Little lucah

A little look at a session from my home studio in Mapleton. For some people the option of coming to my home studio makes things much easier. I have lots of space, my home is relaxed and holds lots of options for creating a very varied gallery for your portrait images.

I create a gallery of both natural and studio lit images. Spending a large amount of time capturing the minimal white solo images of your baby, and then as baby allows capturing some more poses and changes in looks.

In my sessions I try and create minimal imagery, whilst still capturing the whimsical and romantic when I can.

Shooting in my home studio, I am able to accomodate many family members, and can capture those studio shots, with high level edited images, and all the best equipment and knowlege a professional studio supplies, but in a setting that is more relaxed, which is often reflected in the serene expressions of my clients portraits.

All necessary blankets, wraps, bonnets, flowers and props are supplied. So all that is needed to bring for your session is your own clothing (although you are welcome to ask about studio wardrobe options if you want something a little glamorous), and nappies.

Im often booked up 2-3 months in advance, so if you’re thinking about booking in a newborn session, or taking advantage of my great package deals, which include 2 session booking package deal , and 3 sessions in 1 year package deal, please contact me asap.

lifestyle newborn session - home visit

In home visit, in a lifestyle fashion is simply you and your baby in your home. I shoot these images in a documentary shooting style, simply posed and guided, and simply edited. We arrange a time of day that is best suited for your family, and we record the various activities of your day in your home. Visiting the spaces of your home that you feel you'd love to be captured and remembered, as a precious time with your newborn baby. 

The lifestyle session is far more minimal than a portrait newborn session, in terms of being non-intrusive to your day or home. There are no props, or need to move furniture, posing is minimal, and it takes about 90 minutes. 

I'm very relaxed with how I record these images, and we simply talk quietly as you go about being with your baby.

Your little baby is captured in their own clothing, in their cot, unposed, showing their natural manerisms. 

Simple portraits are captured having those precious cuddles, and nursing.

Capturing all their tiny details, in a warm secure familiar space. Natural, beautiful images.

These moments of the first few weeks, where your baby is so tiny in your arms, where they sleep all the time, will change so quickly, where life will become so busy, this time of just being together in a nursing/ bonding phase is so precious, so wonderful to have images of forever.

I only take on a few clients per month, so to avoid disappointment contact me to book your newborn session as early as you can, to make sure you get the session you really want. 

Immy and Kendall's fine art session

A special time for a Mummy and Me session is a gift to yourself and your child, that will be treasured and remembered for always. I wanted to create a magical session with Immy and Kendall, showing their sweet natures, and simple beauty. Alot of the props in this session come from Immy's collection of saved gems. I find alot of my clients have special little items that work in so well with my style, I love to use them in the shoot, as it becomes very personal.

Capturing your child's innocence and beauty.

Dressing up is a part of the fun of the session, the child is engaged because their imagination is stimulated. I love creating simple styles, where one or two items are used, and the portrait focuses on the simple elements, and the child's whimsical expressions, and cute little features.

Some stunning portraits showing the beautiful connection between mother and child is an absolute honor. When I take these images, I have in mind creating a portrait as a large print on the family wall, which stands out as special and timeless. 

I have a background in fashion and beauty photography, so Im always looking to take some beautiful portraits of the mum in the session. I think its a beautiful gift for the parent to be witnessed in a beautiful light, and is an invaluable lesson for the child to see their mother as beautiful and willing to be seen as so. 

I love to set up a styled session, taking inspiration from old master painters. A connection and referral to simpler times, where beautiful objects and artworks of still lifes were decadent and moody.

I love capturing a simple and understated portrait, where the child is natural, and doesnt have to put on a big cheesy grin. Capturing their neutral expressions, lets those subtle expressions and thoughts in the eyes emerge.

Contact me today to plan your next fine art children's session, and experience this special session for yourself.

A special gift for Indie

Indie is a beautiful little girl just celebrating her 5th birthday. Sadly Indie was diagnosed with Infantile Neuroaxonal Dystrophy which is a degenerative disorder that affects the brain and nervous system. Life expectancy is very short. As a special gift to her and her family I was asked to help create some magical images that this lovely family could treasure.

I wanted to give them some special images, that would last forever, but also I wanted to make the experience a special morning of feeling cared for and loved, and would celebrate their love as a family. What better way than to lie down in a bed of roses, on a soft fur! 

Indie was so beautiful and peaceful as she lay there and I surrounded her with red velvety roses and petals, and she quietly watched. 

Her mother is experiencing the most hardest of challenges, facing all that she is. She is looking after Indie on her own, not an easy task as Indie is quite paralyzed,  and looking after her little 2 year old aswell. I was deeply affected by her peace and strength.
