I’m not sure what resonates with you most when it comes to newborn and family portraits.

I guess, for me I definitely like as much authenticity in my life as possible, whether it’s in fabrics, food or friends. That’s what I like.  And so, that means I like the my newborn work to appear as natural and organic as possible.

This means if I get a parent that likes that too, I’ll sometimes mix up my traditional newborn posing and styling with more organic posing and styling.  Or even exclusively photograph in that style.  It sits perfectly right for me and I love it of course.

It’s all about what feels right for you, and your family.  What will ultimately mean the most and resonate with you?

This is the million dollar question, but, a good indication is to go with your gut.

What are you drawn to most in imagery?  Which images really speak to your soul? Think back in your lifetime, which photos have resonated with you the most in your life?

There are a few for me; an image of my mum changing my nappy on a scruffy pink bedspread. She was straight out of the 70’s and looked amazing for just having had a baby! This image is pretty special to me and it was just a moment in time recorded of a film camera. No posing at all.  The other one I can remember is a picture of me with my mum and her sisters, again looking pretty amazing in her 70’s cords and shirt! I am standing on a wall and they are looking at the camera, except. I am clearly not interested, I look about 3 years old. Oh and the last is me eating a custard cream biscuit, I am 3 years old, dressed in a cotton summer dress, I have ribbons in my hair. I have opened it up and am deliberating which bit to eat next.  And the truth is, I still think about doing this all of the time, but most times I just eat it the ‘normal’ way.

For me, photography is so much more than taking pictures and storytelling

Even though this is huge part of what I do, it’s also about connections, emotional connections, innocence, beauty and real life. It’s a medium of communication and I get to mindfully interpret and communicate what I see when I am with you, in your home and in your moments.

What does family mean to you?

For me it’s meaningful connections and relationships with people whom I love, trust and are thankful for in my life.

For me, it’s more than just blood family but my friends too.

What is it for you?

In my family sessions I document and tell your story.

I will weave my way into you family for a few hours to tell your story as it happens.

Expressions,  ups and their downs, elations and just mundane day to day stuff that you do and see every single day. Bedtimes, nap times, playtime, going to and from places.

I’ll go wherever you go. I’ll document it all.

These sessions are Raw, uncut, totally natural and I will use my camera, knowledge of light, love and family life to capture you all within your home, or at a location of choice –  as you are.

No need to dress up, dress however you like, just be there in mind, spirit and soul and I will capture you all.

These are the stories that you will want to put into books or  around your home as a reminder or what matters most.

You can book me for half a day or a whole day, it’s up to you.

Get in touch if this sounds like you

And here are few of me and my little guy, these images really do capture his personality and he is perfect just as he is. I also included a friend of ours whom we both love.  We are grateful to have him and his family in our lives.  They are to me, my family too.

I just want to give a virtual hi five to all the new Mums and Dad’s out there.

Some days I meet Mums and Dads who are confused by the information they’ve had, or they’re having difficulties in the early stages with feeding, sleeping, and so on. Sometimes I find Mums can feel anxious, sleep deprived or low. This is completely okay and you know what –  you’re all doing just fine. It gets better and easier with time. If you need help, ask the people you trust to help you.  If hey can’t help, maybe they can help to help you. Talk to someone you can trust and be honest, it’s the very first step and it really can help.

Give yourself a break, you needn’t strive for perfection because that’s just not reality, and you’re human. Take each day as it comes and be present with it because this is all new and it does get easier – oh and just know that you’re not the only ones going through this! Isn’t that a relief?

Most of all, I hope you enjoy the journey when you can, it’s pretty awesome, and extremely eventful too 🙂

The details – Natural Newborn Photography London

Natural Newborn Photography London

When getting those details of a baby I try not to aim for perfection, in general I just aim to highlight your baby’s features, skin, details.  Whatever it may be that I see.

Those of you who have been following my work for some time will know that I love shadow as much as I love light. I would actually go as far to say that I search for the shadows as much as I search for natural light. And it’s in these detailed shots, close ups where I love them the most.

I don’t know what makes a shot special for you, but, this is what does it for me
