Baby Boy Fox – 12 days old, newborn photography home session

I first met this little champ’s parents for their bump shoot (a fantastic Christmas present for Mummy-to-be!) and on a cold but sunny afternoon, when we went into the local woods and got some cracking shots! Just a few weeks later Baby Fox arrived and I was really excited to go and meet him at just 12 days new!

Mum and Dad were already prepared with a gorgeous hat (which was a tad on the small side and I almost cried when we had to snip a bit up the back to get it on!) but this little guy was amazing and slept nearly the whole session! We had lots of fun with both the hat and the tiny fox teddy (his surname is Fox by the way!) and as Mum and Dad are also big Pooh Bear fans, we also squeezed him in amongst his newest friends at the end!

A really lovely session with a handsome little boy! I hope you enjoy the pictures!

Beautiful Rose – 12 Days Old (Newborn Photography)

I met the beautiful Rose when she was just under 2 weeks old! I photographed her parents wedding a few years back so I was so happy to hear from them that they were expecting their 1st baby.

Rose was an absolute dream to photograph and we had a lovely session.

Newborns are best photographed within the first 2 weeks, ideally in the first 8-10 days, so I offer all my clients a provisional booking 10 days after the baby is due, therefore enabling me to manage my very busy schedule! If you are pregnant and would like to book a newborn photography session, then please get in touch! x

Baby Jacob and his big brothers!

Happy New Year everyone!

Baby Jacob arrived just before Christmas, so as soon as the Turkey had all been eaten, I jumped in my car and sped all the way up to Nottingham to meet this little guy and his big brothers for their newborn home shoot! Of course this is a little further than I usually travel (I’m in Harlow, Essex!) but I made an exception being as these beautiful boys belong to one of my close friends and I just couldn’t wait to meet the newest arrival!

I had an extra special shoot and took so many lovely pictures of this handsome guy, but this has to be one of my favourites! They look so peaceful here, but I can still remember their little giggles as I asked them to close their eyes and think of their favourite things…..can you guess???? Sausages!!! Ha ha!:-)

Last Newborn Session before Christmas! Samuel 5 days new!

This little guy was my last shoot in 2014 and what a cracker it was!

I’ve been dying to try a shot like the police hat one below, so when I visited this little guy for his newborn shoot and Daddy was in the police, I was so excited! I absolutely love this image and little Samuel (5 days old!) inside it! Please do be aware though that this baby was supported at all times, I’m just very clever in photoshop! (newborn safety at all times!!)

Of course, being as he was a Christmas baby too, we had to bring some Christmas spirit into the shoot and he absolutely rocked the Christmas pudding hat!

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! xx
