Not only am I a mum myself to three wonderful and lively children, but I am also one of the few photographers in the UK that hold the Craftsman status with the Guild of Photographers in Portraiture. I have over 7 years experience handling and photographing babies and have attended various newborn training courses. Your baby’s safety is always paramount for me and all my sessions are baby led meaning that baby sets the pace of the session and the poses that they are comfortable with. Every baby is different and every session is different!
I am fully qualified and insured and my craftsman with the guild of photographers is a live qualification that is continually assed andchecked for insurance and safe posing and as their member I am bound by their code of conduct.
I have a beautiful custom built studio in the South of Birmingham by Longbridge town centre. After many years of a being a mobile newborn photographer, I have found that being in a studio environment is the perfect situation. Not only does it give you the comfort of being in a relaxed environment where everything is on hand to ensure your baby will be safe and comfortable, all props are available and interchangeable should baby not settle in a particular prop or we feel the colours do not suit baby.
Many returning clients from my “mobile days” have enjoyed the experience of the studio visit far more than having their home disrupted with with lots of props and equipment which can take over an entire room. It does also mean being in a studio environment, I will have some sets ready for your arrival based on your chosen colour scheme so all focus is on baby (always a cuddle first).
