"Photography takes and instant out of time, altering life by holding it still" - Dorothea Lange

 

Newborn Shoots.

Ahhhh, newborns.  The best time to take photos of them is when they're still very young; between 5 - 14 days.  They're still really sleepy, love to be swaddled and curl themselves up into those lovely positions that you can see in my gallery.

After 14 days, they start to become much more alert to the outside world and it's becomes much more tricky to create those cute newborn photos that everyone loves.

For newborn shoots, I'll normally come to your house and bring props such as hats, headbands and furry throws with me.  However if there's something special that you'd like to use or have a specific shot in mind, just let me know when you book.

The room that we use will need to be nice and warm, and baby needs to have had a good feed beforehand so that they're in a nice deep sleep for most of the session.

Your photos are carefully edited and put into a password protected online gallery on my website so that they can be viewed.

 

 

Baby and Little People Shoots.

Photos when they're a little older can be done as studio style shots, or in a more relaxed, informal style.  I'll come to your house and we can take photos inside and/or in the garden, or we can meet up at a fabulous location.  We're lucky that we have Wollaton Park and Nottingham Castle nearby, as well as Newstead Abbey, Clumber Park and Rufford Park providing beautiful backdrops for fun and photos. Ducks and playgrounds are bonus extras!  (Please note that parking/entrance fees are in addition to the cost of the shoot.)

Your photos are carefully edited and put into a password protected online gallery on my website so that they can be viewed.
