Recording little milestones {Wallington family and baby photographer}

Babies really do change and grow so quickly and in the blink of an eye your tiny newborn will suddenly be bounding off to pre-school. As parents we do a pretty good job of pulling out our phones to capture all the delicious stages of our children’s development but we’re rarely in the pictures ourselves. This is one of the reasons why this gorgeous 5 1/2 month old’s parents invited me to their Wallington home. I loved capturing these beautiful moments for them - the little fists in the mouth that accompany teething, the excitement of her emerging ability to sit, and importantly this little family together and so very much in love.

The photos are unbelievably beautiful. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience we will cherish these memories forever.

Baby and parents in home photography session {Sutton baby and family photographer}

Photographing babies when they’re around four or five months old is such a treat. At this age, babies really come alive and engaged with both the camera and their parents. And let’s not forget those sweet, squidgy baby features. For me it’s just as important to capture the joy of parents and so I always encourage mum and dad to get in the frame. I had the pleasure of visiting this gorgeous family at their home in Sutton, South London a couple of weeks ago. Here are a few favourites…

An at home baby and parents photography session {Baby photographer, Wallington}

I was delighted when these lovely new parents got in touch to request an at home photography session with their 7 week old baby boy. Having just moved into the area a couple of months beforehand, they were keen to capture some special memories of this new chapter in their lives.

At this age, babies start to become wondrously aware of their surroundings and just how much they are loved and this little one was no exception. It was so lovely to be able photograph the very special love and connection baby, mum and dad had developed in such a short time...

2017 {Newborn and family photographer, Surrey}

They say that when you find your passion you'll never work another day in your life and I've found this to be amazingly true since starting my business just over a year ago. I've met so many lovely people - both new clients and fellow photographers - attended some inspiring workshops, won four Bronze Awards in the The Guild of Photographers Image of the Month competition, as well as having my work featured several times on The Teabreak Tog community pages.

I'm really proud of my achievements this year and I thank each and every person who has liked or commented on my work or referred me to a friend. Your support means so much to me. I'm especially grateful to all the wonderful families I've had the joy of photographing throughout the year - it's been a huge honour to capture so many memories for you. It's impossible to share something from absolutely every session but here are just a few of my favourites from the year...
