Child photography at the Dish and Spoon, East Dulwich
24th August 2012
Last week saw the second of my mini baby and child photography sessions at The Dish and The Spoon in East Dulwich, South London. If I thought it couldn't get more chaotic I was wrong! Several mums didn't turn up, but there were a few walk-ins who took their places. There were a few sets of siblings who are difficult to photograph. The eldest often runs off, or the youngest cries, so to get them to both look at the camera at the same time is a challenge to say the least!!! My favourites this time weren't the little babies but the older children.... they loved the camera and I was really able to capture their individual personalities :-) Sara-Jane x

Playtime photography in Ealing, West London
14th August 2012
This weekend I went on a child photography shoot in Ealing, West London where I met the lovely Amy and George. Amy was wearing a pretty dress, and George some very cute dungarees. I got some lovely photos of them posing, along with some amazing family images with mum and dad. But the thing I love most about being a baby & child photographer is capturing the natural moments in a child's life. The photos of the two of them playing in sand and water in their mini wetsuits are by far my favourite of the day. Sara-Jane x

First mini photography session in East Dulwich, South London
07th August 2012
Last week saw the first of my mini photography sessions at The Dish and The Spoon in Nunhead, nr East Dulwich in South London. There were 12 mums at the cafe, who each got a 10 minute slot for me to take photos of their newborn, baby or child. It was so much fun, although a little chaotic with some kids refusing to smile, running off or needing to feed mid session. Being a baby & child photographer requires a lot of patience and flexibility to deal with this!! Luckily all the mums were very relaxed about it, and quite happy to sit and enjoy a yummy coffee and cake while they waited. It really was a great morning, and I'm looking forward to the next one already. Here are some of my favourite photos from the day. Sara-Jane x

Face painting child photography at EPL, Clapham, South London
01st August 2012
Last week I was at Eat Play Love, an amazing cafe on Battersea Park Road in Clapham, South London. EPL has a variety of children's activities on during the year, a soft play area for your babies and children and an amazing menu for parents. I was the official child photographer at their end of term party, which included face painting and a disco. It was so much fun and I really had to exert willpower not to go and join the kiddies dancing. Jeanette, who runs EPL, is am amazing face painter. Here are some of my favourite photos from the day. I especially love the cat. Meeeooow!! Sara-Jane x
