This newborn baby girl started well for her photo shoot and we captured some beautiful natural photos of her as she lay on a lovely, chunky blanket all swaddled in a wrap. This was also a good moment to photograph some of those gorgeous close up details, such as hands, feet and face.
She then became less settled once we moved to some capture some family photos with mummy and daddy. These still make beautiful moments as we observe parents cuddling their wee baby to settle them.
Even reportage moments of the parents finger feeding their newborn baby capture those early days of parenthood.
And then settled in mummy's arms.

We had such fun when doing the maternity shoot for this family earlier in the year. Now their newborn baby twin boys had arrived and what an adorable pair they were!
We began the photo shoot with the twins lying in a plaster cast that had been made from mummy's bump during her pregnancy.
We then captured a variety of images of them against a dark background, including some close up photos.
We then did a set of family portrait photos using a black backdrop for the background. Grandma, who was there to help, was obviously also included here. There was so much love and pride - such a beautiful session!
The twins then looked so cosy in a soft blue blanket with wooly hats.
We finished with a few photos of the family and the twins up in a bedroom.

I had been recommended to this couple by a previous client. I came to their home on a beautiful development on the banks of the river Thames in Fulham. The sunshine on this spring day was stunning and the cherry blossom was out. So we began the session in the gardens of the development
We then moved into their apartment for some bright, interior pregnancy photos.

I had photographed this little boy when he was a baby and again for his first birthday. It was now his second birthday and his family wanted some natural, outdoor photos for this session and we chose The Rookery on Streatham Common for the location. A great place for young children to explore and also a very beautiful, well maintained walled garden.
We had lots of fun among the flowers and waterways of the garden, which was great for a strong-minded young boy to enjoy his adventures.

I have photographed this family on a few occasions now, since their first daughter was a baby, her first birthday cake smash, their second daughter's newborn session and now this little girl's first birthday cake smash and celebratory photos.
We did a whole range of photos to celebrate this first birthday milestone with both the two sisters together and the birthday girl on her own and also a splash photo in a bath tub with bubbles.
We also captured the eldest daughter on her own.
As before, the Indian dhol came out.
And finally, some family portrait photos.

I had done the maternity and newborn session for this family last year. Now this little girl was a year old and they wanted to celebrate this milestone with a pink cake smash. She was such a smiley, happy girl and very much enjoyed getting into her messy cake!
Big sister then joined in with some serious cake eating.
And in fact took over as little sister left her to it!
We then focussed on getting family photos.

This gorgeous newborn baby was so well behaved for her photo shoot. I came to their family home in Putney. I had brought along a variety of props, wraps headbands, but this baby's mummy had also bought many of her own and also she had a grandma who had made some of the most beautiful headbands I have seen.
We did a variety of more posed photos during this session and this little girl was utterly adorable!
We then did some mummy and baby photos.
With grandmothers also there to help we captured photos with these wonderful ladies too.
