A Mama & Baby Photoshoot in Shepherds Bush, London

I can't believe I'm only just sharing this session now, almost a year after I shot it. A mother and baby mini session with Line and Liam in their amazing home in Shepherd Bush. It was hot, there was a lot of nursing, cuddling and playfulness, and best of all, a baby in nothing but a nappy, which makes me so happy. 

I love capturing one on one sessions with my mother and baby shoots. If you're interested in booking a session like this one drop me a note, I have a couple of spaces left for August ripe for the picking.

Newborn Baby & Family Photographer, Earlsfield, Wandsworth, London

I'm catching up on blogging some of the beautiful sessions I've had over the past few months starting off with this family photoshoot with baby Kitty at her home in Earlsfield, in Wandsworth. 

I really love home sessions like this one because they feel so relaxed and natural. Whilst I'm based in West London and do a lot of my work here, I'm always happy to travel too. If you'd like to find out more about booking a home session with me, whether it's a maternity, newborn or family photographer you're looking for, drop me a note. I'd love to work with you.

Newborn Photographer, Ealing, London

Florence was about 4 weeks old when I visited her and her family at their flat in Ealing for her newborn shoot. She was a little unsettled that morning wanting to be held and cuddled and rooting to feed lots. People often worry that if they're newborn is unsettled during a shoot then their photos won't work out, but I love the connection and intimacy you get when a baby is being craddled, comforted and soothed. I also love that shoots like this tell a really honest story of these early days. Life is not about perfectly swaddled babies lying in a nest prop, I want to show you the real moments, the ones that take you right back to this season in your life. To remind you what an intensely powerful time this is and how selfless and bonding and love led and life affirming, becoming a mother or father is. I think this shoot does just that.

Whilst I'm based in Richmond-Upon-Thames, I work all over London and beyond. I'm happy to travel if you're excited about having me and my eye capture you and your loves. If you'd like to find out more about booking a home or location session with me, whether it's a newborn photographer you're looking for or a maternity or family photographer, do drop me a note. I'd love to work with you.

Family Photographer Richmond-Upon-Thames

I can't believe I haven't shared this shoot before now because it's one of my favourite family sessions of last year. I'd photographed Serevine and her family a year before this shoot at their home in Putney, London. Then last Spring she got back in touch to say she wanted to do another shoot, this time, outdoors in the wilds of Richmond Park.

We met early one evening in May with a picnic and three eager children all ready to explore Richmond Park. The light was soft and pretty and the children climbed trees, blew dandelions and gathered handfuls of long grasses as I shot their session.

This is a family full of love and with a great sense of humour, I can't wait to capture them all again, this Spring, one year on.

I really love shooting in beautiful London locations like Richmond Park. Late Spring is a magical time for photoshoots and taking a picnic for an early evening session means you get a relaxed and informal collection of images during the golden hour.  Whilst I'm based in Richmond and do most of my work on location in the park here, I'm always happy to travel too to other wild and beautiful spots. If you'd like to find out more about booking a shoot with me, whether it's a family photographer you're looking for or you're interested in capturing your pregnancy or newborn, drop me a note. I'd love to work with you.

Maternity Photographer; Richmond-Upon-Thames

Mireille wanted natural shots to capture her pregnancy in the wilds of Richmond Park. Whist she lives in Hampstead Heath, Mireille came down to visit me in Richmond, and together we walked through the long grasses and across the meadows, stopping every so often for me to capture her in a gentle and peaceful way.

I'm in awe of what women are capable of, how strong our bodies are and how focused we can be when awaiting the unknowns of labour, birth and beyond. And I love the anticipation and excitement in maternity photography, it is such a fleeting part of our journey as mothers and so rarely do we take the time to celebrate what we are capable of through images.

Documenting the journey from inside to outside the womb is truly the greatest gift and I was very lucky to capture Mireille after her baby had arrived with a newborn shoot. I'll share her newborn shots soon but for now, here are some of my favourites from her Maternity session.

