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…

At home family photography session in Purley {Family photographer, Purley}

I love being invited to photograph families in their homes as it's such a perfect way to truly immerse myself in the family environment and capture those really lovely moments of connection. Before too long all those little games your kids enjoy and those funny little quirks become a distant memory and so being able to freeze the moment is so special.

I had so much fun with this family. We started out in the playroom where the children showed me their favourite toys and read stories with mum and dad. When the sun came out we headed into the garden for some swing action. So relaxed, so real - just a family doing what they normally would on a Saturday morning. Here are a few of my favourite images from our time together...
