Newborn Photographer

Kent newborn photographer in Maidstone

Being a natural portrait and newborn photographer in Kent, I work around you, your family or baby, go with their flow. I love to use neutral colours and minimal props as I want your images to be timeless and on show for years to come. With all of my newborn photo shoots in Maidstone, I aim to make them as natural as possible. Capturing the natural essence of baby is my aim, a yawn or how dinky their features are, as some of you may know they grow way too quick.

Although family shots are optional with all my newborn packages, I do try to encourage families to get in front of the camera. I know you Mummy's are recovering from labour and all those sleepless nights doesn't exactly make you feel your best, but I'm a firm believer of having those intimate moments captured. You can never get this time back, so even if you only have a few, at least you will have something for you and your baby to look back and treasure when your'e older.

Its an exciting time during the first year of your babies life. Not only do they learn to smile, laugh and push themselves physically to excel, their little personalities start to shine through. From the first newborn session to a one year cake smash photo shoot, I offer baby photo sessions for every step of the way. Milestone packages are available at any age from 12 weeks upwards and are a great way to document your babies journey through their first year of their extraordinary lives.​

If you choose to have family shots, then we do these last as this is when baby is usually awake. I want you to feel as relaxed as possible, so just think of me as your babysitter for a few hours, with a camera of course. If you think I may be the right Kent newborn photographer in Maidstone for you, please do get in touch.

Pregnancy truly is a beautiful time in a women's life, so why not let me document your journey to motherhood with a pregnancy photo shoot. I keep things simple focussing on your and the connection you and your 'bump,' showing the amazing bond you have already with your unborn child.

Pregnancy sessions/bump photoshoots can take place either at my home studio in Loose, Maidstone, or outside in a place of your choice. You can wear whatever you feel comfortable in even if it's a white vest top and jeans. Being a Kent maternity photographer, It's all about capturing you in your natural state through pregnancy. I do offer the popular bump to baby package which is a great way to document your transition from pregnancy to motherhood.

Kent Family Photographer

NATURAL OUTDOOR FAMILY PHOTO SHOOTS, CAPTURING YOUR UNIQUE ADVENTURE

Family photo shoots work best outside so kids can play and run free. I love to get families to play around together doing normal family things. I find this works better as everyone feels less awkward and more natural in front of the camera. Just think of it as a play date with someone there to document it. You will find lots of ideal locations within the Medway and Kent area. I have a few favourites, but I'm happy to listen to any suggestions you may have. 

 

There are a number of different themed sessions I offer throughout the year including the popular Lavender and Autumn sessions. If you would like a certain themed session, but don't know when they occur please see below for approximate dates.

Frequently Asked Questions

Your questions answered

WHERE DOES THE SESSION TAKE PLACE?

In my home studio in Loose, Maidstone.

WHEN IS IT BEST TO SHOOT THE NEWBORN SESSION?   

The best time to shoot a newborn is within the first 3 weeks of birth. This is because when they are so young they are at their sleepiest so are much easier to pose for the shoot. But don't worry if baby is older we can still get those treasured newborn shots!

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE UNTIL MY IMAGES ARE READY TO VIEW?

Usually it can take upto 14 days to edit your images. It may take longer during busier times.

WHAT DO WE WEAR?

I personally love light neutral colours, whites and creams work best for my style.

HOW CAN WE GET THE BEST FROM OUR SESSION?

If you can make sure baby has a full tummy just before our session, and try to keep them awake just a little before, this usually works well.

WHERE DOES OUTDOOR SESSIONS TAKE PLACE?

Depending on what type of seating you chose, I use a number of locations across Kent.

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME OF DAY FOR AN OUTDOOR SESSION TO TAKE PLACE?   

The best time for your session is golden time. This is when the sun is a little lower which is later in the day 1-2 hours before the sun sets. This creates that beautiful golden glow to your pictures.
