Blackheath Maternity Photographer

Blackheath Maternity Photographer

Jade is my lovely, gorgeous niece. She’s 34 weeks pregnant with a baby girl who is bound to be equally as gorgeous, so I thought it was about time we took some photos of them! Just some really simple, relaxed shots so she can remember this precious time in her life. I love beautifully lit images that withstand the test of time. Jade was a complete natural in front of the camera. She was relaxed, calm and up for having a bit of a laugh. It really comes across in these shots below, as I’m sure you’ll agree.

Pregnancy Photographer

Starting off in the bedroom, we really made the most of the gorgeous moody light peeking in through the window. The richness and warmth of the shots we got are reminiscent of fine art portraits. Not my usual lifestyle shots but I adore them just as much. We headed out to the local park around the corner and shot some relaxed lifestyle portraits too, we had the perfect mixture of cloud and sun so I got a verity of shots.

Soon, this wonderfully peaceful time that Jade is enjoying will be a distant memory and she’ll be up to her leaky nipples in nappies and dirty washing but loving life all the same 😉 (I can say that as she’s family!) also, let’s be honest the real problem here is the fact I will be a great-aunt in a few weeks time…Send Gin!

On a serious note, I am so pleased to present these pregnancy shots of Jade. Feel free to let me know what you think in the comments section below, I’d love to hear from you.

Dulwich Family Photographer

Kicking off the year with a family session in Dulwich, no room is left out when it comes to shooting in your home. As the kitchen is the central hub to most homes it’s only right we take some shots in there too.

Greenwich Baby Photographer

Freja turned 1 on the day of her second portrait session with me. This birthday photo session started off outdoors but it was freezing so we took shelter in The Maritime Museum. I got down on the floor with her and grabbed this shot as she flew over to me on her hands and knees.

When you tun up to a photo session and both parents are musicians, I couldn’t leave without hearing a tune…

We took a stroll soon after the spontaneous family gig and this happened. I love the movement and textures in this shot

Easily, one of my all time favourite shots, not just from the past year. The intimate connection here only happens when everyone lets go, forgets why they’re there and just embraces the moment. The squishy baby face, the protective arm, the tender kiss, the doting look. I can’t ask for anything more in a family photo.

Family Maternity Session in South Kensington

Family Maternity Session in South Kensington

Whilst walking to Astrid and Freddie’s home in South Kensington, in one of London’s picturesque mews, I realised how lucky I am. Lucky that I get to explore every corner of this beautiful city and lucky that I get to meet so many families that call it home. London has so many sides to it, this small corner, tucked away behind the busy museums is probably one of my favourites.

Astrid was pregnant with their third child during this shoot. I think she was about 2 weeks away from giving birth and still looking amazing.

You can see their newborn shoot here if you’d like to see if baby was a boy or girl!

Greenwich Family Photo Session – Competition Winners!

Greenwich Family Photo Session – Competition Winners!

I launched my new look website back in February, which was a huge success! A lot of love went into it behind the scenes, I wanted to ensure a smooth user experience but I also wanted to give back to my followers and clients. So I ran a competition where entries had a chance to win a family photo session and all the digital images. So many people entered, but Matthew’s name was selected randomly by the computer and boy am I glad it was. These guys were awesome!

Matthew heard about the competition from his wife Anne, who follows my Facebook page because she took my Beginner Photography Course earlier this year. It was perfect timing as they had just sold their house and are moving to Kent any day now. So having photos captured in their old home, their little boys first home, their first family home is super important to them. So many memories locked in those walls. Not only in those walls but in the area, in the street, in the walk to the local park (which happens to be Greenwich Park) and in the views from said park…

Not only that but Anne is pregnant with their second baby, so if ever there was a time for a family photo session, this was it!

I think we did well, I love these fun, happy images and so do they as I received this email from Matthew:

“Thank you so much for the absolutely stunning photos! We are so pleased with them. You have captured this moment in our little family’s life and our time in Greenwich perfectly and we will treasure the pictures. We are very grateful to you and feel very lucky to have won the prize, we will certainly recommend you to our friends and family”

Thanks guys, and best of luck in the future! In you’d like to book your family session get in touch soon, I’m looking forward to hearing from you.
