Mummy and Me! Mini Photoshoots 2019

Mummy and Me! Mini Photoshoots 2019

I’m so excited to announce the return of my popular Mummy and Me mini shoots for 2019.

These sold out so quickly last year I thought it was about time to bring them back. As mums, so often we are the ones capturing pictures of our families, we avoid being in the pictures (mum buns and dry shampoo anyone?)

I know as a mummy myself how many photos I find myself missing from, or as the professional how often it is me behind the camera, so it’s time for us all to exist more in pictures. Not only for you, but for your children and families to treasure forevermore.

It’s important you know this isn’t about buying new outfits and having to look perfect, this mini session is all about you and your child/children snuggling up to you and capturing you all just as you are, because that’s who they like best.

This is also a really great way to celebrate Mother’s Day (early gift idea!) and for you to say thanks

What is a Mummy & me mini sessions?

Held at my home studio, these sessions are 15 minutes long*, trust me, this is the perfect amount of time to capture some simple, natural and always beautiful portraits of you and your children. The perfect timeless memory.

Unlike a full-length photoshoot, this will be a simple set up with no outfit changes – I’ll advise you before the shoot on what works well outfit/dress wise.

Please be aware that mini sessions are suitable for babies 8 weeks old + upwards (not suitable for new-borns due to feeding on demand and short time frame) but I have several packages for new-borns that you can find HERE.

*If you would like longer in the studio with no time restraints, more outfit changes, different set ups and props, and more images in your gallery to choose from, then you can book a full length shoot off my main pricelist, please get in touch with any questions you have about this.

Pregnancy diaries - 35/ 36 weeks pregnant bump shoot

Pregnancy diaries - 35/ 36 weeks pregnant bump shoot

 

First things first the pregnant bump shoot bump shoot. The morning of the shoot was a little hectic. Well, Jasmine was her usual self, playing with her toys while I got myself showered and beautified for the photos. In my usual style I was having a clothing meltdown which was heightened by the fact I'm pregnant. I'm sure some of you can relate. I ended up bundling several items in the car and then dashing out of the drive only to realise I needed petrol. Not only were we running late, I had the moment of 'oh s**t' I have no bra on. Not my usual move but necessary to avoid strap marks before the photos. All I can say is thank goodness for pay at the pump! Arriving late, Jess welcomed us in and we had a fabulous time and loved every minute. A relaxed shoot with lots of fun for Jasmine. Thanks Jess. Oh and in pure Bridget Jones style, afterwards I realised that my underwear was back to front!

later in the week I had a midwife appointment which was slightly manic, mainly because Jasmine just couldn't keep quiet or still to the point of her toppling over backwards on a little stool. Anyway, iron levels aside, Baby M is tracking a similar size path to Jasmine at this stage and my blood pressure was normal. Oh and we're engaged head down. A birth plan was mentioned too which I smugly said I'd prepared one and wanted a water birth in the MLBU. With that we were free to go!

 

 

Despite having a sore back and experiencing pretty intense cramp in my calf muscle I decided it would be a good idea to get on my bike. Well, I rode Andy's bike and he was on mine with Jasmine on the back. It wasn't as if we were tackling a 100 miler but the exercise and fresh air was nice. All 4 miles of it!

 

Work has been busy which is good but has taken it out of me a bit. Massage can be pretty physically draining. Also with a baby that doesn't stop moving you get tired quickly. Oh and occupying an almost 3 year old comes with challenges! Growing has also increased, as Baby M is putting on fat. My tummy is getting tight, hello stretch marks 😩 I must say though the foot and back rubs have finally been introduced by Andy. We've also been practising breathing and visualisation before bed which really helps get us off to sleep. The only down side is that I wake so many times because my back hurts or I need the loo. Then I have to tackle the millions of pillows tucked between my legs before I can move. Which then means getting back into to bed is impossible! Oh well only 4-5 weeks left until we see Baby M. We are so excited now we just want her here.

The milestone you have to capture, sitting babies and their personality!

The milestone you have to capture, sitting babies and their personality!

 

If you’re a parent, or a proud auntie or uncle, you’ll know that there’s something truly magical about newborn babies. Images of newborn babies sleeping peacefully are enough to melt the hardest of hearts and capturing this fleeting part of a child’s life is a fantastic way to keep a part of your newborn forever.

