Norah 30 weeks pregnant

Its not often that I get to photograph friends with their bumps, photographing best friends with a baby bump is even more of a rarity. It is something in which I find so special and important to capture this beautiful milestone in her life.  Norah and I have known each other since we were about 3 years old and for both of us to be pregnant at the same time is just amazing and wonderful. We went to a nearby forest outside our home town that had beautiful bluebells and wild garlic. Norah has such a beautiful bump and it’s not long now until I meet her little bundle. Here is a sneak peek of my favourite images.

Victoria 32 weeks pregnant

What an incredible day I had yesterday with Victoria and Steven. I have never laughed so much. Victoria was up for trying lots of different poses and she looked fabulous in every shot! Victoria is expecting twins in June and she looked fierce in this shoot!. I love the variety of images that I captured yesterday from the traditional portraits to the more experimental artistic poses. I was over the moon when she said she would like a milk photoshoot. I’ve been dying to do these for such a long time This is why I love doing my job so much. I couldn’t wait to get back from Brighton and start edited these images. Here's a sneaky peek of what I captured.

Seascape pregnancy portraits- Monahlyn

The past few months have just been so busy, I didn't even get a chance to update my blog. But what a fantastic few months it has been, meeting so many wonderful expecting mummies and new babies. 

The photoshoot below of the gorgeous Monahlyn was shot in Seaford overlooking the seven sisters and cliffs. Monahlyn looked absolutely stunning against such a dramatic backdrop. I hope you enjoy the peek into some of the wonderful images shot that day.

Bex 37 weeks

Bex was so stunning as she arrived at my studio. I couldn't believe she was 37 weeks pregnant her bump was teeny tiny. The odd time Bex had to stick her bump out a bit just so we could capture that beautiful shape.

It was difficult to choose from so many great photos. I loved her energy on the day of the shoot we had great fun. From freezing our backsides off in the garden to capturing her beautiful bump relaxing on the bed.

I’m looking forward to meeting Bex's new addition. Bet he will be absolutely gorgeous just like his mummy.

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.

Happy New Year

What a fantastic start to the year, I have been getting lots of bookings for newborn photo shoots especially with the January deal on. Reflecting on last year I captured so many precious moments and met so many wonderful babies and parents.

Now that I am a mummy myself I can see how quickly our little ones grow and capturing the moments before they pass is so important to me. I look forward to working with you this year and meeting your gorgeous babies.

Maternity photo shoot on Brighton beach

On the 1st Nov I did a maternity photo shoot on Brighton beach and you really would have thought it was a summers day. Dawn was so fantastic on the day, I was so lucky she photographed so well. There was little or no editing done to her photos, she just looked so beautiful. 

From doing this photo shoot I realised how much I love my job, its so rewarding getting beautiful shots which I know Dawn will cherish. Here are some of my favourites from the day.
