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

Birth Photography – Model Call

I absolutely LOVE newborn photography and consider myself to have one of the best jobs ever, meeting these gorgeous little bundles of joy before most of the friends and family have even had their first cuddles!

But one of the most amazing experiences for new parents has to be the delivery and with the huge trend of Birth photography going crazy in the USA and making it’s way into the UK, I am offering 2 pregnant families the chance to have this experience captured forever for absolutely nothing!

I am offering my services as a professional photographer to capture a home or birth centre birth, free of charge in order to build on my portfolio and experience within this area. The pictures will be obviously subtle and sensitive but will capture the relationship between parents bringing a new life into the world and provide a lasting reminder of this amazing time to these couples, which often just goes past in a blur!

If you or someone you know, is pregnant and may be interested in this incredible offer then please get in touch! Thank you! x

And the award for the proudest big brother goes to…. Riley!

And the award for the proudest big brother must surely go to Riley! Look how proud he is, holding onto his new twin brothers, just 10 days old!

Riley was an absolute star and couldn’t wait to be in the pictures! He’d been practising his smile all morning and was just so proud of his little brothers!

I love this picture even more because the blanket was Riley’s when he was a baby and he had his newborn pictures with it, so it was so lovely to include it into the shoot for the 3 of them!