 

As children become more confident and begin to babble and move on their own, the opportunities for capturing unique images only increase. Once babies reach the age of six to nine months, they’re able to sit up all by themselves. Having a photoshoot done at this stage gives you the opportunity to capture some truly special images, giving you a memory you can treasure forever.

 

 

Cpturing your baby’s personality

 

When babies begin to hold themselves up, smile and interact with the people around them, their personalities really begin to shine. With a little gentle coaxing, most babies of this age will grin for the camera. These heartfelt, toothless smiles (or with one or two tooth pegs peeking out ) are truly priceless. They show the child’s developing personality and make for spectacular photos.

 

As well as smiling, this stage of a baby’s life often involves a lot of toe grabbing. A photo of a baby munching on their tiny feet is a fantastic memento of this precious period and is a must have for all proud parents out there.

 

 

Smile or no smile

 Sessions are fun and not forced , I am all about captuing your child as they are , whether its a gorgeous serious face and or their joy as we play a game of peek-a-boo.

As sessions are relaxed and fun, they’re enjoyable for both the parents and children, making for a great family exeperince.

 

 

Sitter sessions

 

If you’d like to capture timeless images of your child as they grow, a sitter session is the perfect choice. Full baby sessions with siblings can be booked any time . And for a limited time only in September Sittter mini sessions are available, ensuring there’s an option to suit you and your baby perfectly. Be quick and book here.

If your child isn’t quite at the sitting stage, give us a call to discuss our Watch me Grow package and the other sessions we offer.

Looking for a baby photographer to capture your newborn’s first few months?

Baby Photographer Norfolk Blog:

Looking for a baby photographer to capture your newborn’s first few months? 

 As every parent will tell you, those first few months of a child’s life will fly by in an instant. Before you know it, your newborn will be crawling, walking, talking and heading off to nursery. Capturing this unique time in photos won’t just give you precious memories to look back on, it will also give your child an important and beautiful record of their very first days, weeks and months. If you’re currently searching for a talented baby photographer in Norwich, here’s what to look out for to ensure you get images that capture the unique personality and beauty of your baby.

 

Choose a photographer with experience

 As you probably know by now, taking photos of newborn babies isn’t always easy. Most newborns sleep for the majority of the day, and if they’re not asleep, they’re often feeding, being winded or being changed. Taking a beautiful image that captures the personality of your baby takes time, patience, understanding and skill, so it’s important you choose a photographer who knows exactly what they’re doing. And though all babies will react in a slightly different way – and you can’t always guarantee they’ll play ball - an experienced photographer will be able to get the best out of your baby and take photos you’ll be able to treasure forever.

baby photographer

Photographing newborns

 Newborns are typically brought into the studio when they’re between 5-14 days , I photograph newborns up to 3 weeks old and then offer a mini newborn shoot for 4-12 week old babies.In those early days babies have that distinctive newborn look, (little flakes of skin , button noses, whispy hair) something that’s wonderful to photograph. Often, newborns will be photographed asleep. Though you may also want images of them with their eyes open, sleeping photos make wonderful mementos and will look great on your wall for years to come.

As parents of newborns will know, it can take a while to get a brand new baby settled when they’re in a new environment. That’s why it’s a good idea to book a shoot that’s at least two hours long. As well as making the experience more relaxed, this helps to ensure you’ll get great images even if your baby is a little unsettled for part of the shoot, the photographer's job is to soothe and settle making this your chance to enjoy a hot cuppa.

 

Siblings

 When looking for newborn baby photograper in Norfolk, it’s a good idea to book a photographer who’s happy to take images of your older children too. That way you can ensure all the family feel included in the occasion and capture priceless images of your babies together.

To find out more about newborn photography in the Norwich area, give me a call/ email or take a look through my newborn galleries.

These were very popular last year.

I do not like over pose and force family images. My favourite image of my two children is them giggling at each other,  unaware I have captured that cute moment forever. So this is what i will be doing on the day.  I'll set you up in an area but let the children lead and make it fun . Mums and Dads be prepared to offer some piggy back rides and play peek-a-boo!

The location/ backdrop will depend on where i shoot on the day at the farm. This will be determined by the weather & when i pop back in the summer months to see where is best for family portraits to take place.
