Musings of a professional newborn, baby and child photographer in South London

Newborn and family photographer in Wandsworth, South West London
14th February 2015
I met the most gorgeous family at the beginning of February for a newborn and family photography session in Wandsworth, South West London. Baby Hannah was 4 weeks old and such an alert little newborn, didn't want to sleep but was super chilled. Her brothers, 4-year old Ben and 2-year old Matty, were such angels and did exactly what I asked them to, which is unusual for toddlers of that age. I was worried I wouldn't be able to get pictures with all three children in, but as you can see from the family photos below they turned out beautifully :-)

Newborn baby photography session in Kensington, West London - Jet's session
30th January 2015
I met 9-day old Jet at a newborn baby photography session in Kensington, West London this week. He was such an angelic little baby, and so beautiful with a mum from America and dad from Hong Kong. He gave me the most amazing smile as well… I think it was because he loved his cute newborn hat from Jelly Baby Hats. I love the little baby booties knitted by granny too.… aren't Jet's photos gorgeous :-)

Newborn baby photography session in Camberwell, South London - black and white photos
24th January 2015
This week has been a busy one for me as a newborn baby photographer! I met the gorgeous 12-day old Ted at his newborn baby photography session in Camberwell, South East London. His mummy and daddy wanted black and white photos - below are my favourite images. Ted was such a sweetie and even managed to give me a big smile. Look at those dimples :-) Mummy didn't want to be in any photos so I captured some of daddy and baby instead - I absolutely love their connection, so sweet!

Newborn baby photography session in Clapham, South London - tiny details
22nd January 2015
As a newborn baby photographer it is important to capture the tiny newborn baby features such as hands, feet, lips, eyelashes as well as face images and full body photos. Last week I met the beautiful 20-day old Emilia in Clapham, South London for her newborn baby photography session. I love these close-up pictures on my new fluffy pink blanket.

Emilia's mummy has booked my Watch me Grow Package so I am looking forward to meeting her at her next baby photography session at 6 months. Maybe if the weather is nice I can take her photos on Clapham Common :-)

Professional baby photographer in London - Watch me Grow Package
20th December 2014
One of the packages I offer as a professional baby photographer in London is the Watch Me Grow Package, where the family get three photography sessions over the first year of their baby's life. This is generally a newborn photography session, followed by one at six months (my favourite time to photograph babies) and one at a year. Medina is one such baby whose parents bought this package. Below are my favourite pictures from her one-year baby photography session in London last week. I totally love her blue dress :-)

9 month old baby photography session in Kingston, Surrey - Tami's session
15th December 2014
I recently met 9 month old Tami at a baby photography session in Kingston, Surrey. Now this is not my favourite age of babies to photograph, as they do not stop moving around…. I much prefer to photograph babies at 6 or 7 months when they are sitting up unaided, can do tummy time and smile on demand. Saying that Tami was a gorgeous baby to photograph, his poor mum just kept having to run around the bed to catch him every few minutes as he tried to launch himself onto the floor!! I love the pictures below, I really think they show off his personality, don't you?

Newborn baby photographer in Fulham, South London - Fran's session
14th December 2014
Last week I went to a newborn baby photography session in Fulham, South London with the beautiful 6-day old Francesca and her 2-year old sister Hazel. I have met the family three times previously when I did Hazel's newborn, 6-month and 1-year baby photography sessions as part of my Watch Me Grow Package. This time I was there as a newborn baby photographer to take images of her little sister, as well as to capture some sibling and family portraits. Fran was a super good newborn and slept soundly for the whole session. Hazel was an equally well-behaved child especially when I asked her to lie still so I could place Fran on her chest. She loved that as you can see from the photos below!! I especially love newborn baby photos in black and white, especially when the newborn has a touch of jaundice like Fran did ;-)

Family photographer in Balham, South West London - Maya and Amber
10th December 2014
As a professional family photographer, I know that 18-month old toddlers can be difficult to take photos of, as they don't like sitting still for very long or looking at the camera, but the beautiful Maya was very different as you can see from the pictures below. At the baby and family photography session in Balham, South West London she was a dream to work with, as was her newborn baby sister Amber. She posed so nicely for the sibling shots and was very easy to make laugh. Amber slept really well and was happy to be manipulated into those cute newborn baby poses I love so much. Aren't the photos gorgeous?

Baby photographer in Battersea, South West London - Vivienne's session
07th December 2014
I met 5-week old Vivienne last week at a baby photography session in Battersea, South West London. 5-weeks is too old for the traditional curled up, sleepy newborn poses but too young for tummy time or sitting the baby up. As the only option in photographing babies of this age is to lay them down on the bed, the best way to get a variety of photos is to mix up the outfits, take nappy shots and use accessories such as the cute hat Vivienne is wearing in the picture below. If you want to purchase such a hat, click Jelly Baby Hats.

