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...]

Family Photographer Kent- Poppy | My First Year™ {Complete}

2014 seems to be the year of the one year old for me! In the last few months I have completed lots of My First Year™ shoots for my clients. Whilst at the same time welcoming in many new My First Year™ clients. Poppy's first year was one of those that has recently come to an end. Adorable Poppy is just a day older than my daughter so it has been great watching her grow and develop in tandem with my daughter over the past year and a bit. We completed Poppy's My First Year™ photographs with a trip to Hamstreet woods, followed by a visit to her Grandparents' glorious house. Luckily, we made … [Read more...]

Baby Photographer Cambridge- Sam | Baby aah Baby ooh™

It was great to visit my hometown of Cambridge for this shoot. I met Sam's parents, Jen and Rich through my mother in law (thanks Jules!) who plays golf with Jen's mum! Sam had a whopping 10 hours sleep the night before the shoot (I like to think that he was resting in preparation for his modelling debut!) so he was on great form; wide awake, bubbly and full of giggles.  He has the most adorable smile, his whole face lights up and Jen and Rich certainly know how to get those smiles flowing! It was a great shoot..lots of fun with such a lovely family. The last photo in this blog post was … [Read more...]

SE21 Children and Family Photographer- Joseph & Emeric | Kiddywinks™ | Dulwich, London

I met Beatrice and Stephen- Joseph and Emeric's lovely mum and dad - through another of my portrait clients. They had seen some of my photos I had taken of their friends children and earmarked me for a photo shoot with their boys! We staged the shoot in the glorious Dulwich Park, Christ's Chapel Gardens and Lovers Lane in Dulwich a few hours before the sunset. Dulwich is a place that whenever I pass through it, I think to myself that I must visit and hopefully do a shoot there. Well now I have! I am so pleased as its such a great place for a shoot! The 2 boys were fantastic throughout … [Read more...]

Family photographer Clapham | Barney & Baxter | Kiddywinks™

It's always lots of fun when I visit these two little guys, Barney and Baxi. Always lively and never disappointing, not remotely like work! Having photographed them both on lots of occasions since they were very young babies, they know me very well and are very comfortable with me and my camera. There is never a dull moment when these boys are around! Thank you once again Zoe, Jason, Barney and Baxter! It was a blast as always. Until next time. x I take on a very limited amount of baby and child shoots per year. If you are interested in a … [Read more...]

SW10 Baby first year photographer – Alfie | My First Year™ | Pt.2 | Chelsea, London

My gosh, little Alfie is growing up to me a handsome young man! I made a welcome return to Fi and Toby's Chelsea flat at the beginning of December last year to photograph Master Alfie. It had been 5 months since my first visit. During that time Alfie has grown loads and his personality was starting to shine bright. He is the perfect mix of Fi and Tobes. I fully expect him to be walking on my third visit…watch this space to see if I'm right! We'll be visiting Battersea park for Alfie's third My First Year™ instalment as it was the place where I photographed Fi and Toby's pre-wedding shoot. … [Read more...]

My First Year™ Album & Frame Collections

The ever popular My First Year™ service is made up of 3 photo shoots. Shoot 1 captures your tiny baby as a sleepy newborn, Shoot 2 captures your bigger cackling 6 month old and Shoot 3 captures your (wobbly?) walking and talking (kind of?) one year old. In the past most of my clients have had an album or collection of frames at the end of their baby's My First Year™ adventure. However that meant waiting a whole year before they had any gorgeous albums to show off or frames to proudly display on their walls (unless they ordered products along the way). This got me thinking…and I came up with … [Read more...]
