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.

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 ;-)

 

 

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.

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 ;-)

My favourites of you { 2 0 1 5 } Baby and Family photography in and across London

2015 went in the blink of an eye. I got to meet and photograph so many wonderful families and babies, a magical winter wedding party, capture blossoming bumps and new mamas and papas, cuddle lots and lots of sweet babies and shoot the most beautiful midsummer wedding. 

I am so grateful to all of you who chose me to preserve some of your memories last year and I'm looking forward to seeing what magic we can capture together in 2016.

It was almost impossible to choose my favourites from last year but here are a handful, every single one of these images brings a smile to my face.

Thank you, really, thank you! xo