Baby photographer in Chelsea, South West London - Amelia's session
05th December 2014
One of the many questions I get asked as a newborn & baby photographer is whether at 9 weeks old a child is a newborn or a baby? Parents still think of their little one as a newborn, but in photography terms they have gone past that cute, curled up newborn stage and are definitely considered a baby. This means that the photos I get are generally of the baby awake… but sometimes I can be lucky and also get some sleeping pictures, as with Amelia at her baby photography session in Chelsea, South West London last week. Isn't she just adorable?

Baby photographer in Wandsworth, South West London - Sasha's session
01st December 2014
My last baby photography session of November was in Wandsworth, South West London with 4-month old baby Sasha. Not only was she an absolute cutie with a beautiful smile but her parents were a lot of fun too. Dad was massively into skateboarding and so wanted a photo of his baby girl in a tie-dye babygrow with his treasured skateboard collection. I love my job as a photographer even more when I get to take unusual pictures like this. I know Dad will look on it fondly for many years to come :-)

Professional baby photographer session in South London
27th November 2014
It's been 2 1/2 years since I gave up my career as an accountant to become a professional baby photographer in South London and I have never looked back. I love all my clients but certain babies make me smile more than others. I met 6-month old Oliver at a baby photography session not far from my home in Herne Hill, South London and he was one of the smiliest children I have ever met. He laughed at everything, was such a joy to photograph and the resulting pictures show his personality so well. My favourite is definitely the one of him in the hat, what about you?

Child photographer in East Dulwich, South London
23rd November 2014
I met 4-year old Joshua and 2-year old Abi at a child photography session in East Dulwich, South London on a sunny autumn day. Mum wanted to get some photos of the children to give as Christmas presents. Ooooh I do love being a child photographer when I get to put on my wellies and play with kids in the woods :-) Joshua and Abi were not too keen on posing so I put on my 70-200mm lens and stood way back, capturing photos of them just being themselves. The light was beautiful and the first picture is one of my favourites ever taken outside. What do you think?

Newborn, baby and family photography session in Bexleyheath, South London
16th November 2014
This week I went to Bexleyheath in South London for a newborn, baby and family photography session with 13-day old Remi, her 4-year old sister Emmy and 5-year old brother Archie. Mum was worried about how the older children would behave as they are generally quite shy, and don't always do as they are told!! But they were so good and posed so nicely with their baby sister…. I think the chocolate bribes helped :-) I much prefer the black and white photos from the session to the colour ones, and was so lucky at the end to capture a picture of Remi with a big smile on her face, unusual for a newborn!

Newborn photographer in Battersea, South West London
15th November 2014
I love being a newborn photographer when newborn babies are so well behaved. I photographed Flynn at a newborn, baby and family photography session recently in Battersea, South West London. He was 3-weeks old which is slightly older than the normal age to take newborn photos so I was a little worried. However I needn't have been as he slept and posed so well. Below are 3 of the pictures from the day, all taken from the same pose where Flynn was sleeping on his tummy. It is important to get as many images from one pose before moving the baby in case they wake up and they are the only photos you end up capturing. I love the pictures below, especially on the baby blue background.

Newborn baby photography session in Greenwich, South London
11th November 2014
It has been a busy week for newborn baby photography sessions…. I met the lovely 17-day old Reuben at a photoshoot in Greenwich, South London a few days ago. Reuben is the second newborn baby I have photographed recently who has made me rethink my 5-7 day old ideal age as he slept and posed so well. As it's November I was also able to get my Christmas hats out, yay!! Reuben looks so cute in it don't you think?

Newborn baby photography session in Blackheath, South London
10th November 2014
Last week I went to Blackheath in South London for a newborn baby photography session with the very gorgeous 2-week old Kalvin. Despite being a few days older than the ideal for a newborn baby photography shoot, Kalvin was an angel and slept like a dream. He was also very relaxed when he was awake which made for some amazing photos. Below are some of the family's favourite pictures… what do you think?

Newborn photography session in Forest Hill, South London
08th November 2014
I met the beautiful 3-week old Alexander at a newborn photography session in Forest Hill in South London. I was a little worried about how the photoshoot would go, as newborns are generally best photographed within the first 10 days as they are most flexible then. I needn't have worried as Alex was a dream baby, awake for some of the session but super chilled with it… and sleeping soundly for those cute curled up newborn poses. In fact Alex made me change my mind about older newborns as he was so much easier to placate! His family loved the pictures so much they bought the whole CD :-)

Child photography session in East Dulwich, South London
06th November 2014
I recently got to take some photos of the beautiful 3-year old Felix and his 7-month old brother Fred (cool names huh?!!) at a child photography session in East Dulwich, South London. Both such gorgeous children and Felix had the most amazing curly blond hair - I like to think if I ever had a child that's what they would look like!!! I absolutely love the wall as a blue background for the pictures, as it matches Felix's eyes :-) Oooh it's great to be a child photographer when I get to work with such amazing models!

Family photographer Dulwich, South London
02nd November 2014
I love being a family photographer when I get to meet such amazing and fun families. Recently I went to Dulwich in South London for a baby, child and family photography session with the beautiful 3-year old Henry and his 10-week old brother James. Henry was such a smiley and happy child who loved to play and be thrown around, which made taking the family photos such a joy. I was able to capture some very natural looking pictures as you can see below.
