I love photographing families, and I've had the pleasure of photographing this lovely family in the past, before their little daughter Abbie came along. And also a maternity session just before she was born. It was so fantastic to photograph them all together in this studio setting in my home, for this family photo shoot. Lots of love and laughter during this session, and wee Cullen even made some gluten free cupcakes for me! (with a tiny bit of help from his Mum). Ah my heart just melts ...
I know! I know! I'm a shocker at keeping my blog up to date! Along with Jasmin doing makeup and hair, I can now offer styled sessions. "Make me Feel Fab", makeover sessions is for all ages, so if you have a special birthday coming up whether it be 21st or 61st, or you just feel like being pampered, why not think about getting glammied up and getting some gorgeous shots done. These sessions can be up to 3 or 4 hours, starting with makeup and hair, and with a few changes of clothes, we can create several different looks.
Recently I did a Maternity shoot with the lovely J. We were chatting away during the session, and talking about photography, and I mentioned that I would love to do birth photography.
Well at least I would like to try and see if it was something I wanted to pursue. A week later I received an email from J, saying she remembered what I had said, and if I was keen, then her and her husband would like me to photograph the birth of their first baby. Her husbands family live in the UK, and it was a great way of them being part of such a wonderful time of their lives. Wow! I was honoured to have been even considered never mind asked to be involved in the most special time of a couple's life. We had a couple of conversations about it, so that we were all on the same page, and then at 1am on the 15th of August the phone rang.... and almost like an expectant parent myself, with my bag ready and prepared (gear bag that is!), jumped in the car and headed for the hospital....
As to the question of whether birth photography is something I would like to pursue? Then the answer would be yes!
Oh my days! I couldn't resist sharing a few more... I think I could well start sprouting feathers.... Baby's just make me feel clucky....!
And little feet and hands. I just could not resist!
I have four of my own children, and know that feeling. You just can't hide that look of being totally in love with your baby.
and its easy to see why....
I believe in working with you to create images you will love, and cherish, because "It's all about you!"
