Newborn photoshoot at home

Leigh on Sea

Newborn session doesn’t need to take hours. Lifestyle session may be perfect for you

  • if travelling is difficult in early days due having c-section or any complications;

  • you prefer very relaxed, documentary-style vibe. These images are less about getting the baby in a perfect pose, and more about capturing the baby in a more informal way;

  • because it truly tells a story what early days with newborn baby means to a family and I think lifestyle images are unique in that they can really show a special connection – in a way that posed portraits can’t;

  • would like shorter, simple photo session and feel more comfortable in your own surroundings;

  • because it’s tough in early days to get everyone ready and out of door for photoshoot;

  • you like to be more flexible; lifestyle session don’t necessary need baby to be certain age for the posed images portrait session requires.

This photoshoot was taken when baby H was 4 weeks old. Big brother took charge of the photoshoot and kindly showed me all of his games, showed me his fav dino outfit and had a sing off with Eddie, the dog. Kind of normal morning with a toddler! We pretty much stayed in living room and just chatted away. We captured baby Hayden awake and asleep which was lovely and Ethan didn’t mind to get involved too and showed me plenty of times how much he adores his baby brother. It was a combination of natural candid moments and little direction from me, only for lighting purposes, otherwise we let things unfold organically. After hour and half it was time to go, just in time for some lunch. Thank you for having me xx

Hadleigh Castle

There are so many amazing locations that I get introduced to all the time, but I am nearly ashamed to say that this was my first visit to Hadleigh Castle (living in Leigh for nearly 9 years) here I said it! 

This is Clare’s family. I know Clare for over 7 years and she is the kind of friend who I don’t need to see in ages but time means nothing and we just pick where we left of, you know the one!

So, there were no plans for the session, just intention to show up. There was no preferred location so we picked one between our houses; no preferred activity so we took kite; no ideas or expectations of the final images – ‘just some of us together, you know anyway’, so we did just that! We run around the tower, blew some huge bubbles, wished we dressed warmer as it was cool and really windy (maybe too windy for kiting) and in the end realized that running after a kite wasn't too bad of an activity after all! Happy kids!

An hour went in blink of an eye, we laughed, we chatted, felt all the feelings, it’s not always easy to get in a flow of family fun; there are practicalities, reservation, some awkward moments, obvs kids involved; but it felt so good to let go of the final result, of having no ideas, of what you may have seen in your friends houses and solely concentrate on you and your family, it may surprise you how wonderful and unique you are in your own way! I love the way the story is told through their pictures, the connection between them and how well Darren embraced his pictures taken ;) Love you millions xxx
