Cake Smash photo shoot

cake smash photo

Cake smash photo shoots have become increasingly popular.  Having started in the US, the tradition has come across the water and many photographers are now offering these as a new way of celebrating a child’s first birthday. It was one of our wedding couples who introduced us to the concept as they wanted us to photograph their son’s first birthday.  How could we refuse! We provided the location, backdrop, flooring and professional images (oh, and the cleaning up of course!) and they provided the rest!  The photo shoot starts with a few shots of the birthday boy or girl.  And of course some of the cake untouched and any family photos requested. The birthday cake is then introduced and we capture what happens

Newborn twins photo shoot

What a pleasure it was to photograph these gorgeous newborn twin boys recently.  Not even full term, this truly was a special photo shoot. Their parents had been introduced to us by The Verulam Clinic in St.Albans where they had many scans during the pregnancy to check on their precious little ones. We, in conjunction with the Verulam Clinic, offer a complimentary pregnancy or newborn photo shoot for clients booking on their top scan package. This includes a 2 hour photo shoot and 8″x10″ photograph. We met Sarah and Jon for their pregnancy photo shoot when Sarah was around 30 weeks pregnant, this took place in the studio where we use a mixture of both natural light and studio lighting to capture memories

Lindsey & Andrew’s bump and baby shoot

We love seeing our wedding couples on the next chapter of their lives and recently we had the pleasure in photographing Lindsey and Andrew and their beautiful bump. Lindsey was 37 weeks pregnant and blooming!  It always fascinates and amazes me how our bodies change to accommodate new life and what a wonderful example below. It’s almost surreal when couples come back with their newborns so soon after seeing them with huge bumps, such a life change a day can make 🙂 Baby Harrison was gorgeous and happily slept through the majority of the photo session. Here is a selection from the two photo shoots.

Charlotte and Paul’s bump and baby shoot

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…

Newborn and sibling shoot at the studio

We had the pleasure in photographing this lovely family at the studio earlier this year.  They had recently welcomed their newest addition to the family and it was the perfect time to capture some newborn images along with some special moments with her older sister. For a premature baby she was surprisingly alert making for some lovely interaction shots as well as those peacefully sleeping ones. Here are a selection from the shoot.  If you are interested in finding out more about our pregnancy, newborn and family photography sessions please call me for a chat, Emma on 01582 469003.
