As mothers, we spend so much time caring for our babies and children we very rarely have the opportunity to take things slowly and just be in the moment with them. We are also more likely to be the family memory-maker, far too often behind the camera and never present in the photographs ourselves. My aim is to celebrate the very special connection between you and your baby. Together, we'll create beautiful images that tell the story of your everyday moments and love; photographs you'll both treasure forever. My approach is very organic and natural so that you'll both feel at ease with me and the camera. I won't make you do any awkward posing but what I will do is guide you into the best light and inspire little moments of play, love and connection - and all that happens in between.

A morning with you

Pregnancy is such a special time and a maternity photo shoot will capture the excitement of what is to come and mark this new chapter of your life. I love to work with soft, flattering, natural light in places you hold dear in your heart - it could be in the home you have made for your new family, or outdoors - surrounded by the colours and textures of nature.

The start of a beautiful new chapter

MATERNITY SESSIONS

The experience

Before we meet, we'll chat to discuss the most meaningful place for the session to take place - this could be your home or outdoors in a park in south west London. I only use soft, natural light to achieve honest and unposed photographs. The session will flow organically, providing you with an opportunity to slow the time down and really enjoy the special memories we create. For Motherhood sessions, I will take your child's lead, choosing a time when they are well rested and capture magical moments as they unfold.

YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

The perfect photo for me isn’t of you all looking at the camera with forced smiles, it’s in a tangle of arms and giggles; in the joyful messiness of real life and love. I combine family documentary, lifestyle and classic portraiture to tell the story of who you all are - right now - with a beautiful light and airy aesthetic. 

To put you at ease and document your family in the most honest way, I let my sessions flow organically, always being led by your baby. As a mother, I know how important it is to be patient and calm as a newborn is fed and comforted, or as a toddler slowly sheds her camera shyness. Occasionally, I’ll give some gentle direction to make sure everyone is in the best light and fully at ease, but I’ll also give time to let you all just be yourselves in order to capture spontaneous and meaningful memories as they unfold.

Shoot pricing details

I offer a bespoke experience for all my families; every single shoot is unique - just as every family is. For Motherhood and Maternity sessions, I charge a fee of £125. This covers 45 minutes photo-taking time on the day and also some time in the weeks leading up to your shoot preparing: getting to know you via a consultation and also weather watching. It also includes my time and artistry to create a gallery of beautiful images that tell the story of your motherhood. I will work in a digital dark room to enhance each photograph to the very best professional quality: working on colours, black and whites and any re-touching, if required.

The session fee does not include any of the photographs, printed or as digital copies. You have the freedom to choose from a selection of products and collections. I do not have a minimum spend but as a guide, most of my clients invest a further £450 - £1,500 on a range of beautiful, heirloom-quality, printed and digital products. For further details of my product pricing please order an e-brochure.

more questions

When is the best time to have maternity photos?

The best time to have your maternity photographs is when your bump is well defined but you are still quite comfortable - normally between 30-36 weeks.

I recommend booking the shoot once you've had your 20 week scan as, at that point, you will be given a better idea of your baby's expected arrival date.

Each session is unique and relaxed in order to create a range of beautiful and personal images.

more questions

What should we wear?

Your personal style is who you are so please dress for the photo shoot in a way you feel most comfortable. It's important to look back at the photographs and see you and your children as you actually were all those years ago, rather than people dressed up for the occasion.

If you do want the photographs to have a harmonious aesthetic, you might want to consider the colours and shades of your family's clothes and how they work with the backgrounds we are shooting against. A good and simple rule is to coordinate but not match. For young babies, I prefer simple items like vests but for toddlers and older children, feel free to play around with patterns, layers and accessories. You might also want to avoid brand logos and large slogans which can be distracting.

What if we don't have a picture perfect home

If your home doesn't look like it belongs in the pages of an interiors magazine then please do not let it put you off having an in-home photo shoot. Over the last ten years, I have photographed families in homes of all shapes, sizes and styles of decor - including small basement apartments. I can craft beautiful stories in any home and lighting condition as I believe there is beauty and light everywhere if you look for it. Your home is your safe place and the foundations of your children's memories, so it's the most natural setting for your newborn photo shoot.

If you want a real documentary feel to your images then let's roll with the chaos that is parenting a new baby - it all adds layers and texture to the story and will make them all the more meaningful as the years go by. If you prefer to have things 'just so', or somewhere in the middle (like me), then feel free to clear some surfaces before my arrival or even as we go.

Fine art prints

Your most treasured memories deserve to live on your walls so I work with a leading framer who specialises in the mounting and framing of photographic art. These beautiful, handmade, frames come in a variety of sizes and finishes to suit the style of your home.

A range of luxury thick mounts are available and specialist, ultra clear, glass comes as standard.

For the best quality prints with the most exceptional colour reproduction,
I use the same archival papers that are used in my heirloom albums. 

Available exclusively as part of my Storybook, Gallery & Ultimate Collections, the fine art print box provides a great keepsake for your family's photographs. The linen box provides a nest for your prints which are gallery mounted. 

My fine art albums are my favourite way to present your family's story and allow generation after generation to re-live the moments you never want to forget. Hand bound using traditional methods and new, eco friendly, print technologies. Your photographs are printed on a thick fine art paper from a sustainable source, using archival inks that will stand the test of time. 

Heirloom albums

Many of the families I photograph choose to have digital copies of their images as it allows them greater flexibility over the years, as well as the option to share with family and friends. Your files are presented on a USB stick in a hand-crafted wooden memory box, along with a complimentary selection of beautiful fine art paper prints.
