    Newborn baby essentials list

    Are you looking for a Newborn essentials checklist? Wondering what the most essential things a baby needs? It’s safe to say that it’s a bit of a minefield out there when it comes to babies. After having 2 children, I can tell you that although some things have changed over the years, it’s pretty much a standard that you don’t need all of the latest baby paraphernalia. You can keep…

  • Baby Photography London

    I’ve been a Baby, Newborn and a Natural London Family Photographer for around 8 years now and I’ve tried all aspects of Baby photography but this is home for me. Natural, Soulful and intimate. It’s really about photographing the obvious, the not so obvious and, everything in between. And these sessions are even better when Mum and Dad relax into just going with the flow and trying things out because…

    Newborn Photography in your own home

    I’ve been a Newborn, Baby and Family Photographer for around 9 years now and I’ve tried all aspects of Newborn photography but this is home for me. Natural, Soulful and intimate.

  • The girl in the red dress

    So I used to only work with neutral colour palettes…. but this past year I’ve definitely found a love for colour in ways I haven’t felt before. In particular warmer colours like mustard, rust, yellows and all shades of red are all pretty much up there for me. They are warm and warming. I love how the editing can also make certain colours even more warm and yummy. I’m Samantha.…

    EOS Magazine October 2020

    Thankful to have my work commissioned for EOS Magazine My daughter Téla was 16 in this image. I took it at home in my living room using natural light from a window and, a reflector. I know it’s not her favourite image of herself, but, I love how beautiful her skin and hair is, and this black and white really showcases her natural beauty.  Often with black models, there has been…

    Soulful London Family Photographer

    I’d say this style of photographing people is my favourite and most creative way to capture my son. Usually, I’ll sit and watch him play, often we talk as he plays or both of us play. The photos happen in the in-between moments. My sidekick This little guy has been my sidekick for the best part of 6 months, and today he’s gone back to school. There came the point…

    Saying No

    “We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.” -Maya Angelou Matt Haig recently wrote a post on Instagram about saying no. Here it is: https://www.instagram.com/p/CDAJhccscmA/ No sometimes has the power to give me life, sanity and peace when otherwise I just can’t deal.  And there’s no shame in it. Let’s be real, though, guilt and other things…

  • Beautiful Girl ballet dancer by London Photographer

    Portrait of a ballet dancer

    My daughter stopped ballet a few years back because she loved to tap dance much more and ballet just wasn’t for her.  After 13 years of ballet, she proved herself to be a graceful, strong ballet dancer. I always loved to watch her dance, her dedication was still on point (pun not intended!), and her dancing was beautiful to watch.  I’m not sure why I’ve never shared this until now,…

    Momentum: Black Lives Matter

    Here is a post I shared on Instagram yesterday about Momentum. I hope you’ll take some time to read it. Are you tired of it all? I’m tired of years of living and breathing it too. It’s become my normal. Let’s talk about where we go from here. Do we all have what it takes to change? This is so much more than one day of silence. I’m Samantha. I’m…
