There is something so honest about these sessions which…

  • Motherhood and the real truth about mothers breastfeeding

    The best London Maternity Nurse I know

    In my 7 years of working with Parents, expecting parents and Newborns, I have only ever recommended one London Maternity Nurse. You cannot not like Jan.

    When Shadow meets the light in Newborn Baby Photography

    Light and Shadow are equally wonderful in my eyes so I just love to make them work for me in my work where I can. I guess that’s why I love natural light, because I can have so much fun with shadow, and light especially within the realm of Newborn Baby Photography.

I just mean all of the ones I…
