I love taking photos of newborn babies at their home. Birth dates are, of course, pretty unpredicatable, so book me and tell me your due date and I’ll try my best to accommodate your little arrival when they decide to turn up! The best time for classic newborn photos is in the first 10 days after birth before they lose that lovely curled up look, but we can of course get some nice images at any time. Sessions normally last an hour, but I’ll stay for longer if your baby is enjoying himself! And of course, if when the time comes you don’t feel up to having some photos done we can always reschedule e.g. for some first birthday photos. Check out newborn shoots here.
Families and children
I offer 1 hour photography sessions in your home (within half and hour of Wandsworth), my home (Wandsworth) or on location (e.g. in your favourite park) to capture spontaneous, fun pictures of your babies/children at play (and you too, if you want to be included). Between us we can work out a good venue – for babies a simple double bed with a white duvet cover often works well (I tend to get in close and work with a narrow depth of field so the background isn’t hugely important), whilst your garden or a local park provides the space to run/toddle around for older toddlers and children. As with my wedding photography, I aim to be as unobtrusive as possible. I might give a little direction if required, but there’ll be no forced, unnatural poses, and certainly no dodgy false library backgrounds like in my old school portraits! Note that during the wedding season weekend appointments are quite limited, and often restricted to the Wandsworth area but get in touch and I can see if I can fit you in.
