Newborn Christmas Photos

Newborn Christmas Photo

Not long now until I go back to Northern Ireland for Christmas and I'm so excited. I am bringing my camera with me so expect lots of new faces. I also hear that there might be snow coming, which will be even more exciting for 3 year old Amelia. Today Im working on an image of Molly with some toadstools.  This is a composite image which means that mums hand was in supporting newborn Molly head which was digitally removed afterwards (the hand that is not the head). Im really excited about my photography studio opening up in the New Year in Worthing, West Sussex so watch this space. Let me know what you think of the Molly edit. 

Love Claire xx

Sienna Newborn Photoshoot

Today I'm editing the beautiful Sienna's newborn session. Sienna was a couple of weeks old when she arrived at my home studio. She always kept one watchful eye on what I was doing. I love this sleepy photo of Sienna in the basket.

Yvaine 8 weeks old

It’s time for the second of this week’s baby blog posts, I think I’ll be retouching baby skin in my sleep by the end of the week! I always edit newborns with a smile on my face though, who couldn’t when they’re so cute! This little girl is no exception at eight weeks old, baby Yvaine was lovely and content, watching me with her beautiful big eyes and flinging her arms all over the place! Here’s a little preview from her photoshoot.

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.

I think I am slightly addicted to my photo shoots

I have been working away on my images and I could spend all day on them. I wasn't sure on the lamb wool throw, I felt it was too yellow. I think it looks better now.  I love how she looks dream like.

Welcome to my new website.

I cant believe the day is finally here, and that I have launched my new website. I'm very excited about what the next few months will bring. Not only will I be a mummy in approx 44 days time depending on baby Butler, but I am also the proud owner of a website. 

The next few months are going to be exciting and exhausting ones and I cant wait to capture all the moments on camera.
