I have of my daughter as a newborn are so precious and I cherish them so much - from her beautiful eyelashes, squishy lips, and soft wisps of hair, to her soft tiny hands and feet. In years to come, I will look back at these images and remember how she was so tiny enough to fit in the palm of my hand and the days when she fell asleep on my chest.

A photo, I believe, is something that stops a moment in time. To help us remember how you felt….right at that point in time. Their smell, their touch, their innocence and true beauty of being a newborn.

My photo sessions are easy going and relaxed and while I will always have a plan for our session together, your newborn always comes first and I very much work to your baby’s needs. If you have anything in particular you’d like in your session, I certainly welcome your ideas as I am constantly being inspired.

Amelia 8 months old

A little peek into my photo shoot with amazing Amelia. What an fantastic little girl, I enjoyed every minute of this photo shoot. She was great fun and didn't complain once, even when she was attacked by lots of bubbles. 

Amelia had a great time playing with bubbles, listening to her mummy singing 'row the boat' and being pushed on the swing in the park. A really fun photo shoot which most importantly Amelia enjoyed. 

What made this photo shoot even more special is that Amelia shares the same birthday as my own little Amelia. I have some beautiful shots for her mummy and daddy which I know they will be delighted with.

Arley 12 days old

What a fantastic day in Haywards Heath I couldn't have asked for a more perfect photo shoot with such a fabulous couple and the amazing Arley. 

Arley at only 12 days old was a pleasure to photograph I think I only heard him cry once. I took over 300 photos from his cowboy hat photos to his little feet enclosed in mum and dad's hands, I have a wonderful collection of beautiful images for mum and dad to go through.

Eliza 8 months old

What a brilliant day with this gorgeous little girl. She's on the move now at 8 months old so I had to be quick with my camera. I managed to get some lovely shots for her mummy. 

She has such a fun personality from her toothless grin to her cheeky monkey noises, I enjoyed every minute taking these shots.

The importance of capturing your child’s youth through a lens

Over the past few months I have watched my own little girl grow and change dramatically. I cannot believe how much she has changed when I look back at her photos,  I often wish I took more of her during the first few weeks. It took me weeks to finally do the photo shoot of her and those early moments past me by. 

We all know the quality of camera phones and everyday cameras are improving all the time so its quite possible to take all your own photos. I personally encourage this- take as many photos as you can and videos too. I love looking back at the simplest of days/moments/ events. 

However, to have a professional Photographer capturing these moments of your children's youth is priceless. The importance of using not only a professional Photographer, the the same Photographer is vital for consistency and knowledge. Once your Photographer gets to know the personality behind your little one you can be sure to see amazing results. 

So in honour of that, if you book a newborn photo shoot with me you will get your child's first birthday half price. Total for both photo shoots £200.00.

Maternity photo shoot

Its been a while since I posted as I have been so busy. But I couldn't resist taking a sneak peek at this lovely couple who I visited last month. 

Cathy was absolutely stunning and both were a pleasure to photograph.
