Newborn Photographer, South London
One of the greatest parts of my work is getting to meet and work with so many incredibly kind and lovely families across London. It’s a privilege every time I am welcomed into someone’s home to capture their precious family moments for them.
I am often one of the first to meet their newborn baby and to spend time with them as a family. The last one to capture the beautiful shape of a pregnancy bump before baby arrives. To capture those delicious gummy smiles before the first teeth break through or to celebrate that all important milestone of turning one! Sometimes even capturing those tentative first steps.
When I arrive at a photoshoot I always first assess the layout of the room. I then set about creating the studio. I do this whilst chatting to my Client’s and their children. Ensuring that I get to know them and putting everyone at ease. I think it is important to try to tune in to how your Client’s are feeling at that time / on that day. I’m always asking how their night was? Did they get enough sleep? Did their children nap? Is everyone well? This helps me to format the photoshoot accordingly to ensure my Client’s get the most out of the session.
To be a newborn photographer you have to have this in your nature. Patience and understanding of a babies needs are key to getting those final shots. Newborn photoshoot’s should never be rushed, if a baby wants to feed for an hour then it is much better to wait and let them do so.
I’m often asked what my most popular photoshoot is or what I enjoy photographing the most and I usually answer pregnancy and newborn. It is without a doubt on of the most special times to capture and one which is so very fleeting. These pictures will be treasured above all else in years to come and it’s important to get it right. Which is why it’s important to choose the right photographer for you.
Another stage I love to capture is the 4-6month baby stage. Those beautiful chunky arms & legs and gummy smiles! With personality leaping out into the pictures! The next popular stage is of course the one year celebration photoshoot. Where on many occasion I have captured and been a witness to the very emotional first steps! It’s always a joy to capture those.
I am often asked by my Clients to return year after year to add to their family galleries. So you could say I photograph all ages from newborn to teenagers! In fact I worked with two amazing teenagers this weekend at a family photoshoot in Kent. These photoshoot’s feel very different to my baby sessions. I absolutely love working with teenagers and older children. Capturing their expressions and personalities in simple yet striking portraits.
I am a huge fan of black & white photography but I am always happy to include some colour options for my Clients.
I like subtle hues and natural baby portraits. I’ll be adding a few more of these from recent photoshoot but please do enquire for further details.
