    Why I rarely use props in my home Newborn photography sessions

    When I started out photographing newborns 10 years ago, I wanted to learn everything about it.

  • 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.

There is something so honest about these sessions which…
