Felix, Adam and Laurence.

One word: Adorable

We captured them at just the right time. Sitting, smiling, playing and so much character.

My first triplets session and I have to say it was so much fun.  Three very different little people, all at once.  I was in my element and loved every moment.

Mum and Dad were amazing with routines, routines, and more routines.

But it worked, perfectly.

Totally in awe of how Mum and Dad manage their daily lives. No sign of sleep deprivation at all.

Natural baby Photography London – Baby Emir

Natural baby Photography London – Baby Emir

I’m Samantha

I specialise in creating portraits that will last a lifetime.

What I love about these type of sessions is that they look and feel natural, that’s what makes them a ‘lifestyle’ session

I will capture you and your family, baby in the way you want to remember them. We will laugh, play, be silly, whatever, however but I will want to truly capture the essence of your child/children.

Without being ‘salesy’ or pushy, I will then make it my business to show you how to make the most of your images once you have them because for me, your session is something I truly want you to remember.

I don’t want you to walk away, put your images on the computer and they get forgotten about.  That really is not what I want for any client I work with. So I will find out more about you, what you like and how you see yourself enjoying your images in years to come in order to help you get to the right place in terms of how you will eventually enjoy your images.

So whatever you choose, it needs to be representative of your family, your child, your baby and furthermore, you need to be reminded of this time when you go about you daily lives in the future.  Whether it is seeing portraits around your home, prints on the wall or furniture or even having a beautful book designed which you can keep on the bookshelf or coffee table to leaf through when you feel like doing so.

Whatever you choose, it really must be something that suits you, and your family.  You have to visualise how you see yourself getting the most enjoyment out of your images.

Baby Photography East London

This family were truly so lovely together.

I am so glad they went against their initial thoughts to avoid a family photograph.

I knew they were thinking about an album so they had to have one, just to make the album perfect.

Here is what Mum said:

“Thank you Samantha, the album arrived. We absolutely love it. Thank you so much!”

And I smiled, from the heart, I smiled, because it felt good.

So good to know they had in their hands something they will treasure forever.

Newborn Baby Lifestyle sessions with Samantha Black

Newborn Baby Lifestyle Photography London

Newborn Baby Lifestyle sessions with Samantha Black

What is a Newborn Lifestyle Photography session?

These sessions are ideal for families who would like to photograph their newborn within the first few weeks (ideally within 8 weeks) in a more relaxed way. With traditional newborn sessions, the focus is mostly on baby with a large degree of posing and some use of props.  With a lifestyle session we will can still do some posing but not as much and really we try to keep the theme as natural as possible. We minimise the use of props and stick to wrap, blankets and simple fabrics and textures.  We can use items in your home to bring a personal feel to the session. For example baby’s blanket, a cot or crib, a changing table can all give your session a slightly different look and feel. There is a whole spectrum within Newborn Lifestyle Photography, and I can work anywhere within that spectrum, we can go super natural or we can incorporate a some posing.

How will I know what style of photography suits my family?

Together we will discuss well before your session and I will work out from you by asking you lots of questions, what I think you like and what would suit you so that on the day we all know what we are doing. It’s really that simple.

What should we wear?

In terms of Mum and Dad, I look for simplicity and comfort in their clothing and appearance, and we shoot is a more relaxed manner whilst still incorporation some degree of posing for Mum and Dad, it still has a really natural look and feel.

White, neutral and earthy tones work really well for clothing and bedding too.

What should baby wear?

Not much at all.  I will work mostly in a nappy, blankets, wraps and bodysuits/sleepsuits.

It’s also good to have maybe one or two sleepsuits and short sleeved bodysuits/vests that you like too.

Also pick out baby blankets you love, I’ll want to see all of these when I arrive.

Anything else?

Yes, just relax as best as you can on the day.

I will do my best to photograph you all in the best way I can.  I cannot tell you how important it is to try  to be ‘in’ these images with your baby, no matter how you feel.  This is your chance to get images of you and your baby and to get them the way you like them.

One day your child will look back and totally cherish these images, more than you know.  They will be the ones that they will always want to see and have. They will be the images that are their forever images

 So let’s focus on making you comfortable and getting it right. It’s a very special time for you all, let’s make it an enjoyable one too!

Forever portraits: Mummy and baby

Mum and baby Photography London – Forever portraits I call them.

Forever portraits for me are those really special moments between a mother and her newborn, baby or child.

If I’m honest, my upmost favourite portraits I have of my second child when he was a newborn was one that I took of him and my husband (first image below). And 4 and a half years ago when my son was born I wasn’t a professional newborn photographer. Even so, it was the portrait that I knew I had to have.

And I don’t regret it for one second.

Some of the portraits you see below are quite posed, other are less so.  But whichever portrait style I am photographing, I can guarantee there will be that one moment when I can sense that feeling. Sometimes it’s awe I see, or laughter in their eyes, maybe is just pure love, or sheer happiness, but there is always something… and I will always notice it.  Because I love it.

It’s probably why I love my job so much. I get to witness moments like that. Priceless.

Even in between the awkward moments of baby accidents (which can sometimes happen during a Mummy shot!), it’s there.

So, if you are not sure whether a portrait like this is for you, hopefully after reading this, you will know one way or the other.

Forever portraits for me are those really special moments between a father his newborn, baby or child.

Baby Anya – Baby Photography Highgate London

Baby Anya – Baby Photography Highgate London

I use a variety of lighting: natural light, off camera flash and studio lighting in my work. The majority of my newborn and baby portraits are taken using natural light purely because I love working with natural light when photographing babies and children, so, when I come to your home, I make it my business to find the best light I can.  

As photographers, we are in many ways are lovers of light, and sometimes, we don’t love it so much. Typically, many people think that if the sun is out, then its good lighting for taking images.  

I’m afraid, that’s a common misconception! 

Infact direct sunlight is a harsh light and is really quite unflattering. It is possible to shoot in direct sunlight with the right manipulation, but like with anything, it takes experience, practice and plenty of patience! Essentially, to obtain the best results, it is the ability to read and assess how to use it to your advantage. 

I have been commissioned by parents , grandparents and more to  photograph their children, babies and families in many many homes. Every single home is a different lighting situation than the previous and some are more challenging than others, so I have to be able to work the light I have and use it to my advantage.  I can safely say that by being constantly challenged to find that light, the kind of light that I love, it makes me better at what I do.
