I have a fascination with bumps, the baby kind that is! There is something special about maternity photography, watching mummies to be cradle their bellies, wondering what the life inside her is going to be like.
It's not just newborn photography that happens here at my studio in Oxfordshire. Sometimes we do something fun and different, and fun is exactly what we had when we unleashed the sparkle yesterday at one of my new 'Glitter Mini' sessions. The very...
I love to read and get creative. I remember the days before my daughter arrived when I would read 6 books in the space of two weeks, and now I would struggle to read 2 books in a whole year.In the days of technology and mobile phones, you can more often...
There are many things I’ve noticed that have changed in me since I became a mum. I weigh more and sleep less, and I am sure I have aged ten years in the last two!
New year, new start? If you’re like me and every January you swear to be a little bit healthier and a little bit slimmer, then no doubt you are either watching the likes of Tom Kerridge, or Jamie Oliver, or a whole host of other chefs on TV to get some ideas.
Whilst you’re still packing up the Christmas tree and you’re still catching up on all of your TV recordings, I’ve been busy planning for 2019. And in my mind wandering moments, I thought back on all the wonderful babies I have met in 2018.
Happy New Year to you all! I hope everyone had a magical and happy Christmas! It’s January and it’s competition time. I’m keeping busy making my plans for the year ahead, and I’ve got lots of exciting things going on that will I will be offering to customers over the next few months. I can’t wait to tell you all about it.
Naomi Woolfson, Embrace Bump to Baby, explains how you can experience a calm birth.
You may be wondering how the birthing mama looks so calm and collected throughout even though she is birthing in a pool in her living room!
Despite the weather being horrific over the past few weeks, I am certain that Spring will finally catch up with us and within a couple of weeks we will start to see the carpets of wonderful Bluebells again! There are so many wonderful spots to pick from for the Bluebells Sessions in Oxfordshire, we are truly spoilt with our counties beauty!
I’m embarking on a new project and am looking for a selection of girls aged between 15 and 18 to model for me.
If you have a daughter, niece, friend, cousin who loves to have her photo taken, maybe has a quirky style, and likes to play with hair and make-up, then this might be perfect for her.
Ok so it might be a little bit sexist and I’m all for daddy and me sessions too, but what better way to celebrate Mothers Day, than to have some beautiful pics of you and your precious babies. Whether inside the studio or outside in the snow, join me for a quick 30-minute session with your little ones, whether they are 5 or 15!
If you have a toddler over the age of 1, the thought of having any sort of photo session with them might be the most horrifying thought ever! The little toads rarely sit still, and getting a smile out of them is going to be impossible, right? No, not if we head outside.
A couple of nights ago hubby and I went out on a rare date night. Up to London to see a band and have a bite to eat. Nothing out of the ordinary, and a night that gave him a chance remember that I’m not always in trackie bottoms, covered in baby poo, or sticky fingerprints from my toddler, and that I did, in fact, have long hair that occasionally gets let down! Reminiscent of the times ‘before baby’ (or what we would call pre-S)!
Its a question I get asked a lot doing what I do! Like a typical mum, I’m super proud of my gorgeous girl so I often chat about her in the studio. And of course the question pops up, are you going to have another baby, or are you done now? And I have two very different answers to the question….
I frequently meet new mums, and when they find out what I do, the next line is hear is ‘I wish I had done a newborn shoot with ……..’ Of course I usually ask them why they didn’t and the same replies come up over and over again, so I thought I would take some time to answer those concerns in the hope that it may put your mind at rest if you are considering booking!
The last few weeks have been wonderful outside for the wide variety of beautiful backdrops in the Oxfordshire countryside. Despite the weather being very changeable, which to be frank, is nothing new for the UK. I’ve had some amazing outdoor sessions, gorgeous babies, lovely families, and some beautiful mummies to be, and have loved every minute.
One of the most common phrases heard from parents to me is ...'could you just photoshop my.....' (grey hair, arms a bit thinner, boobs a bit higher), and they chuckle away, no doubt secretly hoping that I will turn them from mummy to supermodel in the...
I am very lucky to have a 'job' which I adore. Don't get me wrong, there are days when I question my sanity. And every now and then I have a day when all I can do is grin from ear to ear. I was approached recently by the most lovely mummy to be who asked...
This is my favourite time of year for photography, especially in Oxfordshire. The fields are covered with an array of colour. From the bright, happy feel of the Rapeseed fields, and the fairy-like pink blossom trees - to the stunning carpets of Bluebells, which never...
If you missed out the newborn photo shoot stage - then a sitter session is a wonderful way to capture your little ones before they are totally on the move. The session takes place when your baby can sit and crawl, but doesn’t yet walk. Every baby develops differently,...