Whilst I'm based in Richmond-Upon-Thames, I work all over London and beyond. I'm happy to travel if you're excited about having me and my eye capture you and your loves. If you'd like to find out more about booking a home or location session with me, whether it's a maternity and pregnancy photographer you're looking for or you're interested in birth, newborn or family photography, do drop me a note. I'd love to work with you.

Family Photographer at Home in Richmond-Upon-Thames

I spent the morning with this lovely family in Richmond-Upon-Thames for a relaxed and informal family photoshoot with their one year old baby daughter in their home and garden.

I love shooting in client's homes across London and beyond. There is something intimate and understated about capturing a family in their own environment.  If you'd like to find out more about booking a home session for your brood send me a note. I'd love to work with you.

Mama & Baby Photographer in Richmond-Upon-Thames

So many mothers miss out on getting in the picture with their baby or kids. They hide behind the camera instead and rarely make their way into the family albums. My mother and baby mini photoshoots are designed to capture the amazing bond between a mother and her child, and to make these women feel special, valued and important enough to make it into the frame.

I offer a limited number of my mama & baby shoots each month and on occasion, if it works best for my client, I invite them into my home to have the shoot here where they can relax and enjoy being on the other side of the lens a little while.

Polly and Walter came to my home a few weeks back and the photographs we made together that morning really make me smile. Such bright blue eyes Walt has and such a sweet bond they both enjoy. Here are a few of my favourites.

Newborn Photography At home in Wandsworth

I'm pretty sure I'd have had ten babies by now if I didn't get to do this for a living. Meeting new families welcoming new life week in week out gives me my fix of 'newborness' and I literally never tire of it. Life in those first couple of weeks, (well months), is messy, chaotic, full of uncertainties and very different to the life we know before we become parents. There is something so precious about capturing this time for people. Perhaps because I know only too well how fleeting it is, and how one day, these new parents will look back in wonder at how tiny their most precious being could have been.

Here is baby Arthur just shy of two weeks old and about as scrumptious as could be.

If you are expecting a baby and would like to chat about booking in a newborn shoot, I would love to hear from you. You can contact me on hello@littlekin.co.uk or drop me a note here

Family & Baby Photographer in Richmond Park, Richmond-Upon-Thames

The majority of the shoots I do for client's outdoors are set within Richmond Park in the pretty pocket of London, Richmond-Upon-Thames. It's not just because it is local to me that I love to shoot there. It's because there are so many hidden corners to get lost in and ample space to loose the rest of the world for a while and find a quiet spot to relax and just be. Children seem to feel at home when they are surrounded by nature. Simplicity, it seems, is both calming and familiar to little ones, and with acres to explore within the park itself and the fact it is left wild in so many places rather than manicured like many other London Parks, there is always something to see, animals to spot and open space to explore.

This peaceful family photoshoot with baby Ernest and his parents was one very bright and hot morning in August. I was worried it would be too hot for a baby and too bright for me to get really great shots but we found a beautiful shady tree to curl up under, and the rest of the magic this family conjured up themselves.

My favourite kinds of photoshoots are the ones where people let themselves forget I am there for most of it and allow me to be an observer of their time together. That is always when I find myself catching the purest of emotions, the most intense chemistry and the true spirit of a family.

If you'd like to me to capture you and your baby or family, either in Richmond Park or elsewhere in London or Surrey, please get in touch. I would love to hear from you.

Holly & Jay, Family Photoshoot in Richmond-Upon-Thames, London

Holly and Jay got in touch back in the Spring to ask about a family shoot with their one year old daughter and their loveable puggle Snoop (a Pug, Beagle cross breed). 

On the day of their session the wind roared and it poured with rain but we braved the elements determined to capture them all come rain or shine. We headed to Petersham Meadows just outside Richmond Upon Thames, making the most of the breaks in wet weather and giggling over the mud, cow pats and puddles. I love their shoot so much, their devotion to this little girl was incredible to see and their good sense of humour despite natures attempts to dampen things really warmed me to them. As we wrapped things up and headed back to our cars we realised a herd of cows had decided to barricade us into the field. Some quick moves from snoop and we managed to escape in tact. 

Here are my favourites from their shoot.

If you'd like to book me for a family session, do get in touch, I'd love to hear from you. Your pets are most welcome to come along too!
