Double the fun – Twin Girls Newborn Photography

When I got the email that one of my wedding couples had just had twins, I was soooo excited to book in their newborn session!

Twins are double the fun, but also twice as difficult as a regular shoot with 20 tiny fingers and toes to make perfect!:-)Still, I absolutely love working with twins and wanted to post just a few from their gallery!

Baby Rose – 2 weeks today!

I had a lovely little session with new baby Rose (2 weeks) and her Mummy today! I photographed their wedding around 18 months ago and I was so happy to go back and meet their newest arrival!

I’m just in love with this little set up! Her Mummy & I worked hard to get this shot and I’m so pleased we got it! I’m just in love with this little girl’s hair too! Such a pretty girl – 2 weeks today!

Welcome Baby Leila!

I had the absolute pleasure of photographing this lovely family for their pregnancy pictures back in the summer and I was really excited to go back and see them again to photograph their newest arrival, baby Leila!

She was absolutely beautiful and the perfect little model! I have loads of beautiful pictures of Leila and her family but this is one of my favourites – a really natural and happy moment which I know this family with love and remind them of this precious time! x

Award Winning Photography – Children’s Category: Teepee Shoot

I’m sooooo excited as I just found out I won another award with SWPP (Society of Wedding & Portrait Photographers) for the July monthly image competition, Children’s category!

I think it’s really important to have personal projects as a photographer, and after begging my poor Mum to make me a teepee for a shoot idea I had, I dragged my little girls and my very patient husband into the forest to catch the late afternoon sun coming down over the bluebells in the forest! After finding a spot which wouldn’t damage any of the flowers, I set up my teepee and just prayed my girls would stay still long enough for me to get a shot! Of course, it wasn’t pure luck, I had a few tricks up my sleeve to keep them in place, but the light was gorgeous and it all came together to create this shot, which I am very proud of and which was given a Highly Commended in this months awards!

I love being a children’s photographer and spend many hours dreaming up shoots and creative ideas on keeping them entertained while I capture their little personalities! This award is extra special to me as it features my two little girls – one for the wall I think?!

Introducing Baby Albert – 10 days old (newborn home shoot)

Meet baby Albert!

This little guy was such an amazing and chilled out baby and I had such a lovely home session with him, his big sisters and parents today in Harlow, Essex.

I just couldn’t wait to share this image of him sporting my owl hat, although his Mummy also had some of her own hats lined up, which were fabulous and I’m looking forward to editing those too!

6lbs, 15Oz of pure gorgeousness!<3
