Alfie’s My First Year™ Frame

Fiona and Toby wanted a story board frame, featuring photographs from their son's My First Year™ sessions, that would complement their existing frames (below) that I did for them four years ago after photographing their wonderful wedding. They've never been too keen on having albums of photographs, preferring instead to have framed pictures hanging in their stunning home! After Alfie's final My First Year™ shoot, we sat down to view all the images taken during the three shoots, and I asked Fiona and Toby to choose their favourite images. I then took these images away and came up with some … [Read more...]

SW17 London Baby Photographer- Matilda | My First Year™ | Part 1 | Tooting Bec, London

I was absolutely thrilled to be asked by a heavily pregnant Fran and her husband Ross to photograph their second child when it arrived. Fran and Ross were on the same National Child Birth (NCT) class as my wife and I back in 2012. We were first-time parents together as their first daughter, Ava, was born a few days after my own daughter. Having seen first-hand just how lovely this family are, I was really pleased to learn that there was to be a new edition to their   clan, with baby number 2 on its way! Matilda arrived on the 18th August and her first My First Year™ shoot took place on 28 … [Read more...]

Belsize Baby Photographer- Henry | Baby ahh Baby ooh™ | Belsize Park & Hampstead Heath, London

  Kirsten found out about me from her friend (and fellow Belsize Park resident) Jennifer, who's family I have been photographing for the past year. Luckily we were blessed with a lovely Autumnal day in London for the shoot, which was split between the fantastic Hampstead Heath and their beautiful family home. David, Kristen's husband, managed to take a morning off from work to join us for the shoot with their wonderful son Henry. So we were able to get some great shots of the family together, enjoying themselves. Henry was great from start to finish with his beaming smiles and … [Read more...]

SW15 Baby Photographer – Noah | My First Year™| Pt.2 | Putney, London

We were lucky to be joined by James's beautiful daughter Manon for Noah's second My First Year™ instalment (thanks again for the charm bracelet Manon! I still have it!). Manon was a fantastic help, knowing exactly how to entertain her little brothers, bring out their best and get them to show their beaming smiles! I was astounded by Manon's maturity and confidence. It was a pleasure to see how she has grown since I first met her when I photographed James and Marie-Laure's wedding. Manon's eldest younger brother, almost 2-year-old Eliott was pulling out the all of his best poses and smiles. It … [Read more...]

Baby photographer Guildford, Surrey- Eloisa | My First Year™ {Complete}

Eloisa's final My First Year™ shoot took place in the wonderful Wisley Gardens in Surrey. Wisley Gardens is a place I haven't visited before but I'll certainly be going back with my family and hopefully for future shoots! Eloisa's mum and Dad, Fiona and David are members at Wisley Gardens and it was such a great location for Eloisa's last My First Year™ instalment. The gardens allowed Eloisa to practice her new walking skills around an abundance of beautiful flowers, trees and resident animals! All in all it was the perfect setting! You can see previews of Eloisa's final My First … [Read more...]

North London Baby Photographer- Kai | My First Year™ | Part. 2 | Belsize Park, London

Last month I made a return visit to Belsize Park, North London to photograph Kai's second My First Year™ instalment. Kai has blossomed into a cheery little boy who is now proudly sitting up and cracking many great expressions and poses! The love between him and his mum and dad, Jennifer and Thomas, is clear to see, as it was in his first My First Year™ shoot. He is quite clearly the apple of his parents eyes and I can see why! Here are some highlights of Kai's second My First Year™ instalment. Highlights of Kai's first My First Year™ shoot can be found here. Thank you Jennifer, Thomas … [Read more...]

Milton Keynes Childrens Photographer- James, Lewis & Harry | Kiddywinks™ | Little Linford, Milton Keynes

I was fortunate enough to have photographed Rhiannon and Andrew's wonderful wedding back in 2009 and then last year they asked me to photograph 'smiley' Harry their third son.  I had yet to meet Harry's older brothers James and Lewis though, but in May of this year we made that happen and I photographed all 3 brothers together. This shoot took place at Andrew's parents (and the boys Grandparents) magnificent house in Little Linford, Milton Keynes. I first met Grandparents, Jane and Peter at Rhiannon and Andrew's wedding and we have kept in touch ever since, so it was lovely seeing them … [Read more...]

Essex Baby Photographer – Ella | My First Year™| Pt.1

Becca and Steve are our family friends and they are probably one of the funniest couples that we know! They have us belly laughing on a regular basis with their dry sense of humour and quick wit! The best thing about them is that they don't seem to realise just how hilarious they are! We were so thrilled to hear that they were expecting a baby and a few weeks after the birth of Ella, I was honoured to be asked to photograph her first year! In April I visited Becca and Steve at their home near Southend-On-Sea for Ella's first My First Year™ shoot. They were clearly proud as punch to … [Read more...]

Putney Baby Photographer – Noah | My First Year™| Pt.1

  Since photographing Marie-Laure and James's wonderful wedding in 2011 they have had 2 sons. Eliott was their first son, who I had the pleasure of photographing his first year. Here is their second son, the utterly gorgeous Noah, who I'll be documenting his My First Year™ too. Lucky me! Noah is pictured here as a 13 day old baby. He was extremely alert and responsive for such a youngster! He obviously takes after his big brother who was equally alert on his first My First Year™ shoot. Big brother Eliott was so good around little Noah. It must be a bit of a shock to the system … [Read more...]
