Make 2018 the year to capture your family photographs. If you REALLY want to have an in-home or on-location newborn, baby or family shoot but have a reluctant partner, here are a few ways of convincing them... :)

NEW FOR 2018

I love my clients and consider myself very lucky indeed to be able to work with so many lovely families across Surrey and SW London.

A little preview for you this morning of this beautiful boy's baby photography session along with his big sister at their home in Sutton. It was my second visit to the family and it was a delight to be welcomed back to meet Reuben and to see how Abby has blossomed into such a beautiful young girl. We had lots of fun singing and cuddling on the bed, breaks for snoozing and snacks (obviously!), foll...
