A few of my favourites from a recent newborn photoshoot Dulwich London SE19
It was a joy to photograph the very beginning of this little one’s great adventure. She didn’t want to sleep at first, gazing at me intently on her mothers shoulder. She had the most incredible eyes. Very alert and curious for a newborn. After lots of cuddling, soothing and feeding from Mum she finally nodded off. Allowing me to capture her whilst she was dreaming.
I always opt for natural newborn positions. Carefully placing them onto my super soft baby bean bag for ultimate comfort. I take their lead, always following how they feel. For example if they don’t want to turn their heads in the direction I would like, I’ll wait and try that position later. When they are in a deeper sleep. As a newborn photographer every step of the way you have to treat newborns with care and a very delicate hand. This skill comes with experience and patience. Lots of patience. I move slowly and take their comfort into consideration at all times. This gives my photographs a much more natural and gentle look.
I am so grateful that new parents put their trust in me. I am respectful of that and of being a visitor in their home at this special time.
Coming to my Client’s homes for their pregnancy, newborn, baby and family photography sessions allows me the freedom to create an intimate studio setting. I like a calm atmosphere and I can easily bring the studio to life in any space. I have worked in huge expansive rooms and more compact apartment rooms. I am used to adapting when I arrive to make the most out of the session and to get the best shots.
My aim is to put everyone at ease and make their photoshoot experience enjoyable from start to finish. From the moment the booking is made to the moment they receive their finished images and products.
I received the most generous compliment this week from a family I had photographed a couple of years ago. They kindly emailed me and said:
“I thought I would get in touch to say that we gaze at your magical photos each day on our walls and just love them so much.”
Thank you so much, that was one of the best compliments I have received and written so beautifully!
I am now taking bookings for September onwards. I have only a few August spaces remaining and availability is limited but please do get in touch as I will always try to fit you in where I can.
