There were 180 images submitted representing the best of the best from each affiliated Photography Society and Club across Sussex. This year, 2018, I won the Bronze award for my Fine Art Portrait entitled ‘Phoebe’.

New Studio!

My studio has been doubled in size and it has given me so much more space to move around. This has made a huge difference for shoots like newborn and Cake Smash as they require several set up throughout the session. I can now have two separate set ups ready to go. We have incorporated a changing area too for my Maternity and Fine Art clients to change behind. I have usb charger points for clients too as well as the baby changing unit, bottle warmers, tea, coffee and drinks area and comfortable seating too. My props are easy to view and access too so clients can see what is on offer. Parking is directly outside the door which is perfect for disabled access too.

Bring a prop

My aim is to create beautiful photographs during your Newborn Session that you will treasure forever. To do this I always invite parents to bring along any special items to the shoot. They are often items like a beautiful blanket that Nanny has crocheted, or an old teddy which was once Mummy's favourite. Sometimes the items can be larger, like this stunning 'toy' car that Mummy and Daddy bought for his nursery.  These extra special elements make the Newborn Session unique and personal to that family.

 

New Props

As a Newborn Photographer it is important to always be producing new and creative images. One of the ways I do this is by introducing new props. My latest prop is an absolutely adorable hand made 'hot air balloon' . This prop is so versatile as it is a perfect for little boys or girls as I've used neutral colours  and looks fabulous with any number of different coloured backdrops. The hot air balloon can be personalised with that crocheted blanket or hat knitted by Nanna, or with the beautiful soft toy gift too.
