Newborn Baby Photography London
Let there be light!
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 it’s 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.
In this session even though the natural light was limited we were fine. I make it my business to find the light in your home.
It’s just what I do… and moreover, what I love
