I loved creating these pregnancy and newborn shots for this beautiful family. All taken in their home close to the incredible historic tobacco yard of Wapping London.
I consider myself lucky to meet families at such a happy time. There is no greater joy than expecting a baby. I love capturing the moments before and then the very special moments in the first few weeks after birth. It is an honour & a privilege to be invited into the home in these precious weeks to photograph the new arrival.
I often think of how my pictures will be shared and cherished by the families I create them for. Passed on from generation to generation. To this little ones grandchildren and great grandchildren. Taking on a new life of their own.
When I’m photographing a couple for their pregnancy portraits I want to capture the essence of them as a couple. The energy between them and of course (without sounding cliche) their love for each other.
This is just a small selection of the final images they chose. As a photographer you know in an instant when you have captured ‘that moment’ between two people. When they are relaxed and enjoying the photoshoot. It comes across in the photographs. That’s the magic moment. A brief moment in time preserved for a lifetime.
Returning to meet their newborn baby girl was very special indeed. At first this little one just didn’t want to sleep. But she was so calm and peaceful. Perfect for capturing these stunning awake shots. Before finally, with a little cuddling from Dad and a lot of feeding from Mum. She fell asleep.
A week later and I returned to their home for their private viewing. This is a separate appointment in the home which I offer to all Client’s after their photoshoot. It’s an opportunity to look through all of the images with me. To view product samples from my handmade album and frame range. with me on hand to offer advice and help with those final choices.
I always enjoy reviewing the pictures with my Client’s. It’s the final piece of the journey. For this session my client’s chose a handmade album for themselves with three smaller albums for family. All finished in natural linen with their daughters name and date of birth embossed on the front. A stunning set of thank you cards with one of their favourite pictures. And of course the very popular retouched digital images so that they can print and reproduce their pictures as often as they like.
Once the choices have been made I return home to my studio to begin processing the order. Images are retouched, albums and card layouts designed and once approved everything goes into production.
I pride myself in providing the best finished images and high quality products to my Client’s. to ensure they can continue to enjoy their pictures for years to come. I have a long standing relationship with my printers, framers and book makers (over 10 years!). We work together to ensure we are providing the best and staying up to date with current trends & colour styles.
