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...]

Avery’s My First Year™ Album

Last year I sadly waved goodbye to a family that I have been photographing for the last year (and a bit!) Emily, Eric, Avery and the family dog Egan recently left London to return to the States. I had previously had the honour of photographing Emily and Eric's daughter, Avery 3 times in her first year (and a bit!) I photographed Avery for the first time when she was 8 days old, again when she was 8 months old and finally when she was 1 year and 2 months. Over this period I had photographed Avery as a sleepy newborn, crawling, sitting up and eventually walking. It was truly a memorable year … [Read more...]

This I can guarantee. My … [Read more...]

My girls pt. II {A personal blogpost}

8 months has passed since my last blog post about my girls- my wife Stephy and daughter Sia. Sia turned 9 months young yesterday so this post, 'My Girls pt. II' couldn't come at a more fitting time. I often tell my clients that time flies when you have a child and now my own words have been confirmed! Time really is flying, yet it feels as if Sia has always been here. I actually can't clearly recall what life was like without her around...but maybe that is the effect of lack of sleep! To be completely honest though I think Sia has made it rather easy for us and we really have been very … [Read more...]

My girls pt. I {A personal blogpost}

This post is a rather self-indulgent one... but how could I possibly resist! As some of you may know, I now have another beautiful girl in my life. The new addition Sia Grace Reardon was born at 11.45am on the 15th November 2012 at St George's Hospital, Tooting, London. Weighing 7lb 7oz. My girls are the best. Sia is 4 weeks young today. Time has flown, although it seems like she has been here for years. I'm a very very lucky man. I know this. I will treasure this time for the rest of my lifetime. Stephy (my wife)- I no longer need any Christmas or birthday presents as you have given me … [Read more...]

Baby Photographer Clapham, London- Baxter | My First Year™ {Part 2}

I must confess to getting rather excited when its time to do a photo shoot with this wonderful family. I met this family a few years ago when they booked me to photograph their first son when he was just a baby. This time it was the turn of their second son, Baxter for a photo shoot as he was due his second instalment of  My First Year™. Little brother Baxter is now 5 and a half months old and already has the same smile that his older brother, Barney has....a big wide grin that looks like a cartoon smile! Just gorgeous! These boys are going to break some hearts! Baxter is such a happy chap … [Read more...]

Child and Family Photographer Wimbledon, London – Elizabeth & Emma | Concept™

This photo shoot was a present for Emma and Elizabeth's Dad birthday. We shot this a month before Paul's birthday and the girls managed to keep it a secret! Well done girls, I am very impressed! This shoot also doubled as the family's annual Christmas cards too. Mum, Lisa, killed 2 birds with one stone! Clever lady! What a gorgeous day that we picked for the shoot. We had glorious sunshine and Autumn was well and truly in full bloom. Just look at the colours to see why this is my favourite time of the year for photos! We all had so much fun on this shoot. We blew bubbles, played catch, … [Read more...]

Baby & Child Photographer Kensington, London- hello again Avery | Baby aah Baby ooh™

Avery was born on Valentine's day and was only 8 days old when I first photographed her. Fast forward 6 months and she's grown into an expressive, bubbly and extremely cute little girl with the most perfect round cheeks! She is utterly adorable! During my second shoot with this lovely family, I got to witness Avery eating her lunch.....which was hilarious! She was demanding food like it was going out of fashion! Emily, Avery's mum couldn't feed her quick enough and in between spoonfuls, Avery was looking to me for food. It was very funny indeed! Egan, the family dog was just brilliant. … [Read more...]

Newborn Baby Photographer Canterbury, Kent- Oliver | My First Year™ {Complete}

So we have sadly come to an end of documenting Oliver's My First Year™. Oliver was just under a month old young when we started his My First Year™ journey. I have really enjoyed photographing this lovely family and watching Oliver grow has been a privilege...he has the best giggle around! Here is a small selection of highlights from Oliver's My First Year™ shoots. My previous shoots with Oliver, Isabelle, Hannah and Will can be found  here (MFY Pt. 3), here (Expression™ shoot), here (MFY Pt. 2) and on my old blog here (MFY Pt. 1).
