    Maternity memories

    There are so many ways these days to celebrate and share the excitement of pregnancy, from the moment you find out, to announcing your news to your loved ones. From planning weekly or monthly ‘bump selfies’ to booking 3D & 4D scan photos for a gender reveal! And with birthing classes, pregnancy fitness, baby showers, bump casts and newborn photoshoots to plan, not to mention the regular dates to check-in with your midwife, your 9 months of pregnancy will pass quickly and before you know it, your little one will be here!

    Top 5 baby items for new Parents

    Our newborn sessions can last for up to 4 hours- because we work at baby’s pace. If baby needs a feed or a cuddle, we stop for exactly that. Our tiny clients have timescale all of their own and we work around their needs. While babies are being fed and soothed we have lots of time to chat to parents about the wonderful and amazing experience that is having a new baby. Over time from listening to our new Mums, we’ve been able to pull together a ‘must have’ list of baby essentials for new parents. So (apart from the…

    Award Winning Newborn Baby Blog

    This morning I woke up to my phone buzzing… literally! Not my usual alarm, but the arrival of an email informing me that our humble little blog had won an award from Feedspot Blog Reader… We are number 7 in their list of The Top 10 UK Newborn Photography Blogs! Just Wow! So, putting my excitement to one side, as my real alarm was now calling, and the usual morning rush ensued, dragging an unenthusiastic pre-teen out of bed, making packed lunches, ensuring the guinea pigs were turfed out into the garden for free food, checking school bags were packed,…

    Nia ~ 7 days

    Beautiful baby Nia has a gorgeous big brother to look up to and protect her as she grows! We had such fun with Hayden too, capturing his personality and love for his brand new little sister. Happily showering her with sweet little kisses for the camera, he too was comfortable and relaxed in his home, able to play with his favourite toys while we were photographing his baby sister for her newborn gallery. These two are going to have such fun growing up together, and we feel privileged to have been able to document the beginning of their fun together…

    Sophie ~ 9 days

    They say all the best things come in small packages! Tiny Sophie is simply perfect. We just couldn’t get over her shock of gorgeous shiny dark hair. This beautiful baby girl was a sleepy superstar for her newborn photo session. In the comfort of her home on The Wirral, with the family dogs keeping a close eye on their precious new charge whilst they too snoozed, Sophie sweetly dreamed through most of the photos, waking up briefly to reward us with some wide awake shots of her big blue eyes. We love her beautiful gallery…♥

    When photos and memories are all you have left…

    The 12th of the 12th 2017 is a date that is etched into my conscience, painfully and permanently! The day I said goodbye to my beautiful horse. A freezing cold and beautifully bleak winter’s day with a golden sunrise making heaven seem a place you could almost touch. And in those final moments while my heart screamed a silent No! Not yet! Not now! My head was firmly resolute that this was the ultimate precious gift I was able to give her. A closing gesture of love. Yet all I could think was that I didn’t have enough photos…

    Jacob ~ 34 days

    We loved meeting this little bundle, Jacob was a teeny tiny 5lb 6oz when he was born. He was a very determined little man, and at 4 weeks old, already knew exactly what he wanted – cuddles! He was just so cute, and really didn’t want us to put him down for his photos, he made us work very hard for those sleepy shots. But he gave in eventually, snuggling into some comfortable photos for us to capture this stunning newborn gallery for his Mum and dad. xx

    Darcie ~ 7 days

    This little squish was simply stunning and oh so sleepy! At only a week old, Darcie didn’t give us many opportunities for a wide awake open eyes photograph, but she was simply lovely to work with for her newborn session at her home. Happily sleeping through all her poses on our comfy beanbag, and only momentarily waking as we snuggled her into our cosy rustic basket. Her beautiful gallery made it difficult for us to pick our favourites to share…
