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 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 I would love to hear from you.

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.

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 & 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.
