Having studied Photography throughout college, experiencing all different genres and developing a real love for it I went through lots of training sessions specific to newborns & babies. I now specialise in this area of photography, also photographing bumps, toddlers, children and siblings!
Capturing the most precious images of your bump followed by your beautiful new baby all the way through to sibling sessions in the years to come, I want to be able to photograph this wonderful journey for you and your family to cherish forever.
Preparing for the session…
If you are booking in for a newborn session, I will ask you when baby is due and pencil you in for around a week after this date, I ideally like to book newborns in for when they are 6-14 days old. I then ask you to let me know when they arrive and we can finalise the session date. Before your session I will send you over a ‘Pre-Session Guide’ this will include everything you need to know & what you need to bring with you to the session.
Newborn sessions last anywhere between 1 hour and 4 hours, this completely depends on how well we can get the little monkeys settled and sleepy and when we feel we have got the best images for you.
At the end of the session we will arrange a photo-viewing this is where I will present you with your final images from the session and you can choose which ones you’d like to purchase! I can either travel to you or you can pop back to the studio for the viewing session, which ever is easiest for you!
Ideally I like to get you booked in for your bump session when you are between 30 and 35 weeks. This means we will get the most beautiful bump images for you. They are tailored completely to you and what you’d like to get from the session, I only photograph how you feel comfortable. You can bring clothing with you if you’d like to be photographed in something special, or I do have outfits at the studio you can try on. It’s a very casual and laid back session that normally lasts around an hour. Feel free to bring any siblings or even dad along with you if he’s feeling photogenic!
My Baby and Toddler ‘sitter sessions’ are the perfect way to capture your little ones from around 6 months to a year depending on when your baby can sit unaided. The sessions are very relaxed and casual meaning we get some lovely smiley images for you. The session itself lasts anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour and a half, parent poses can also be included. Outfits and props are welcome to the session too, so feel free to bring along any items you wish.
Cake Smashes are a brilliant way to photograph your babies birthday, its a great way for them to get messy and have a bit of fun! The cake is provided and included in the session price, the colour scheme of your session can be chosen by yourself or I can do this for you. Any outfits you are wanting your little one to be photographed in are welcome along with any props too! (Baring in mind they will leave the studio covered in cake!!)
