Welcome to the world Florence

I do have to admit … I LOVE my job! I mean, what’s not to love heah? 


But, when you turn up to meet a family for the first time and find this gorgeous little girl sleeping soundly on the sofa, you just know you are in for a great newborn photoshoot.


So let me introduce you to this amazing little sleeping beauty, her name is Florence and she is totally adorable!


My newborn photography shoots have a general pattern, a general flow to describe it better, but in this case I really did let Florence dictate the flow. As she was so fast asleep, it made total sense to use the time for some lovely sleepy shots first rather than disturbing her and potentially upsetting her. Then, as the session progressed we switched things around a little and got to see those beautiful eyes.


I do like to get a mixture of images, with babies awake and asleep, but in all fairness, the babies are the boss and sometimes I just have to go with the flow!


So Holly & Peter have the. most. amazing. house!!!!


It’s full of so many little details and personal touches, it’s obvious that so much love and attention has gone into every room. In fact, I found myself walking round creating my own little Pinterest board in my head! (I am definitely making my children ‘bird cage lamp shades’  ….. hell yes!!!).


These in-home newborn photography sessions are so different to a studio session, and don’t get me wrong, I love the images that these amazing photographers achieve!!!! They are so beautiful!! These shoots are different though, to be able to use your family home as the backdrop of your newborn baby photos adds another depth. Not only are they extremely relaxed, having the bonus of being in the comfort of your own home, but you are also able to look back and see how unbelievably tiny they were at that moment in time and be able to see what their nursery looked like then, how miniature they looked in their cot. These early days fly by so quickly, I believe its a beautiful keepsake to treasure and to look back on for years to come.


(Plus without these in-home newborn session, we wouldn’t have been blessed with the company of their amazingly gorgeous cat Watson ….. in fact thinking back, I do believe Watson may be the secret boss of the family, sat there, keeping an eye on everyone from his own mini teepee!!)


I have to give a massive thank you again to the Phelps family for inviting me into your beautiful home and for letting me photograph your amazing family. You guys are total legends and make newborn parenting look so god damn easy!! Xxx


I have included a few of my favourites from their session, I hope you all enjoy!
