PORTFOLIO

“You have captured memories we will treasure forever, thank you so so much”

“Becoming a parent for the first time is amazing. It’s crazy beautiful.”

Becoming a parent for the first time is amazing. It’s crazy beautiful. Having these tiny people to love, look at, nurture, hold, kiss, cuddle. Stare at. You tend to do a lot that with them.
I was primarily a wedding photographer. I’ve always documented families and newborns as well, but since becoming a mum and having my own little love to dote on, documenting newborns has become so much more. It’s become essential. Something I need to do. I find myself walking a tightrope balance of living in the moment and trying to document it all.
WHEN I’M NOT PHOTOGRAPHING A NEWBORN OR A GORGEOUS COUPLE, YOU’LL LIKELY FIND ME HANGING AT HOME IN LEEDS WITH MY HUSBAND JIM, SON EZRA AND OUR SWEET CAT, GEPETTO.

What Makes a

Good

SHOOT

No.1

Don’t stress the little things.

If your baby/children are not playing ball – don’t worry. They will soon warm up for the shoot. Feeds and change can be done as needed.

No.2

Think about your wardrobe

Try avoiding visible logos & think colours that compliment rather than are matchy matchy and wear something that is comfortable and that also makes you feel good. Same goes with the little ones.

No.3

Prep the room

If your session is at home keep the rooms with the most light as clean and minimal as possible. We’ll most likely be using nursery and parents room for newborns, but it’s always great to have more options to choose from.

No.4

Think about your time of day for booking.

It’s harder to know a routine with newborns as there generally isn’t one. But, for older children think about food/nap times and absolutely feel free to bring snacks & toys – AKA bribes!

No.5

Keep it Natural

Avoid asking little ones to look at the camera and smile. Half the time when they’re made to do it, it isn’t the smile you see on them that you love and it makes them get bored pretty fast.
