Baby and family photography session in Colliers Wood, South West London
25th July 2013
Last month I went to Colliers Wood in South West London for a baby and family photography session with the very beautiful 4-month old baby Sasha. Her uncle had bought the family a gift voucher for Christmas, before Sasha was even born!!! Sasha's mum loves to dress Sasha up in pretty dresses and bows, and as you can see we had many outfit changes during the session. All the dresses and bows could be interchanged of course though!! All that modelling wore poor Sasha out, so she had to have a little power nap at the end. Which I took advantage of by getting some cute sleeping portraits as you would with a newborn baby!! Here are my favourite pictures from the shoot, although it was hard with so many gorgeous photos to choose from!

Baby and family photography session in East Molesey, Surrey
21st July 2013
Earlier this month I met the very gorgeous 13-month old Alexandra at a baby and family photography session in East Molesey, Surrey. I have been totally loving this beautiful weather, which has allowed me to get some amazing natural lights portraits. With photos outside, it is important to stay out of direct sunlight to avoid squinting and shadows. Alexandra had just learnt to walk, so didn't sit still for long.... so I also took some photos of her in action! Here are my favourite pictures from the session.

Baby and family photography session in Chislehurst, South East London
15th July 2013
I met the very sweet 3-month old baby Abigail at a baby and family photography session in Chislehurst, South East London a few weeks ago. She was very beautiful and posed nicely for her photos, but the session wore her out so she needed a little power nap towards the end. No problem.... I just took some portraits of her asleep - which the family loved as they didn't have a newborn photography session when she was little!

Here is some lovely feedback from the parents: "Sara-Jane did a fantastic job taking some amazing photos of our 3 month old daughter. We were happy with the quality of the prints too. The photo session was relaxed and she had some great ideas for different poses that worked really well."

Hope you enjoy the pictures!

Newborn baby photography in Camberwell, South East London
10th July 2013
A few weeks ago I went to Camberwell in South East London (5 minutes from where I live, bliss!) for a baby photography session with the gorgeous 6-week old Ossie. Not quite a newborn, so none of those curled up baby portraits I love so much, but he already had such a fab smiley personality that I think his parents were right to wait a few weeks to have his photos taken. I was able to capture some beautiful images which the family loved. Which one is your favourite? I think I like the one where he looks like a mini buddha myself :-)

Baby photography session in Redhill, Surrey - 6 month old Thomas
05th July 2013
Last month I went to Redhill in Surrey for a baby photography session with the very adorable 6-month old Thomas. 6-month old babies are amongst my favourite to photograph, as their personalities are starting to shine through, and you can get a lot of different poses - sitting, lying and my favourite, the tummy time poses. Thomas had such a smiley personality and was an absolute delight to photograph. I knew his family would love all of the pictures I took of him, as they were all so gorgeous. I like to think it's all because of my skills as a baby and child photographer but I think I need to credit the model here!!!

Here are my favourite photos from the session.

Baby photography shoot in hotel in Kensington, London
02nd July 2013
Last month was a first for me.... I was invited to a hotel to take photos of a woman's 4 month old baby while the family were on vacation in London. It's the only time I have ever been asked to do a baby photography shoot in a hotel!! Luckily hotel beds are big with lots of white sheets and pillows and so a perfect setting for a mobile portrait "studio"! Faris was an absolute angel from start to finish and we were able to get the pictures quickly before he needed to nap (I would want to nap if I had been lying on a comfy hotel bed for an hour!).

I was quite impressed with myself at how quickly I was able to turn around the photos - the shoot was on a Friday and by the following Thursday his mum had all the edited photos on CD and five prints to take back with her to Abu Dhabi!

I love the cute little baby outfits that his mum dressed him in, what do you think? :-)

Outdoor baby and family photography session in Fetcham, Surrey
02nd July 2013
My first baby photography session with the gorgeous Amelia was when she was 6 months old. Her parents had purchased the Watch Me Grow Package where the family get three photoshoots over the course of a year, so last month I visited again when Millie had just turned one. The family had moved from their small flat in London to a large house in Fetcham, Surrey with a lovely garden. Fortunately, the weather was perfect for taking photos outdoors, and as Millie had just learnt to walk I was able to capture movement with a high enough shutter speed (this is not possible indoors when using a flash). As well as running around, Millie's favourite thing was sitting in the baby rucksack on her dad's back, so we got a few pictures of that too! Hope you like the photos!
