Hats are cute... but that's it! Newborn photography shoot in East Dulwich, South London
28th June 2012
Unlike many other professional baby and child photographers, I believe in the totally natural look for your newborn baby. Swaddling a newborn in a blanket, with an animal hat, in a small basket, in a field.... that's just not my style! However one thing I do agree with.... hats are cute :-) Especially the stripy ones with the long tails. Here are some of my favourite pictures from a newborn photography shoot in East Dulwich, South London.

Ever fallen in love.....I did, at my baby and child photography shoot in Dulwich, South London
21st June 2012
I absolutely fell in love with 10 month old Daniel at my baby photography session in Dulwich, South London at the weekend. Such a little model and check out those gorgeous big eyes....

I wanted to share with you the two most important tips for getting close ups of newborns and babies. Having your aperture wide open is important for the blurry background, but if the babies eyes are not on the same focal plane you won't get both in focus. F4 - F5.6 is optimal, stay away from F2.8. The second important thing is your focus points. Use a single focus point and focus on the pupil. A perfect close up of your child!

Actor in the making? Baby photography in Clapham, South London
19th June 2012
This weekend I was on a baby photography shoot in Clapham, South London. Here's my favourite images of 9 month old Ted... he had a range of great facial expressions!! I love being a professional baby and child photographer when babies are this cute! Luckily the weather held out so I was able to get some photos of him crawling around the deck with the perfect catchlight in his eyes. No bright sunlight to throw shadows onto the face but perfect natural diffused light. The family loved these pictures of him. Sara-Jane x

Families in black and white - professional photography in Bromley, SE London
11th June 2012
I really love black and white photography when it comes to families. They are timeless portraits which last forever. Here are my favourite pictures from my professional baby and family photography shoot in Bromley, South East London. Very natural and informal images captured on the parent's bed. I especially love the one of daddy laughing with his son - heartwarming :-) Sara-Jane x

Bathtime is fun! Baby photography in Beckenham, South East London
05th June 2012
Yesterday I was on a my first paid professional baby photography session in Beckenham, South East London.... what an exciting time for ShutterBaby!! I left my 15-year job as an accountant in March to set myself up as a baby, child and family photographer - scary but I am so glad I took the leap!!! The photoshoot was with the very adorable 1 year old Yoen. He was very excited to be able to have a bath in the middle of the day and just get to play with the water!! The pictures are amazing and mummy and daddy loved them! Sara-Jane x
