NEWBORN & BABY SESSIONS
Newborn sessions are still considered lifestyle sessions, but I offer something a little different with them. I tend to photograph all newborn sessions within the first seven to ten days of your baby's life earth-side, in the comfort of your own home. I know that it can be difficult to predict a baby’s arrival (whether you’re giving birth yourself, or adopting!) so I always note down your due date as well as a good time within the first ten days of baby’s life to find a good time to do the newborn photos. If the baby is late, that’s okay, just keep me updated!
I am more than happy to photograph older babies outside too (or tiny newborns if the weather is definitely going to be sunny!), but usually it's best to keep newborns inside where they can be snug and safe, and where you, as new parents, have everything to hand! Newborn sessions are one of my favourite sessions to do, as I can document you as you go about your daily life with your new little life, either at home, or somewhere important to your little family.

I offer all of my sessions in the Essex area, but I am always happy to travel further afield! Travel outside of the Colchester area is additional at the HMRC rate of 45p per mile.

Going back to North Devon, where I spent many of my teenage years, means catching up with old school friends. In April, I had the chance to go back to Devon to photograph Grace and Sam’s wedding…
By the way, if you’re organising a wedding in Devon, do get in touch as I’ve waived all of my travel and accommodation fees for Devon weddings in 2020 and 2021 in a bid to be down at the coast more!
Going back down to Devon wasn’t all work though, and, since two of my best friends have little ones, it meant meeting up with them for beach days with the kids!
You know the most awesome thing about the Ruse family? Not only did they book me for a Mother’s Day Mini Session, but I’m also shooting their wedding next year!
A family session with not one, but two one year olds! This was a first for me!
Bex, the twin boys’ mum, is the loveliest and she has followed my work for quite a long time, but the only hitch? She and her family all live in Devon! The last time I was in Devon, we couldn’t work out a day where we were both free to do a shoot, but things worked out in the end! It just so happened that I was back in Devon in April, the boys had just celebrated their first birthday, and their grandmother was visiting all the way from Australia, so it was the perfect time to do a shoot!
So, if you’re a keen follower here, you might remember that this year for Mother’s Day I decided to hold beachy mini sessions down at Cudmore Grove in Mersea to celebrate our wonderful mothers or mother-figures.
Well, they were so successful that I’ve decided to run Father’s Day Mini Sessions too, so get excited!
Our parents deserve to be celebrated don’t they? Luckily, there’s two occasions every year where we can celebrate everything they do for us, those being Mother’s Day and Father’s Day!
This year, to celebrate Mother’s Day, I’m offering mini sessions! I know how difficult it can be to round up all of the family for a lifestyle session, but mini sessions are just a quarter of the length of my usual lifestyle sessions, at just 30 minutes long, and these ones are for a very special price, too!
