Capturing Life's Little Moments Since 2013
N E W B O R N F A M I L Y S E S S I O N S
The beginning of a baby's life is exciting, beautiful and full of innocence, and it's wonderful to capture these extraordinary moments. The images of your baby's first experiences will provide you and your familly with memories for years to come.
I take a more natural, organic approach to baby photography. My heart is with family photography, creating and capturing special moments between you. I don't use props or studio lights, instead I take a more lifestyle approach which will include the whole family, capturing you all just as you are, including all the little details like tiny hands and feet. I am always happy to include any siblings or furbabies you have, in fact I encourage it - get the whole family involved! The best part is, it's completely stress free!!
Lifestyle sessions are storytelling sessions. Your story isn't found in a studio, your memories can't be made with backdrops and props.
I can still do a few posed wrapped images with cute little hats and hairbands, but these will be done without using a studio or lights. Why not try something a little bit different from the 'norm'. You'll be glad you did!
W H Y I D O N ' T P O S E N E W B O R N S
There was a time when I would turn up to a newborn session with posing beanbags, lights, backdrops, props and hats, and it took me a while to realise my heart just wasn't in it. It didn't make sense to me to have a baby on a beanbag away from their parents for an extended amount of time in the name of photography It didn't make sense to me to spend hours on end trying to make baby sleep to try to pose them in an unnatural position. It was stressful for everyone!! I know what it's like to have a newborn, and it can already be stressful enough.
During my Newborn Family Sessions now, babies spend most of their time in their parents arms where they should be. It's much less stressful for baby and takes half the time. I am in and out of your home in less than two hours rather than 4 hours.
I still place babies for photographs but never in unnatural positions, and I don't pose them in the way that many other photographers do. I think babies are perfect just the way they are, whether they are awake or asleep, placed on the bed or the couch, or in their parents arms. The way they yawn and stretch, the way they curl their little fingers and toes, that's how I like to capture their little personalities.
These types of sessions focus on interaction and connection from the family, and always result in a gallery full of beautiful moments

These sessions take place in the comfort of your own home using only natural light and natural surroundings, maybe in the master bedroom or in baby's nursery, I generally use the room with the best natural light.
Your newborn family session is completely baby-led so please allow for around 2 hours to allow for the moods and needs of your baby, you will never feel rushed and will have plenty of time to cuddle, change, feel and settle your little one.
It is best to start a session just after a feed, so baby will be nice and settled, but don't worry if baby has other ideas, we have lots of time!
All of the images shown below were taken without a studio or lights, and will give you an idea of what I can acheive with natural light and natural surroundings.
