Sophie took some amazing photos which I think speak for themselves – her use of brilliant colour, composition and light are fantastic. More importanly, what people can’t see is the fact that she is an amazingly wonderful, patient and friendly person, which makes the whole session so comfortable. The final result were pictures which were about us – the way we live and are, making them very personal and precious. Thank you so much. Janice & Gemma
Becoming a parent was one of most incredible times of my life. In my faded memories, the weeks following Harry’s birth have a kind of gold glow surrounding them. Now, several years on, it feels so much like a dream. Newborn babies grow up so quickly and I treasure the newborn photos taken of my little ones in this most fleeting moment of their lives. It can be difficult to book a newborn photo shoot in advance, however I ask that you book me in for 5 -10 days after the baby is born (the most ideal time to capture total newborn goodness), and I’ll shift my calendar around if the baby comes early or later then planned; as the have a habit of doing!
I capture real life moments to give you a complete story of what life is like with a newborn. Newborn photo shoots nearly always take place in your family home, and are taken at a slow casual pace; your and your baby’s comfort and enjoyment of the session is my priority. It can take up an entire morning (up 2 to 3 hours) so you can feed and settle the baby as the need arises!
Also, please do not dismiss the chance to be photographed when you’re pregnant! My pregnancy photographs are such a source of pride and joy – was I really THAT big?? Doesn’t seem physically possible but yes, I have the documentary proof in these images! It is such an essential part of your story, especially when you’re about to become parents for the very first time. Maternity photo shoots are best held when you are 32-38 weeks pregnant, and they can include other family members if you wish. Maternity photo shoots are usually booked as an add-on to a newborn session and take about an hour.
