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.

Juno's Newborn Photoshoot: Richmond, West London

My brother in law put me in touch with his friend, Chloe after she had a baby. She lived down the road from me and he thought she might like some photos taken of the early days. Deep down I think he just knew we'd click. And we did, straight away!

I arrived at her home early one morning to a warm welcome from their beautiful labradoodle Lottie. We chatted over a cup of tea about baby stuff and the craziness of those first few weeks as a mum. She was breezy and happy and one of the most laid back new mother's I think I've ever met. Her partner Dan was equally unfazed by my being there and willingly filled a bowl full of cadburys mini eggs for us to nibble on during the shoot.

Juno was wide awake when I started photographing them and content to kick her little legs about in their sun filled bedroom. Their old victorian house was full of charm, colour and character. Chloe works in interiors and there was evidence of her impeccable taste in every room.

As with all the best shoots, Chloe and Dan's chemistry was palpable and they doted on their daughter, gently stroking her cheek, nuzzling her nose and pausing for feeds here and there when she needed soothing.

The pictures we made together make me so happy. Happy because I really feel I captured them just as they are, and happy because they put their trust in me and my vision. Even Lottie made it into their family portrait, curled up on the sofa, (where she isn't usually allowed to nestle), keeping a watchful eye over her newest friend Juniper

Baby Genevive: Chelsea and Kensington Newborn Baby Photography

It was lovely to spend some time with this adorable American family living in London and photograph them with their newborn baby girl, Genevive.  I love photographing newborns and babies because of the tenderness between parent and baby and because I get to sneak a few tiny baby snuggles in. I arrived at their home in Kensington to find baby Genevive snuggled up in her moses basket. She was calm and content throughout our photoshoot and the resulting pictures I feel really capture the happiness of this new family ;-)
