The Prutton Family | Autumn Family Shoot in Ampthill Park | Bedfordshire Family Photography

Autumn is pretty much my favourite time of year for outdoor shoots…beautiful colours, gorgeous light and not too hot or cold. It also lasts for quite a while with the trees all changing at different times, so it really is a great time of year to schedule in a shoot! I met up with the Prutton family in Ampthill Park last November for their family session. We had a little walk around the park (which was looking stunning!) climbing trees and throwing leaves as we went. Here’s a little peek at their session!

Winter | Newborn Lifestyle Shoot | Bedfordshire Newborn Photography

As I am sure you will agree, the first few weeks after having a baby are such a special time that pass far too quickly.  It is such an honour to be invited into people's homes in the midst of it all to capture it.  I often wish I could go back and relive those precious first days of my own children so a  newborn lifestyle session is the perfect way to remember those moments when your memories become hazy with hormones and sleep depravation. 

Little Winter was just under two weeks old when I did her newborn session.  I was reliably informed she liked to sleep all day and party all night, but obviously it was far too exciting to have her photos taken and only when we had nearly finished did she finally drift off.

The Robehmed Family | Family Shoot at Campton Woods | Bedfordshire Family Photography

Autumn is pretty much my favourite time of year for family shoots.  I love summer; the lavender fields in bloom, sunshine, hazy days and sunsets in cornfields.  And of course I love spring with its daffodils and bluebells and blossom and that magical feeling of the sun warming us up again after a long winter.  Even winter is beautiful, especially when there is snow or frost and I love the colours that everybody's winter hats and scarves bring to a shoot.   But for me, Autumn is really the best.  The light is beautiful, the colours are amazing, its not too cold and everywhere just looks perfect!  When I met up with the Robehmed family in mid November, the woods were looking their absolute best.  As we stood under the leaves they were falling gently around us, we could not have asked for a better backdrop!  Here are a few of my favourites from their session. 

Owain | Newborn Lifestyle Shoot | Edinburgh Newborn Photography

I arrived at Jan and James' house at lunchtime on the 2nd August, when baby Owain was around a week old.  His arrival was perfectly timed, especially given my plans to arrive in Edinburgh only two days previously.  Jan and I have been best friends since we met at Primary school and James and my husband are cousins so this was a very special shoot indeed and I was delighted I was able to be there to do it and most importantly, meet Owain!  I have so many favourites from our afternoon together which also included lunch, tea, cake and rather a lot of baby cuddles!
