A Family shoot in Horsell Common Surrey

Another Sunny day to bring a smile!


Maternity shoot

Thursday, 19th September 2019

The summer holidays seem to have flown by – I can’t believe it’s back to school time already. We had a fab time discovering the British seaside this year from the Isle of Wight to Weymouth! I wasn’t brave enough to venture abroad with two yet but luckily the weather did not let us down and sitting on a beach in the UK has often felt like being abroad. I was particularly impressed with the beach West Bay with it’s eye catching cliffs and amazing play park – adding it to my favourites with a toddler!

I don’t know if it’s having a toddler that makes time go super speedy or the fact that you’ve done it once before but Eleanor seems to be growing up so quickly, I just want to hit the pause button for a second! It only felt like yesterday she was in my tummy but it’s hard to believe she ever fit in there now she’s 5 months! It makes me appreciate the importance of capturing every precious moment.

And big congratulations to this adorable family on becoming a four, it was a joy to capture you together before your new little fella arrived! I loved every second of our shoot together…


Our little bird

Thursday, 6th June 2019

We welcomed our little bird Eleanor Wren into the world in March this year and I have been enjoying lots of cuddles! Although there are lots of new challenges I am absolutely loving being a mummy to two! I thought I couldn’t love Alex more but seeing him take on the role of big brother to Eleanor makes my heart melt – I couldn’t be happier!

It makes me appreciate even more the role of capturing precious moments together in these early stages – it’s just going so quick this time round!!! I want to savour every minute. I look forward to sharing more photos with you as they grow and also capturing memories with your family.


Personal Branding shoot with Little Twinkle Toes

Thursday, 14th February 2019

Happy Valentines hope you are doing something lovely to celebrate!?

I’m just blogging my last few shoots now before I take a little break – just 6 weeks to go before our new baby girl arrives March 2019 and Alex is getting excited about the prospect of his baby sister – especially as he’s put in an order for her to bring cake on her arrival.

Having previously shot product lifestyle shots for all the gorgeous products available on www.littletwinkletoes.com, which have featured in publications such as My Baba, Baby Magazine and OK! Magazine, I recently had the pleasure of visiting it’s founder Kate at her surrey home to capture the person behind the brand. 

Like myself Kate is a mum and expectant mum and so knows how precious every moment is! She uses that knowledge to design with her husband Ollie, unique personalised products and select beautiful British handmade items. She has worked with many a celebrity, such as Lille Lexie,Cara De La Hoyde,Jacqueline Jossa and Tyla Carr on making their Baby Showers & Gender Reveal parties extra special, and I too was lucky enough to sample Little Twinkle Toes giant gender reveal balloon for our new arrival (a girl!)

Although I will be taking a break, I am booking shoots in for my return to work, so if you are looking to take your brand to the next level with a personal branding shoot or your News Years resolution is to start up that business you’ve always dreamed of doing I’d love to hear from you!


Sunbeam Minis

Monday, 24th December 2018

Happy Christmas all! Hope all your last minute wrapping is now done and you’re tucking into a mince pie with a nice glass of mulled wine (non-alcoholic in my case). I’ve had such a wonderful year watching Alex grow from a baby into a little boy, from his first steps at the start of year to being potty trained last month, he has amazed me every moment and I couldn’t be prouder of what a lovely boy he is becoming. I can’t wait for him to become a big brother to ‘Mini’ next March – exciting!!!

Thank you to all who have supported my photography business this year, I have loved meeting so many lovely new people and receiving such positive feedback. I feel so blessed to be able to capture such special memories for my clients and can’t wait to continue capturing those special moments that make life so magical!

Special thanks to the Sunbeams Toddler Group  #CCwoking #wearewoking for inviting me to do their Christmas Mini sessions and inviting me back for next year to capture more laughter and cuties – can’t wait!

 

 

 


Welcome home little one

Thursday, 15th November 2018

I love a newborn at home shoot and have been lucky enough to have been asked to capture a few families recently, whose babies I first met in mummy’s tummy!

Nothing beats photographing those first few weeks when you bring your new baby home, it is such an overwhelming feeling of joy welcoming them into your family and wrapping them in love. 

Those first few weeks involve a lot of sleepy cuddles and kisses which are so so precious but over time fade with all the excitement of the journey ahead which is why I love that I am able to have the pleasure of capturing this special time as a lasting keepsake.

At just shy of 4 weeks old, this little one was already settled into his new home and family, enjoying lots of cuddles and kisses from his doting mummy, daddy and older sister! He already seems to love the camera – giving me the sweetest peek over mummies shoulder! Cue cuteness…

 


Pumpkin picking

Monday, 29th October 2018

Hope you all had a fun half term last week, my happy little pumpkin and I I had a fun day out at Secretts_Milford farm. Luckily I had just brought Alex a snuggly coat and hat so he was well prepared for tractor rides, running around the field and attempting to pick up pumpkins twice his size!

After carving fun faces together we enjoyed some warm pumpkin soup, yum! 

Now excited to edit newborn family shots taken at the weekend…get ready for cuteness!

 


Growing Family

Friday, 21st September 2018

Beautiful settings with a beautiful family! What a joy to capture the growing love between sister and baby bump! It’s the little moments in life that will be cherished for ever! Holding tight, little hands and feet wrapped around you, that brief moment in the sun, thinking about the extra laughter and love he/she will bring when they arrive!

 


A new baby brother

Thursday, 5th July 2018

There is nothing sweeter than being asked to photograph a new little arrival and the overwhelming joy they bring to their family.  Lifestyle sessions are a great way to have a relaxed and calm photoshoot, Baby L was so calm the whole shoot and his brothers were soon keen to get in on the action showering him with hugs and kisses- thank you again for letting me be part of this special time!


Little miss sunshine

Thursday, 7th June 2018

The sun is out and it looks like it os here to stay – yay! Isn’t this little buttercup just the picture of summer!

We had a very sunny photoshoot and it was a joy to capture those first steps, barefoot with grass between her toes.
