You will want to remember the day you first met your baby
You will want to remember how complete they made you feel. How they felt as you held them in your arms.
How completely perfect they were, fresh, new and ready to take on the world.
The hours you will waste just staring at the wonderous masterpiece, that just days before was inside your tummy being nourished and nurtured by your body.
That newborn baby smell, how they curled their finger around yours. Their tiny toes! Their screwed up eyes as they sleepily yawn and stretch, their milky drunk smiles.
You will sit there with your baby in your arms, wondering are those your eyes staring back at your or your partners.
These memories will live forever in your heart.
As a photographer and a mother, I know that these are photographs you will treasure, in the moment and natural.
Because even with a messy mum bun, the imperfections are perfection. This is why I photograph births and in-hospital fresh 48 sessions. Because nothing looks more beautiful than love and connection.

Our Birth, fresh 48 and newborn sessions explained
Documentary: Is photography when event unfold and it captured as is without directions or poses. It is the rawest most honest form of photography that delivers the most heartfelt memories. This style is how I shoot my births.
Lifestyle session: Might sound a bit strange but it's about capturing the environment and directed natural posing and encouraging interactions. We aim to capture your new family together as they really are, lots of cuddles, interactions, and love, I will suggest places to sit and stand or things to do but we really want real interactions. These sessions are for fresh 48 and in-home hatched sessions.
Posed sessions. This where the photographer has full control usually studio based the baby is placed into poses and there is heavy use of props. Babies need to within the 5 to 10-day window for a fully posed session.
Fresh 48 - is a fancy phrase for after birth in- hospital sessions Done within the first three days of babies life. they are classed as a lifestyle session.
Hatched newborn- my name for posed sessions because I am more relaxed and use a mixture of lifestyle techniques and posed techniques. Because of this approach, I can cater for older babies in your home environment.
