Newborn Sessions

J S-Little Photography | Reading, Berkshire natural newborn photographer

There is nothing more special than the first few weeks of welcoming your lovely new bundle into the world. As a mummy of two, I can completely understand how quickly those newborn weeks pass (often in a blur).   I simply love photographing this special time - newborn babies in their new home. The best time to snap these magical moments, in a newborn shoot, is in the first 10 days, this way we can be sure to capture the lovely early curled up look, however we can of course achieve beautiful images at any time. 

I keep things beautiful and natural with newborn sessions, a mixture of baby alone and real family moments. Taking a lifestyle approach to the session means I can capture those gorgeous and real family memories - cuddles on the sofa, relaxing in mummy and daddy's bed or a quiet feed in the nursery. There will be no cheese - I promise! My goal is to capture natural moments, not to manufacture them. 

Now, I know as well as anyone, that birth dates are pretty unpredictable, so I am happy to try and accommodate  for the arrival of your little bundle -  may it be early, on time or late - book your session and we can find a date that works for you.

Sessions normally last 2 hours, although I work on baby's time, they run the session not me. As a mummy of two little ones, I can completely appreciate what day to day life is like with a new baby (beyond special, but a little unpredictable!) I am here for you and will never get in the way of your little one's wants and needs. I also feel completely at ease with holding and calming babies. One word used by most of my clients, to describe me, is 'patient'. My time with you and your new arrival is never rushed, I am there to capture that special time for your family! Your baby will never be this small, cuddly, sleepy and perfectly new again.

FAmily Sessions

There is something very magical about photographing families – little smiles, shared laughter and family joy.

I offer a 2 hour photography session in your home (easy location for you and a great familiar and relaxing place for children) or on location (in your favourite park or local woodlands). I work unobtrusively to capture natural and fun filled pictures,  of your babies/children (and you, if fancy joining in) doing what they do best – playing. Images filled with connections, movement and life - little moments that make your family, yours! 

One word used by most of my clients, to describe me, is 'patient'. My time with you and your family is never rushed. I am there to capture that special spark in your little ones and those gorgeous moments that make you the family you love. I also have two children of my own and feel completely at ease with all things life with kids has to offer - from tender moments to crazed laughter induced hysteria.

Because your family is so beautifully unique, your images should be too. This is how I photograph my families.
