When you start a family, there is so much to think of in anticipation of that new baby bundle of joy steam rolling over everything you once new to be stable and secure. Not only do these tiny little additions come with so much ‘stuff’ but they change the way you live. There will now be limited trips to the cinema, the big shop will now be done online and lazy weekends chilling with friends in the latest gin bar in town will be swapped for play centres, kids parties and early nights, for everyone! Now don’t get me wrong, I love an early night and there is so much food left over from a kids party, your can fill your boots!
When you have a new little life to look after, I also feel you need to open your arms and welcome a great photographer into your lives too. There will be so many milestones along the way, you must, absolutely, definitely capture them.
I love photographing families and their little additions, no matter how old they are. I have 2 young children myself, so I have great practice and patience. I love building up a connection with the little ones that come into my studio and having a chat. Some are quite shy at first, but they soon get chatty!
How do I prepare for my Photo-shoot? Is a question I get asked quite often. I am more than happy to help you and put you at ease. I want you to have a great experience and enjoy every minute when you’re in the studio. You might want help with outfits if you’ve booked a family portrait session in the studio or out on location, or you might be worrying about how to prepare for your newborn shoot when you’ve just become a new mum.
Well, I have lots of information for all of you to ensure you have a great experience. Before your session I send you an email containing everything you need to bring with you on the day and for Newborn sessions anything that you can do to prepare before you leave the house. It really will make all the difference to your sessions. Usually at the top of the list is snacks and drinks for your children. It’s tiring work having your photo taken!
