You want a mixture of photos including baby, some as new parents and maybe with your other kids (or fur baby!) too
You want to know your baby is in safe hands, with an experienced newborn photographer
You want to be able to use all the gorgeous wraps and props that see in my images
You hate posing so want your session to be as natural as possible
I might just be the one if....
During your session
My newborn sessions take place in your own home. When I arrive, all I require is some natural window light, and a small space on the floor for setting up some props. It is totally fine to welcome me at the door and leave me to my devices to take what I need in from the car. You just worry about staying cosy and comfy with your little ones.
I have various workflows I like to follow during your session, depending on how your baby is feeling on the day. Every session is different but usually I will start with some picture of you all toegtehr, cuddling on your sofa or bed, or standing by a window. If you have a nursery set up, this will be great for pictures too. If baby needs to stop to feed, or for a change, we will totally play to their tune. There is no rush. I will take pics of your baby on their own too whenever it feels right.
What's that saying again...? Never work with...? Nah! I love pets and siblings and will work with them not against them. We will take our time and ensure we get some pictures of everyone together and plenty variations. I will send you some ideas to make sure your little ones are feeling safe and familiar before they even meet me! :)
After your session, your gallery will be ready around 2-3 weeks later. You will have access to download all your images via your online gallery. There is the option to purchase prints and I can even help you to design a gorgeous album or wall art to display in your home.

I have one simple package that includes your session and all your digital images, so you don't have to limit your choices.
The One With Everything
A whole book dedicated to one of your favourite little people. What a lovely way to start their journey and just think how much they are going to love this as they grow!
These albums are serious eye candy with a choice of delicious fabric covers and nothing will ever beat holding your memories physically in your hands and passing them through the hands of your loved ones.
Fine Art Albums starting from £499
The moment I reach home from your session, I get cracking on backing up your precious memories. And within 2 weeks I will be ready to welcome you back to the studio to view you gorgeous gallery and all that is on offer at the studio.
In the meantime, I suggest taking a walk around your home to decide where and how you want to display your images. Think about spaces that you could really create an impact with your images, and spaces that will allow people to swoon over you stunning new art.
Try measuring up your spaces to see what wall art sizes might be best for you. You can view all wall art selections by clicking the button below.
add some personality to your walls from £349

Your session is going to feel super relaxed, so put all your nerves in a bag and throw them out the window! You will have plenty of time to settle in, to let your little ones become familiar with me and my camera and plenty time for snack breaks, feeds and cuddles.
The one thing that makes your photos unique is YOU. So I'm going to work closely with you to help you relax waaaay before your session even rolls around and I've got a few tricks up my sleeve to help you do just that. Including session prep, outfit suggestions, ideas to get your little ones familiar with me and lots of reminders that there is no posing or awkward smiles required!

My approach to photography
What about this other stuff..?
A £99 booking fee and a signature seals the deal. Your due date will the go in my diary and all your need to do now is let me know once your little one arrives. When we set a date for your session, the remaining £300 will be due.
I take bookings from as early as your 12-week scan. So, don’t delay as I can only book in 4 babes a month. Since babies often have a tendency to arrive early or late, I can only accept this limited number of bookings every month to ensure I have space for each session.
I sometimes have space on short notice, but the earlier you book the better, as I cannot guarantee spaces once I have hit my maximum bookings.
So I will say it one more time (I hate to let anyone down!) please don’t delay in booking!
Yes of course, if you have any questions at all, you are more than welcome to book a 15 minute online call where you can ask me anything at all and I can explain a little bit more about the process and find out exactly what it is you are looking for.
Within the first 3 weeks of your baby's birth is ideal but honestly, you will never ever regret having pictures done at any stage. Your baby will change so quickly within the first few months of their lives that I always say, any stage is better than none.
I recommend having a think about your outfits, and tying in similar colours, neutral is usually best. I can give you more advice on this later.
The only other thing to think about is where in your home will be best for photos. Now, don't worry, your home doesn't need to be in immaculate condition, I myself had a newborn once and I KNOW how hectic those first few weeks can be. Don't feel like you need to tidy for me, but having a clear space in your nursery, or in your living room will be great. Like I say don't feel like you have to go over the top tidying, but just aware of the items in the background that will end up being a part of your photos.
Your gallery will be ready within 2-3 weeks and will be emailed across to you.
Galleries can have anywhere between 40-80 images. If you are including siblings or pets you will generally have a few more to choose from.
Absolutely! All your images are provided as high-res digital images with printing permission for personal use, therefore you can print to your hearts content. Remember, all packages come with a selection of your chosen images to get you started! Yippee!
Production of physical items in your order, including prints and wall arts can take around 4 weeks to be ready for collection. However your digital images will be available to you as soon as you receive your gallery link, yippee!
TIME TO TIE THE KNOT
If there comes a time in your adventures that you've decide to tie the knot, then I would be SO happy to hear from you again. I absolutely LOVE all things weddings, the wee ones, the big ones, but mostly I am here for the "do it our way!" couples. And I cannot wait to help you on your way to your very own unique wedding day!
Your Journey's Just Begun
My pre-wedding/couples sessions are truly a unique experience, tailored to YOU. This is a bit of a time out from your wedding planning, to enjoy one another's company (the two of you, not me - although I am sure we will enjoy each other's company too :P). I want you to really milk your wedding experience for all it's got.
Of course, this gives you a chance to get a feel for being in front of the camera, but mostly this is about planning the most epic date that you will have to remember forever! Yippee!
I have created a signature experience which I just KNOW you are going to love! I can't wait to see what we get up to on yours!
