Maternity Shoots, Newborn shoots

Go big or go home!

In the words of Steve Jobs: “People don’t know what they want until you show it to them.”

Sure, he may have been talking about the iPhone, but I find this statement to be true in so many aspects of life.

Even when I go food shopping, Simon will ask me: “What do we need?”, and all too often, my response is “I don’t know! I’ll know when I see it.” As in, I’ll walk down an aisle, see something, and go “Ooh! Yes, we need one of those!”

Bearing this in mind, I took the plunge a few weeks ago to order a HUGE metallic print from my lab in Germany. When I say I took the plunge, I mean it. I paid the same amount I make from one newborn session for just ONE studio sample – that’s an expensive sample!

But, oh my, it was WORTH it!

Now, every client that walks through my doors has their breath taken away just like mine was when I first took this photo. And they all say the same thing: “Wow, I wish I had that hanging on my wall!”

Good news! You can! All you have to do is book a portrait session with me, and you can soon have your beautiful portraits hanging on the wall, just like this one!

Newborn shoots

Baby B’s newborn portrait session

Hello everyone! Meet Baby B, who came for his newborn portrait session at just 9 days old!

He absolutely ROCKED his shoot, it’s not often I get a baby as sleepy as Baby B, so I made the most of it!

If I had to pick a favourite colour, I would have to choose this colour scheme: these traditional browns and wooden textures perfectly portray that warm, fuzzy feeling of family and love.

I cannot express how much I love this timeless shot!  Those three perfect profiles just make my heart melt every time I capture it.

Look at this Mamma! Just look at her! Isn’t she gorgeous?? How can someone give birth to a BABY and look this fantastic just a week later?

This signature shot is LOVED by every single parent I’ve done a portrait session for. There’s just something so classic about the scale of the picture, and you just know that as their baby grows up, Mum & Dad will look at this photo and go “Look! Look how small you used to be! Your whole body could fit in between my arms.”

This was my HOT SHOT from Baby B’s session – this portrait now hangs in my studio as a whopping 60×40 inch metallic print, perfectly positioned to take the breath away of everyone who walks into the studio!

Baby T’s newborn portrait session

Everyone, meet Baby T!

This gorgeous girl came through my studio for her newborn portrait session, and I was super excited because I was able to make use of some of my props for the first time!

The beautiful doll in the photo is hand-made by Welsh business Cwtchi Coo, who use locally sourced wool. They make incredible props and textiles, I can’t get enough of them!

Baby T didn’t come alone to her shoot! Her big sister joined in and we got some adorable shots of the two of them together.

Baby T was a perfect model, and pretty much slept right through her whole session!

I had such a wonderful time capturing these beautiful portraits for her Mum, who spent ages agonising over which portraits to purchase (can’t say I blame her, it took me ages to whittle the final selection down to 25!)
