Bump and baby shoot at the studio

We photographed Charlotte and Paul’s wedding in 2013 and when they got in touch to say they were expecting we were delighted. Due a few weeks after our second daughter was born, I was heavily pregnant myself when we photographed their bump photos and Evie watched as we photographed baby Charlie! It’s lovely for us to be able to capture the next step in a wedding couples journey and meet their wonderful creation. Here’s a selection from the shoot…

Family shoot in the best studio of all!

This summer we have loved using nomansland near Wheathampstead for our family shoots.  It’s such a fabulous natural studio with great versitility including high grasses and the much loved climbing tree.  Often our family clients are familiar with the area as they go there for walks and picnics, this enhances the nostalgia of their images in years to come. Here are a few from a shoot we did in September, 3 years on from the last shoot with us.   Boys will be boys!   soaking up the sunshine Love this one!         Brotherly love This is the frame combination that the client chose as a surprise for her husband 🙂

Family Photo Shoot in Little Gaddesden, Herts

We love meeting new families to photograph but equally we love seeing familiar faces return.  This family of four gorgeous boys have had 4 photo shoots with us now over several years.  It’s fantastic to see how the boys have grown and this time we met their new addition to the family, see if you can spot him! Their super home in Little Gaddesden was a great location for the shoot.  The boys were relaxed as they were at home and we played in the garden before going across the road to a wheat field that made a fantastic backdrop.  We think the environment makes the best studio!

Cousins enjoying the sunshine

A couple of weeks ago we met up with sisters, Olivia and Charlotte and their children to capture their special friendship. Now little Edith is sitting up it was an ideal time for the shoot and the time of year was perfect. Here is a selection of our favourites. If you are interested in having your little or not so little ones photographed please feel free to get in touch for a chat. We have a studio space on the outskirts of Wheathampstead for new borns and small babies and love to use the environment for the majority of our shoots. We hope to hear from you 🙂

Family photo shoot at the studio and on location

A few weeks ago we photographed 8 month old Charlotte who was absolutely brilliant.  The family came to the studio first then we headed out to a nearby location to explore the flowers and high grasses.  This is a lovely age to photograph the next stage of a child growing up as they are sitting up unaided and are very animated.  Here are a few of their favourites.

Baby shoot in the studio

I wanted to share a few shots from a baby shoot taken in the studio.  Baby Alara was an absolute dream to photograph and such a cutie. We photograph new borns and small babies in the studio as we can control the light to create the best photos possible.  We have a daylight studio but have professional studio lighting which we use when the daylight is notof good enough quality.  A catchlight in the subjects eyes is essential to make the image come alive, if the light is dull or in the wrong direction this is not visible and the image can look dull and lifeless. When children become more active we love to photograph them outside in the environment as we can
