The Williams Family | Newborn Lifestyle | Bedfordshire Newborn Photography

I first met the Williams family when they joined me for a bluebell shoot last year and it was so lovely to see them again and meet their gorgeous new addition to the family. It really does mean so much to me to see families again and again and to capture them as they grow. This session was very relaxed; tea, catching up and lots of laughter! Nothing too staged or intrusive which is the last thing you want when you have two small children. Thanks so much for having me Williams’, hope to see you again soon!

The Banks Family | Family Lifestyle Shoot | Scottish Family Photography

Although I am based in Bedfordshire, I can often be found visiting family in Scotland and Wales and I am always happy to take bookings while I'm there. My most recent trip up north included a  relaxed shoot for this family at their beautiful home near Dundee.  

At home sessions are quickly becoming my favourite kind of shoots to do; spending time with families in the comfort of their own home and capturing the magic in the little things they do together everyday.  Everything changes so fast, children grow in the blink of an eye and the things you do together one day have changed to something else the next - I love being able to record lasting memories of these moments that might otherwise be forgotten as we move on to the next age and stage. 

Here are a few of my favourites from this 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.

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!
