Arlo’s new born shoot

A couple of weeks ago I spent the afternoon with Abbie, Aurin and their adorable baby boy Arlo in their home in Brixham. Here are a few of my favourites from the shoot, including their gorgeous Spaniel Jenson who totally loved having his photo taken! x

Irena’s family photo shoot at Bantham Beach

I used to visit Bantham beach as a child and I have vague memories of rolling sand dunes and surfers. I was reminded of how beautiful the beach is when I visited for Irena’s family shoot late last summer. The picturesque landscape and clear turquoise water made it a perfect location for a shoot and even though it was a busy summer’s afternoon we still managed to find some quiet areas to give the images an intimate feel.

Irena wanted her shoot to have a relaxed feel to it and for me to capture herself and her children naturally, enjoying time as a family by the sea.

Thank you Irena for inviting me to spend time with you and your beautiful children. I have since been back to this beach several times this summer with my twins- they love it! A great place for a family photo shoot! x

Jess contacted me a few months ago asking if I could take some photos of her and her gorgeous son Harry as a Father’s Day surprise for her husband. Obviously I was more than happy to oblige and even more happy when Jess told me “he loved them”

Here are a few of my favourites xx

Baby Leo (not a skateboard in sight!)

posted in: film, Lifestyle, little ones, Maternity, New born | 0

 A few months ago I was invited to photograph baby Leo at his home. It was a gorgeous sunny day as I drove along the coastal road to Anna and Bob’s home; a light filled house with seaside coloured décor and views overlooking the River Teign estuary.

Perfect.

And it really was.

I frequently look on Pinterest and other sites for ideas for my photography as I sometimes feel that I’m not being creative enough. There is so much competition in this industry and I started to doubt myself.

This photographer is doing this, that photographer is doing that…..

Am I being creative enough? Should I buy some props to take on shoots?

The other day I found a photo online of a new born baby on a skateboard.

Yes you read that right. A SKATEBOARD! And another was on a motorbike (apparently the dad was supporting the bike)

It just baffles me how people feel the need to introduce all sorts of bizarre props when right there in front of you is the most BEAUTIFUL baby, their legs curled up, their tiny little fingers and toes. Their perfectly soft hair. And complete overwhelming LOVE that is right before your eyes. And I decided that is enough for me.

And it was more than enough that day. It was amazing; the light flooded into the house, perfect for shooting with film. We didn’t need any baskets, watering cans, skateboards or motorbikes(!) to make this shoot an absolute pleasure to be part of. Thank you so much Anna, Bob, big sister Sophie and baby Leo for reaffirming my belief that all you need is LOVE xxxx
