Beau had her newborn photo's taken, and it was a rocky start. We cuddled and settled her with milk, and nappy changes. She was not for sleeping. Any way after a little cry, and top up of milk, she slept, and when I mean slept, she was so sleepy we managed a whole variety of difficult poses! She was a dream.
Newborn session's are not how most people see them as being, not just a few quick snaps. They take time, talent and planning, and sometimes things don't always go to plan. I am patient, and have a lot of patience when photographing newborns, after all they are just little people after all. I listen to my newborns, they dictate the session, not me.
Sometimes when they are not settling straight away, I see parents getting very stressed or anxious - don't be, they will eventually fall asleep, and I will work my magic. If not and I think baby is getting anxious too, I will re-schedule, sometimes babies suffer from tummy aches, and no one would like to be posed with a tummy ache, I know I wouldn't.
Little Beau's gallery is full of beautiful poses, and variety of shots, and that's because we kept calm, and carried on. Her shoot took me around 5 hours, which is a little longer than normal, but so worth it for these results!
Specialist photographer's will take their time to get the shots, and will not clock watch at all. I hope you liked my sneak peek of Beau's gallery, and a little blog about what to expect from a newborn session.
I take bookings from as early as your 20 week scan, this ensures you are guaranteed a slot, and avoids disappointment.
Keep checking back for more photo's, news and updates.

Pre-wedding sessions are a lot of fun, and not only do they help you become more comfortable with your photographer, they also double up as fantastic ways to create your own 'save the date' cards/invitations and create beautiful signing boards & frames for your guests to sign at the reception.
Outdoor locations always provide the best results for your shoot, especially if this is where he proposed, or the place itself has a special meaning to you both.
As a wedding photographer I often hear "I hate my photo being taken" from Brides & Groom's to be, or "I am camera shy" the pre-wedding session helps you over come this sage fright, and we will work together to find poses which work best for you. You will also have an idea how I work, and interact with my clients to make you feel more comfortable on your big day.
Creating lasting memories, I provide stunning signing books & frames for you to display at your special day.
Pre-wedding sessions can also become engagement sessions, maybe you want to announce your engagement in style, or maybe you would want me to photograph the actual proposal.
Please do not hesitate to get intouch with your ideas. To see more pre wedding sessions, please visit my gallery.
