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.

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.

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.
