Baby first year photographer Chelsea, London- Alfie | My First Year™ | Pt.1


I was thrilled to be asked to photograph Fiona and Toby’s new arrival, baby Alfie. I was lucky enough to have photographed their wonderful wedding, so it was an absolute privilege to be asked to photograph their new baby son too.

When I arrived we shared baby stories! Fi and Tobes had lots of questions to ask me, as my wife and I had a baby 8 months ago. It’s amazing how quickly time flies and you forget how tiny they are when they are newborns, but when Fi handed Alfie to me to hold it all came flooding back! It’s such a special time for them both, a time I remember well.

As with all my baby shoots I visited Fi, Tobes and Alfie at their family home. Their gorgeous home is just a few yards from The Chelsea Embankment on the river Thames. Full of lovely natural light and styled to perfection, this was the ideal place to photograph Alfie’s first My First Year™ session.

Fi and Tobes are fellow black and white photo lovers! Hence the large amount of black and white images featured in this blog post (bar 2 images that just had to be kept as colour images!) In fact they had two wonderful black and white story board frames from their wedding that sit proudly on the wall alongside their guest signature wedding frame. Since their wedding, we have become great friends and I was so happy for them when I heard the news that they were expecting! They were born to be parents- natural, happy and relaxed…. and Alfie is an absolutely gorgeous mix of them both!

Thank you Fi, Tobes and Alfie x

I can’t wait to photograph Part 2!

I take on a very limited amount of baby and child shoots per year. My diary is becoming very busy for 2013 so be quick if you are thinking of booking a shoot! If you are interested in a baby or child photo shoot you can see further examples of my work here, find out more about the photo shoots here or contact me for further information here.

    precious pictures which will be enjoyed now and many many years from now too. Beautiful and natural and delighted to see gimmick free.

    • Gimmick free zone here C. No funny baskets or suitcases 🙂
      I hope these images help Fi & Tobes relive many memories. First their wedding and now their new baby boy. I am honoured to have captured 2 life events for such a lovely lovely family.
      Thanks for looking and commenting and I hope all is good with C&C and the fam x

  2. What a handsome family
