About Me

l am a wife, mum of four amazing children, and passionate about my photography. l get a huge amount of pleasure from photographing peoples children, as l am preserving precious moments that pass so quickly. Whether a new baby, or your teenager, I'll listen to your ideas, or lead the way so together we get images you will adore. I don't have a studio because I prefer to use natural light where I can. The possibilities are endless, and location shooting is so much fun.

Well, Betty unttered her first ever giggle not long after I arrived! Mum was quite amazed! 
I never just walk in and set up....I connect with the child first, even if they are only 3 months old. I am a new face, and one they need to take in and get used to.
So I began talking to Betty and she giggled away, making me think this shoot would be nothing but giggles and smiles. Ooh how wrong could I be!

Betty soon descended into sleepy mode, and so I told mum it was ok for her to sleep. Within a few minutes of calm rocking Betty was sound asleep, and that's when I was able to get the cute sleepy images.

If there is ones thing I have learned with babies it's that you must not give up....nor apply any pressure......on baby, and more importantly, on mum. 
Baby takes all the cues about what is ok, and what isn't from if mum is stress free, baby will be. 

I make sure mum knows there is no rush, and she can relax to settle baby in her own time. 

Mum really does know best.
