I never write anything about myself, to be honest I find it a bit embarrassing, but when I was looking back through all my 2016 shoots to make this collage, I felt extremely proud of what I have achieved.
Nine years ago I remember seeing this type of ‘Anne Geddes’ style of newborn photography in a newspaper which were taken by an American photographer. After doing some internet research I soon discovered that it seemed to be the new trend hitting America but very few photographers in Britain were producing this style of work. I saw a niche in the market and thought to myself ‘how hard can it be to photograph cute babies!’ – oh how wrong could I have been!
Back when I started there were none of these amazing courses that can teach you everything about being a newborn photographer – no incredible American photographers flying over to Britain telling us how its done (which, if you are starting out I would totally recommend the investment in a workshop). I literally had to teach myself – from posing the baby safely, using natural light, to camera settings and all the post production work in photoshop. I asked Google A LOT of questions!!
Here I am about to embark on my eighth year as a specialist newborn/baby photographer and would like to say a huge thank you to all my clients for trusting me to capture these precious memories for you, for all your recommendations and returning business. Of course, none of this would be possible without the continuing support from my amazing Mum and Dad. For always believing in me and encouraging me to be creative. From my Mum knitting me my hats and blankets, for doing the book keeping and accounts, to my proud Dad literally stopping pregnant women in the street and handing out my business card! (much to my Mums embarrassment!) And not forgetting big Bro with all his business ‘know it all’ and IT brains.
I am so excited to see what 2017 has to bring and can’t wait to meet all the new little people who will be born and meet up with my previous clients to see how much your babies have grown.
To celebrate the success of 2016 I would like to run an offer throughout the month of JAN. Book a ‘Newborn Session’ or ‘Sitter Session’ for any date in 2017 and receive 50% off your Sitter Session and 25% off your Newborn Session fee.
