Baby Photo Session

I am an experienced baby and family photographer, creating beautiful and natural photos of your baby, toddler or your twins either at your home, outdoors or in the studio in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire. As a mother of twin boys I remember fondly how beautiful and precious a new-born is, how quickly they grow and their personalities develop. The way a baby smiles or uses its tiny fingers to express is unique. Your babies’ special traits and endearing personality reflect you and your family.

As parents you may well be too exhausted to enjoy every moment of this perfect new life !
I will capture these special moments, a snapshot of family history to endure forever, well beyond the sleepless nights!

BEFORE THE SESSION

Prior to the shoot we will discuss your requirements. I can take the pictures in the comfort of your home or I can set up a studio in my home. Alternatively, depending on the age of your baby and the weather, we can take the photographs in your garden or a park.

My aim is to create a relaxed atmosphere for you and your baby to enjoy the shoot. Normally the session lasts between 1-2 hours when I will take a minimum of 50 images. There will be time for a feed and a nappy change and it doesn’t matter if the baby is asleep or awake during the session. My emphasis is on high quality images, an exceptional service and value for money. I want you to enjoy the images for a lifetime.

I live in Rickmansworth, West Hertfordshire and the session fee covers a radius of 15 miles which includes parts of Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Berkshire, Middlesex and London. For sessions further away or abroad a surcharge applies.

AFTER THE SESSION

I edit and upload a selection of  images of the photo session within 10 days on a secure web gallery. The gallery will be accessible for 4 weeks.

At the start of the gallery I will showcase what I feel are the best images, but obviously you can choose the images you like the most. You can create a list of your favourite images online in your own time and contact me to discuss the products and the final order. All the images are available in colour or black and white.

Alternatively, we can arrange a viewing for you to select your photographs, frames and album with me and I will advise you on the best presentation. I work with an excellent supplier of high quality frames and coffee table books to give you the best finish to your photographs. After you have made your selection, I will edit the images and remove any blemishes.The photos from the session will be accessible for a period of one year after purchase.
