My Best Of 2018 Family Photography

Wow, what a year last year was. SO. MANY. BABIES. It was very touching to photograph so many past wedding couples’ newborns, it’s the best feeling being invited back to capture the next chapter of peoples’ lives, as well as the second or even third child of my previous family shoots. So 2018 was a year full of love, and little ones. I had quite a busy compacted wedding season which meant I only had space for weekday shoots, I try and advise people if you’d like a weekend shoot with your older children, it’s best to get in touch at least 6-8 weeks in advance, as Saturdays get booked up quite quickly!

I did around 20 family shoots last year, and I had the loveliest time looking back through all the images I took!  It was a fair few thousand, and it’s always a challenge to choose the ones I love the most. I find that most professional photographers will capture lovely images of children and family looking at the camera and those typical ‘framed images for the grandparents’ so I have tried to narrow down this post to ones that really made me feel something. All I care about when I’m photographing families is trying to capture the little ones’ character and spirit. Children are so blissfully unaware for the most part of how they behave and act, all their darling little quirks and looks. Their cheeky ways and their loving glances towards their new siblings always amaze me. Another thing I ADORE being able to shoot is the parents! They spend so much time snapping pics on their phones, that they are hardly ever in any images with their babies. This is what makes my job so precious, usually visiting newborns around 7 days old, knowing in just a few short weeks they will have grown so much, and change so much! I will always treasure the ability I have to do this for a living. Here are my favourite lifestyle, family and newborn images from 2018. Bring on 2019 and all the babies I am so excited to meet! <3 xxx

Evie & Benj – Family shoot

A beautiful family shoot in Richmond, Surrey.

I first met Evie when she was actually a bump! Her mother, Sarah, was a bridesmaid for me for one of my weddings a few years ago, and I was thrilled when Sarah asked me to come and capture them as a family after Evie was born. Fast forward three years or so, and I was delighted to be reunited with such a lovely family who were now four! Look at little Benji!! What a dude!

We headed to Richmond park for this shoot. It’s so nice to be able to get outdoors for shoots, especially to let little ones run around exploring. They usually feel much more relaxed and more themselves this way, and allows me to capture them naturally. We had a blast playing in the Autumn leaves and beautiful Indian Summer light. Autumn is by far my favourite time for family sessions! If you fancy some updated photos of your family, please get in touch! I’ll leave you with my favourite ones from this shoot…x

Theo & Lottie

Family photography

Getting the call from a mother letting you know their second has arrived is oh such a lovely moment! I last photographed dear little Theo as a newborn a few years ago and WHAT a cheeky gorgeous chappy he’s grown into! He was so sweet with his new baby sister Lottie, as well as excited to be part of the action again too!

There is something rather special in being able to capture siblings when they’re still so little. It’s not easy for the older child and I know the parents are often worried about jealousy, but in most cases, and this one, they usually relish in being able to cuddle and hold the younger child. Theo was so gentle and tender with Lottie, who herself was a total doll, so well behaved for our session, much like her brother when he was the same age! Kudos to their Mum and Dad who are clearly wonderful, loving parents!

I absolutely LOVE shooting family photography in the home, being able to get those first moments in the nursery, as well as capturing them playing with their toys. It truly is an honour, and I can’t wait to head back next time to see how much they’ve grown again! Here are some of my favourites from our session earlier this year.
