Family Photographer in Wandsworth Common

I had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful family amongst the burnt grasses and wild clover of Wandsworth Common just three days before their baby turned one. It's a very special honour to be invited to spend time with a family, to capture their love and connection and to give them heirloom images that they'll treasure forever. Wandsworth Common is an amazing location for a family photoshoot - it's wild and open and has a rustic charm to it plus it's large enough to head off the beaten track and find some secret spots where your kids can roam free.

If you're interested in making forever images of your family in one of your favourite spots shoot me an email with any questions you have. My next available bookings are towards the end of September - I cannot believe I'm saying that - it's a wonderful position to be in, but I am already so excited about the magic we can make together in the late summer and early autumn. If you're wanting holiday card pictures, now is the time to reserve your space - let's shoot before the cold sets in.

Natural Mother & Baby outdoor Photoshoot in Richmond Upon Thames

I'd photographed Anastasia with her family when her baby was 3 months old so when she asked to meet up again and do a Mother and baby photoshoot in Richmond Park I jumped at the chance. It was windy and bitter on the morning of the session but she'd wrapped her little one up in layers of wool and the sweetest red socks. Being Russian, Anastasia doesn't feel the cold, I almost fell over when she took off her jacket and while my fingers froze and my nose turned red she looked peaceful and serene snuggling her baby boy. Putting the focus on that special bond between a mother and her child is one of my favourite things about my work. It's so important to capture the mamas who so often get lost in the family albums, choosing to hide behind the lens instead of getting in the pictures themselves. Here are my favourite frames from our morning out in the wild...

Natural Light Newborn Baby Photographer; Kew, London

I'm catching up on some long overdue blog posts, I had an amazing year in 2017 band got to work with some beautiful families across London and Surrey. It's hard to know where to begin getting them all up on my site but I'm starting up with this lovely newborn session featuring baby Penny and her parents in their flat in Kew.

I love shooting people in their own homes. There is something intimate about capturing a family in their cosy space, seeking out some pretty light and documenting the connection between parents and their little ones. If you'd like to find out more about booking a home session for your brood send me a note or give me a call on 07557883079. I'd love to work with 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 ;-)

 

 

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.

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.

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.
