Wow, how are we half way through January already?!

The Christmas tree has been packed away, new gifts have found a home, I have welcomed 2018, ate double my weight in chocolate, waved the children back to school and I am now officially back to work.

It was so lovely meeting so many new people in 2017. Some couples became a family, some families added one (or two!) more and I got to capture some fantastic moments that will last a lifetime.

I've just found out that I'm pregnant, when should I book my newborn photo shoot?

It is never too early to book in for your photo shoot with us however I would recommend doing so after your 20 week scan. Your booking is made based on your due date. This isn't the date that your photoshoot must take place but it provides a guideline for me of when your baby will arrive. I only book a limited amount of due dates each month to ensure that I can fit everyone in for their photoshoot whilst baby is still very new and sleepy. Once your baby is born I ask you to contact me so that we can arrange a suitable date for your session and discuss the details for this.

You can book your session online here. Simply message me via the contact tab or at j...

When photographing newborn babies, safety is the most important thing and with me your baby will always be in safe hands. To ensure this here are some of the rule that I have in place during my session....

- Baby is never, ever left unattended.

- Parents/spotters are always kept close to baby

- No baby is ever forced in to a pose. All babies are different and will always be in a position that they are comfortable.

- My camera strap will always be around my neck when shooting from above.

- Certain poses, such as the one above as ALWAYS done as a composite and parents/spotters are edited out in Photoshop.
