As a photographer it’s obvious that I love to take photos.. They reckon about 1.2 Trillion Photos are taken each year but that’s as far as it goes, they stay on a phone, maybe end up on social media but they very rarely get printed.
I however, love to see them in print. The day the photos arrive I still get excited! Don’t worry I’m like the rest of you, I don’t print every photo, I still have tons that sit on my phone but I still love to print some of them.
I started doing photography because I wanted other people to be able to have beautiful photos of their children and families, just like I do. I started off only providing galleries for clients, where they could view the photos in the comfort of their own home and look at their photos at their own leisure but still not see a print.
The next stage would be to purchase prints or photos on a USB stick… but again, rightly, or wrongly, photos would not printed and they would stay safe on the computer or USB.
This is why I decided that I wanted to start doing a reveal wall.
What is a reveal wall?
A reveal wall is photo set up of all your edited prints. Once your session has been completed I edit your photos and then print them ALL off as 7×5 inch mounted prints. This enables us to meet up and allows you to see EXACTLY what your photos will look like. You can see your beautiful gallery up close and decide easily which photos you would like to purchase.
Your photos look great on a computer or your phone but they will look stunning when you can see them in your hand. The other great thing about the wall is that if you decide you like the 7×5 inch prints you are able to purchase them and walk away with them that evening.
If you have ANY questions about the reveal wall please do not hesitate to leave a message below or contact me for more details.
This was part 2 of my newborn session with this little beauty and she was still just as well behaved. This time she brought along her big sister who was also an amazing model and it was clear to see that she loved her little sister. There were so many tender moments between them, I was able to just let them enjoy some cuddles and capture them all.
During times that Katie was feeding I was able to capture some lovely images of Emily who was just so relaxed and a joy to photograph.
Meeting Katie for a newborn photo session part 1
It was such a pleasure meeting Katie, as I work with her mum in my day job, so being able to capture some beautiful images of her daughter was very exciting. What made it even better was the fact that we share a love of the beach so I was able to do my first themed photo session. When I set this up I was so excited
and I couldn’t wait for the day to come round when little Katie would come to my studio.
After lots of feeding we were able to settle Katie very well for her session but she did something that really made me work… she LOVED to sleep with her tongue sticking out. It was a very endearing look and a memory that will make them laugh in years to come (I know because my own daughter used to stick her tongue out in the wind and we lived on Anglesey where it was ALWAYS windy so she constantly had a lizard tongue 😛😛) However, as cute as the little tongue was we decided we didn’t want it in every photo as it would be nice to have some of Katie looking beautiful without her tongue out.
And we managed it.. We were able to poke it in just long enough to grab some peaceful photos before she put it back out. It’s definitely made a funny session as we couldn’t stop laughing every time she’d poke it out, it was like she knew the camera was there and wanted to have some fun.
For this session I did it in two parts as Katie’s big sister was away so we did a family session at a later date and I’ll add the photos as soon as possible..
This little baby boy was just a dream..
It was such a pleasure to be able to capture his first memories and he just slept so well.
His big brother was very proud of him and just to give him lots of cuddles.
Are you pregnant? Do you know someone that is pregnant?
I am now taking bookings for newborn baby photo sessions at my studio in Billingshurst, Sussex.
The best time to book your session is as soon as you find out you are pregnant, it is only once your baby arrives we then confirm the actual date, not before. The arrival of a new baby is a crazy time and one that passes in a blur so you will be extremely excited that you were organised enough to book your session, which is ideally done within the first two weeks. You can then relax knowing you have some gorgeous memories of your baby….
I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas and that the New Year brings you great happiness.
The end of 2016 was a very busy and exciting one for me but I have been unable to share any photos as many of them were gifts for friends and families.
I had lots of babies in the studio along with their families which is always fun because the big brothers and sister don’t always want their photos taken, so ideas don’t always go to plan….
but what comes out of the session are the more natural shots which actually capture the true expressions of the children.
I was also extra excited because one of the babies being photographed was my nieces little boy, who was an absolute dream and slept for his whole session.
I cannot wait to get stuck into 2017 and the adventure that it brings….
Now taking booking for Newborn sessions… I only work 2 weekends a month so spaces book quickly.
Feel free to contact me for more information on how I can provide a relaxed photography experience for you and your baby…
Sessions start from £30…
