Christmas mini sessions – James

My Christmas mini sessions were so much fun! It was a busy day, a busy few weeks, but Sasha (my eldest daughter, and assistant) and I had a lovely time. Getting to wear a Santa hat and play Christmas music at the beginning of November particularly pleased Sasha!

Little James was a star. He is such a smiley baby, his whole face lights up and it is beautiful to see. I had such a hard time narrowing down the photos for his gallery!

I’m so excited for Christmas now. And I really can’t wait to plan next year’s Christmas minis! Bigger and better next year!!!

Magali and Miles – Breastfeeding mini session

I love babies. I love everything about them. Small ones, big ones, ones with hair, ones without. I am a baby person 🙂 I find them equally as cute no matter how they are fed. But there is just something about seeing a mother breastfeeding her child that speaks to me deeply. It is something I feel passionate about, something that I truly believe is special. Not in a “breastfed babies are better” way, not at all. But in a primal way.

I am so honoured every time someone hires me to capture these moments for them. Often I am asked not to share, and obviously I completely respect that. For some feeding is a private thing that they want to record just for themselves, and that is absolutely ok 🙂 But that just makes it even more special when I am allowed to share!

Magali is one of those few who have consented to sharing. From the moment she told me she would prefer a public shoot to a home session I knew we were on the same wavelength! I think we were both overjoyed that the weather was kind on the day of the shoot, so we were able to head to the park.

The autumn colours were out in force and gave the location such a beautiful palette!

Miles was just adorable, giving me lots of smiles. Such a happy baby! Thankfully he was hungry too, so we were able to maximise the variety from the session.

I am so happy to have been able to capture these memories for Magali and Miles. The photos make me smile, and hopefully by sharing them we are doing our bit to help breastfeeding be seen as the natural, biological, “normal” act that it is.

Babywearing session – Katie, Annie and Olivia

My second babywearing session at Camber sands was with Katie and her beautiful baby, Annie. Olivia, Katie’s adorable 3 year old came too. My heart melted when I saw that Katie and Olivia were wearing matching carriers, just the cutest sight!


I wanted to shoot this beautiful family just how they were, lifestyle style. Olivia played and, with a little encouragement, interacted with her Mummy and baby sister. 


Katie had brought another carrier with her (Olivia also had a matching one again, but she had had enough babywearing for one day!), so she switched Annie over and we were able to capture some more gorgeous shots.


I was left with a bad case of sling envy! Thank you Katie, Annie and Olivia for a wonderful, enjoyable shoot.
