An action shot of the ice bucket in action at the photoshoot I did at The Beauty Shed yesterday. I loved capturing images of the secret spa complete with outdoor hot tub & sauna, this beauty retreat is a little gem of a place, and I tried one of their hot stone massages last week and will be returning for more. The staff are welcoming & friendly - a beautiful place to relax & pamper.
This little one was a little star during her session, she started off awake for her session which is great as I captured her with her eyes open, then after a nice big feed of milk she drifted off to sleep ready for her sleepy & curly poses.
I used my new backdrop, which I think complimented her complexion, and the colours were nice and girly.
Not all newborn sessions go as smoothly as this one did, sometimes baby needs soothing and feeding or changing, that is why there is no strict time limit. I work with your baby with his/her needs, and follow their lead. My sessions always allow plenty of time for feeding and cuddling to ensure baby is happy through out their session.
I love working with these colours!
We finished her session with a 'prop' shot, and she rocked the bucket so well. :-)

I take advanced bookings - to guarantee you a slot (as babies rarely arrive on their due dates I can only allocate a limited number of newborns in my diary per month)
New for 2016 is our fantastic 'New Beginning's Collection'
This collection covers your little one's first year with three separate photo shoots.
The first sitting cover's the important newborn stage in the first two week's of life, capturing the fine details of your tiny baby. (Should you have missed the newborn session, this will be replaced by a 3 month baby session)
Then following on will be our 'Little Sitter's Session' this milestone is when your baby can sit un-aided before they start to crawl. Expressions, laughter & cheekiness of your babies personality are captured.
Finally we finish off with a 12 month session when he/she can stand which shows your babies progression through the year - this session can also be upgraded to a cake smash to celebrate becoming your child's first birthday.
* this is not a photo of the actual frame
At the end of each session when you get to see your photo's for the first time you will pick one image from each session. You are welcome to purchase additional images from each of the sessions too.
After the final sitting, you will then receive your 'Triple Frame' featuring three images - showcasing your babies first year.

Smash & Splash is a new adaptation from the Cake Smash.
For those not sure what exactly is a cake smash;
A cake smash is a fun filled birthday shoot involving lots of messy play with a giant sticky cup cake!
The child then has lots of fun eating and playing with the cake whilst having a photoshoot.
These sessions are just as popular as my newborn sessions, and many of my mini client's book in their Cake Smash to celebrate their 1st birthday. I love these session's they are so much fun.
This is my vintage floor & wall set up, complete with the handmade cake smash out fit. Bunting & balloons can be added if you wish.
This set up is a more colourful with the purples and pinks!
Now, once your little one has finished with the cake we then set up for the splash!
Children at this age all love bath time and bubbles, which makes this the ideal clean up after a fun smash whilst having the mini shoot in the tub.
The smash comes complete with a giant store bought cupcake, although you are more than welcome to provide your own cake to make your shoot much more unique!
