Baby B’s milestone session

Who else remembers Baby B from back in August?

Baby B’s newborn portrait session

GUESS WHO’S BACK??

I was delighted to welcome Baby B and his family back to the studio for a milestone session.

I couldn’t believe how much he’d grown since I last saw him!

Some babies are just pure naturals in front of the camera, and Baby B is certainly one of those blessed bubbas!

Those gorgeous blue eyes steal my heart every time I look at him!

I cannot WAIT for Baby B’s first birthday. I’m already counting down the days!

From bump…..to baby!

One of the best things about my job is being able to be part of a beautiful journey with my clients.

This gorgeous couple came to me for a maternity shoot back in November. We hit it off straight away, they were both such naturals in front of the camera!

After about 45 minutes in the studio, we went for a short stroll to my “secret location”.

Don’t be fooled by that golden sunshine! It was the end of November, and was actually FREEZING!

I admire Dad’s bravery, he was able to smile through his shivering so I could capture this beautiful photo!

 

Then, in January, I welcomed their little girl to my studio! She was as natural in front of the camera as both her parents, and we got some stunning photos!

Her family are from South Africa, so her parents were eager to incorporate small touches of this into her photos, I was only too happy to oblige!

And finally…!

No story is complete without the photos being printed and presented in a beautiful keepsake album!

What a perfect end to a perfect story…

… but of course this story isn’t over! Not by a long shot! Mum is already making plans to return to my studio when her little girl is a bit older.. Watch this space!

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!
