A beautiful in home newborn session for you today - Meet Evie and her parents whom I visited at their home in Egham last month to capture Evie's very first photographs when she was just days old.

The light in December is notoriously unpredictable - bright, sunny skies can give way to darkness in a matter of minutes as the clouds roll over, and on some (unlucky) days the light doesn't even make an a...

Hello lovelies, I have a gorgeous newborn session to share with you today!

This was my second visit to this family, having first met them a few weeks ago for their maternity photoshoot which you can see here

And guess what, beautiful bump is now a beautiful baby girl! She was brilliant for her shoot which took place when she was 11 days new. We'd had to reschedule the shoot by a couple of days...

Living where I do, I meet a lot of families who for whatever reason ask me to exercise confidentiality over their images - many of these families are in the public eye but for some it's just a preference not to share images of their children online.

It's a really personal thing. Whatever the reasons, I will always honour the wishes of  my clients -  They come first....

I was so delighted to be asked back to visit this family at their home in Milford, Godalming to capture Sebastian's newborn photographs for him. I say for him, because actually that's what we're doing here - creating beautiful family images that he'll treasure when he's older. 

Obviously it's for the rest of the family too, but I always keep the little people at the forefront of my mind when shooti...

Hard to believe considering last week's weather but apparently spring is just around the corner (albeit a bit delayed by the beast from the east)

I’m now booking my photography sessions into May, so please get in touch early to avoid disappointment. This is especially relevant if you are hoping for a newborn shoot with me - due to the extra flexibility I need in my diary with newborn photograp...

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... :)

Now, it's invariably mummies that seek me out and make a booking for a newborn or baby photography shoot, so I'll refer to 'him' in this post, but this is equally applicable if you have a...



Think you've left it too late to book your newborn photography shoot..?  You may not have! It's always worth contacting me to check if I have any availability.

It's best to book at least 3 months in advance of your due date to be able to ensure that I can fit you in, but I understand that for many mummies and daddies-to-be, newborn photography isn...

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.

I recognise that as a small business, it's through the kind endorsement and support of my clients just like you that I will grow and flourish. And so by way of a thank you, in 2018 I am introducing my newborn & baby photography referral...

A natural in-home newborn shoot in Wimbledon Village.

This little chap was super relaxed and sleepy for me, which is not always the case. In fact, sometimes newborns don't settle at all, but we go with it and it just means that we get lots more snuggly and babe-in-arms shots.

I love in-home photography because it gives you time to step back and take stock, spend some quiet time together as a family...
