The birth of a child marks a transformative moment in your life.
I remember it well, as labour began, walking into the hospital as husband and wife and within a few hours we became a little family. Your priorities, thoughts and feelings change in an instant, but becoming a mum was the best thing I ever did.
The newborn stage passes so quickly and in just a few weeks your tiny little one will no longer fit so snuggly in your arms, stretching out from their unique cocoon shape and before long they will be attempting to roll over.
They are only this small for such a short time. I remember only too well how quickly those first few weeks pass by, often in a blur from recovering from birth, sleepless nights and endless visitors. For this reason, I waited until my princess was six weeks old before having professional photos, in hindsight, I wish I had them done within the first two weeks and I believe it’s so important to have these moments captured as she had changed so much between week one and six.
You may not feel like visitors or the thought of going out just after you have had a baby, but I can come to you with my mobile studio and set up in your living room, whilst you can relax in the comfort of your own surroundings and enjoying watching me at work, capturing images of your beautiful newborn.
If this is your second child, don’t worry, I love siblings, they can help too if they wish, they may be a budding photographer in the making. Now I have two children I am always adapting situations so we can all be involved and enjoy the activity, they love to take a picture!
As my children are both at school, returning to work had to be something to offer fulfilment. During my maternity leave and the pre-school years, I spent a lot of time visiting playgroups, the Zoo, parks and cafes! If I had a spare moment, I would pick up the camera and learn, trying to establish that work-life balance and share my talent and journey through photography.
It wasn’t until after the birth of my second daughter that my passion for photography really took hold and the compulsive learning began. It was in 2014 that I began my journey in newborn photography.
I still take 1000s of photos on my phone of family life, make handprint pictures and see how high I can push a swing, but I realise those memories are mine and you will have yours. I believe in creating memories through images that would last a lifetime to passed through the generations.
I would absolutely love to be your baby’s first professional photographer, so please put a little time aside and let me help you preserve those fleeting moments for you and your family to cherish forever.
I hope that you enjoy looking at my images as much as I have in creating them.
So, get a coffee, cake or whatever you enjoy, take a minute to look at the rest of my website and I look forward to hearing from you for a chat to discuss how I can make this work for you.
