Something a little different from my usual wedding news today. It has been a long time coming but I have finally branched out into family, maternity and newborn photography!
With my wedding couples going along their journey many of them are starting their own families. It has therefore been a natural progression for my photography. I LOVE IT!
It is such an honour to be invited back by a previous client to photograph this next chapter of their lives. We have of course built up a lovely relationship on the build up to their wedding day so its always fun to catch up over baby cuddles and a cup of tea.
Shooting only with film and not digital for these sessions has been an easy decision for me. My passion for film has been there since day 1. I am one of very few UK photographers who has been trained using film cameras. Film is a much slower way of shooting which I feel is absolutely perfect for newborn photography.
Film lends itself to natural light (as to I!), it creates a luminous, fine art aesthetic which is so hard to replicate with digital. I love to shoot in the comfort of family homes, on location or welcome you to my studio.
About maternity, family and newborn photography sessions.
For maternity and newborn photography I advise either the studio or home settings. This is purely for comfort and convenience. Meaningful locations for you and your family are great for toddler shoots. Especially if your little one is familiar with their surroundings.
Maternity sessions are best scheduled between week 32 – 36 of your journey and take approx 1 hour. Newborn sessions take approx 2 hours (+) to allow for feeds/changing etc. These are best to be scheduled within first 10 days of birth. Please get in touch within 3 days of the baby arriving to schedule your appointment.
