Professional newborn baby photography session in Beckenham, South London
22nd April 2013
Ooooh I love newborn babies! Here are my favourite pictures from a professional newborn baby photography session in Beckenham, South East London with 6 day old Charlotte. Her family is American, so she is named after her mum's home town - Charlotte in North Carolina. Very sweet!

It is important to try and keep your baby awake for a few hours before your newborn photography session, and feed them just beforehand. This ensures they sleep for as much as possible during the three hour photoshoot. Charlotte was an absolute angel and slept for the majority of the session - although we had a few awake moments where she needed to feed so I was able to get some wide-eyed shots too. Beautiful, natural images - and no hats or baskets in sight!!

Professional baby and child photography session in Catford, Lewisham, South London
22nd April 2013
There is nothing cuter than siblings when they get on, play together nicely and pose beautifully for the camera! Here are my favourite pictures from a professional baby and child photography session in Catford, Lewisham, South East London. Merry is 3 and took direction really well, and posed like a true mini model. Although she did get bored after half an hour and tried to drag me off to play in her bedroom!! Maeve, her 13 month old sister, is at that age when you cannot ask her to sit still and pose, so we just played lots of games of hidey-boo and I was able to capture her cheeky smiles and personality. The portrait of the two of them together is just so cute as well.... very natural. And the family adored them all! Sara-Jane x

Baby photography session in East Dulwich, London - 5 month old Isobel
12th April 2013
I don't believe in using huge amounts of props on my newborn, baby and child photography sessions - in fact pretty much the only ones I have are blankets and hats. I am really not a fan of the baby in a basket/ hanging from a tree images - I much prefer my portraits to be a lot more natural than that! But when they work they work really well!!! Here is 5 month old Isobel at her professional photography session in East Dulwich, London. The series of three pictures would make an amazing display on the family's wall. She is just sooooo incredibly adorable, don't you think? Sara-Jane x

Professional newborn baby, child and family photography in Clapham, South London
10th April 2013
Last week I had a professional photography session in Clapham in South West London to welcome baby Felicity into the world. At only 4 days new she was the youngest ever newborn I have photographed. I thought this would mean she spent the whole session sleeping, but oh no, she was wide awake, alert and as happy as anything. Abigail, her 2 1/2 year old sister, was an absolutely angelic child and a delight to photograph as she did exactly what she was told. Not to mention when I left I got a hug and a kiss with the words "I love you Sara-James". Now that's why I love my job :-)

I also got this feedback from the family after they had seen the pictures:

"We absolutely love them thank you so so much! You were born to do this job. We were allowing ourselves to hope for perhaps one or two priceless photos to fall in love with - never imagined tens of them! Can't thank you enough - you've made the end of our first week so special". Awwwwwww.
