Natural Newborn Photographer, Putney London

I'm catching up on some long overdue blogs sharing some of my work from the past few months. It's a wonderful thing to be busy photographing families and new babies but it often means publishing my work here gets put to the bottom of the list.

I loved this shoot, the moody light, those little toes, fresh belly button and delicate newborn features and the gentle way his parents are holding him. It's hard to believe this baby boy is one and a half already and I've photographed him since earlier this year in the Spring sunshine. 

If you're expecting a baby and are looking for a newborn photographer to capture those early days with a relaxed session at home in London or Surrey please drop me an email hello@littlekin.co.uk I would love to hear from you.

Newborn Photographer At home in Wandsworth, London

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

Creative Newborn Photographer, Victoria Park, London

As newborn lifestyle shoots go, this one is right up there in my memory bank of keepers.

I find the bigger a family is, the more colourful and flamboyant the shoot. I loved the light and quirks in this house. The way each family member had their turn holding teeny tiny Darcy close and sitting for me to take their portraits with her.  Whilst those images were more traditional portraits, I love how each is unique reflecting the personalities of each family member.

In between the moments of calm there was a lot of life in this session - inevitable with 2 older kiddos darting about the room. I really like that sense of movement, after all life with kids is messy.

The result of our time together is a higgeldy piggeldy collection of images full of light, love and playfulness. Just as all good family sessions should be ;-)

 

 

Bohemian Maternity & Pregnancy Photographer in Richmond, London

Somehow Rachel makes pregnancy look like the most beautiful, peaceful, joyful thing in the world. Probably because it really is such an incredible, empowering experience to go through as a woman but also because, let's face it, she totally rocked this vintage dress and showed off her bump to perfection in the photos. I can't wait to revisit her in the springtime and capture her little one. I have a few more images from this session with Rachel and her daughter at their home which I will share later this week so watch this space... I really love photographing pregnancy. Maternity sessions have an intimacy and a vulnerability about them that I adore. There is something very special about awaiting the arrival of a little one, and about the metamorphosis we, as women, go through as we bloom and blossom.

Mother & Baby Photographer 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
