Newborn, baby and child mini photography sessions in East Dulwich, South London
26th July 2012
I am very excited to be doing my first mini professional baby & child photography session at The Dish and The Spoon in Nunhead, nr East Dulwich, South London tomorrow. I will be photographing newborns, babies and children in 15 minute intervals for two hours. Families will get a 6 x 4 photo included for only £5. The first session was so popular it sold out in a day!!! So we added another session on 16th August, again this sold out like hotcakes. We are thinking about putting another session in at the end of August if demand is there. Please contact shona@thedishandthespoon.co.uk if you are interested.

The Dish and The Spoon is a fabulous cafe which has excellent coffee, cakes and light meals (I can highly recommend the sausage ciabatta :-) and space for babies and children to have fun. They are also running an activities programme for children over the summer holidays. See their facebook page for more details.

Pictures from the day to be posted soon!

New photography collaboration in Clapham, South London
17th July 2012
I am excited to be working with London Mothers Club. Check out the blog at London Mothers Club for details of my photography collaboration with them. I will be running photography classes showing mums how to take better photographs of their babies, newborns and children, using compact cameras or smart phones. I will go through composition, exposure and lighting, tips for posing and each mum will have individual help on how to take a photo of their little one. Each class will be very informal and the emphasis will be on having fun and a time to relax, with the added bonus of having some practical tips and some nice photos of your children to take home afterwards.

Also take a look at their other events: LoMoc offer classes in card making, jewellery making, flower arranging, child nutrition, personal style and much more. The beauty of each event is that you can bring the little ones along as nannies will be on hand to help supervise them.

Natural baby and family photography - Wimbledon South London
10th July 2012
I am a big fan of natural family photography rather than staged studio-type poses of the parents and baby, trying to get everyone to smile at the camera at the same time, which can result in unnatural "forced" photos. This is my favourite picture from a recent professional newborn baby photography session in Wimbledon, South London. The way mum and dad are looking at each other makes me want to melt! Photos like this are the reason I prefer to do all my work at your home or on location rather than at a studio. Much more relaxed and natural images are the result :-)

Finally a girl!! Newborn baby photography session in Bromley, South London
03rd July 2012
All of my recent newborn and baby photography has been of little boys, so I was very happy to go to Bromley in South London for a professional newborn baby photography shoot with 5 month old Evie. Isn't she just the cutest little girl? :-) She loved posing for the camera and despite not having eaten or taken a nap she was happy for an hour and a half. Normally I leave additional time on a shoot to allow for mid-shoot feeding/ napping but I didn't need to with Evie! The family absolutely loved the pictures below. Sara-Jane x
